The waitress gave us the speech about how they are not responsible for cross contamination. If you look at the menu, the gluten free items are marked for you, but the menu doesn’t have that information on it. They said they had a dedicated fryer for the chips, so my daughter was able to eat those without getting sick. She ordered the chicken tacos along with rice and beans. She did not get sick. The food was incredible! They make their own corn tortillas. I’ve never tasted fresh corn tortillas and they were pretty amazing.

We ate here twice for dinner while traveling for work. The waiter the first time was very knowledgeable and helpful in showing me the safe options and what things were a risk for CC. The chips are done in a shared fryer so they gave me sliced crudités to have with the guacamole. Most of the tacos are safe. The waitress the 2nd time was a lot less informed but went into the kitchen to talk with the chef to confirm all of the food would be safe to enjoy and was clear about calling out the food allergy preparation when bringing the plates to the table

The waitress went to check if my food was cross contaminated without me having to ask since I told her I was gluten free. Incredible. The food also tasted great

They showed a gluten free menu online but didn’t have one in the restaurant when I asked. I had the grilled fish tacos and watermelon salad. Both were good. Chips are fried in a shared fryer but the waitress said they are fried first thing in the morning before gluten containing items go in. She didn’t specifically say they changed the oil every morning. I took a chance and ate a few and didn’t get sick. I am very sensitive. I’d say ask a lot of questions before eating the chips.

This place is not celiac gluten free safe. Chips fried in same fryer as gluten containing items, as are the tortillas used for tacos and enchiladas. They worked with me for another option that works, thankfully, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I don’t know if they changed their process since the last reviews, but was very disappointed to find that the chips were not gluten free.

Just before placing my order I let our server know that I have CD. She asked if I was sensitive to cross contact (I am), and proceeded to tell me all the things on the menu that could be made gluten free (not many options). She double checked with the kitchen to make sure the tortillas where not fried in a shared fryer, and they weren’t so I was able to enjoy their chips, salsa, and guacamole.

The waitress was knowledgeable about cross contamination. Unfortunately I was told that the chips/nachos are not GF due to shared oil. But the tacos were amazing!! Happy hour deals are great.

Modifications for tacos available with corn tortillas. Staff somewhat knowledgeable and asked about cross contamination. Tortilla chips not safe because of shared oil.
