Update: like others have said, things have changed and there's cross contamination issues and mislabeling. Bummed because I loved this place but don't feel safe with most of their menu now.

Original review We got take out and it was delicious! They are not dedicated GF but have a dedicated fryer, make GF chips to order and label their menu well (vegan options too). If you can do dairy, get the queso! I have celiac and had no issues. Loved the veggie and the carnitas tacos.

Yes our fryer is 100% GF but we fry gluten in it. Yes, all the meat is GF! We marinate the barbacoa in beer, if that matters?

The clincher, though, was when my meal, which was marked to pan fry and treat with allergy precautions, was put on the fryer instead. We left, they clearly aren't Celiac safe. Cannot recommend to anyone with Celiac.

I saw the previous few reviews, plus stellar reviews on Yelp so we tried them out. I was not impressed. While they do have things on their menu marked GF, the physical menu was different from the online menu as to what items were GF. They no longer have a dedicated fryer so the chips are subject to cross contact. The only thing I felt comfortable ordering was the bowl and I tried it with the beef asada. The bowl was lovely looking but the beef was so dry. Like beef jerky dry. It didn’t taste good. The server didn’t write any of our order down. I applaud her skills but that always makes me so nervous with multiple food allergies in our family. On top of that, the order for my daughters quesadilla never got put in (please just write it down?!) so she was getting hangry watching us get our food (she’s 4). Later that evening I had a mild reaction so I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

We used the online ordering, trying to cross reference the menu, which was clearly marked. They called me up to check on some of the options, mentioning that there was beer in one of their sauces (which I didn't see but it did say) and to explain that they were temporarily sharing the fryer with gluten ingredients - which they substituted on the spot for both items. He also mentioned when we picked it up that they wanted to restore a dedicated GF fryer, so call ahead and it might be an option in the future.

The tacos were really good - amazing corn tortillas, much thicker than most and were able to hold together for 4/6 tacos - street corn tortillas generally crumble immediately. Overall, some of the best tacos I've had in the PNW.

Helpful staff, tasty ingredients, would definitely go again.
