My partner and I (both celiac) had some take out tacos from here last week. His steak one was good, my chicken one was pretty bland and flavorless. No reaction though so it is a safe place to eat.

Chicken tacos exceeded my expectations- very tasty. Specify that you need corn tortillas. Rice and beans are safe. Staff were knowledgeable on GF. There is a dedicated fryer for chips and salsa. Unfortunately they use a sour mix in their margaritas— They may still be GF but since I prefer fresh squeezed, I didn’t ask and just ordered a different drink. Look forward to returning to this neighborhood spot!
