The waitress was knowledgeable about celiac. I ordered, nachos to start, 1 carne asada taco and one carnitas, with salad, along with lemonade. Everything was brought, as ordered. I had no problems. The food taste could improve, but it was safe.

Came for a working lunch on a weekday. Music was very loud. Wait staff seemed knowledgeable of what menu items were safe and which were not, and good about keeping the food items separate. Both of us got the nachos. From a gluten perspective, they were fine. From a taste perspective, they were far from the best nachos I've ever had. Moreover, my vegetarian companion was given nachos with beef, despite the fact she ordered regular nachos while only I had added meat. They had some other menu items that sounded interesting, but I'd only go back if a coworker wanted to go.

Not good. Don’t go here, gluten allergy or not. Definitely got glutened and food wasn’t even good. Ordered a burrito bowl but was given a sloppy, gross salad. Guacamole was also definitely a day old.

Nothing beats the Tuesday/Thursday taco deal! $2 tacos and if you get 3+ you get free rice and beans. Not many GF places where you can get a full meal for $6!! The rice and beans aren’t anything special but the shrimp tacos are so good!

Dine at your own risk if you’re sensitive, I got very sick after ordering a gluten free taco. The taco shells appear to be deep fried, and they don’t have a separate fryer :( if you’re not gluten free, this place has great food!

First of all the margaritas are amazing! Our waitress was the most knowledgeable I’ve ever experienced and made changes to my order to guarantee GF and DF per my request. She confirmed that menu is marked and their chips and salsas are all GF. I had three tacos with rice and black beans (could have eaten a gallon of the beans!!) and of course two margaritas!! Loved it all and no sickness after. Def will be going back.

I had the Korean Beef Bowl at Bel Air Cantina. It was delicious and I didn’t get sick or any stomach pains. Of course, I did let the waiter know that I had to eat gluten free and she checked with the cook to make sure what I ordered contained no gluten including the tortilla chips.

Had for dinner and came back next day for lunch! For COVID they asked us to order online vs calling in to-go order. Site worked like a charm and GF options were plentiful and staff helpful in answering questions. Aware of celiac. Food came out marked as GF. Tacos for dinner and burrito bowl for lunch both double thumbs up.

They make the chips in the morning so no cross contamination! My plate came out with a marked sticker about my allergy

So many gluten free options on the menu. I would say 50% of the tacos were good with corn tortilla. Nachos, even queso! This is some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever had.

They have great regular food options too, the 2 non-celiacs I was with LOVED it. Such a cute atmosphere. It was literally perfect
