Got two whole chickens and the hand cut fries, cole slaw, plantains and green beans. It was all very good food and we had no reactions. We are celiac.

Staff did not seem extremely knowledge on GF but they had allergen menu taped to where you order. Everything is GF except black beans and a soup. Since majority of menu is gluten free, I feel contamination risk is low. The chicken, plantains, and rice were delicious!

Never had Peruvian food... it was DELICIOUS!! the guy who took my order at the front had a list of ingredients. Most items are GF! They were able to hold the onions and sauce on the chicken saltado since i am sensitive to onions too. Tasty!! The purple drink was nice.

The chicken here is absolutely delicious! They don’t put anything with gluten in the fryer so that means the fries and plantains are safe. The beans do contain gluten and are on the same line of food with everything else (similar to chipotle). I’m extremely sensitive and have eaten here several times successfully. Highly recommend getting a side of the green vinaigrette dressing too.

Delicious food! They have an allergy menu online that clearly lists what's GF and what's not. I am a very sensitive celiac & do not feel sick after eating here!

The food is great! Most of the items are gf like chicken, maduros, yucca fries, plain rice, and green beans. The staff is pretty knowledgeable too. My husband has celiac and very picky in where he will eat out. We had been to this location and the capitol blvd in Raleigh as well. Both times were safe and no reaction.

Absolutely delicious chicken and sides. Chicken is free from all of the top 10 allergens. Most of the sides are vegan. The only side that isn't GF is the beans (they use barley in the stock to make them). Rice, plaintains, yucca and the BEST green beans ever are all completely gluten free.

Great place to eat. I am GF and DF and there are only 2 sides I cannot have because of gluten. Very knowledgeable staff and amazing food. I highly recommend this place!!

So many choices for gluten free options! The only things that are not gluten free from the main menu options are the black beans and the soup. The chicken is delicious and is free of all major allergens. Lots of sides including fun choices like yuca and plantains for the adventurous and fries for the more conventional. Everything was fresh, hot, and tasty!

Black beans have gluten (barley) so be aware, other than that there are so many options for celiac! Chicken, plantains, rice, yucca are all gf and absolutely delicious. Chicken is free of the top 10 allergens. We have been coming to this place for years and it is the perfect place for families (my kids love everything), gf people, allergy people, and even vegans! (We were told all side dishes are vegan.)

Everything I get is GF! There are many more options I don't get as well. (Rice, beans, plantains, etc..) I get the roasted chicken with amazingly crispy fries, deliciously seasoned green beans, and a salad with the best cilantro dressing you've ever had. They also have two delicious side sauces, a green one with a spicy kick and one yellow one similar to mustard and mayo mix. I am GF and dairy free so I LOVE my options here.

The most delicious chicken!!!! My only critique is that the woman who took our order was not informed. She initially told us we could only have the green beans as a side. I was skeptical as they also had white rice and green beans that I thought for sure were gf. When I asked her specifically about each item, after checking she said they were gf including the French fries. And thank goodness because the fries were so good!!
