    Excellent food and service. I had a burrito bowl with chicken, rice, beans, lettuce, guacamole, salsa and sour cream. Separate fryer for chips which was a bonus. I would definitely recommend this place!

    Dedicated GF fryer for chips and various entree items. Entire menu is GF except two or three items. Recommended.

    GO HERE! We started with bloody mary's. They make their own mix, so it's safe! They also have a dedicated fryer so I was able to have fried calamari tacos and fried fish tacos. They were FANTASTIC!

    The important part: seems celiac safe. They do have a dedicated fryer for the chips as of July 2018. I didn’t get sick at all. Servers were really helpful and friendly. But the nachos... what. The cheese is so weird and watery it pools at the bottom of the plate and leaves the chips with nothing on them. With limited safe places, I’ll go back, but wouldn’t if there were other good options.

    The tacos are good, but the chips, fries, and fish are all fried with the churros and not gluten free. (The waiter said celiacs eat the chips with no effect because it's a trace amount, but I wasn't willing to risk it.) It's also a little pricey for what you get.

    Great food and almost everything on the menu is gluten free! Previous reviews stated the fryer was not GF - I'm happy to report that they no longer make churros, so they do have a dedicated fryer now! I was told that only the burritos and one other thing on the menu contained gluten. The corn tortillas and chips are homemade, and they use lots of local ingredients and interesting combinations. So good!

    Food was ok, but no GF salsa or chips so not much there to go for.

    Chips are made in the same fryer as the churros so not celiac friendly but I didn't get sick. They say they change their oil often. Tacos are good, though pricey.

    Delicious and fresh farm-to-table style tacos. Some innovative combos and definitely vegetarian friendly and celiac friendly. Important to note: fryolator is NOT gluten free. Therefore tortilla chips and sweet potato dishes are off limits. But this leaves plenty of options and staff was kind and accommodating about substituting plain corn tortillas instead of chips with guac/salsa combo.
