My wife and I went here tonight for dinner. It was meh! The food wasn’t great (good enough) but nothing special. Food was pretty bland and didn’t have a lot of flavor. I had 3 enchiladas (I’m celiac), my wife had the Budin, and we shared the chips/salsa/guacamole. The guacamole was very tasty but could’ve been spicer. Ordered medium (for my wife) but didn’t have any kick unfortunately. The guacamole was the highlight of the food. Now keep in mind the guacamole was $16, which is over the top for price. Personally, out of the meals we have had during the past 3 days this the our least favorite. On a side note I have celiac and I DIDN’T get sick. So the food is safe but just not very tasty.
Chips are made in a dedicated fryer! The staff was extremely knowledgeable and could tell me which drinks I should stay away from. Their food is made out of fresh ingredients and they offer most of the menu as gluten free. It’s also delicious!
Awesome. i left feeling ill because of how much I ate. . It was all too good! The mild guacamole, made at the table, was perfect. . Our son had GF taquitos. . He loved the guacamole, rice, and beans. We went back to DC this year and had enchiladas and what the manager referred to as Mexican lasagna (chicken, corn tortillas, and cheese layers). Stuffed ourselves again. Only complaint is that there isn't one in our home town.
I had a really great experience here. There's a dedicated GF menu with lots of options. I ordered the suizas enchiladas with a glass of sangria and it was delicious. My husband (who can eat all the gluten!) wasn't impressed with his chicken nachos that were a little burnt but he really liked what I ordered. It was a little pricier than what we planned to spend on vacation for lunch but it was definitely worth it for the peace of mind and tasty Mexican food.
Excellent food, extensive GF menu. Enchiladas and fish tacos were excellent, and so was the tableside-prepared guacamole. Very good margaritas and palomas. Absolutely no adverse reaction for my Celiac wife and daughter. Great experience!
Food was fantastic! Chips were gluten free! I asked a few times and they reassured me they are fried in a separate fryer. I had the fish tacos and they were phenomenal. They have a separate gluten free menu that has many choices on it. If you're in the DC area and looking for a great lunch or dinner, this is a must eat at place! Enjoy!
I was here about a month ago and I got really sick for 4 days because of this place. However I don't think I asked for a gluten free menu since we went for happy hour, and I thought the corn chips and guacamole would be fine. I am dairy free too so my choices are even more limited. It's because of how sick I got here that I am now very picky where I eat. Maybe down the road I will give this place another chance but not any time soon.
We had an amazing experience. We ate gluten free without fear. Our waiter, Rodger, took the time to speak to the chef and ensure all foods that we ordered were gluten free down to the chips, salsa & guac. Highly recommend for those with Celiac & gluten sensitive issues. Thank you!!!!
Great food, great service! Extensive GF menu, and was marked with stickers to make sure the servers identified it as a special menu. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and talked all about what they do to avoid cross-contamination. The tableside guacamole is a MUST!
Great menu items! Double check when your order arrives that it was prepared gluten free. On more than one occasion I've had to sen food back because accommodations weren't made or were forgotten eg fried onions on a taco even though I ordered from the GF menu. They are great at taking food back to double check though!
Went there because of all the positive recommendations. First waiter gave us corn crisp tortilla chips and dip- I asked for gluten-free and he said yes. Then another waitress came and told me it’s not gluten free if I have Celiac because there is cross contamination because they take the same fryer. Then we wanted to order Guacamole and had a bis discussion with what I should eat is (because we now made clear tortilla chips are not gluten free). So we ordered vegetables- they were disgusting and not really fresh. As main course I ordered tacos with pollo and asked for really being careful because of celiac. Half an hour later i felt very sick and with lots of typical problems... would not go there again. In New York and Miami at Rosa we always ate good and safe- not here...
Wonderful, safe food! Items clearly marked on the menu as GF and the waiter explained to me how the chips are fried with just canola oil in a separate fryer. I had the portabella tacos and a margarita and it was absolutely delicious and inexpensive for NYC! Absolutely would return.
Excellent food and service. The chips and salsa are gf,band there are several gf options on the menu, including brunch. My husband had the mole enchiladas which sadly were not gf. He said it was the best mole he's had in the US.
Menu was clearly labeled “GF”, and the server knew exactly what we needed and confirmed both on the order ticket and then personally that the kitchen understood the celiac/allergy focus for our food. Everything was tasty. Also witnessed interaction of the manager (I think) explain apologetically for a customer’s food being delivered late to the table; explained there was a mistake in the kitchen and would not charge the customer for the food because of the delay—incredible service!
This is definitely one to remember if I ever go back to Boston. The chips and salsa given to the table are gluten free, as well as a number of entrees. I got the enchiladas Suizas which although a little spicy, I really liked and I devoured. Also recommend the hibiscus iced tea which I really liked
Lots of GF options, clearly marked on menu. Staff knowledgeable; assured me that the tortilla chips are fried in a fryer dedicated only for tortilla chips. Both GF and non-GF people in my group were happy with their food! The pork with grilled pineapple was really good!
I’m gluten and Dairy Free. After looking for dairy free on this app, this restaurant came up. The menu is clearly marked for gluten free, but not for dairy. And although they list the ingredients, they don’t always list dairy. I asked for no cheese on the main meal but didn’t know the zucchini noodles and beans and rice would have cheese on them. When our meal came everything had cheese on it and they told us they could not make that meal without the cheese. So I asked for the menu again and the waiter shook his head walking away. We re-ordered making sure there was no cheese. There were only about 3 options. I will give them points because the manager personally came to our table, explained what happened, and made sure our food was good to go and had the kitchen rush it out. It was very good in the end. Just some miscommunication.
This place is awesome! They clearly mark the menu with GF for ease of ordering. The chips are in a dedicated fryer and the guacamole is delicious. We went twice on our trip. The waiters were so kind!Me and my mom were so excited to eat there. They had Gluten free Tacos.I loved this place.
As someone w Celiac Disease, eating out requires homework, and a great server who understands dietary restrictions, and will communicate w the chef. Mine was perfect. All food was served properly, and he assure me that all were gluten free. Rosa Mexicano delivered true gluten free (no criss contamination) entrees that made me feel like a normal diner.
Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Safe for Celiacs alike. Chips have a dedicated frier. The guacamole is on point and the carnitas were excellent! Perfectly slow cooked, yet crispy on the ends. The corn tortillas were super fresh. No issues here!
GF options are marked on the menu clearly. Had the mushroom tacos because it was basically the only veg and GF option available (delicious). Guacamole was $15 which I found absurd. Chips and salsa were also GF, I was told by the server that they have a dedicated fryer for the chips.
Even if the service was so so, everything we had as marked as gluten free (many options on the menu) tested GF on Nima, was very very good and I didn’t have symptoms. Will definitely go again! We had guacamole with chips, the chicken nachos and the skirt steak.
