I had the Vegan Enchiladas and charros beans. They were delicious. They had a gluten free menu available. Tacos and salads were available as well.

You have to be very clear on changing gloves and requesting GF chips. Even then it’s sometimes a risk. Gf tacos are usually a safe bet, but a few times we’ve received flour tacos by accident (instead of corn)

Quality is good by prices for salsa and Queso are brutal. Other meals are pretty fair. I’ve been given flour tortillas a few times so watch out

I've eaten here a dozen times since 2015 and every year the service and GF ability gets worse. Stressed that I had Celiac and that they would need to change gloves, and still have problems. Disappointing to hear others got sick as well. Being served flour tacos (last two visits) or gf chips that were cross contaminated lowers my confidence. Has gotten worse over the years...

We ate here a lot before my celiac diagnosis, and I was happy to learn they have a separate gluten free menu so we can keep eating at Taco Mamacita. Their mango salsa is so good, and it turns out the gluten free chips taste even better than the regular ones! The gluten free taco menu is pretty big, with lots of options. I loved the black bean taco and the vegetarian jerk taco before I got my diagnosis. The black bean taco on a corn tortilla is gluten free, but the vegetarian jerk taco is not listed on the gluten free menu due to the plantain being fried in the fryer with other gluten-containing foods. I expressed my sadness about not being able to eat my face taco anymore to my server and she let me know that they can actually just sauté a plantain in a separate pan and make the taco for me, completely gluten free! It’s just as good as I remembered it. The charros beans are a very good gluten free side item (though I do miss the sweet potato fries!). We eat here often and I have not had any “glutened” reactions, even though I am sensitive and do often have reactions after eating at other restaurants. The staff understands celiac disease, takes it seriously, asks the kitchen staff to change gloves, etc. Taco Mamacita even has a special red foil that they wrap the gluten free tacos in to distinguish them from the regular tacos, and the spike through the taco says “Allergy” on it, which gives me peace of mind that the kitchen did everything right.

They only have a gluten friendly menu and per the manager cross contamination will probably happen. I didn’t eat here.

The staff was super patient as I asked all my questions. I had the tortilla soup without queso and without tortilla strips. I tested with my Nima and no gluten.

Separate gluten sensitive and vegan menu, knowledgeable staff, and some of the best enchiladas suiza I’ve ever had. My husband had the Peruvian chicken (naturally GF) and it was excellent. Definitely recommend.

Ordered carnitas tacos and the beans from their gluten sensitive menu. I specified I was gluten free. Walking back across the bridge to the aquarium, I could feel something was not right. It was definitely a reaction to contaminated food. Don't recommend to celiac or really sensitive people.

We came to Chattanooga for my birthday and having both dairy and gluten allergies that are pretty severe made me nervous. We were lucky enough to get Jesse as a server and he went above and beyond. Not only did he do this with his service, but also his patience. He made sure that I could have the meat addition I preferred for my enchiladas (and checked the ingredients for enchiladas!) and he even suggested sights to see in the area! So glad we chose this place!

I read other reviews that say it’s celiac friendly. They are knowledgeable but the corn tortillas share the same surface as the flour tortillas and I was told they couldn’t be sure about cross contamination. I had the guacamole and gluten free chips along with elote off the cob. I was told the elote on the cob couldn’t be guaranteed gluten free. If you’re sensitive to cross contamination, be careful. I’m very sensitive. Regardless, they were very helpful and kind.

I’ve eaten here dozens of times and never gotten sick. I also appreciate that they offer gluten free chips (they are just store bought but it’s so much easier than bringing my own from home)!

Love this place so much!!! But make sure you double check that the chips they bring to your table are actually the gluten free chips. 4/5 times after ordering GF chips and salsa, they bring regular chips the first time. ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK.

Delicious food. The Nacho chips are fried in the same fryer as other items so would be cross contaminated but there are many other options that don’t have this issue. The tacos are great and the enchiladas are also delicious.
