*** Please write honest reviews so others have up to date information on choices*** Great food, gf blue tortilla chips, good options but I always get the cream cheese burrito with queso added. No rice option. They brought me a flour tortilla once but caught the cooks mistake before they sat it down. overall great.
We recently ate at Salty Iguana for the first time since going GF. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the different options. The chips are NOT cross contaminated. As a matter of fact, our waitress brought out the individual package that the chips came out of. They go from the package to the basket to the table. Not as fresh as their other chips but my daughter didn't complain.
One of my go-to place for eating out, and one of the only restaurants I feel relatively safe eating. They have yummy GF chips that you can request - the regular tortilla chips are NOT safe. Make sure you mention "allergy," I have mentioned Celiac and the wait staff aren't all educated as to what that means. I have had excellent luck with the Street Tacos with corn tortillas, I've never been glutened by them. The fajitas with corn tortillas are also a good bet. Other items are a bit more risky. I have been glutened by the iguana cheese dip and enchiladas, even after substitutions to make it safe.
This place is my favorite Mexican place!! They heat up these delicious gluten free chips for you and almost everything can be modified to be gluten free. Although their gluten free menu doesn’t say this, their rice is now gluten free. You can even get burritos and quesadillas with corn tortillas. I definitely recommend the traditional carnitas—phenomenal!! The staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating, would definitely recommend this place.
I was really excited to try this place because I had never been. They have gf options but the food was awful. I got 3 tacos (can’t really go wrong with tacos) and they were the WORST tacos I have ever had. Beef was disgusting and shells were chewy. Will not be going back.
This was a favorite of our family but after getting sick twice I won't be going back. I always take my own chips because I'm allergic to ingredients in their GF chips. They rarely write down allergies when taking our order. The wait staff that helped us several times acted as though my alerting them to my allergies was just passing on random information. I called and the manager reassured me that the black beans and rice were safe. They clearly as I'm had problems several times and got sick twice. I've heard of other people having issues at Salty.
They have a gf menu. Food is good, and service is too. Although I did have a lot of questions one time about certain items and the waitress seemed to be irritated because she didn't know the answers and had to keep going and asking someone else.
Yes, they have gf options but food here was just nasty. Enchilada tasted freezer burned and taco was dry and tasteless. They don't have a dedicated frier, so your chips are these organic whole grain crackers. Service was great (good waitress) but I won't be back for the food.
Let your server know you have Celiac and they will let you know what is and isn't safe and will work with you to make sure that what you order will come with the right substitutions! (Like corn tortilla instead of white flour) LOVE THEIR IGGY DIP! Delicious margs too!
They have some items I can always rely on safely eating and not worry about getting sick afterwards--something I've had much difficulty with regarding Mexican food, which I really love but can rarely eat at restaurants
I ordered take out and struggled with the guy on the phone on whether they had a gf menu (I heard they did, I couldn't find it on the website). I ordered what he said were gf offerings and got sick that night. Maybe I would have had better luck going in, but thinking I am staying away.
