Very accommodating for gluten-free for Celiac. Family style, but brought me my own dish with corn tortillas, and pointed out what else was GF at the table. Try the guacamole!!

They could not guarantee that the chips were gluten free. Ended up having chicken tacos on corn tortillas & they were delicious. Would come back!

My girlfriend and I got the nachos, and they were amazing! Best nachos I’ve had in Philly. The server was able to accommodate GF with no problems, and was knowledgeable about gluten. We also had a mojito (amazing!), tequila flight (great!), and a sangria (just ok).

Fryer is cross contaminated so the chips are not safe. “Tacos for 2” were delicious— came out on a skillet platter of their own. Staff seemed knowledgeable. I didn’t get sick. Would definitely go again!

They have a GF menu. Ordered the chicken tacos which were good. Our waitress wasn't too knowledgeable on how the kitchen handled the GF items which made me a little concerned. The salsa wasn't good - a bowl of tomato sauce, but the green tomatoe salsa delicious.

Great place! They fry their tortilla chips with new oil first thing every morning so they’re celiac friendly, then they can accommodate most items on the menu to be gf. The waitress was very knowledgeable. If it wasn’t so expensive I’d go there ALL the time, but we may start going just for guac & margs more regularly because their guacamole & tortilla chips are amazing.

Terrific experience. The waiter knew what was not gf on the menu and also all the modifications that could be made to accommodate. We ended up having a ‘custom’ beef quesadilla on corn tortillas. And of course their guacamole. Delicious and very comfortable and safe.

Lots of GF options on the menu and the staff was knowledgeable. The food and service were great. The only downside was how noisy it was.
