Man working there would not answer my questions about the gluten free pizza options. He just kept saying that they had gluten free pizza but would not sell one to me if it was ‘health reasons’. When I tried to ask where it was made- he just kept telling me he would not sell me a pizza. He was rude and dismissive. Whole experience left me frustrated.

We felt like intruders from the beginning. We brought our own gluten free tortilla chips thanks to a helpful review on this site and thank goodness we did. The chef told us their chips were gluten free but then we learned from our server that their chips were deep fried in the same fryer as everything else. Which of course includes flour. But luckily we were unsure enough to just give our little one the gluten free chips we brought. Then our server was rude and impatient when we tried to order for our son. It was not a good experience and we would not recommend this restaurant whether you have a loved one with celiac or not.

Can make anything with soft corn tortillas- carnitas tacos were great. Group like salads and fajitas

This place is a dive, but the salsa alone is worth it! The staff was GF knowledgable and advised the enchilada sauce is made with corn starch and not flour. We had tacos and enchiladas, along with yellow rice and black beans. The hard corn shells were more like the Ortega ones you can buy in a store, but in all the food was delicious and we'd definitely visit again. I give it 3 stars only because the atmosphere is quirky; the ceiling and walls are covered in dollar bills and the lighting is dismal. But 4 stars for the food!

Margaritas are gluten free (we read every ingredient; seemed ok!). They offer gluten free soft corn taco shells. Rice and beans were also said to be gluten free. I have celiac and didn't get sick. Food was tasty (although I had to bring my own gf tortilla chips to go with their yummy salsa)
