Celiac 7 y/o. Entire staff and place is very accustomed to GF prep to avoid cross contamination. Changed gloves, separate prep area, separate toppings were pulled out. They have soft or hard corn tacos too. (Only the flour tortillas have gluten; all else is Gf)

Food is prepared at a kitchen line at the ordering counter. Flour tortillas are present. I ordered corn tacos. They were prepared on the grill using aluminum foil and then transferred to a clean container. Pretty much everything else in the restaurant is gluten free. Staff all changed gloves and got toppings from clean containers to avoid contamination.

Staff was very aware of GF and immediately changed gloves and wiped surfaces and we didn’t get the feeling of us being an annoyance we do elsewhere. Kind quick and super friendly. Separate items such as cheese and toppings were taken from a GF bin that was in contaminated. Would definitely recommend and will return. Thank you for making our lives a little easier!

Even ordering on-line, there was a clear Gluten free, it’s and allergy checkbox. Lots of options the flour tortillas are the only gluten in the place. Delicious food.

I stated I couldn’t have gluten and the server immediately washed hands and changed her gloves. After asking me if I wanted a flour or corn tortilla (I told her corn and gave her the benefit of the doubt) she then proceeded to handle contaminated equipment with those gloves before handling my food. She placed my corn tortillas on the grill on foil, but left one half of one hanging off of the foil and laying on the contaminated grill, in the exact spot from where she has just moved a flour quesadilla. I apologized and told her I changed my mind and left, humiliated.

I mentioned celiac and need for dairy free and they immediately started removing gloves, wiping things down, and got out a new container of lettuce to ensure no contamination. With new gloves and repeated checks by them to make sure they were so careful with us it was such a relief. I thanked them for being so careful, everyone in the family enjoyed the food. Even just the plain rice from the rice bowl for my youngest!

We visited Wells for vacation and this place was great! I informed the staff I needed a gluten free meal and they all changed gloves and brought out new lettuce, lime, cilantro and cheese to be sure there was no cross contamination. We ended up eating there for the first meal and then my husband and I did take out for a second meal (the kids wanted chicken nuggets...)

This is better than Chipotle, and the staff was great with our daughter's gluten and lactose intolerances (and our friend's nut allergies). Without even asking they cleaned all surfaces, change their gloves, and brought food from the back to avoid any contamination. Very pleased!!

Having celiac disease, I was glad (but cautious) to see the 'gluten free' on the menu. I told the server about celiac and ordered the chicken quesadilla on the corn tortillas. The server wiped down the counter, changed their gloves and brought out new onions and lettuce from the kitchen. She kept everything separate. Really tasty food- will definitely come back.

I eat here all the time and have never had an issue. I usually get a burrito bowl or the nachos. Food is always amazing. Just have to tell them it’s gluten free and they’ll wipe down and change their gloves. They also get certain ingredients from new containers that could be cross contaminated.

They’re always very good when I come here and I’m super sensitive. Nachos are a good option because you don’t have to worry about anything going on the grill.
