Not safe for celiac. Called ahead of going, staff reassured me that they had a separate fryer for chips and GF options. Said they we familiar with Celiac disease and could accommodate. Once we were there, they said that it’s a shared fryer, so many options we not safe for my kids. Needless to say, it was a bummer of a night out and my kids felt really sad. The restaurant took no ownership of their mistake and they were unapologetic, making my kids feel terrible about having to live with celiac disease.

The menu identifies things as gluten friendly vs gluten-free. However, I have ordered the short rib tacos multiple times and have told him I have Celiac disease, and I have never gotten sick or experienced any symptoms after eating there.

A good number of gluten free options. The quality is excellent. I had the pork carnitas tacos, which were full of flavorful, high quality pork.

Staff is knowledgeable about GF and will explain the GF options and answer any questions or concerns.

The food here is fantastic. I didn’t think three small (corn tortilla) tacos and rice would fill me up but I’m stuffed after each time I eat here. The short rib tacos are mind blowing delicious!!

Celiacs beware. This restaurant has a lot of gf options, but they do NOT have a separate fryer. The three dishes I was recommended were the chicken tinga bowl, carnitas bowl and the grilled chicken bowl which doesn’t leave many options.
