    Denotes on menu which items CONTAIN gluten. I've eaten here several times and never had a reaction (am very sensitive Celiac). Tacos are fantastic. Wish I had s place like this back home. We eat here every time we are in Portland.

    LOVE this place! there are a lot of GF options and the atmosphere is fantastic! My "go to" dish is the pescado (fish) bowl....so tasty and filling. I've had numerous other options, and they are all very good...but most of us will admit that we usually order specific things at certain places...we ARE creatures of habit after all! NOTE: I do NOT eat the corn chips, as they are prepared in shared oil. I've tried several times and get sick every time. The margaritas and mojitos are delicious. :-)

    The food is good, and reasonably priced. They have the menu set up with items that DO contain gluten marked. I've had both good and not so good reactions to the food, however. Depending on sensitivity, be cautious. I ordered something that was gluten free on the menu, but didn't specify with my server that I needed gluten free, I have also eaten there since with no problem. Overall, the staff is friendly, the drinks are strong and the food is a good, quicker option (depending on how busy they are, seating is limited). They do close *early, at 9:00, so they aren't a late night option.
