Watched the employee ask the guy In front of me if he wanted corn as preference or allergy. My turn.. I state allergy and she immediately washes her hands and regloves. I wouldn't get enchiladas as the ladles all touch flour tortillas, but got a salad with no tortilla. I wasn't confident about the corn tortillas as I watched her touch them from the previous order after touching flour tortilla. I asked about chips and queso... said they were GF. She grabbed them from the same bin as ones that had probably been grabbed with gluten gloves. She was trying to push my order down as the only one to touch it and even said to the other worker it was gluten free but he touched it anyway. I think they try really hard and I appreciate effort but there were a lot of failures and to me it's just not worth it for a salad.

My favorite restaurant of all time. Lots of options. Not super spicy, VERY delicious, SUPER good with cross contamination. They wash their hands and change their gloves before making your meal.

I told them I had a gluten allergy, they immediately changed gloves and were accommodating. I got the sweet pork salad with cilantro lime vinegarette and it was delicious!

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.

The staff are all so great, understanding and friendly! They make sure to do things safe and not let cross contamination. There’s a Costa in the town I live in but I always come to this one instead!

They take great care in handling their food. They do not have gluten-free flour tortillas but they do have gluten-free corn tortillas. They'll make almost any dish with the corn tortillas.

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 asked the server if the chips were GF and he assured me everyone on the line is GF with the exception of the flour tortillas. He made sure to let me know he was washing his hands and changing gloves before he assisted me with my order. He also made sure to use the bottom drawer of chips that are not touched unless new gloves have been put on to prevent cross contact. Highly recommend for any GF friends!

To follow up, within an hour of eating here I had stomach pain, bloating, and digestive issues. I’m hoping it wasn’t gluten related as the staff was so great about trying to accommodate. I suspect it was an accidental cross contamination though.
