    small, super tight quarters (which is a testament to how good it is) and it was REALLY REALLY good! sat next to locals that lived one block up who come couple times a week. their corn tortillas are home made and do not contain wheat flour. lots of options for g free as long as you stay away from normal non gluten foods (burritos, chimmichangas, etc.). slight language barrier with waitress, but the lady who spoke fluent English was able to answer questions easily about contents of various foods.

    they have a celiac menu listing all the g free options and wait staff were all very aware. I ordered the seafood platter that included calamari, whitefish, scallops and French fries. it was all deep fat fried and way over any person's recommended caloric intake for the day, but since I NEVER get the option for these things normally, I went for it. yum, yum, yum! it was so worth it. it comes with tartar sauce but I also asked for cocktail sauce to dip it in. good thing our vacation including lots of walking ;-) I disagree with the $$$ rating, it was very affordable, especially for the amount of food!

    delicious, juicy burgers with the option of wrapping it in lettuce or on a bed of lettuce. fries were crisp and tasty. when we asked if fries were g free they were unsure but the manager went to his office and looked it up to confirm that they were. he apologized for the delay but I thanked him for checking instead of just taking the easy way out and saying "yes!".

    wait staff and management were very knowledgeable about celiac. they came out before serving the seafood soup to make sure I was ok with maltodextrin in the soup base that potentially contained a minimal amount of wheat (the manager's mother has celiac). mixed drinks were unique and delicious (but spendy). $11 for a mango mojito, but excellent lunch specials at affordable prices and speedy service. we came back the next day for happy hour (yummy sangria!) and ordered from a different waiter (super good shrimp ceviche served with a potato crisp) and he was also aware of what was and wasn't gluten free.

    delicious food. great prices. wait staff very knowledgeable and they were able to make the chicken with artichokes and capers in a lemon sauce without the flour. their regular and sweet potato fries are g free and fried in separate baskets. would definitely come again!
