I asked and they have a dedicated fryer for chips. I had several GF options and did not get sick. I’ll be going back

This is a great place... obviously they use gluten it’s a Taco place BUT Very accommodating to sub things for those sensitive to gluten free. My perspective has always been to accept all, not just me.

There is a “gluten sensitive” menu. Stick to that. They evidently use a separate fryer for tortilla chips and the guacamole is delicious. Staff is fairly knowledgeable and willing to ask questions. Interested to see if others have had success.

Update: I had a few questionable experiences with the gluten sensitive menu, so I have not been back.

They do not have a dedicated fryer anymore. The black beans and both of the braised meats contain beer. The only things that are supposedly truly gf are salads, the al pastor taco, the mushroom taco, and the corn (huitlacoche) taco. :(

Went here thinking that they have a dedicated fryer— they do not. Waitress said they can’t guarantee no cross contamination. I am very sensitive so I chose to not even try here. I wouldn’t eat here if you have celiac.

I went here with friends and while the waitress understood gluten free dining, she needed me to explain the difference for someone with celiac. Then she was able to confirm that there isn’t anything on the menu that is “safe”. The “braised” meat is marinated in beer, the chips are cooked in a shared fryer with other breaded things as well. I ended up watching my non GF friends eat.

Although we came for taquitos, we were informed that usually the only gf option for taquitos is fried separately, but today they had been fried together with the gluten options. So we had to settle for the tacos. The server was knowledgeable and marked options for gluten allergy items. The food was amazing and the gluten free came out on a separate platter just for me. Will come back for more. :)

Staff knowledgeable, tacos delicious. Ask for the specific gluten free menu- it also contains info on what is safe and what is in a shared fryer. Sit at the bar for super fast service!

Food was excellent but they do not have a separate fryer from where they do the corn chips and other fried foods. They have a separate gf menu that you need to ask for, the hostess told us there was no separate menu, but I asked the server and there was.
