Flying into Charlotte airport at 6am on Thursday, I was completely 100% exhausted and hungry. I am not a huge fan of Mexican food at 6am (who really is?), but it was one of the few restaurants even open at that hour and I knew they had gluten free options. Low and behold, they had a rather large gluten free menu AND had normal breakfast options. SCORE! I ended up ordering the huevos, which came with scrambled eggs, bacon, and beans as well as corn tortillas. I ended up ordering extra tortillas and ditching the beans. It was a very filling meal for about $10 so it wasn’t badly priced. The food took about 10 minutes to come out after I ordered so I was able to make my 7:20AM flight with time to spare. I did not get sick from this meal (yay!), but originally they brought me out potatoes, which, when I insisted they double checked, they found that the potatoes contained gluten. Thankfully, the restaurant was very apologetic and made me an entire new plate from scratch. They did understand gluten free but the kitchen made the mistake–so, as with any restaurant, check your food!
The wait staff was not very friendly, but that may be understandable since it was very early and they were probably dealing with grumpy travelers. The waitress never came back to check on me, but the food was so fantastic that when I caught the red eye Sunday night/Monday morning, I went back there for breakfast. And if you are crunched on time, you can easily order from their to-go station, which is what I did Monday morning just because I wanted to sit at my terminal while eating.
In summary, great food, decent price, and lots of gluten free options! Check it out next time you are in Charlotte airport.
My trip to San Diego was fantastic and exhausting…..and I promise to post all about the gluten free adventures there….once I catch up on sleep 🙂
