    Traveling with 2 kids and this place was great. My kids had chicken tacos with no problems and they had flan for the first time. They shared one and immediately begged for another. No dedicated fryer - so bring your own tortilla chips.

    The staff was wonderful. They knew all about Celiac and were able to make sure I was safe to eat what I ordered. I'm Celiac and dairy free and had the Huevos Rancheros with no cheese. It was delicious! My non-gf husband also really enjoyed his dish too (combo plate).

    Food was delish and they were super aware of all my concerns. The combo plate let me try a little of everything. Wish I had room to try the flan.

    Despite its humble appearance, this place is a fantastic dining experience. Fine dining service in a casual atmosphere. Many menu items are gluten free. New Mexico cuisine doesn't get any better than this!

    Very good Mexican food! And I was amazed at the staff's knowledge of Celiacs, cross contamination, and what ingredients they use that are safe. Great place!

    The best Mexican food ever! They have options to increase or decrease spiciness of food with the green and red sauces. The guacamole was excellent! Staff service was very knowledgeable on gluten free selections and preparation (which most of the menu is GF). I would highly recommend this place to all celiacs and gluten sensitive customers.

    Awesome food! I was in town for a conference and ate here 3 of the 5 days. Super nice staff, really tiny place though.

    This really doesn't look like a very promising place from the outside / decor but the food is very good and the servers are knowledgeable about celiac disease. Lovely to have so much choice!

    The food was great and it was wonderful to have choices. Everything on the menu except two things could be gluten free. The sign in the window even mentions they have gluten free and wheat free food. I had the combination plate and especially loved the chili relleno. My non-GF spouse cleaned his plate and declared it all wonderful, too.

    Knew what they were talking about. Very knowledgeable wait staff. A real hole in the wall with great food.

    Honestly, I wasn't sure about this place when I pulled in, but decided to try it. It's so clear how much pride and care go into this restaurant -- it's clean, professional, and the food is very tasty! I felt like I could order what I WANTED! Plus...they deliver! Delivery GF? Yes!

    Very good food. We had the Plato Combinado. First Chile Relleno since my diagnosis in 2011. It did not disappoint!

    The best Mexican food I've had since I went to Mexico ! Waiter brought me my own corn tortillas and a spoon so that I wouldn't cross contaminate the appetizers. I heard him specify to the cook that I had Celiac. Service was also exceptional.

    Worst Mexican food I've ever eaten. Taco was soggy, chile relenos was mushy. No cilantro anywhere.

    Wonderful food and perfect service!! I have celiac and my brother in law is extremely sensitive to cross contamination. The server was knowledgable about his menu and what is gluten free. Would def recommend if you are in the Taos area and need gfree. :)

    Amazing food! Small little hole in the wall but truly authentic Mexican food. Opens at 10am and serves breakfast. Has a lot of gluten free options! Definitely recommend.

    The server was knowledgeable and the green chile enchiladas (sauce thickened with rice flour) were tasty.

    Great food, great price point. When I inquired about gluten free they immediately asked if it was celiacs. It's clear they understand about cross contamination. The food is very very tasty and really inexpensive- in the heart of the historic district.
