The food here is decent. The waitress was knowledgeable about which items I could and couldn't eat. Guac was brought out by someone who wasn't our waitress with glutinous chip pieces, but she immediately swooped in to fix it before I could even touch it. Probably not GF enough for someone with very serious celiac.

This is our next favorite Cactus Flower, after the one in Navarre (best managers ever).

You can do only soft corn tortillas but they can do tacos, burritos with any filling. The sauces are mostly GF, and all the rice, queso and beans are safe. We eat here every time we visit and never have a problem.

For crispy tacos go to the Navarre location.

The staff is knowledgeable and patient. Great food and great service!

Everyone was nice and willing to accommodate but they DO NOT have a GF menu. We did not eat there.

Excellent menu choices. My waitress was extremely knowledgeable about gluten free choices and what could be substituted. Method of inputting order allowed kitchen to know immediately that order was gluten free. Only 2 items could not be made gluten free. Can't wait to go back and try a different meal.

We walked in and the hostess assured us multiple things can be done gluten free, and gave us a run down of what to order and what not. When we sat down, the waitress came to take our drink order. My boyfriend said, "Ok, and we also know what we'd like to eat." She rudely snapped at him, "I asked what you are drinking." Ok sorry... anyway I went to order something the hostess had suggested and I doubled checked to confirm it was all gluten free, she again snapped and said "No, it's not." I asked what ingredient would not be and she said, "Nothing here is gluten free." I said, "That's not what the hostess said...." (plus the reviews on here which is how I found this restaurant) and she said, "I'm not going to lie to you. NOTHING here is gluten free." She was very loud and rude about it. I walked out in tears. Would not suggest going here, especially celiacs. Oh well.

Fresh California style Mexican food! They have a separate GF menu and were very familiar with it. I had the white queso and the shrimp mango salad! Yum!

Very fresh. Salsa for chips particularly tasted "just made". Really enjoyed my shredded beef enchiladas.

We went to the Pensacola location down by the beach.

I have Celiacs, and so do both of my toddlers.

They were so friendly and didn't blink an eye when we requested the gluten free menu. They prepare it in a separate area. There were only 2 mix ups: the waitress initially put gluten chips on our table, and she promptly switched them out when we told her we were gluten free, and the guacamole initially came out with the gluten chips and she gave us new guac sans chips. She thanked us for letting her know.

We had zero reaction to the following items and they were all REALLY TASTY: Ground beef tacos spanish rice lime rice white queso corn chips ground beef enchiladas refried pinto beans guacamole

We are headed there again, and I will update my review if possible.

Chips and salsa were GF. Tostadas and tortilla soup were great. Many GF options available with corn tortillas.

Delicious food! Our waiter was knowledgeable about food allergies & informed me they could leave the sauce off & make just about anything GF. I had the tostado with beef. Great margarita (the Purist) too!

Yummy! We had chicken nachos. The bartender was very educated on gluten and cross contamination. The chips are from a bag, so no worries about them being in a fryer. The salsa and guacamole were so fresh! Didn't get sick!

Quite good! Sometimes I get servers who know all about the gf menu and are awesome about it. Sometimes I get servers who bring the chips with gluten but overall I've had pretty good service and they have a good selection to choose from. The food here is awesome.

Good food. Knowledgable staff. Mention you're gluten free and they'll take care of you. Chips are gluten free (from bag); homemade corn shells are not.

Cactus Flower serves delicious, fresh ingredients in their menu options. They always serve me Corn Tortilla Chips for my guacomole and are very receptive to dietary restrictions. I have eaten there several times and have always had a good experience.
