Thoroughly enjoyed a quick (45 minutes) bite here while passing through. Wish we had more time to order other things and sit back to relax and enjoy. Many options are gluten free or can be made so and I didn’t get sick. Delightful experience.

Went here with friends; this location is newer than the Wheaton one, which I haven’t been to. They have some marked options on the menu that can be made gluten-free, but unfortunately only one kind of taco, the tilapia tacos — fortunately, these were very good! Make sure you indicate that you want your item made gluten-free.

The tortilla chips are not gluten-free. Kind of a bummer.

I've eaten dinner here thrice and had amazing food without getting cross contaminated. Most of the dinner is GF or easily made GF with a quick item switch. However, my fourth trip was during brunch. My friend and I were unaware that gluten was on every item in the brunch menu - pancakes & crepes, for example, but there was no where else I could possibly eat in that area. (Manna, a near-by dedicated restaurant was closed that day.) I explained my issue to the server, who was very kind and understanding. The chef, too, worked at providing a safe meal. Alas, I was still glutened. It was "mild" (my body is obnoxiously sensitive,) but they did the best they could in a kitchen filled with flour. Lesson learned. Dinner is safe and definitely worth the trip to Wheaton, but NEVER GO FOR BRUNCH.

My family and I stopped in here after touring Wheaton College. They were having some sort of food festival in the street in front of the restaurant but we ate inside. The menu is clearly marked with what is not gluten free by saying “NGF” if it does contain gluten (and sadly this does include their tortilla chips because of a shared fryer). My dad got some street corn as an entree which was pretty good but not very spicy. My sister got the Altiro tacos. I got the Al vegetal tacos which comes with a spicy chipotle aioli sauce. All of the food was very good and very fresh. I would definitely come back if I’m ever in the area again!

Server was pretty knowledgeable albeit with the right questions. Beware no dedicated fryer for chips, which server made sure to point out. Most menu items are gluten free - the ones WITH gluten are marked —and the tacos were excellent, especially the shrimp & chorizo one. Outstanding, creative cocktails, most of which are tequila or mezcal based. Entire street blocked off on summer for outdoor eating at a number of restaurants which taxed the staff a bit.
