Had a great experience here on vacation. The staff told us they fry GF chips each morning. Staff was great to get a GF menu and the server delivered the food telling me it was GF.

We just ate here again April 2019. Fabulous food. Separate GF menu. My daughter ordered the pork tacos. She loved them and was not sick afterwards. Photo attached. She said she liked the beans too. Two years ago: Delicious Mexican food. Outstanding!! My daughter has celiac and is highly sensitive to gluten. We've eaten here twice and she has been fine both times. They have a separate GF menu and they brought her her own basket of chips and salsa for a starter. Great GF selection. Our #1 choice when traveling to San Diego.

Surprised by the wait at 4:00pm on a Sunday. We were served fresh chips from a separate fryer . Server was very understand accommodating. I have a picky 10 year old that wanted nachos supreme without everything (just cheese and sour cream). The server brought my daughter cheese and sour cream to put on her chips. They also have a separate gf menu. Very family friendly!

Asked the hostess for a GF menu and they immediately asked if I needed GF chips as we sat down and then brought me my own chips and salsa (Nima approved). I got the grilled fish tacos with black beans. Food was awesome, service was awesome, and I finally got to eat out like a normal person.

Good gluten free menu and the food tastes great! I haven’t had Mexican food in years! Celiac safe, ate here twice this week.

Separate g-free menu always gives me confidence a place knows what it means. Server seemed to know the importance of the g-free requests, eg brought corn chips instead of regular tortilla chips without being asked. Great authentic Mexican food, HUGE portions! And a gorgeous place with lovely atmosphere. So happy to find it, we will be making it a family favourite.

Called ahead and spoke w manager; entire staff paid great attention to preparing meal. GF menu has lots of options. No dedicated fryer so bring own chips. Overall great meal and experience.

The staff were very accommodating when they knew I had a corn and celiac allergy. We found this place via the Find Me Gluten app. So thank you to those that provided the recommendation. The chef customized my meal to ensure that all allergies were avoided.

Both my daughter and I are gluten intolerant. We were thrilled with this find. There is a separate gluten free menu and separate gluten free chips. The service is outstanding. They really work as a team to make sure you are taken care of. We ate here two days in a row on our vacation and we did not get sick either time. We had the gluten free tamales, the seafood tacos, and the mexican salad. All delicious. We also had a dessert option, the flan. It was wonderful too. The atmosphere is great. I highly recommend.

Just left. So good!!!! Make sure to ask for the gluten free tortilla chips for the separate, gluten free menu! Had the ceviche and fish tacos. So freakin happy right now! The house margarita aren't worth it, go with something a little more expensive or just order your tequila straight up ;)

This place was amazing! Good options on the gluten free menu, they made sure I had gluten free chips. They made sure to say my food was gluten free when they brought it. I've eaten here twice and did not get sick which is huge for me. I will be eating here a lot in the future.

I was told that march of 2016 they stated adding flour to all sauces so no enchilada options. What I had had good flavor but I couldn't cut the chicken it was so tough. We've eaten here every time we come to San Diego so I was very disappointed.

Authentic Mexican food, it is so colorful with a wonderful ambiance, mariachi band and great customer service! Very knowledgeable about Celiac, gluten free and cross contamination. I had shrimp cocktail and sour cream enchiladas which was amazing! Would definitely return.

went in, spoke to host -- sure they have a Gf menu, but no one could answer any of my basic questions about prep, did not make me feel confident or comfortable to eat as a celiac. very crowded and busy--felt risk was too high. did not stay. :(

Do not eat here! My husband has celiac, and they did do a good job on cross contamination. I don't have celiac, but I got food poisoning from here! It ruined my last 2 days of vacation. Stay away!

Excellent gluten free menu because it has many options! Delicious food! Servers are knowledgable about gluten free. Make sure you ask for the gluten free chips (fried in separate oil). Didn't get sick or have any symptoms. Highly recommended.

We were seated quickly, but food was slow because it was so busy. Very friendly and accommodating, but food lacked flavor. Over cooked tortillas. Nice size gluten free menu.

Service was horrible. Waitress seemed like ordering gluten-free was an inconvenience. Fajitas were so-so.

Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. DON'T eat the chips right away. Make sure you get the GF ones first. Quality and taste comparable to Macayo's. Not the best Mexican ever but good and safe. Giant portions.

Delicious GF food! Ask for GF menu upon arrival. Also request GF corn chips & they'll bring out separate basket. The beef fajitas were awesome! Large portions so plenty to share and/or have for leftovers.

The wait staff is always amazingly patient and knowledgeable. I am a GF vegetarian and never have had a problem. Just let them know you are GF and they will let you know what needs to be substituted. Love the people, the food and the atmosphere!
