Staff was knowledgeable. The only taco marked with a G was the one that had gluten which was a huge emotional boost for my kid with celiac. Tacos were inventive and delish. Fruit salad was a treat!

Staff well informed. Server noted gluten allergy on iPad when ordering. Fried items not safe but the majority of the menu is naturally GF!

Delicious! Chicken taco on the left, carnitas on the right. Both fantastic but the chicken with the mole was my favorite! Excellent blue corn shells.
Chicken taco with lettuce instead of the red cabbage. Steak taco minus the fries

This was our go-to GF place while in La Jolla. With a celiac kiddo we were a bit disappointed in the number of safe options in LJ and in SD in general. Galaxy was there for us and took great care of us. Ate there several times in a week. Cool place, too, and we're still talking about the artwork in the, ahem, bathrooms 😆

I never post reviews but this was beyond delicious! Fresh homemade tortilla chips and most of the menu is GF! I got a blue corn shrimp quesadilla! Amazing!! My non GF husband got the sweet potato quesadilla and that too was out of this world. Highly recommend the grapefruit margarita!

Based on the reviews my husband (who is celiac) and I went here, the server seemed very knowledgeable and reassured us it was safe, however my husband got sick so I would not recommend it if you are celiac.

Just about everything here is gf. Just not the fried fish or fries. Dedicated frier for chips. They make their own blue corn tortillas. Excellent guac and tacos. I got the chicken taco and steak taco--minus the fries. The steak was super spicy and the chicken moderately spicy but great flavor. Good tequila too!

So many options from knowledgeable bartenders to being able to eat their chips. Best guacamole ever. Queso fundido with shishito peppers was great. My hubby's pork dish was amazing, and I normally don't really like pork! The steak dish looked wonderful as well. I had tacos and the yummy, not quite traditional flan... So good! Everything was so fresh, healthy, and delicious. Definitely modern Mexican. No crappy tequila up in this joint either ;)

Although they don't have a dedicated GF menu, they are knowledgable--just let them know. The good news is that most items, including the chips, are GF. Excellent tacos--so unique and delicious!! Watch their pricing, they tend to add extras.

I have eaten several times at Galaxy Taco and their food is pretty good. Tacos are $5-6 each (some are small with little filling) and some drinks are a little on the pricey side. I always tell the waitress I am looking for gluten-free items and they are pretty accommodating. They have a special menu on "Taco Tuesdays" too. Tastes good when you are in the mood for some NOT fast food style Mexican. I'll go again.
