    We had a very enjoyable meal here and we did not have any reactions to it afterwards. Tijuana Flats does not have a gluten free menu or give any gluten information, so you need to know ahead of time what you can order here. The hard tacos, chips, and corn tortillas are all fried in shared oil with the flour tortillas, so don't order anything fried here. The beans (black and refried), rice, meats, and queso are all safe. I had soft corn tacos and asked for them not to be fried. My husband had enchiladas, which are usually dipped in the oil, but he asked for them not to be dipped. All of our requests were met, and our food was delicious.

    I only get the beef tostadas with queso. I don't get sick but I do get gassy! I don't eat the chips.

    Really nice and helpful staff but surprisingly little GF for a Tex Mex place. Had soft corn tacos with blackened chicken. Not much flavor Addendum: had a medium reaction. I think the soft corn tortillas were NOT 100% corn

    I eat here all the time. I live so close and it's so convenient. Always get the queso and beef tostadas. I ask them to change their gloves and tell them I am severe gluten sensitive. Have NEVER gotten sick.

    good gluten free corn tortilla options. cross contamination could occur, they say, but only the obvious things have gluten, plus the ranch dressings.

    Terrible experience, un educated and misleading staff. I asked several times if the corn hard tacos and chips were gluten free and they checked and said yes. Both my sons have Celiac they ate the chips and when the tacos came in they said it was all fried in the same frier as other breaded items. Horrible service, will never come back

    While they have a gluten free menu, they do acknowledge cross contamination on some items. However the staff was knowledgeable and offered options to ensure no cross contamination.

    Though they had a paper taped to a register what could be gluten free it was misleading. The gluten free items would be cooked in the same oils as the gluten items. This was the one in Merritt Island, Florida.

    I eat here about once a month and haven't had any problems. My usual order is the Ultimate Beef Nachos. They use grated cheese instead of cheese sauce (though I was told at a festival they had a booth at the cheese sauce is gluten free too).

    They have a small menu of options they serve that are gluten free off of their regular menu. Corn tortillas, chips, and taco shells. They were very careful with my food and were very knowledgeable.

    Mediocre texmex. They only have salads and rice bowls that are assured gluten-free. The chips share a fryer with unsafe foods. It's cheap--kids eat free on Sundays--and that's all it has going for it.

    The person who greeted me had absolutely job idea what gluten even was. I had no confidence so my friends and I promptly made our exit and went to Mellow Mushroom nearby.

    This place is delicious! Although it may not be celiac friendly, if you are just gluten intolerant like me, then you'll be fine. They have corn tortillas and chips.

    No gluten free menu, but the waiters and owner were very knowledgable on the matter. I had chicken tacos on corn tortillas and they cleaned the grill before cooking it. The rice was gluten free as well

    The only GF options are the burrito bowls and salads. Chips are NOT safe since they fried in a shared fryer.

    I asked for a gluten free menu and was told I can have anything that is made with a corn tortilla (hard tacos, salads, enchilada, and tostadas). There was no gluten free menu specifying what is gluten free. I ordered a kickin chicken tostada and the chicken was breaded. So you need to be very cautious of what you order! Lesson learned.

    Corn shells and chips are in a shared fryer. Also they said the rice is not gf. We got the norito bowl and enchiladas. They made the enchiladas without frying them first for us. They have a menu, and the cashier checked before placing our order. The gf menu is difficult to understand, but the food is good. If we were local I would come back with my kids again.

    The staff has a list of options that don't contain gluten next to the cash register. Not very knowledgeable about the hot sauce. However, the manager just came to me and mentioned that he knows someone who comes here who's very sensitive to gluten & they don't get the red sauce on their enchalata . Make sure to ask them to not dip the corn tortillas in the frier

    Absolutely awesome!!! I would seriously say this is the best Mexican food in all of Orlando. Staff is attentive and knowledgable! I had two tacos with beans, cheese, lettuce, guacamole, and jalape├▒os with a side of queso. Felt great after eating and wanted more!

    Love the food here, and have never gotten sick. Just be smart about what you order. I get the bowl with rice, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, and cheese. Chips, salsa, guacamole, queso are all safe. There's an allergen list on the website. Very easy to order online and it's ready when you get there!

    Ordered the hard-shell corn tortilla tacos and informed the cashier that I am gluten-free so I needed the kitchen staff to use new gloves when making my meal... the manager came out to inform me that I would need to have their soft shell tacos, because they deep fry them in the same oil as everything else to make them hard-shell.... Changed my order to the soft shell corn tortilla tacos and no problems after!!!!
