I went to this restaurant after reading all the wonderful reviews. One of the owners (Jason) waited on our table and was able to answer my questions about items on the menu as well as identifying what was safe for me. They grilled the fish for my street taco instead of breading and frying it. I was able to get multiple items from the menu each was delicious and gluten free! I will DEFINITELY be going back!

The food was amazing. Almost everything can be made GF. The fried cauliflower bites were incredible. The crunchy shrimp tacos and the Cajun queso with crawfish were delicious. I would highly recommend this for celiac.

Fantasic! The chef has evolved the menu so almost everything can be done gluten free. We could’ve just had the homemade (designated fryer safe) chips, guacamole, and salsa, but the tacos and corn were phenomenal. Had the best margarita I’ve tried. We were too full for dessert, but there was a gf tres Leches on the menu. I’m a sensitive celiac and didn’t have any reaction. Cute atmosphere, too- highly recommend!

The staff was knowledgeable about their gluten free items and friendly. The rare dedicated gluten free fryer makes nearly the entire menu celiac friendly, with very low risk of cross-contamination. Excellent house-made hot sauce and fresh salsas.

This place is amazing. The staff was extremely accommodating and spoke to me at length about all the modification they could do so that I would be able to eat. I got the cauliflower taco and the black bean and sweet potato taco and both were amazing. The staff was just extremely wonderful, and the resturant is super cute, clean, and classy. The tequila was gluten free as well. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely go there again.

The owners and chef are very aware of gluten, and their gluten free menu is extensive. The corn tortillas are fresh and a special treat for gf tacos. Appetizers, soups, salads, tacos, desserts and sides. Chicken is optional in their otherwise vegan (without the sour cream and cheese toppings) tortilla soup. Cant recommend the cauliflower and pork tacos enough. Try it all!
