I was glutened here almost immediately after I started eating even though I told the staff I had celiac. They also messed up our orders multiple times throughout the night, so I honestly shouldn’t have been super surprised I got glutened. Had to miss a show because of it, very disappointing.

I am celiac. Good food. Menu is marked showing items that contain gluten. The one’s not marked may need to be modified for to be gf. Wait staff was knowledgeable. Chips and salsa are gf. Wait staff indicated they are made in house in a dedicated fryer. My dinner selection needed to be modified by leaving off a dumpling. The kitchen made a mistake and put the dumpling on. I questioned this before touching my food. Staff was apologetic and remade my item. They also brought us complimentary drinks as an apology. My food was delicious and I did not get sick.

food was excellent. I was raised in Texas, I have been to some of the finest resturants in Puerta Vallarta, Cabo, and Mazatlan. This food is authentic, fine mexican food in a beautiful atmospre in the middle of midtown It's a hidden gem. Almost all the menu is gluten free. They mark what DOES have gluten instead of what is gluten free. Mostly the quesadillas and enchilladas that use flour tortillas but little else.

Someone rlse said its expensive for what you get, but that's if you arent taking everything I said into account. It's not cheap, and niether is the food quality. I 100% recommend the experience. The cocktals are anazing and the sides are sharable for at least two, maybe more depending on portion size. I could not finish two sides

Ill also say this, this is not what you want if you want a quick delishish bite and not a beautiful sit down experience. If you want just tacos close to the quality without possibly any place to sit, and maybe just an aqua fressca or soda you can try Los Tacos #1 . I love food at both places. Just depends on what you want. I will be going to both.

Our waiter was very nice and seemed to be knowledgeable, but both my mom and I (both celiacs) got sick after eating. We had chips and guacamole, carne asada tacos and the chicken tacos, all of which were said to be gluten free. Just a fair warning to be extra cautious if you decide to give it a try!

Separate fryer for chips, had some guac, got the carne asada dinner, was told the entire dish was safe. Turned out fine!

I didn’t dig too far into the menu, but was told much of it was GF. Overall great experience with a margarita as well (basic ingredients and not a mix).

Def a busy place so make a resy.

Small portions but great taste! Our table ordered the steak, chicken, fish (not GF), and lobster tacos. At about $20 per dish we wished there were more than just 2 smaller tacos and no sides. No kid menu either.

Delicious tacos! We came here after another restaurant was very clear that they could not guarantee safe gluten free food. This restaurant had a dedicated gluten free fryer and made note of an allergy. Most of their menu is gf and only the items that aren’t gf are marked! A great dinner!

Such delicious Mexican food! Because it’s right next to one of the theaters, the restaurant is very quick with orders, which is great if you are in a rush. The chips and guacamole are gluten free and the wait staff knew exactly what I could eat. The menu is labeled with tiny little symbols for dairy, nuts and gluten, so it’s easy to confirm what is safe.

Staff seemed to know what was happening and I enjoyed my food. I did feel a little uneasy as some items listed as gluten free such as the salsa in the tacos has been said to not be. I just got the Carne Asada with corn tortiallad and didnt touch the rice because of fear the seasoning had gluten.

Several GF options on the menu. Interestingly, the rice they serve is not GF due to the flavoring they add. I was told by the Mgr that the chips were cooked in separate frier (this is contrary to what others report, so beware). I had the Asada tacos and did not get sick. I'm very sensitive to cross-contamination.

I didn't get sick eating at the location on UES 80s but I did contact the restaurant by EMAIL after reading a few negative reviews. They revealed that the chips are not in a dedicated fryer therefore "not really gluten free" and the salsa is made with peppers canned with soy sauce. Sucks not having a reliable Mexican spot in my neighborhood. Not worth risking.

The staff has awareness of food allergies. GF menu was available. My daughter has celiac and also has a dairy allergy. She had the carne asada. The waiter told us that the rice has some butter. We had no issues. Though they are careful about cross-contact (aka cross-contamination), the guacamole appears to be prepared on the same area as the wood oven where the flour tortillas are baked. )

The food was delicious but the service was disappointing from a GF perspective. We initially asked what items were GF and were told they were denoted on the menu. When ordering the waitress scolded me for not reiterating that it needs to be GF which was fine since I should have. Later we ordered guacamole and it was also listed on the menu as gluten free. It came with salsa which the waitress confirmed was GF even though this app said it wasn't. After eating the guacamole the waitress came back and said not only was the salsa not gluten free but it was also in the guacamole we had ordered and had been eating. Very unprofessional to confirm two items were GF when they were not without as much as an apology.
