Spicy pork soft tacos are delicious! This location is far better than the Vintage Park one, where food comes out cold. I just wish they’d get a dedicated fryer for chips...
Chicken and seafood are gluten free as are their chips and corn tortillas. One of my favorites!
DO NOT EAT HERE. I wish I could give this zero stars. Staff (including manager) told me that the corn tortillas and chicken were safe. Told me that the allergen button on the register would alert the kitchen to being careful. I was violently ill within 30 minutes. They clearly did not change their gloves or clean the surface like they promised they would. After calling and alerting them of my reaction, they did not act like this was a big deal at all or agree that further training was needed in the kitchen. Super disappointing because the Iowa City location was wonderfully safe. Sadness.
Specifically told them I could not have gluten because of celiac. Explained I've had seizures before from it as well. The staff acted like they understood. Got half way through my taco and realized they had given me flour after I specifically said corn. When I brought it up to them they did not seem sincerely apologetic at all.
Wonderful menu with all allergies listed on their website, even listed out yeast (my son is allergic) which is usually impossible to find out without a huge hassle. I get very sick if I eat gluten but have never been sick here and have been multiple times. They get a seal of approval from me!
There's a gluten free menu, which is awesome. There are quite a few choices. The main thing to know is that you can't have anything fried; not even the crispy tacos or tortilla strips in the salad. The fryer is shared and would be cross-contaminated, but the soft tacos are made with corn and cooked on the grill. Make sure to let them know about any allergy so they can cook on a separate part of the grill. I always tell the cashier I have celiac disease, and they let the kitchen know to make sure nothing is contaminated!
This location doesn't have a separate gluten free menu like the Bricktown location, but they have a personal fryer for just their corn tortilla chips. I would always ask to make sure there is no contamination. There is supposed to be a dedicated fryer for chips which makes the tortilla chips celiac friendly. I have yet to ask if I could fry potatoes separately, but I suppose that could be possible as well. The soft corn tortillas are to die, and I always ask for no chips on my salad!
I got sick eating here twice. Even though they say some of their food is safe, it's not. I would only eat food here if you aren't celiac
I was a little worried. The person taking my order had to ask others several questions and like another reviewer said, there is no GF menu at this location. The awesome thing is that the cook knew exactly what was and was not GF. He thankfully made my taco with shredded chicken and NOT the fajita chicken I ordered. It's not GF. I didn't have a reaction - OH YA! I''m not sold on this location though...a little skittish. By the way, it was quite tasty!
One of my favorite places to eat. Gluten feee guide for the menu that's easy to read. The food is amazing. They have never gotten my order wrong in regards to allergens. I eat here all the time. Definitely try the crispy shell grilled shrimp tacos. They are heaven!!
Allergen menu listed online, and they have a version at the front counter (one online is easier to navigate). The manager came out when he heard me asking about allergies. He reviewed what I planned to order to ensure it was all safe for my wheat allergic son. He had the kitchen clean the grill and use new utensils. We ended up not getting chips, nachos, or crispy tacos since they're fried in contaminated oil, as advised by the manager. Food a little salty, but from gluten-free perspective, it was a good experience.
The store in Denton was great so I went to this one near me a couple of times. Went for lunch one day and the chef was obviously put out that I asked for GF and I had a bad Gluten attack after. I may never eat there again, it's been a year n half since I did.
Ask for a manager or speak with a chef to double check the gluten free menu. I was able to eat steak tacos on corn tortillas with black beans and cilantro rice. Also had a margarita. Been to this location a few times with no issues.
DO NOT EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT!!! I have Celiac Disease and asked the cashier for a gluten-free menu. They did not know where it is located. So I asked the cashier to go ask a manager or chef to come take my order. The cashier comes back instead and tells me that I can order a beef taco on corn tortilla. When I picked up my order, I confirmed my order since I wasn't having high confidence in the appearance of the food. The CHEF did NOT know what food has gluten. That's a problem if you're working in the kitchen!! As I'm taking my tray to the trash after finishing my dinner, the supervisor walks over to inform me that there is flour in the beef marinade. Sorry doesn't cut it after I ate the food. Flour is poisonous to me and your chef LIED because he is uneducated on what is in the food he is preparing. Don't apologize because it won't change anything - I want to know how this can be prevented so I don't have to be severely sick. The supervisor also did not offer to reimburse me or make me new food - I asked for a refund and it took forever to get my money back too. I am never eating at the Ames location again. Horrible service with uneducated workers!!!
Staff is very friendly and was very helpful. They do not have a gluten free menu, but have a book with a list of what we can not eat. Most of everything there is gluten free. They also have a fryer just for the chips and nothing else is fried in it. I would defiantly go back!
Options are fairly limited, but food is good.
I was at the E Harmony Rd location and I agree with the previous review... the staff know the menu and are happy to answer any questions.
Told me chips were gf and I forgot to ask if they were in a shared fryer. They are. Got sick.
