Joe at the front counter was AMAZING, he has a relative with celiac and was very knowledgeable and helpful with ordering. My order was marked celiac and was prepared separately.

Food was delicious, will definitely return to try additional items. Had the elote and birria tacos with guac and salsa, very flavorful.

I’ve been at the hospital across the street while my mom has been ill. Interacting with Joe has added a small sparkle to some of the most stressful days I’ve been through. I’m so grateful to have so many tasty gluten free options, and to know it’s prepared safely. Joe double checks everything if you add “gluten allergy” to the order. And the Birria is sooo good!

AMAZING little hidden gem! Lots of GF options and knowledgeable staff. No seating available and a little pricey but well worth it—generous portions and DELICIOUS!

Awesome family owned/operated spot with thoughtful/knowledgable staff. The beef is organic grass-fed and there is a clear awareness of ingredients which always brings comfort when ordering out. A must visit spot for GF and non-GF alike.
