    Lots of chances for cross contamination here, but staff are very helpful and willing to check on anything they don't know. The alcohol-free drink variety is very nice.

    Not great and not exactly Celiac friendly. Servers bring the meats by on a skewer but sometimes there are issues with cross contamination as mentioned in another review. The meats were also very fatty but flavorful. The sides were served as a buffer which is not Celiac friendly but the server offered to plate me some from the back. The selection was fairly decent but I was bummed the pao de queijo was not gluten free. I've never seen it not gluten free at other Brazilian restaurants. The strawberry lemonade was good so my husband and I will likely make this our drink place.

    Everyone was knowledgeable about what my daughter could and couldn't eat. Lots of options available for her to eat.

    I love the friendly staff and the many selections here. You WILL get cross contaminated if you don't make sure to let the manager know that you have Celiac. It's best if you go during non-peak times, and call ahead as well as talk to the manager when you get there.

    I was a customer of the Colorado Springs Tucanos Brazilian Grill recently. I have Celiac Disease an am on a strictly gluten free diet. I notified my waitress of this and she was great. The salad bar was great and well marked with the GF items. The meat service on the skewers was however less than desirable. The servers were not knowledgeable about if the meat they were serving was gluten free or not. I tried to refer to the menu which was marked but it was a futile effort. The servers would carry two skewers of meat at a time and often had a gluten free meat along with a meat that had either been basted or marinated with a sauce containing gluten. They would use the same knife to slice both meats and thusly cross contaminating the meats. I was hoping that I would be lucky but by the time I got home I knew that I had consumed gluten and sufferer the consequences. I think this could have easily been avoided with a little education and training for the servers. Otherwise the food was great and the staff was as well. They just didn’t know.

    My kids have had no issues eating here. Waitstaff and servers are very knowledgeable about gluten.
