I was a bit confused by all of the positive reviews on here- they have plenty of GF options, but there is a warning at the bottom of the menu that states "if you have an allergy to gluten we recommend that you not dine with us". So I didn't eat here- only do so if you're comfortable with that statement!

Chips are gluten free and tasty, but can’t eat here with a nut allergy (strong warning on the menu). Great drinks though!

Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, and I was informed immediately what was not gluten free - amazingly most of the menu is or can be made that way. Delicious burrito, highly recommend!

The only thing I couldn’t order was the flour tortillas. They assured us that everything else was gluten free. Nice spot to grab a bite.

The food here was good. I got nachos and chicken and veggie tacos. They bring out chips and salsa too which is very good. Nearly everything on the menu is gf. They also have vegan and vegetarians options. So, as everyone has been saying the wraps are made of wheat, but they have soft and hard corn taco shells.

If you like Mexican food that tastes like it came out of a microwave oven at 7-Eleven, this place is for you.

Outstanding for so many reasons. #1 the menu clearly states that everything except the flour tortilla and wheat tortilla for burritos aren’t GF. #2 from 11:30-3 every day of the week you can get $10 meals (that includes a drink) and of course chips + salsa. Hard to imagine why anyone would pass on going to Blockheads...

Staff is always great too!
