Excellent chicken enchiladas! They don’t have a separate gf menu but there are only a handful of items that are not gf. Server was friendly and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Owner spoke with us and told us her daughter was recently diagnosed with celiac. They have a dedicated fryer for chips, have switched to gluten free soy in their marinades and are externally cautious with cross contamination. Food is so good

What a wonderful meal and even better experience with the staff. The owner/manager has Celiac disease so you can be sure you will be safe eating at this establishment. The manager suggested I change my steak street tacos to a different protein. She said while the steak is GF it’s prepared on the same flat top grill as the burritos. They do clean the grill for your GF order but she said why take the chance? I appreciated her honesty and really enjoyed the pulled chicken street tacos. They have a dedicated fryer for homemade tortilla chips. The salsa is made on site and was delicious! I highly recommend Bandanas.

Our family ordered takeout from here our first day in town for our vacation. Four out of the seven of us are gluten free. We all very much enjoyed our meals, and none of us got sick. They all seemed very knowledgeable about gluten free and cross-contamination. The food was so good that we were still talking about how good it was days later. I highly recommend this place.

We found this spot on the Find Me GF app and so glad we did! Staff was very knowledgeable about GF options and how to modify other dishes to be made GF. We had tacos that were great, and an app with tortilla chips that the waitress brought with chips from their dedicated fryer. We were really pleased with this meal and would recommend it!

Great with gluten free, and no one got sick. I will say however that the food itself is not very good. Only rating it five stars because of how great they are with gluten-free

The waitress was very helpful stating that almost everything on the menu can be altered to be gluten free. The food was all so delicious and hours later I haven't had a single issue (and I am VERY sensitive even to cross contamination.) Highly recommend!!

Great atmosphere. Great food. BYOB. My celiac daughter had guacamole and chips followed by carne asada tacos and loved it all. She felt fine afterwards as well. The salsa and the rest of our food was also delicious. They also have an ice cream bar where they will scoop GF ice cream (from a non contaminated container with a new/clean scoop) and make sundaes. Yum!

Our waiter here was amazing! Most things here can be made gluten free and they are very aware of cross contamination issues. The waiter took extra special care of us — a table of 7 with 2 celiacs and a nut allergy. Food was great. Felt very safe here.

Great food! Waitress was very helpful and understanding of my dietary restrictions. She said they could make anything GF except burritos as they didn’t have a GF wrap big enough.

This place must have made some changes because the staff was very knowledgeable about celiac - even informed me the steak tacos I ordered were not celiac safe because the steak is marinated in soy. All other meats were fine - chips are safe (separate fryer.) Food was delicious - great experience!!

Do not eat here if you have Celiac Disease. They have a gluten free menu with nachos on it but the chips are fried with flour containing food. They served my daughters Caesar salad in a tortilla shell with flour and suggested I just take the salad out of the shell and eat it. They are self-admittedly ignorant to the restrictions of someone with celiac disease.
