Their Baja-style tacos are made with corn tortillas, the food is always fresh and tasty. Some other gluten-free items on the menu like street corn. Love this place and their mango salsa!

New restaurant that only uses GF soy sauce so all grill items (and the grill) are GF. Corn tortillas are GF. Rice and beans are GF. Most sauces are GF and will get fresh ones from back if asked. Crispy Wahoo NOT GF and fryer NOT dedicated so chips NOT GF. Will change gloves and take care if asked. Rosemary is manager and is great; ask for her.

Went here with my gluten-eating significant other with no intention of ordering anything. When I asked the woman who took his order if there was anything gluten free, she looked at me blankly for a bit before offering me any of the tacos (which are not all gluten free). Will not be eating here, at least not at this location.

Baja does NOT have gluten free meat! They use soy sauce. I found this out after asking and the checker and chef told me it does not have wheat. I asked what is in it and he said soy sauce, I told the chef we can’t eat that and he proceeded to tell me it was ok, no wheat. I asked him to show me the soy sauce and sure enough it does have wheat. There are very few things on their menu that do not have wheat. Do NOT eat here is you can not have gluten.

The kid at the register had no concept about gluten free. I asked if they could use fresh lettuce and other toppings so I wouldn’t be cross contaminated and was told they couldn’t. I wasn’t about to risk it. This place isn’t celiac safe.

Celiac friendly?
