Before Wahoos updates their brand, there were several gluten free and vegetarian options. Now, I’m lucky if I can find two. The food quality has also gone down as well, with the items I’ve tried being pretty bland.
Ordered 3 gluten free meals. Tested 2 of the 3 meals with a Nima Sensor & it was Nima approved. The fryer is shared so make sure not to order anything fried off the gluten free menu.
The manager is knowledgeable. Maybe is cross contamination is a problem for you it may not be the place but I eat here often and am sensitive and haven't had any issues. I LOVE that I can have the enchiladas here (no flour in the sauce). Can't eat the steak here because marinated in soy but other meats are fine.
stick with the tacos, no cajun seasoning, rice and BLACK beans...not cajun white. You should be ok. ***update*** double check about the steak. The chicken and fish, I don't get the blackened.
The Wahoo's chain is a solid place to get fish tacos in Los Angeles. However, my experience today at this location only merited 3 stars.I had friends in town who wanted fish tacos, so I took them to Wahoo's, in part because I have Celiac disease and therefore can't eat gluten. When we entered, I asked about gluten free options. The guy at the register asked someone behind the counter, and reported back that they didn't have GF. I pointed at the sign, which clearly stated that they have GF options. The register guy went back to the guy behind the counter, who came out to talk to me. He asked if I wanted Gluten free or "no gluten free." (Who asks for gluten?)I proceeded to ask questions about menu items, but didn't feel confident about his answers until I did some research on my phone. Eventually, I ordered two fish tacos, one regular, one slaw style, with rice and beans. When my meal came, I asked the server if the tortillas were only corn. He hesitated, then said, "Yes..?"The tacos tasted good (not spectacular, but good). The rice and beans were basic. The service was fast and friendly, but not knowledgeable. Please please please train your staff!
My celiac daughter was treated and fed well! The managers were so knowledgeable and friendly! She felt safe and loved the food!
There's no gluten free menu, but I've eaten here successfully many, many times. I'm pretty sensitive to gluten and it seems to be okay. Stay away from the fryer (no chips). I pretty much stick to the fish tacos and fish enchiladas (with green sauce) and the black beans and white rice. Never had a problem. If you do a search on the internet, there's a list of menu items floating around that are supposed to be safe. I've never asked the staff about it and I doubt they would know much.
They have a dedicated GF menu. Enchiladas are great. I've eaten here 3 times the manager is great with cross contamination the staff members I remind to use new utensils for cooking. Also be sure to order from the GF menu exactly how it is listed. The staff offers sides and options with meals that are not GF so I had to check back on the GF menu to see what was and wasn't GF. NO dedicated GF fryers :0(
Food is ok, not fantastic. I hadn't been here before and asked about a gluten free menu, I had to ask 3 different ways for clarification of what I could and could not have, the employee acted like I should know all this already. Other than that, the rest of the service was ok, I had fish tacos, they were ok.
