    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.

    Really cool place. We had brunch on Sunday. Most things on the menu are gluten free and the rest could be made gluten free. Really enjoyed the food.

    Knowledgable waiter but menu wasn't marked with any notion of gf. Great tacos and margaritas
