On Safety

We have been here a few times, some with my son who has celiac disease. He absolutely loves it here! So much of the ingredients in Mexican foods are gluten-free naturally, but here they make sure to keep a dedicate fryer so that all of the tortilla chips are safe! (I hope that my son will get to a point where he's happy to eat a salad with chicken but he's still young and wants chips & salsa when he has Mexican food.) Menu items are marked, my son has not been glutened and I would recommend this to others with celiac disease or any health reasons for avoiding gluten.

Since their options are naturally GF, they all taste the same! It's nice when items don't need to be modified so that your dish isn't smaller or different.

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.

Food was excellent! Our waiter was very helpful & guided me to great gluten free options. GF meals clearly stated on their regular menu. Had the queso fundido & pollo adobo tacos al carbon, which I HIGHLY recommend. Saw many tables around us order the table-side guacamole & it looked delicious!

Gluten free options were clearly marked on the menu. Corn tortillas were delicious. Chips are also gluten free. I had the brunch and the breakfast tacos with potatoes were good. Portions were reasonable. Although I'm from Texas so I expected a little bit of a bigger size plate, but I realize this is NJ not TX.

Large GF menu, hard not to find something. Housemade corn tortillas and GF chips for complementary salsa. Fresh guacamole made to order. Solid choice for modern chain.

One if my favorite go-to places when I'm shopping. I have never had an issue. They do have a separate gluten free menu. The enchiladas are great, I would also recommend trying the elotes! Empanadas and flautas are good too. Anything fried has a separate fryer. Corn chips are made in house and safe to eat.

Excellent food! Tortillas are safe and they make guac right in front of you so you know exactly what's going into it. I've eaten here a few times already with no issues at all.

Nice options with many items naturally gluten free. I wish the wait staff was a little more confident in their answers when we asked questions, but in the end our very sensitive celiac son had no ill effects after eating there.

Excellent gluten free menu! I don't feel like I have to miss out on anything when I dine here. Love the atmosphere, food, drinks ... Just don't go on a weekend night, unless you have time to wait for a table.... can get very busy, but for good reason! Will be back soon and often.

The waitress was very knowledgeable about what was gluten free and what happens in the kitchen. My wife is hypersensitive to cross contamination. We had the chips and salsa. The waitress explained the chips are fried in a different fryer. It was the best Mexican restaurant I have ever eaten at. Definitely will be revisiting.

Safe for celiacs. There are many gluten free dishes which are not listed as such on the online menu. The chips and salsa are safe too. You need to make a reservation if you’re going before curtain time

Based on previous reviews I was looking forward to eating here because I’m from out of town. However, I brought my Nima Sensor just in case. The sensor saved my butt cause my test result was GLUTEN FOUND. I spoke to the manager showing him my result and when speaking to the chef he realized that they heat gf tortillas on the same burner as flour 😱 very glad I tested the food prior to eating even with the glowing reviews. I’ve had diagnosed celiac disease for 6 months now so this would have been awful had I just eaten the meal. The manager gave me the meal for free and made sure the replacement meal was made safely. Waiting to see if I have a reaction later. If I do I will definitely post on here.

Me and my fiance who is celiac went to eat dinner there today. The guac was meh and I got a margarita that was way to strong. The waiter was nice in working with our gluten allergy and tried hair best. The carnitas were super tasty and a must try! Overall it's okay since it was close by our hotel but way over priced.

They accidentally gave me a flour tortilla quesadilla instead of corn. Luckily, I noticed before eating and they made me a gluten-free one. While this was a stressful experience and made me lose some confidence, I did not get sick from the chips/guacamole or the quesadilla after. Just be care and triple-check with them if you need to! I asked twice when I ordered if the quesadilla would be made gluten-free.

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...

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.

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

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.

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.
