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.

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.

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.
