Manager was very careful. Changed gloves and used separate utensils. Chips fried in canola oil in a dedicated fryer. Excellent nachos, no reaction. Highly recommend.

The staff made my meal and I was about to pay for it, when Patrick the manager asked me if I was gluten free because of allergies. When I told him yes, he threw the meal away because his staff did not change their gloves. He then said he would make my meal personally to make sure it was done right. He changed his gloves and got out fresh utensils to keep my food from being cross contaminated.

The staff was great. I expected them to just change their gloves. They have a whole procedure which includes fresh clean utensils, a plate straight out of the package and the best part was they seemed very happy to do it.

On a road trip with three dogs, super accommodating of gluten allergy, put on new gloves, got new utensils and gave me an allergen menu. Very friendly staff, great for dogs for outside seating. Perfect road tip stop. Out door seating for dogs is in shade at 6 p.m

If you love nachos like me this is the place for you. They also have burrito bowls and will have a list of gluten free foods to choose from. Just make sure they change gloves and you're golden.

Very friendly. Changed gloves and used fresh utensils. They confirmed everything is safe except the beef. I had a carnitas bowl.

5/16/22 Update. Major thanks to Reed who updated me on the menu. He confirmed everything is GF except the beef - *but* pointed out that the beef and chicken are cooked on the same grill. He also said stay away from the potatoes and bbq sauce. So helpful!

They used to have gf tortillas but recently got rid of them, unfortunately. However, their bowls are awesome! And they used dedicated scoops for each ingredient, unlike chipotle, where I’m always concerned about cross contamination.

Went to This Freebirds on a Saturday and when we mentioned I had celiac Alex immediately went and grabbed (without asking) a allergen menu and changed his gloves. He made my meal the entire time and never made me feel bad at all. He knew immediately what celiac was and I haven’t been this impressed at celiac knowledge in awhile. Food was great and we will definitely be back.

The new Siete grain free wrap is amazing. I was able to safely have my first burrito in nearly 10 years. More filling and better flavor than other options at similar food places.
