GLUTEN FREE

Any menu item that includes plantains is gluten free! However, if you have Celiac or are severely allergic to gluten, please let us know so we can properly accommodate you! 


Some items on our menu that contain gluten (ex- breaded chicken strips, breaded chicken breast, pastelillos, etc.) are also deep fried. So, for anyone with severe allergies or Celiac, we would not only fry your plantains in a separate oil that is ONLY used for non-gluten items, but we can also ensure that your food will be handled carefully (no cross-contamination).


We hope to continue to build our gluten free customer base and enjoy the thought of everyone being able to eat their favorite, juicy burger, italian, or any of our sandwiches that they choose without any worries!

Gluten Free Options:


-Any of our 20 jibaritos!

-Puerto Rican Rice (Arroz con Gandules)

-Adobo Fries

-Soup (seasonal)

-Maduros (sweet plantains)

-Tostones (fried plantains with garlic)

-Tostone Grande

-Walking Jibarito

-Platanitos
