    This is my favorite place to eat. We've come here several times and I've never had an issue. Every server has been kind and knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend it.

    Server was very knowledgeable of the menu, one of the first questions asked was if there were any allergies, and she was very forthcoming with GF suggestions.

    The food tastes great, but I always feel/get sick after eating here. I don't think the corn tortilla tacos are gluten free (although they are not marked to be made with flour on the menu)

    The first time I ate here, I felt great afterward. However, I have eaten here several times since and gotten glutened several times. I think the waiter grabbed the wrong chips once (asked for celiac and received regular), and another time I had the flatbread, which is actually cooked on a shared surface (which I found out after, when another waitress filled me in). It is possible to have a gluten free dinner but I would be careful. Seriously though, the salmon tacos are delicious!

    The menu isn't labeled but the server was very knowledgeable and they have celiac-safe chips! I got the Asada Huarache, which was very good.

    This place is awesome! Celiac tortilla chips!! The waiter was great, went out of his way to reassure me that my meal was safe, made recommendations. Had the Mushroom flatbread which was amazing. I would go here every day! Only negative- no GF beer!

    I've eaten here 3 times now and never had a problem. I was there last week and they told me that they fry their "celiac" tortilla chips first thing in the morning before any gluten containing items are fried. All 3 servers have been helpful and knowledgable.

    Went there for the first time yesterday and it was amazing. first my friend called to make the reservation and they went on a 10 diatribe on the difference between how the gluten free and celiac food was prepared. Then ot only is most of the menu gluten free, but they also have "celiac" friendly items where they take extra precaution with your food and when it comes out, they say "celiac (food item)"!!! the guacamole (regular and pomegranate) and nachos (w. chicken) are main items in the celiac menu, they can accomadate other items but i know those are safe. Be warned, the nachos are extra spicy! :)

    Went in gluten free and came out glutened!!Specifically told hostess and waitress that I have celiac, ordered chorizo with corn tortillas, and by the time they informed us (about 5 minutes later) that the tortillas we just consumed flour tortillas. "Oops. Sorry about that", was the response. We will not be going back. Ever

    Upon asking our server if there were gluten free options our server answered that it was easier to tell us what was not GF! Most of the gluten dishes were also easily made GF by changing from flour tortillas to corn. They also have a dedicated frier for tortilla chips. Our entire meal was delicious. I was also thrilled when they specially made an order of plain grilled meat for one of my children who is on a FODMAPS elimination diet. It made her day to be able to eat something at the restaurant instead of food from a thermos.

    All around great. Fresh food, knowledgeable staff and almost everything was naturally GF! Not your generic Mexican restaurant but rather a more modern approach. Highly recommended.

    Imagine hearing "almost everything is gluten free"! Upscale, more traditional, Mexican food. Food was outstanding, served tapas style - so we got to share and try lots of dishes. I can't wait to go again!
