Chips are not gluten free - there is only one frier - but they sautéed my tacos in a separate pan. The meats were were seasoned and the cocktails delicious. Definitely NOT an all-GF menu as prior reviewers reported.

No longer offering GF churros, and chips and empanadas are fried with the normal churros. Tacos seem to be only Celiac safe option now.

Changed owners & food not as good. Ingredients seemed lower quality and menu was less exciting to me. But, still GF and I felt fine after eating here!

Entire menu is GF! I love not having to worry about cross-contamination. Chips & guac and Carnitas tacos were delicious. The margaritas were fantastic, too!

Not a completely dedicated gf kitchen, but most items are gluten free and staff is knowledgeable so just let them know. Food and drinks are great.

Staff is very knowledgeable and completely understood my questions about gluten and kitchen areas. All food is GF except one item (hot dog buns), and even then those are available during a short window of time and not made/heated on a shared space, as well as stores separately. I used my Nima sensor for everything and it all came back GF. Drinks & food were all delicious! Especially loved the classic mezcal marg & elote tostada.

Everything is gluten free!!!! The owner is Angelo Sosa from top chef. The food is very flavorful and unique- we ordered 5 items recommended by the server and everything was so yummy!!! The only thing is that the portions are small, and food is expensive, so go there expecting that. But it’s a fun night out. Did I mention the GLUTEN FREE CHURROS?! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
