I finally found an amazing taco place! They don’t have a full gluten free menu, but all tacos except for the birria are gluten free. They confirmed the birria are made with beer, so avoid! They did say everything is made on the same grill but also confirmed it’s kept separate for allergies. They marked my order as celiac - and told me which salsa to avoid as one wasn’t gluten free. We tried the tacos and nachos and both were seriously so good.

This restaurant was highly rated so I decided to try it out. The food was good and almost everything was gluten free. The staff was knowledgeable and told me certain dishes to avoid that contained gluten. They also marked my order to be gluten free.

You could watch the kitchen prepare the food, and one thing that made me nervous was that everything goes on the same grill. Although most items are GF, if someone requested a wheat tortilla it would go on the same grill without cleaning in between.

I went with the nachos to avoid the grill, so far no symptoms.

Wonderful helpful staff to guide you with what is GF. The fryer is shared with the wheat containing items so we couldn’t have anything Birra style (where the corn tortilla is crisped) but everything else (tacos, nachos and Mulitas were GF.) ! The nachos are so delicious as were the Mulitas! Sooo good and the prices were incredibly reasonable!

Had the al pastor taco, the carne asada taco and the veggie taco. Had a few bites of the al pastor nachos. Would skip the veggie taco next time but nothing made me sick! Server was knowledgeable. Marked the ticket so the kitchen would change out gloves, etc. Advised not getting the birria not because there is wheat in it but because the cross contamination chance with the proximity to the flour tortilla. Said plenty of people have had it and not been sick but if I wanted to be extra careful avoid the birria. Great experience. Will come back. Allowed dogs inside and out too!

All the tacos come on corn tortillas and GF is not an issue. They have non- beer drink options besides sodas as well; margaritas and wine. The food was delicious.

Recently diagnosed with Celiac. Out of the 4 different restaurants I’ve tried, this is the only one I felt confident with and had no symptoms afterward.

Tacos were AMAZING, a GF hard kombucha, and the staff was familiar with Celiac, cross contamination concerns, and made me feel extremely comfortable with eating here. Def recommend!

Fantastic tacos! There is no GF menu, but nearly everything on their menu is naturally GF, and nothing with gluten ever goes in their fryer. Still, the server promised that they woild prepare our food on a clean surface and change their gloves. Their pollo and carne asada tacos are delicous. My daughter is extremely sensitive to cross contamination, and had no issues.

Gluten free chips in a dedicated fryer!

I think everything was GF except for the birria, consommé, and the habanero salsa. Easy to eat dairy free too.

Fantastic flavors. Place is a little odd in that you walk in and order then sit down, but there werent signs telling you to do this. The nachos and AL Pastor taco were SO good!! The nachos got a little soggy at the bottom, but started out crispy delicious... likely because of the beans. Highly recommend!

Gluten free here is the rule, not the exception. If you want gluten, you have to order a flour tortilla intentionally. We came here multiple times and never had any stomach issues. My celiac daughter enjoyed the nachos and the rest of us liked the tacos and taco bowl. Hostess was kind and gluten intolerant herself, so she was able to speak to the offerings. I also really like that when you order online, you can add notes about your food preferences/needs.

Everything on the menu is gluten free. The cashier knew the difference between celiac and gluten intolerant. He recommended a few gluten free beverage options and we ordered the margarita…very refreshing. We ordered carne asada nachos, and the birria tacos and pollo asado tacos. Everything was very flavorful and I didn’t have any reaction. Great place with outdoor seating. Highly recommend!
