Server was more than happy to accommodate and made sure to ask questions if they were unsure. Decent food for what it is. Almost the entire menu (except flour tortillas and desserts) were gluten free!

I almost cried when our taco-maker asked if my son’s request for corn tortillas was a preference or an allergy. When she found out he has celiac disease, she washed her hands, changed her gloves and cooked his tacos on foil on the grill to avoid cross contamination. Wish they had one of these in Washington State! Thank you for a wonderful meal!!!

Always good, kinda fast food, like Chipotle. Tell them you're GF and they'll change their gloves before preparing your food. These are the only GF burritos I have access to, and you can get them "smothered" for free. All the meats, sauces, dressings, soups are GF. Good, fresh, fast, cheap. This location has a drive through for if you call ahead.

Notes


From their allergen list: We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, and proteins. Natural glutens remain only in our flour and wheat tortillas and in two desserts--tres leches and key lime pie. This means that we offer "oceans of gluten-free options" in our menu. All of these items are gluten-free: all enchiladas, all tacos, all salads (without the flour or wheat tortilla), all nachos, and our chicken tortilla so up...which uses corn strips.

An extra star because the food is always delicious, but i am paying for it today. The things I noticed were: The first person to help me, changed her gloves. The scooping utensils were the same as the ones used for burritos and everything else, with no cleaning in between. Nobody announced the gluten allergy to anyone else, and after my bowl went through the toaster, the employee grabbed it without letting me finish my sentence about having celiac, and him needing new gloves at a minimum. This is not exactly his fault as he didn’t know, and he did change his gloves after. (I know I can ask to have it remade but it was dinner and I didn’t want to be that guy. I know. I am still new to this and trying to find my voice to speak up for the way my food is prepared.) My food was then placed on the same tray as all of the other orders from my group. The cashier had kept her gloves on while processing the order and putting cups on the tray as well.

I don’t know why I thought this was a safe choice, it’s a cross contamination playground. You’re better off playing cafe Rio in your own kitchen.

All of their salsas, rice, beans snd meats are GF. They have corn tortillas and without having to ask they warmed it on foil on the grill so as not to use the same surface that gluten was cooked on. The person helping us willingly changed his gloves and stayed with our gluten free meal through the line so he didn’t cross contaminate. They were very accommodating and have made efforts to create a lot of GF options. GF chips too!
