I’ve come here over ten times with celiac disease. The staff/ GM are very aware of celiac and informed me that they take the precautions. Separate fryer for the chips and they bring your tacos out on a separate plate. This is hands down the best restaurant.

I asked the server which tacos were gluten free and she said “all of them”……. Even the ones marinated in beer??? Not off to a great start. But they did have a gluten free menu and I just stuck with a salad to be safe.

The service here was excellent! As soon as I asked if the chips were gluten free, he walked me through the whole menu saying that certain things were breaded, fried, or cooked with beer. The chips are corn chips fried in a dedicated fryer and the salsa was so good! The tacos are tiny so get a few but they are so delicious.

They had a separate, small, gluten free menu. At the bottom was a list of a few things that had beer in the marinade but no other gluten. Service was fine. Food wise, for those of us that are gluten free and those of us who are not, we were over all not impressed. As someone from Texas the Rojo salsa and corn tortillas were the only things truly good. Everything else while eatable really missed the mark, generally by an over all lack of seasoning though things like the guacamole the proportions were off because while they do make it on the premises they do a ton of it ahead of time and have to add waaaaay to much lime to keep it from going brown. I’ve lived in the North East for the last 15 years so I’ve found many a place that was worse than this, and I can definitely see why people who’ve never really had Mexican food like it and it is a place I could kill a craving at if I were desperate, just don’t go expecting really good tacos if you know what authentic ones taste like.

Very helpful and knowlegable. They do have a sepatate menu with both gluten free and "a little gluten" items. I was asked if I avoided gluten or had celiac. When I said I had celiac, they notified the kitchen to clean the work surface, wash hands and change gloves for my order. They also gave us extra salsa in separate bowls with tortilla for me. The server who brought the food asked who was gluten free in our party and was attentive in serving my plate away from other items with gluten. The food was great and I'll definitely be going back.

just wondering in our server told us that there is nothing on here that is celiac safe. She then said there are only four items that are with no gluten the items added, but that they make no guarantees. it's only the second time I've ever walked out of a restaurant.

The staff was very knowledgeable. Though they don’t have a gluten free menu, the staff knows a lot about which is safe and even told me about shared fryers being used for their chips. They brought me out corn tortillas to use for the queso instead which are so good! They’re homemade! Would easily go back.

There is a small gluten free menu, but NOT a dedicated fryer. We ordered gluten free food from the gluten free menu and it was fried in the same fryer, according to our very conscientious server. The food was average.

Tacos are great! They change the oil and fryer multiple times a week, so check on day of your visit to see if the chips are safe to eat. Margaritas are also GF.

They have a small,separate GF menu. This menu specifically states that they are not a GF facility and do not guarantee safety of their food. They also put a section on the GF menu that is gluten reduces because there is beer in the prep. They include items in the GF section that are made in a contaminated fryer. Thankfully my server was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Chips are safe. Guacamole is really good. The special margarita was syrupy. The rest of the food I tried did not have much flavor.
