I've been eating at Baja fresh for years. When I thought I had Celiac disease I stopped eating out altogether. A couple years back after looking at Baja fresh his website I was pleased to find out I could eat there except for the obvious cross contamination issues or obvious menu choices (flour tortillas, breaded fish ).
Anyway I don't need to give detailed account of how I found out. Turns out the Spanish rice is fried in the deep fryer (cross contamination), and the chicken and steak are marinated in a brine that has soy sauce. This is a good reminder to not become complacent and ask servers regularly about whether menu items are gluten free of not, even if you frequent the restaurant often. I
I THOUGHT I told the servers several times I couldn't have gluten, I also thought when I mentioned I couldn't have the rice my server would have let me know about the steak and chicken. None of that was the case, I have to work on getting confirmation everytime.

Diagnosed 6-09 with celiac, 1-10 with microscopic colitis...no milk proteins and no raw veggies for me bummer eh?! I'm dealing well for the most part though. Being gluten free is sooo much better I can't explain how much better I feel!
