Almost everything can be made gluten free, and they distinguish the corn tortillas as gluten free or not, depending on if they heat them on the same surface as the flour tortillas. Easy, good value and delicious.

Reliable location. Tastes fresh as always, not the most explosive flavor but it is nice and light for a change. Definitely enjoy the chicken the most and love their queso.

It was all just ok.

The best part was that they write Gluten Free on the ticket so I know that the kitchen knows not to cross contaminate. I wish everywhere would do this!

Chips were hard and tasted stale. No salt.

Tomatillo salsa was strangely creamy.

Guac was a strange texture and a bit bland.

Corn tortillas were thick and chewy- in a bad way.

Barbacoa is better at Chipotle.

Carnitas were bland.

My friend got the chicken as said it was the best meat in his three tacos.

A good fast food option, qualitatively better than chipotle with roughly equivalent quantity. They have corn tortillas and bowls as GF options, and are generally sensitive to the gluten free diet; largely by default because of the type of food they serve. The guacamole is good and the salsa bar is worth checking out as well. I recommend take out because it can get pretty loud and hectic in the store at times. Good atmosphere on par with similarly priced burrito/taco shops like Chipotle and Moe's.

tl;dr - Good food, fair prices, good quality, not dedicated gluten free, would visit again.

Food is still good but the lady making our food stuck her hand right in the cheese and lettuce. Maybe she only did it with the gluten free. I can't be sure. My kids aren't as sensitive as me but yesterday I had a teenie stomach ache and we ate there also. So ifs def worth eating just as always watch your food.

Excellent! If you like tacos you will love this place. My kids loved it too! You just let them know you need gluten free and they give you a corn tortillas instead. Delish! The pico de gallo is yum! We got the barbacoa ( shredded beef). Definitely recommend!

We did catering here, and the manager explained they fry the churros (which have gluten) separately from the chips. I’ll update if any bad aftereffects.

Very obvious cross contamination. I am extremely surprised by the current rating. Corn tortillas are dipped in shared oil and placed on same grille. Attempted to explain and staff did not understand. Not safe for celiac; ok for lifestyle people but not for true gluten sensitive folks

Stopped here while between tourist sites because of good reviews on here. It was a crazy busy lunch time but guy taking our order made sure to go back and mark our ticket for cc protocols. However, as person after person got their food and we didn’t, it was clear our order got bumped bc of the volume and the need to change gloves and clean- we finally had to ask and they had to go find our order to start making it. Food was good, safe, but going at a busy time was a problem.
