They created a separate area for my food, used clean gloves, utensils, and new tubs of ingredients to decrease the chance of cross contamination. I got the Double Chicken Avocado Salad and just used a dressing from home to be 100% safe. Their dressing is gf though. Definitely a great drive thru option.

Food is good, but they do not have any separate prep areas for food. Their website specifically says they are not celiac friendly.

Great for something quick & yummy. My son has Celiac & had no issues. Chicken, rice, beans, corn tortillas all good.👍🏼

Ordered the Pollo bowl and had no issues afterwards. Food is okay to good, but I will give five stars because there aren’t too many GF options in the area and it’s nice to not get sick!

It’s really good and they try, but I have two out of two times found noodles or something not gluten free in my side and it makes me sick

They have a GF menu online. I️ always get the chicken and corn tortillas. They do have a lot of options. I️ don’t know how knowledgeable the staff is, but I’ve never asked and have just ordered from the GF menu. I’ve seen the chicken prepared, and I️ think if you get chicken and corn tortillas, there is little risk of cross contamination. I’ve never felt sick after eating there. I️ have celiac disease.

My son had the kids combo- chicken leg and rice. Both tested celiac safe in our Nima sensor. We were so relieved and delighted!

Love, love, love this place! We have been going here as long as I can remember, ( my family and I have been gluten free for 22+ years) and we always order either the pollo bowl or tacos al carbon no problem.

They use shared equipment and don't use clean knives to chop up your food. I would not recommend for anyone who is a celiac.

Very helpful people when asking about gluten.

The thing is with a lot of these food chains is that there will be cross contamination, so if you are diagnosed with celiac, I would stay away. The rice has has traces of gluten in it, but the chicken is GF as far as I know. If you do not have serious gluten issues, get the chicken bowls or salads.

They offer a delicious variety of Gluten Free items. They are a great Mexican restaurant to eat at when you have that craving, but are in a hurry.

Their food selection might have a lot of gluten free options on their menu. However, they use shared utensils, cutting boards etc.

This is an unsafe gluten filled fast food joint. The first review is probably fake.

Not even an attempt to understand my wife's need to avoid cross contamination. Asked them to change their gloves but realized no one was wearing gloves! Avoid if you don't want to get sick!
