Love this place. They have a separate gluten free menu, and the staff was knowledgeable or willing to ask the chef for me. Their queso (unlike many other Mexican places that put beer in the cheese) is gluten free! The tacos are yummy. Get 3-4 for a meal.

Very good for people with gluten allergies! The corn tortillas are delicious and I had the short ribs and spicy mahi. Short ribs was the best! They did tell me the grill is shared with flour tortillas. Chips are yummy with green salsa verde!

Very impressed with Bakersfield. It's always nice to find good Mexican food that is gluten-free. Two of us went for lunch and had the queso appetizer with two tacos each. Plenty of food and super good! I had no problem with the chips or tacos.

Pricing is very reasonable for the area and service was good. If back in Pitt would definitely try again!

They don't have anything exclusively GF but prepare their own tortillas without flour. I had short rib and chicken tacos and both were really, really good!

They're clear about cross-contamination, so you want to be cautious -- there are several restaurants in that area that may have safer options.

They are mostly corn based with a few exceptions and they do have a separate fryer for their chips and flour fried items. My server was very knowledgable and what she didn't know she went to management to ask. They made sure to clarify with me that the food was not prepared on a desperate surface and they didn't necessarily vet all the vendors whose food they used so I appreciated their honesty. I had the pork belly pastor and huitlacoche tacos and both were fantastic! The huitlacoche had corn truffles in it and was very earthy in flavor. I will definitely go back!

Cool atmosphere and looks like tasty food...but they say none of it is gluten free except for: the chips. They are fried in a dedicated fryer. Just walk next door and eat at a place with a gluten free menu.

Servers are super knowledgeable. no gluten-free menu but majority of the menu is actually gluten-free. Can fry the tostadas in a dedicated gluten-free fryer. Food was delicious and good prices.

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.
