AMAZING food!!! I got tacos and the chips and salsa, and everything was amazing! They have a dedicated fryer, staff were very knowledgeable about precautions, and my food came out marked gluten free. I loved our dinner and would definitely come 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.

The food is amazing! So delicious! They offer flour or corn tortillas and the gluten free entries are marked. And Tuesday and Thursdays are taco specials. $2 tacos!

Lemonade margarita is so delicious and hits the spot!

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

I have been going here for years and with a recent celiac diagnosis I wanted to see if I could still enjoy it. I LOVE the food and the manager was very attentive to what I needed. The server did ask me if I wanted corn or flour tortillas so I don’t think that the servers are well trained in what products have gluten. Due to not having immediate reactions to cross contamination, I cannot say how careful they were but the manager did say they changed gloves and that he watched the preparation process. My plate came out with an allergy sticker to note that my allergy was kept in mind during the process. Overall a good experience.

I got sick the last time I went there and should have known better not to come back but I love their salsa. I was told all the tacos marked “GF” are automatically gluten free and I didn’t need to request any changes. I told them I needed gluten free anyways because I didn’t want a repeat of last time. What do they serve me?Three “GF” tacos all on flour tortillas.

They had clear GF markings on the menu, and my waiter was very knowledgeable about the GF options. I got three tacos on corn tortillas with a side of rice and beans and it was amazing! I am celiac and sensitive to cross contamination and didn’t have any issues here, I told my server to mark my order with an allergy. Highly recommended!
