Taco based restaurant has many marked GF items on the menu for this celiac to choose. I had (spicy!) fish tacos but next time, I’ll try one of the bowls.

I came here for lunch and was super happy with the amount of gluten free menu items. About 75% of all tacos are gluten free which was great! I told the waitress I had a severe gluten allergy and they took note and gave it to the kitchen. The only bad part of my experience is that the chips are not gluten free which was sad bc the salsas looked yummy but I could try them.

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.🍴🏆🥇.

The menu was clearly marked for gluten-free. The waitstaff was knowledgeable about cross contamination and checked items for me with the cook. I had the 3 salsa and chips, the three taco dinner with corn tortillas (beef, chicken and lamb). The rice and black bean sides were also good. They were unsure about the pinto beans being GF. I loved everything and did not have any reaction later.

I was nervous but the kids wanted tacos. The waitress immediately knew that they had dedicated Fryer for chips and tostada. It was delicious and cute place right on the square. I would go back there for sure. Teen got a burrito and it was huge. Gluten free tostada was smallish but with chips and queso- just right.

We were able to have chips and salsa, many taco options. They seemed really understanding of gluten-free protocol.

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!
