They have a gluten free menu, seem very knowledgeable about cross contamination...but here I am, sick as a dog, exactly two hours after eating, which is how it always is. Probably a one-time screw-up, but I have a "one strike, you're out" policy. Food's good, though?

Love this place! Very accommodating and never been sick. Be aware of tortilla chips, as they are fried in the same fryer.

My husband had the grilled avocado (it’s an app).  He loved it and rated it 10/10.  It had some pico, manchengo cheese, and chili oil.
Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita (I think it was a special) it was sweeter than expected, but clearly made from real ingredients, not a mix.
Seafood enchiladas, so delicious!! Lots of seafood and a creamy tomatillo sauce.  I would definitely eat this again!

Staff very knowledgeable, substituted fresh warm corn tortillas for chips due to cross contamination in frying, to enjoy with salsa and guacamole. Food was delicious

The food was delicious!! They have a really huge gluten-free menu, I was quite impressed! It’s fairly loud inside, but the food was amazing (I got seafood enchiladas) and the drinks were great, too!

I wanted to love this place-but they made me (celiac) sick. They were knowledgeable, subbed chips for corn tortillas, but I think in the lunch rush something got contaminated.

I had the best experience at cactus. We were first greeted with this waitress who was very excited to tell me about the restaurant about the gluten free menu when I mentioned that it was our first time there and that I had a gluten intolerance. I asked her what she would suggest and she said the brisket tacos which were fantastic. When we asked for the check she came back with a flan on the house just because it was our first time there! What made it even better was that she knew we were from out of town and that it wasn't very likely we will be back anytime soon. I was impressed and if I fly back to Seattle I will most definitely be back!!

Gf menu for easy ordering. Don't eat the chips if you need a dedicated fryer. I had the tortilla soup and it was very good.

The list their chips as GF with a disclaimer that they're deep fried with flour containing products. It's a huge red CC flag to me. Otherwise the food was great and you should definitely go for a drink!

I’ve eaten here several times and the staff has always been very knowledgeable about Celiac Disease. They assure me that gloves will be changed, new and clean cookware will be used, and they are always honest about the menu items that cannot be guaranteed as GF. There is an entirely Gluten Free menu, and they allow me to bring my own GF chips when I order the guacamole. I’m a very sensitive Celiac, and I’ve never had any problems here. The food is amazing!!

I ordered takeout and the host who took my order was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. She was patient and answered all my questions. They have a separate GF menu (you can filter their online menu by dietary restriction). She gave me a heads up not to get the chips with the guacamole but that I could order a side of tortillas and assured me the kitchen would change gloves and clean the grill, though I got the green enchiladas, so that wasn’t an issue. Very delicious, clearly marked “celiac” on my meal and no issues after eating it. Great experience and will absolutely return.

Knowledgeable staff. I have eaten here many times and have only had one time when they mixed up the order. I double checked before eating it and they quickly redid the order.

The restaurant has quite a few options for GF, but there’s simply too much cross contamination. My Nima sensor tested positive on all three “gluten free” entrees. Definitely a spot for gluten sensitive, but not full blown celiacs. I passed on eating of course and waited until I was home.
