Good food. They don’t have a dedicated GF menu or their GF items marked. Most of their menu is GF, but the risk for cross contamination seemed pretty high. The gluten containing sauce was at the back and I saw drips of it in the other sauces. And with it being all open, subway style, the risk of utensils touching the flour tortillas before serving you is pretty high also.

Lots of gluten free options to customize your order. Skip the flour tortillas. Order hard shell for tacos. Store-made tortilla chips are made with white corn. Salads are great. Order burritos in a bowl.

A+++!!! This restaurant was super good! Almost the whole menu was GF. Fried Fish, Shrimp, and Chicken were GF. I had a Shrimp bowl make-your-own. It was simply delicious and very tasty. I had the Chips and Pico which was good. The chips were very tender and the pico was not too spicy. The manager Charlie was so sweet and accommodating. He made sure to help me get what was gf. He even showed me the ingredients menu. I would go here again and again!!! I’m sad they don’t have California Tortilla near me.
