Can’t recommend this place enough! Not dedicated but extremely knowledgeable about what contains gluten and cross contamination. Food is delicious and they have a very nice patio to sit out on :)

Tons of GF options to enjoy. They take gluten free seriously at this restaurant. I’m a big fan of their tacos, especially the ahi tuna. The homemade corn tortillas are delicious. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Definitely recommended!

My husband and I ate here twice during a recent visit to the Phoenix area. Our first visit I had the short rib tacos and they were very good. There is a good amount of BBQ sauce on them, which I’m usually not fond of however, these tacos were good. We also had chips (from a designated fryer) and guacamole, also very good. Our second visit was for dinner. Both my husband and I had the rib eye steak tacos at the recommendation of the server. Well, sadly I can’t recommend them. The meat was fatty and tough. We were very disappointed with our food quality. This said, the restaurant is very nice and the service was good both times. It’s a busy place and reservations are recommended.

One of my favorite lunch/dinner places! The chips and guac are to die for (fried in a separate fryer). They have a large amount of options, and everything is house made. I would definitely recommend coming here as a sensitive Celiac!

They did a fantastic job of gf on my recent visit. Loved that all their featured dishes were/could be gf! Blue crab tostada, mahi mahi with a side of mashed potatoes. It is a very crowded restaurant typically, but you can contact them ahead to get in line.

Many gf and df options. I had tuna tartar, pulled pork tacos, and a margarita (tequila, Cointreau, and lime). And it was all very good. Our server was attentive and double checked with the kitchen and bar to make sure my food and drinks were safe. At one point a bar runner brought me the wrong drink, and I had a feeling it wasn't right so I checked with our actual server and he checked, and it wasn't right, so they happily remade it for me.

Shrimp tacos were amazing. Mitchell our server was exceptional. He was knowledgeable about the menu and was happy to ask the kitchen when I had specific questions. The chips are fried in a shared fryer with gluten and the cole slaw contains white vinegar. Everything I ate was amazing and I had no adverse reactions. I highly recommend this establishment.

We went on a busy Saturday night. The waitress was very responsive. My salad was really good. My son got a burger wrap that he said was good and fries that were way too salty!! Like, not sure if that was a mistake or if that’s the way they always taste, but way too salty! Their menu has a lot of gluten free options and that was really exciting. They had no gluten free desserts except a couple that were made in a shared kitchen with wheat flour/baked goods, etc. The main issue is about three hours later, after the meal, I was feeling pretty much like I had been glutened. My son had symptoms of being glutened as well (he has celiac too). I’m guessing that we dealt with some cross contamination, particularly because it was so busy. This was a bummer because I had seen so many good reviews regarding their ability to cater to a totally gluten free diet. The waitress did let me know that they would take precautions but there’s always a risk, and it turns out she was correct. They say that in their menu too. I might try to go again but if I did I’d try to go when it was not so busy and I would talk to the chef.

Drove from Tucson to pick up family from the airport and found this place! I have celiac disease so I cannot have gluten. This place caters to being gluten free with the exception of a few items. It was an incredible dinner for my honey and I. The best filet mignon and the nachitos are DELICIOUS! 10/10 will visit again.
