    Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about my needs as a celiac. This was the first entree out in a restaurant I had as a newly diagnosed celiac, a sensitive one at this point too. The food was clean & clear. We went when they weren't too busy in the kitchen, which was probably good too as it is a shared kitchen of course. They understood the idea of cross-contamination though. Sure the menu is limited but what GF menu is not? It worked and I got to eat out with the family. I had the GF chicken 'piccata' with garlicky green beans. It was very delicious; I actually think I ended up with the best dish of our party!

    One of the owners waited on us. He was super friendly and explained how he and the other owners want as many people as possible to feel they can eat here so they keep their kitchen standards strict and their reputation is important to them in this regard. He says they source tortillas carefully. There is even a dedicated fryer for the vegan taquitos. There is no gluten in the whole facility. I'm a sensitive celiac and had no problems here. The taquitos were so delicious & crispy; even the sauces were addictive & so yummy. They are also soy free (which I need to)! Will return for sure! And the music rocked the night I was there anyway. The only thing to remember is that there is no bathroom because the place is so small, but you can easily get into the bar across the street and use theirs.
