I cannot say enough good things about this place! The fact that the entire menu is gluten free is phenomenal! Their homemade tortillas are so fantastic. The burritos, quesadillas, tacos, gorditos are all amazing. Then you have desert with tres leches or churros. Overall a wonderful experience every single time we come!

So good!!! We got to go, and my friend who can eat gluten and has worked in a Mexican restaurant said it was delicious!!! Definitely worth it as a gluten free person! I usually do not eat dairy, but I decided it was worth the consequences to be able to have everything on the burrito, I’ll see if my mind changes lol 😅

What a gem! We stopped here on our way back from vacation. Everything is gluten free and they can easily accommodate dairy sensitivities as well. I ordered what they called gorditas - fried corn pitas of a sort. Our kids happily munched on the taco platter followed by churros (sadly not dairy free but I was stuffed). Don’t miss the selection of tequilas and margaritas. Ambience is complete with Mexican decorations and popular music in Spanish.

Hooray for dedicated gf restaurants! Our daughter (Celiac) is attending the VCU orientation and is not comfortable with their gf offerings, so we brought her some tacos from Tia Pablo. Then we came back to have dinner (hubby also diagnosed with Celiac). The food was tasty and the servers were friendly. Hubby didn't live his Margherita, but otherwise all was really tasty!

Ate lunch at Tio Pablo today and it was SO good. I had the gorditas with carne asada and al pastor filling, with sides of frijoles churros (pinto beans with bacon) and nopales (cactus with chopped tomatoes and jalapeños). My family also got chicken enchiladas and a burrito. For dessert we tried the tres leches cake, flan, and Oreo cheesecake.

This establishment is a gluten free kitchen and all the food is made in house! I had the Carna Asada and Carnitas Tostadas. They were both great with good portions. I had a vegetable burrito which had grilled or sautéed vegetables. No anxiety about cross contamination. Definitely worth the drive if you are in the area!!!

Edited: Been here 5-6x since my first review and have enjoyed every meal. I’ve ordered from each food category and haven’t had a bad reaction. By far my favorite restaurant in the city!

We want to give extra stars! We are stuck at a hotel by the airport so I was thrilled that they can deliver. We ordered an assortment of tacos and they were delicious! And I’m glad that I don’t have to wait twenty minutes to check if anyone starts feeling glutened. What a relief before we get on a flight!

This is the first 100% gluten free Mexican place I have found and the food is amazing! I had my first ever gluten free burrito! I have Celiac Disease so sometimes Mexican restaurants aren't always safe if they have corn and flour tortillas in the kitchen. I felt so safe eating at this place and didn't have to worry about any cross contamination.

I am giving 5 stars strictly based off the gluten free experience. It is always such an exciting joy that I truly appreciate when a restaurant is fully gluten free! For my sensitive celiac self, being able to order absolutely anything off the menu is the best! Unfortunately the quality of food for us was not as great. We ordered take out so maybe the dining in experience is better. Our tacos/quesadilla were so soggy and cold I only ate the filling out of mine, the Oreo cheesecake was tasteless with a mush Oreo on top we didn’t finish it and our chips and pico de gallo were missing. The chipotle chicken was tasty and I thank them for a safe meal to eat, I just had higher quality expecatations.

This place is amazing, I visited with 7 non-gf people and everyone loved the food and the drinks! The service was great, the waitress let me read the back of the flour they use in the cake to make sure I was able to eat it due to other allergies. I am very sensitive to cc, but since this is a completely gf restaurant I felt 100% after eating. I would recommend this place to anyone, whether you avoid gluten or not.

This is a small place, but it did not disappoint. My daughter and husband were so happy they could choose anything off the menu, 100% gluten free everything! We had delicious tacos, pupusas, chips and dips, fried yuca, Mexican street corn, and even Oreo cheesecake! The margaritas were great! They took care of our large group with a reservation.

Delicious, celiac-safe food. What else is there to say? Only a short distance from I-95, so it was easy to pass through and grab food later. Pro tip: they offer cocktails (also gluten free), which really made my day when I got to my hotel and was able to enjoy a safe meal and cocktail!

Ahhh couldn’t say better things about this place. I’m Mexican grew up near the best tacos and now live in Chicago. I haven’t had tacos this good in Chicago and every bite felt safe (celiac wise) and full of flavor. I had their tostadas- poblano chicken and carnitas. Mmm mmm so tasty! My partner and I thought “mmm do we need to move here now?” I felt great after and satisfied.
