El Rancho's Fantastic Celiac Friendly Menu

This restaurant has closed.

So it's no secret, once someone knows you have Celiac, they essentially start to 'look out for you'.  A while back I walked into my office with a photo copy of a menu from El Rancho's Spanish Restaurant.  The menu had C's all over it for Celiac friendly menu items.  Was great, lots of C's to indicate gluten free.

2 Amigo Platter
It didn't take long for us to decide to go their.  El Rancho is located in the heart of the 118 Ave. rebuild.  What an effort that area is making, and it was great to see such a great restaurant continuing to operate in that area and have a totally renovated building.

My colleague suggested suggested we try the 2 Amigo's Platter.  It had 2 Flautas, 2 tacos and 2 enchiladas salvadorenas with an El Rancho salad for 16.95.  For an appetizer we each had a pupusa ($2.75/each).  As you can see by the photo, the platter is plenty of food.

The platter also included some salsa for your taco's and a scoop of sour cream for your flautas.  The little bit of salad was just perfect to munch on between each item.

Would we recommend this restaurant with its gluten free options?  Heck ya!  I knew this was going to be a great authentic food, when I saw 'mom' walk out of the kitchen to say hi to some guests from the community.  Always a good sign!

Here are some of the other menu items available:
  1. Appetizers like Tamales, Yuca Frita, Plantanios
  2. All the soups.
  3. Main courses like Pescado Frito, Carne Azada, Biste Encebollado and Pollo Encebollado

  1. On the menu it has a 'C' for celiac choice beside Quesadilla. It says the quesadilla is made with a flour tortilla!!!!
