This was one of our favorite restaurants before my daughter was diagnosed with celiac and we still eat here safely regularly. The chips are safe, and many of the tacos can be made with corn tortillas. We usually inform our server that she has a gluten allergy and the kitchen takes precautions to prevent cross-contamination. While some items have changed over the years, we still find this a solid dinner option with lots of outdoor seating. I like the margaritas and the nachos.

I asked about the tortilla chips and the head chef told me they were gluten free- made from maiz and rice flour/ and fried in a fryer just for the chips. I am celiac so I waited til the next day to write a review (: I ordered the grilled fish tacos/ subbed on corn flour tortillas. I asked the chef to prepare my meal in a clean separate pan. Our server was more than accommodating but you need to go out of your way when ordering to “secure” a safe meal (: I feel fine and really enjoyed my dinner and plan on going back!

The staff was very knowledgeable but still brought out something that was not gluten free - luckily, I didn’t chow down immediately. Also, possibly the grossest tacos, nachos, beans I have ever tasted... go get ice cream afterwards across the street - much better!!!
