I ordered a carnitas burrito with a gluten free tortilla and it was delicious! I wasn't glutened and felt ok after eating it. It was a bit spicy but still good.

The food here is great. The menu clearly states what is gluten free and what is not. I usually get spinach enchiladas and black beans. Super yummy.

Update:

Not sure if management changed but I don’t feel as confident in this restaurant any more. Every time I go I get a different story about whether the food will be safe or not. Last time I went they gave me a side order of flour tortillas when I didn’t even order any tortillas. They just kind of told me oops when I let them know.

The food is delicious! Very knowledgeable about gluten cross-contamination. They created a special meal for me, because I am also allergic to many other foods. They do not have a gluten free fryer, but I didn’t miss tortilla chips (like I usually do).

All menu items that are gluten-free are marked on the menu. I have the langostino lobster enchiladas and they were amazing! Unfortunately the Spanish rice and chips are not gluten free (this is clearly marked) but with food this good, I am glad I couldn’t fill up on chips. I am Celiac and had no reaction. Would highly recommend to all Celiacs!

UGH...I'm so sad writing this. So they have GF options, but do not be fooled. Their chips ARE NOT gf. I asked the manager and he just said yes to all of my questions. Long story short I was sick for 2 days. Not fun
