    I’ve eaten here several times in the past few months and have gotten so sick each time. I went back thinking maybe it was something else, giving them another chance, but now know it was most definitely the food.

    As a person who loves Mexican food, I can confidently say that Rosa Mexicano is one of the BEST Mexican restaurants I’ve ever been too! Their table side guacamole was incredible and the menu is labeled with what is gluten free and the staff is very knowledgeable. HIGHLY recommend visiting.

    Flavorful and safe!! The employees didn't bat an eye at gluten free and even assured us that certain tortillas and chips were made from corn, not gluten. This is delicious AUTHENTIC Mexican food! You have to try their guacamole salsa- it goes from a whole avocado and toppings to an amazing salsa right before your eyes! Even the shy ones with the green salsa in our party were addicted. It was so good that I hope to make a similar recipe at home! Rosa Mexicano is a celiac safe feast!

    Although I'm confident it's not gluten making me sick here- it's all the fatty sauces, I just can't understand why anyone likes this place. I live so close, it would be the easiest place to meet people and enjoy dinner. But no matter what GF dish I order, I can't eat but a few bites before the fat is separating on the dish and I'm grossed out. So in a pinch I would go here because it's celiac safe but the food is sooo overpriced even as a New Yorker who loves her food and is willing to pay for it.

    Be careful! The GF menu has items with the same exact names as the non-GF menu. I ordered from the GF menu, but they brought me something battered and fried; they agreed it was full of gluten, and the GF version was supposed to be roasted, not fried. We're not sure at what point the mistake was made, so take extra precaution when ordering. I also advised them to name the GF version "roasted..." and the regular "fried..." on the respective menus to avoid confusion, but a glance at the menu recently showed they didn't take my suggestion.

    I ordered the chips and table guacamole because they said they were fried in a separate fryer. I also had a patron silver margarita and the cheese enchiladas with rice and beans. By the time the check came I was in pain. So, not sure what did it. Maybe just CC. But, it's really a shame.

    My favorite gluten free place. It's always books so go in advance. I'm a super sensitive celiac and I've never gotten sick from them. Mexican food is naturally gluten friendly. Not sure what other reviewer is talking about with pasta water Bc rosa doesn't serve pasta. I'd highly recommend

    They have a large gluten free menu but according to our waiter, they take no precautions in the kitchen to avoid cross-contamination. No cleaning of the prep area, GF pasta cooked in water used to cook conventional pasta, etc. It may be a gluten-free menu in terms of ingredients, but that's only a partial consideration for celiacs. Great for marketing, unacceptable for celiac patients.

    Not an entirely gf place but still safe! I’m giving this 4/5 stars only because when I asked about gf, the waiter told me only 2 items were not gf, which was not true. I asked to speak to the chef and he seemed annoyed with me. The chef was nice and assured me he would take care of me, which he did!! I had a shrimp and rice dish which was very tasty. The chips and salsa were delicious. I wanted to try the guacamole which they make table side, but there were only two of us and the portion was HUGE! I was nervous about getting glutened but I was totally fine. I’d just recommend placing your order with the chef so they follow gf protocol for cross contamination

The portions are generous, atmosphere is good. It’s on the corner of a busier road, so keep in mind if you want to dine outside. We did and it was fine. Highly recommended by two with celiac.

REALLY interesting presentation of the nachos as well - 3 layers of whole corn tortillas cooked as a stack with cheese and then broken up like a cake table side.

    Staff was knowledgeable of cross contamination and I was happy to see corn tortillas. GF items are clearly marked on the menu which is about half of their selection. The price is a little high if you’re going just for lunch but the portions are quite large for the main course items. So far I’ve had the Carnitas and the Alambre de Camarón and both were excellent!

    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.
