    Server told me items were gluten free and seemed impatient with me for even asking. I should have taken that as a red flag, but I was with a bunch of co-workers so I ordered anyway. My meal was not gluten free and now I am sitting at work feeling miserable.

    They will no longer say anything is gluten free. It is not safe to eat here if you have a problem with cross contamination.

    Custom made corn quesadillas with pulled pork that were incredible. Even on a packed evening, they were knowledgable and went to double check that the food was gluten-free when I asked.

    When I asked if they have a GF menu, the server immediately got the manager who came over and explained what was safe on the menu. They custom made some street tacos for me based on what I can tolerate. Couldn't ask for more! Manager said they are working on getting a dedicated fryer and redesigning some of their marinade recipes so GF customers will have even more choices.

    The staff was mostly clueless about what was and wasn't gluten-free on the menu. I should have left at that point. My mistake, which I paid for for about a day. Avoid!

    Dedicated GF and vegetarian menu. I got the grilled veggie street tacos and they were great. My (non-GF) friends got burritos and were also very pleased. All of the chips, salsas, and sides were tasty. Wait staff was friendly and prompt. Clientele seemed to be mostly locals - always a good sign!

    Limited but dedicated gluten free (and vegan) menu... This is simply one of my favorite spots in all of San Diego. Chips and salsa are divine! Salsas and guacamole are also gluten free and vegan. Happy Hour 3-7pm daily with half price appetizers and half off all drinks!
