Gluten free menu with a few new options. Only 2 gluten free swirls but the margaritas are great.

My rating is based purely on their knowledge and lack of options. They have like 3 options on their gluten free menu, and it seems like it would have been very easy to make a little extra effort to add to it. I hated going here with friends because it made me feel like "oh you're gluten free, here is a dry piece of salmon and that is your only option". Do your self a favor and just ask your friends if you can pick a different place. Never coming back.

I'm not gonna lie. I miss Aqui's BBQ chicken burrito and quesadillas like crazy. Wish they had a gf version of those!

Still, they have a few tasty gf options on the menu. I usually get the lemon chicken small plate, or the chicken taco. It's simple, but fresh and consistently good. The flourless chocolate cake is really yummy, too. I often choose that as my birthday cake!

I used to live eating here until I became gluten free. Now I find it too difficult, since they have a very limited selection of gf choices. Their food is so good but they need to take the gluten out. Hopefully soon.

Good variations of choices, organic and healthy but tasteful. Also provide margaritas.

Zero efforts to reduce cross contamination. They explicitly state on their menu that they prep your food on the same stations they use to process wheat-containing food. This is absolutely not celiac friendly. There is no guarantee of food being gluten free. They have a menu with a “wheat allergy” section, but that’s just a scam since there is cross contamination.

Limited menu but tasty. Although it says "celiacs shouldn't eat here", I haven't had any problems and I have been eating here over 5 years.

I didn't eat here. They have a pamphlet by the menu that says, "If you have Celiac, don't eat here." I was disappointed after reading the other reviews. The food people were eating looked great.
