    UPDATE: I think I got glutenized here. Chips and salsa were "gluten free" but not celiac safe because there was only one fryer, where they fry flour tortillas, the chips and any fried corn tortilla. So nothing fried is celiac safe. The waiter was nice and able to recommend a few options from the menu and told me what not to order to not risk contamination with other options. The food was tasty but more expensive than the other review suggests.

    Wow. This place is great. I liked it in my Pre-Celiac days, love it now. Most Mexican food is gluten free but often language and cross-contamination are issues. No problem here. The waiter pointed out the few things I could not order. He supplied the traditional queso dia on a corn tortilla (ask in case) and told me that the chips and salsa were gluten free. The rest of my meal, Taco, Enchilada, Rice and Beans, were served quickly and deliciously. The bill was less than $10. The food, price, service and ambiance (this place is beautiful) were way better than Chipolte. Upon my asking, remaining chips and salsa were packed for later enjoyment. Best of all, I did not get sick!
