Had a great lunch there. The chips they gave with salsa came in their own dedicated frier so they are safe gf. They have color coded plates (green square plate for those with celiac) to prevent cross contamination. Plenty of gluten free options to choose from. I had the chicken tacos with Spanish rice on corn tortillas which were delicious. They do offer a cauliflower cassava tortilla for a quesadilla as well that you can request.

I called ahead to make sure they could accommodate a celiac with dairy and soy allergies. They assured me they could, but AFTER serving our chips and salsa, the waiter came back and told us that soy oil is used to fry the chips. The waiter was very kind and overall the service was good. No bad allergic reactions. However, the food and margaritas were mediocre at best.

Chips and salsa came out right after sitting down and I asked the waiter if they are fried, as I always do with Mexican restaurants. He immediately said yes, but in their own dedicated fryer as if he had known my question and was asked many times. Loved this! Servers who just get it. I ate probably too many chips and salsa and had the chicken enchiladas with corn esquites. All of it was so delicious and even better was that none of it made me sick. The one downside was that we came at the end of brunch and none of their brunch food options were gluten free, but there’s still plenty of options on the regular menu!

This is a favourite when visiting the city! The food is always amazing and the majority of the menu is gluten free. They take coeliac disease and other allergies very seriously, which makes me feel so confident eating here. I would recommend the Enchiladas Suizas, they’re the best!

My daughter is Celiac and sensitive. We first called the restaurant and they were very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Their website is very clearly labeled for GF items and there are quite a few options. We ordered and personally picked up the Budín de Pollo, Carnitas, and the GF fish dish. The food was superb and my daughter ate everything with no issues.

First of all the food is delicious. They are really prepared for people with gluten allergies/sensitivity. They also have a wide range of food for people who are gluten free.

Amazing all around. Love trying new restaurants in the area but have never been to Rosa Mexicana until now. I am celiac so I have had my fair share of Mexican food, and this place stands out. Food- incredible. The elote, Birria tacos, Aad the Queso Fundido… ALL FIVE STAR items! The menu never mentioned anything about a shared fryer but the chips were safe for me! We will definitely be coming back in the very near future… not sure if we’ll try new items or just endulge in those because they were the best we’ve had in a while! Cheers to finding a new favorite spot in town!

Also easily swapped flour tortillas for corn. And plenty of already GF options that were clearly labeled and readily available!

Gluten free is marked on the menu. I am allergic to wheat, not celiac, so can’t vouch for cross-contamination , sorry. However, I had a very delicious gluten free and dairy free meal and an excellent margarita. Definitely recommend!
