    I'm a reactive celiac. I have eaten here many times and have never had a problem. The people are super nice and friendly and they are very attentive to the fact it needs to be gluten free. Highly recommend them.

    I'm surprised by the poor reviews. As a celiac I think they do a good job. I avoid the chips but I always get their burrito bowls. They are super fast and convenient for lunch during the week. I don't think they're the best Tex mex around but it's a great option to have.

    Nice people but I didn't really feel safe to eat.

    The one star is only because of information gained in phone call--food is great if you don't have to worry about cross contamination. Just called to order dinner for our family. Our 8 year old son gets very sick about 30 minutes after eating gluten, so we are very careful. Was told by the lady taking out order that the chips are prepared in a shared fryer, so in my opinion, this is NOT celiac friendly. Too bad, because it is good food.

    Wide choice of GF items, very tasty, and inexpensive- that's a good combination. I shared the Mexican plate with someone because of the large portion- very good. My other companion has the burrito bowl with soft corn tortillas on the side to assemble her own. All really good. Updated: this was so good we came back for lunch the next day and it was just as good. We all got the burrito bowl with corn tortillas. The house hot sauces that are served as condiments are really good.

    I've asked about a hundred times (just to be sure), and they always say that basically everything that seems like it would be gluten free IS gluten free. Just ask for corn tortillas instead of the standard wheat tortillas. The tacos are great. Both the tofu and un-beef are GF. The chips and salsa/guacamole are fantastic. The staff is very knowledgeable. I love it.

    John's Tex-Mex is awesome! Not only is their food cheap and delicious, but they also have dairy free and tofu options. (And if you can't have cheese and sour cream on your food then they'll put guacamole free of charge). Sunday's they also have brunch with specials that change every month.
