    I came here because of the other reviews I had read and they were all accurate. The moment I said "gluten free" the waiter knew exactly what I needed to order and avoid. I was also impressed because he knew the difference between people who voluntarily choose to eat gluten free and those who have celiac. I don't think I've ever been to a restaurant where the server was so knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free from the moment you mentioned it. The food was DELICIOUS!!! My group shared a grilled corn on the cob as an appetizer and I had the chicken tacos as m y entree. The best part was I felt great afterwards--no mistakes or cross contamination. I would recommend this to anyone with celiac looking for a good meal at a fair price.

    Awesome tacos and drinks and they are celiac safe. They explained how they organize ingredients so that they minimize cross contamination.

    Very good food. I had the Pork dish that comes with sweet potatoes, and a bunch of other stuff. Loved it! I normally would take off a star for not having gluten free items labeled or a separate menu, but it was so good I couldn't. My server was very in tune with celiac and recommended the avocado and veggies rather than chips and salsa. Highly recommend this place!

    Great food, great Celiac options. A lot of their menu is naturally gluten free, so they don't actually tell you what is and isn't on the menu. The moment I told the waiter I have Celiac's he was instantly giving me suggestions. This included suggesting he bring me soft corn tortillas because the corn chips were fried in the same oil as some flour tortillas and he knew cross contamination would be a problem. I had the Pork and Steak Tacos with corn tortillas and they were delicious. Pork was my favorite. I felt comfortable as the waiter discussed how they would contain my food and he knew what he was talking about.. Great option!
