This place was so good! Everything is gluten free except for like 2 things! The server was very knowledgeable (apparently the owner has a food allergy) so everything is very careful! The food was great!

Almost everything is gluten free except the tortas. Staff is knowledgeable and the Shrimp Tempura uses a Rice Flour. The Chips use their own fryer. They also accommodate for many different dietary restrictions

Completely gluten free menu! Including gluten free fryer. These guys know what they’re doing. Great three dollar tacos at happy hour and as well as six dollar salsas with their homemade chips (no cross contamination!)

Wow! What a surprise. I would highly recommend for celiacs. They have a dedicated fryer and use rice flour base for their tempura. The fish and shrimp tacos were the best I've ever had. Phenomenal flavors in the food and cocktails. If you are celiac, please try this place. We were there early for dinner and were the only party dining. I'd love to see some support for their wonderful restaurant and fantastic food! It was thw highlight of my trip to NOLA!

This place is NOT 100% gluten free like another person noted, there were two menu items that the waiter indicated I couldn’t have but otherwise everything else is safe. The fryer is dedicated and GF for the chips!! Beware they do use the fryer for shrimp in case you also have a shellfish allergy.

The carne asada tacos were incredibly tasty and delicious, the meat was very fresh. The only issue is you get three street (read: appetizer size, 3 bites max) tacos for $18 so the price tag is a little heavy. I probably wouldn’t come back just because it’s a bit cost prohibitive but the menu options are excellent (they have ceviche!).

This place is amazing! The entire menu is GF. They said that Mexican food is so easy make make GF that they just decided to really lean into it. We started off with the crawfish queso, which was extraordinary! Highly recommend all the tacos, too. No one got sick, and even the gluten eaters were happy!

Everything is gluten free except the tortas.

Had the winter special vegetarian tortilla soup, it was tasty but tepid as far as the temperature it was served.

The carne asada tacos were quite good.

Everything on the menu is gluten free. I told the owner I found them from this app and he was super happy to hear that. He said they’ve been trying to offer GF options for those who can’t eat much in NOLA. A bit on the pricey end for portion sizes, but very delicious.

The best glutenfree mexican food. The menu is 99 % glutenfree. The Waiter is very helpfull. We had the best ceviche ever, crawfish, Guacomole tempura shrimp taco, roasted chicken taco, and beef taco, mexican rice and cob on the corn. Every dish were in perfect taste balance with the right amount of hot, sweet and flavour. And the best part - no gluten contamination 😀

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!

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!

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!
