    As a celiac, based on the reviews we intended to avoid the arepas just in case. However, we asked exactly which masa brands they used and were told a mix of P.A.N. and Bob's Red Mill, both of which we knew to be safe. We had the Teote plate with smoky pollo and it was unique and delicious and I did not get glutened. This is a casual place. Would absolutely go there again.

    Great spot with fun atmosphere. We ordered the La Cena which was a huge platter with buttered arepas, choice of meats, rice/beans, cabbage slaw and salad. Absolutely delicious! Great value for high quality food. No gluten aside from beer in the place.

    I am going to start off by saying I didn't get glutened! they are definitely celiac friendly. but I have a sensitive stomach and I think the oil from the meat threw me off.. also didn't expect the meat to be so fatty. Not sure if I will go back.

    Great food, fast friendly service. The whole restaurant is 100% gluten free. I haven't tried the arepas yet because masa corn flour is typically contaminated with gluten. The restaurant explains this on their site and says proceed with caution. Super impressive because most people don't know that. I had the ama bowl with smoky pollo. It was delicious and I felt great after. I have celiac and I will definitely be back.

    Was so good I have eaten here twice and will be going back for more before I leave the area. Ordered take out. Also, they are dedicated and definitely celiac safe as I am extremely sensitive and had no reaction either time.

    I have Celiac and no reaction. Of course I told the waitor like I do at any restaurant and he told me I could eat anything on the menu. Their food is amazing and they have many gluten free ciders. Plus many dishes can be made dairy free or vegan. Will eat here again for sure.

    Horrible! This place food tastes like dog meat. I woke up sick this morning. Expensive for the food that you get. I really wanted to like this place but it was horrible. Not sure if anyone who worked there was from Venezuela, everyone I saw was white. Just a pretentious Portland restaurant banking on the gluten free fad without knowledge of what celiacs is.

    This is the BEST gluten free restaurant I have been to and I have to eat gluten free (not a lifestyle option). The food is incredibly flavorful. The arepas are a must if you are gluten free/celiac -- an absolute must. If you visit Portland and must have a gluten free diet, visit this place. You will not be disappointed. (my brother who is NOT gluten free found this place for me and he LOVES IT and will return with his wife).

    Not a dedicated gluten free facility! Says so on their menu and that cross contamination could happen. Woke up dizzy today so I'm pretty sure it's from eating here last night. Only place I ate out. Wouldn't recommend to my fellow auto immune ppl.

    Such a fantastic place. Good food and a great atmosphere. Outdoor seating a fire pit in the back. And they have Ground Breaker beer on tap.

    Yum! Such great food every time! Can't say enough about the El Diablo meat choice... so good. I'm not celiac, but I'm pretty gluten-sensitive and have trouble with cc - never been an issue for me here. Go! Get the El Diablo Teote Plate!

    Everything is gluten free! Yummy food. Be sure to go up stairs for better atmosphere. In better weather there in a garden to sit in. The corn cakes were great - can't wait to try the gluten free mole sauce.
