    Many of the empanadas are markedGF, presumably because they’re made with corn, but they’re fried in the same fryer as ones made of wheat, so they’re not really GF. The arepas are baked, so they are not cross contaminated. Everything was delicious and the prices are a bargain, especially compared to the exorbitant ones at the amusement parks. Five stars for the food, minus one for the mislabeled empanadas.

    Was hopeful because of the other positive reviews. Didn’t eat here after speaking with staff. Everything fried in same fryer, and most of menu is fried items. Staff unsure about Celiac or Gluten Free even though the menu labels many items as GF. Disappointed to say the least

    Everything is clearly labeled GF. The food was amazing and there’s several drink choices. Everything is reasonably priced.

    Clearly labeled GF items & a staff that understands gluten. Place is so good we hate here twice on a recent trip 😋

    My favorite non-Disney restaurant to visit when we are in Orlando! An absolute MUST if you're GF!

    Lots of gluten free options available and food is absolutely delicious- unlike all the processed food you find in chain restaurants. I could even have the sweet plantains that aren’t available in so many places! The slow cooked pork was amazing!

    Asked the staff at the register and they use a shared fryer so no fried foods are celiac safe, that being said there are a TON of other absolutely delicious options. I had the 30+ hour roasted pork, yellow rice, and roasted potatoes. The portion was huge for only $9! I will definitely be returning in the future Edit I ate here again this week. They accidently brought me fried plantains and I told the staff I was "allergic"due to the shared fryer and they apologized and told me it would be about 5-10 min so they can remake my plate. That made me feel really good that they didn't just take it to the back, remove the plantains and then give the plate back.

    Everything about this place is amazing. Very low prices for good portion sizes. So many GF options right on the menu. All the flavors were authentic. Wish I were here longer so I could visit a dozen more times. Other notes: counter service, bar available, safe neighborhood, easy to find near I-4.

    Back for a second time on our trip. This place has amazing food for great prices. The worst thing about it is that it isn’t in my home town of Chattanooga. I have Celiac Disease and they have a huge selection. I think about half their menus is gluten free. If you are in Orlando for the amusement parks, this place is well worth a trip. We have tried lunch and dinner here and paid under $35 for a meal for two both times, including tip. It is a welcome spot of authenticity among the tourist traps. Thanks Sofrito for some amazing meals!

    Very clearly marked items with many different options. Worth the short walk from Disney Springs, both for the quality and much better value. Staff is very friendly/helpful as well.
