My original review was glowing. However, after returning I realized that there were some things that were likely cross contaminated. There is a flauta that was marked gluten free, that I'm quite certain was deep fried. I just took a peek at their menu, and it appears it has changed, so maybe they have now adjusted!

The servers are aware of Celiac and helpful about Celiac. Gluten free was marked on the menu. Baked tortilla chips are substituted for fried. Delicious food. I have eaten here during times when it is not busy and did not get sick. Another time I got sick. They brought fried chips instead of baked and I reacted.

This pains me to write this because the food is so delicious, but not safe for celiacs or gluten sensitive people. My husband and I are there for lunch a few weeks ago (he’s celiac, I’m sensitive). We told the waiter, he seemed very knowledgeable and advised us what was “safe”. I had a sensitivity reaction that afternoon and took about a week to recover. My husband is still feeling the effects. I spoke with another celiac friend who said nothing was safe and we most likely got glutened. So very sad that we have to cross this off our list.

Spoke to manager & she made it very clear that the food is gluten friendly not safe from cross contamination and not safe for celiacs!!

We left and decided not to risk it because I get sick for at least a week when I eat gluten.

First of all, they are amazing COVID safety wise. They take your temp and space the tables out. We felt very safe sitting outside today. Also, they asked about allergies before we sat down to tell the chef, prepared the food so fast, and I had so many safe options! My son and husband loved it, and so did I! No reactions! Amazing and will be back soon!!!!!

Best tacos and margaritas I have ever had! The hostess asks before you even sit down if you have any food allergies. The staff is very knowledgeable about celiac. The chips are cross contaminated and they will bring out gluten free chips for you. The food, drinks and service was amazing! Highly recommend the brisket tacos!!

Amazing food!! 100% worth it for anyone with celiac. I had tacos (shrimp and steak) and tried a cheesy dip. Also tried the flan which is hard to find! They automatically asked for allergies when I sat down and all staff was notified. They brought our corn tortillas and my own salsa for me so that I didn’t risk cross contamination. Will come back for sure!!!
