I had dinner here tonight and told them I have Celiac. The server was great and knowledgeable but I definitely got sick here. I wouldn’t recommend.

I am gf and don’t eat mammals. There was very little I could eat because the chicken enchiladas are made with stewed chicken and mole that aren’t GF. They refuse to make any modifications.

It’s small, noisy, and always packed. But the food is amazing. In all honesty, I’ve only tried one appetizer and one main dish because I’m addicted. But looking at my neighbors dishes I’m assuming it’s all good. I have celiacs and the waiters are always knowledgeable and I have never felt sick after eating here.

Delicious food staff seemed knowledgeable but I got very sick shortly after. Would not go back which is a shame because it tasted good. If looking to just avoid gluten then you might be okay if you have celiacs I would not go here.

Don't be put off by the host who knows too little about the menu. Our server even knew about the soy sauce marinade in the chicken tacos and checked for other possible hidden glutens before we finalized our orders. The food is very tasty, even if you're also dairy free. Note: No weekday lunches.

We have always loved Mission Cantina, and appreciate it even more after my daughter's celiac diagnosis. They are very careful about cross-contamination (they cook your food in a separate pan rather than on the grill) and will let you know if the food coming out of the fryer is or isn't safe. We've never had a problem here.
