I ate here this Saturday staff is very knowledgeable about items and marinades. There are corn tortillas and chicken and shrimp items that are done in gluten free marinade. I was told the corn tortillas are warmed on same cooktop as flour so they are aware and careful but there is some cross contamination. I am celiac and had no adverse effects last night. I would recommend but be cautious about asking about preparation but I was happy about the knowledge of celiac and the manager came to my table to explain how things are prepared. Overall I would recommend

Friend wanted to meet here so I called ahead. Guy who answered phone said NO gf menu but servers could direct diners to what could possibly be made gf. Called back the next day and spoke to Phil. He said that they have very few GF options and that ALL his proteins are cooked on the same woodfire grill surface so there is always cross contamination. Not at all celiac friendly!

When we arrived we spoke to management about Celiac precautions as well as vegan options. Corn chips and tortillas were an option and were prepared separate from contaminants. The food is outstanding!

Not Celiac safe. We thought it'd be ok based on the stellar reviews, but I got chimmichurri steak and my partner got enchiladas with red sauce. Server assured us it was safe and we've both been sick for several days since eating lunch here. Don't risk it!

The food and drinks tasted great, but I got sick after eating here. They do not have a separate GF menu which is fine, except getting ahold of a waiter that was knowledgeable about gluten was difficult. I confirmed several times that the food I had ordered and received was gluten free, my waiter did not seem confident while reassuring me but I was starving and ate regardless. A few hours later I started getting my typical symptoms of gluten. I did it to myself as I had a feeling it would happen, however I was disappointed in the lack of gluten education and concern from our waiter. I won’t be going there again which is a bummer because I love Mexican food. I will say that their chips and salsa were delicious and part of what gave them 2 stars instead of 1.
