Amazing restaurant with well-educated staff on celiac safety. Dedicated fryer for all corn chips and corn tortillas. Fresh and extensive menu. My son enjoyed an incredible meal safe from cross contamination and no issues. Highly recommended!

Black bean tacos were literally ice cold, unseasoned black beans plopped on a corn tortilla. Like, so cold my teeth hurt biting into them. I was too surprised to be annoyed, it was hilarious. My family and I laughed so hard we were tearing up. Imagined someone taking an open can of beans out of the fridge and plopping them on a tortilla. Was good for a giggle and wasting some cash, but I won’t be back. The staff didn’t seem to know what was going on but were friendly which I appreciate. I didn’t get sick so there’s that.

Staff was knowledgeable about gluten free offerings. Traditional Mexican options like tacos and enchiladas. Nothing special. Not a lot of flavor.

Food was safe but I must have been spoiled by by the amazing place we frequent in our town because I found the food to be extremely bland. Chips were stale, guacamole was decent, shredded chicken street tacos were all tortillas and little filling. They were actually so bland I only ate 1 1/2. It's hard to find safe places so if we were local we'd try again but we are only in town for the weekend so our one and only visit was really disappointing.

They no longer have a dedicated frier (waitress said that the oil they use now is not safe), so be aware of that and ask everytime. The lack of a safe frier does cut down what is safe for those with celiac disease. Other than that, good food.

This will be my go to place to eat when I am craving Mexican food! Manager & servers are extremely knowledgeable about gluten free & Celiac issues. Dedicated fryer, eat all the chips & salsa you want! I got the chicken fajitas with corn tortillas and it was delicious. I am a Celiac & extremely sensitive, did not get sick one bit!

Safe chips, queso and guac is the real reason to go. Entrees were totally safe and separate this is more of a quantity over quality place. Fun ambience and was affordable and the staff was great.
