    This place was spectacular! I almost cried with how GF friendly they were. Our server was very knowledgable about GF and was extremely gracious in answering all of my questions. The menu items were also clearly labeled GF. I had tacos which were utterly Delish as well as their pineapple cider which was very good. The kicker was that they served their tacos with TWO corn tortillas instead of one because Corn tortillas have a tendency to tear and as the server said, "who likes a torn tortilla?" The attention to detail was commendable. We have gone back a couple times and would recommend it to anyone GF or non GF.

    I like the Green Lemon, but would not risk eating the chips. They will make guacamole in front of you, and it's excellent. They have great bowls. My go-to meal is Fitness Chicken, love it!

    As stated in one of the previous reviews, this place isn't celiac friendly. Although I asked for the gluten free menu, I was only informed of the chips being fried with gluten foods after specifically asking the wait staff. I ended up ordering my nachos with corn tortillas instead of chips, but I guess those could have been contaminated as well. Despite being a celiac, I do not feel "small" amounts of gluten, so I cannot say for sure whether I was "glutened". Nonetheless, the food was excellent and the portions large, which is why I only deduct one star.

    I enjoyed my taco, it tasted fresh. I did not get sick from eating here but I also made a point not to eat anything fried! None of the chips or hard taco shells. Cross contamination can occur there from what I understand. They wanted to give us a free dessert (very kind) but it was fried churro and bananas foster so I could not eat it. Very cool atmosphere. On Tuesday it's very crazy due to $2 tacos and lots of people go to drink. Looks like a cool spot to hang out.

    They had Celica friendly items, however the waitress was not very educated. It was delicious!

    Green Lemon has a gluten-free menu but does not understand the definition of gluten-free. Their chips are fried in a fryer with other breaded-containing items and many of the meals listed as gf contain tortilla strips and other fried items that would disqualify their food as "gluten-free." Other than this, the food here is awesome but you have to be smart about what you order if you have Celiac/gluten intolerance. Don't eat the chips—they are cross contaminated in the fryer—so bring your own. Some of the bowls have tortilla strips—request without because they are probably fried. They are not trained to understand cross contamination here. I spoke to the manager who said there will be a meeting the week of 8/4/13 to redefine their item menus as gluten-free... But none of the items listed with a "gf" has changed.
