While the staff warned us off anything with tortillas the kitchen seems to have either horrible cross contamination issues or is using gluten without thinking about it.

Corn chips made with wheat!

Had a very hard time finding something safe here the 2-3x I tried. Same with Bay Farm location.

My friend and I needed a quick meal and there wasn't much in the area. We decided to try this place and I was happy to find corn masa tortillas. They were understanding about needing to keep it away from gluten and I didn't have any reaction after eating here. Good place for a quick and safe bite!
