We really enjoyed our meal here. We had fajitas, tacos and margaritas. It was so good. They served my tacos in lettuce which was tasty.

There's 4 tacos on the menu that cannot be done gluten free due to marinades/breading but tons of options! Chips and corn tortilla shell is fried in a dedicated fryer! You have to specify that you want corn tortillas for your tacos as they usually come on a flour corn mixed tortilla. Food is amazing! Staff is super friendly. Aside from a couple menu options everything can pretty much be prepared gluten free!

Celiac safe but didn’t have many options when it came to a meal. So we just settled for the tacos :)

Chips & margs were great!! I got the fajitas and it was a LOT of meat & veggies which was great, but it was pretty spicy. It would’ve been fine if there had been sour cream to tame it, but there was only a little guacamole & cheese. Definitely not enough for the amount of food there was. But really great service and food! I probably should’ve gotten the tacos with corn tortillas which would have been a perfect amount of food.

Bartender who took my order was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I was nervous initially eating here but my confidence grew after our conversation!

Tacos were amazing!! So many options as a celiac- I had the veggie and chicken tacos which were delicious.

Knowledgeable staff! Grateful they spent the time to talk with me.

This restaurant wins the prize for knowledge and how cautious its staff are about safe food for people with Celiac Disease (& I suspect those with other allergies too). Eat here and feel good. The manager, waitress, chef, and everyone serving us worked extra-hard to make sure they got things right. There is a dedicated fryer for chips and taco salad tortilla. Specify corn tortillas for tacos. Request corn tortillas be grilled in a separate pan.

The other thing that was great about this place other than being able to eat the food is that no one made me feel like I was being annoying which is how I frequently feel when visiting most restaurants. Five stars. We’ll be back!
