    I ordered the breakfast egg and mushroom cazuela without tortilla strips and zero issues.

    Server told me tortilla strips were GF (they’re not). I ordered without anyway and they included them on my salad. Only found out non the plane.

    They have GF options but it is impossible to avoid cross contamination. They cut the avocados with the same knife as the sandwiches

    Server seemed very knowledgeable about their food and how it is prepared. Frying oil is shared with breaded chicken. All but one or two sandwiches available in a bowl with black beans and arugula.

    Server took great care of me and produced a list when I asked about gf options. If you happen to be there while they’re serving breakfast (before 11 am), the cazuelas are plenty filling because they have sweet potato (and eggs, veg, and meat if you want) - just be sure to do no tortilla strips like it says on the GF list. A great airport option!

    It was very busy at breakfastn time. I started the conversatin with the cashier that if it were too busy to pay close attnetion, I could forego ordering. she assured me they would take it very seriously. we spoke at length and she went over every ingredient in the egg and bean bowl with me. when preparing, the staff changed gloves and retrieved a fresh, clean prep plate. She cleaned the area of crumbs and did a glove change even though I had seen her do a glove change right before for the previous plate. we spoke as she prepped ingredients and assured me that nothing in this area beside the bread (which only touches the board not every plate) had gluten. The cooking pan was not changed, but we risked the contamination given delayed flights and assurances that no ingredients did possessed gluten. writing this 30 hours after and no side effects. Happy to report for future flyers. Staff was awesome even with heavy morning traffic!!!

    Food was great as well as Marilyn who took the order and the guys doing the cooking. Menu on the wall doesn't show gf options but when u ask they show you the options from another menu at the counter. The Torta chopolte chicken was great and they said they also had gf soup. Not many options in airport but this place saves the day.

    Person at the order section seemed knowledgeable. I had the Chipotle chicken torta and it was truly yummy even though there was not much to it without the bread. 4 stars only because the cross contamination opportunities seemed plentiful based on what I saw of the setup. I asked them to change gloves which I assume they did. Will update this review only if I get sick. This place is the Terminal 3 near the lower K gates (K4 or so).

    Cross contamination galore. I got soup that doesn't rub against bread (like their beans). Will update depending on condition.
