    Very good. Authentic. Cross contamination may be an issue with them handling wheat and flour tortillas. Got the a la carte tacos. Ground chuck and chicken.

    I'm sorry to say I was glutened here. The food was delicious and although the waitress was not knowledgeable about gluten, she went out of her way to check with the chef on a couple of things. That said, this was the only meal I had that day (was otherwise just using protein and fruit bars) and I had significant symptoms the following day. They said they would take special precautions to make sure they prepared my corn tortilla for the burrito on a separate surface but it is an open kitchen. I went on a weekend evening and the tables were full so perhaps that's why.

    Great staff, manager was knowledgeable, staff not as knowledgeable but very willing to work to avoid cross contamination. Be specific as shared cooking surfaces are used but they will use separate pans etc for you. I.E don't assume gf items on menu are safe for celiacs without modification. No fryer in facility. Food was good but only giving it 4 stars as I am from CA and particular about Mexican food

    They make gluten free food... the prices are an absolute turn off however. charging individually for every single item in a taco. Rice? $1.75 Lettuce .50 sour cream? $1.00

    I can't speak highly enough about this place. The owner is so kind, and personable. I am a very sensitive celiac and have eaten here several times. The stuffed avocado is incredible, and one of the best meals I've had. The corn tortillas are unreal.

    Nice selection of gluten free items on the menu. The waiter was also really good with all my food sensitivity issues and was conscientious about making sure I don't get slipped any dairy or eggs. Nice place. I would go back.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. They had no problem using separate cooking items to prepare food for my daughter, who is a celiac. It was delicious!
