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!

I’m giving them 5 🌠because they tried so hard to make sure my food was safe and delicious 😋 (my name is Mona and I’m 7 and have celiac). The manager was so caring and we appreciated it.

Update 1/8/19: They did a really good job at making sure that my food was gluten free. They have a new standard to avoid cross-contamination. They wore gloves and put a sticker on the plate that said gluten free. It was great.🍴🏆🥇.

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.

Tons of gf choices on the menu. My family enjoyed tacos in corn tortillas and the bowls. Server was helpful and clearly announced the gf entrees as she brought them out.

Yum! Fantastic food! Chips, salsa, and queso all tested gf with Nima! So did the super tasty carne asada bowls with all the fixings! We loved this restaurant, everything from the friendly and patient staff to the decor to the delicious and safe food. Can’t wait until we return!

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.
