Really, I can't complain about the restaurant because the server was knowledgeable and very transparent. She mentioned to us upfront once I indicated my girlfriend had Celiac disease that they do NOT serve and will NOT serve celiac because their kitchen is too prone to cross- contamination since it is small and they share too many surfaces. I better appreciate honesty and transparency than being misled and told we have gluten free, but it's likely cross-contaminated with something else since all surfaces are shared.

I was a little worried to be honest. But I had great food, service and no problems. Drinks were good too!

Not celiac safe. Sat down here because of reviews. Was told nothing here is safe for me. Everything has cross contamination.

I enjoyed 5 different tacos and loved them all. The Al Pastor with pineapple salsa was my favorite. Menu was clearly marked with GF options and staff was knowledgeable. Get there early, the line can go around the corner.
