    This place is really cool, nice music, delicious food and great customer service. I'm celiac and I spoke to the manager and she takes all the precautions in the kitchen. Everything was fine. Try Choriqueso, is so tasty.

    This.place.is.AMAZING. Food is truly awesome, staff are super nice and really hard workers and ambiance is really fun. Lots of outdoor seating and bar is first come first serve (albeit a little tight on space). Be prepared for a bit of a wait, we went two times in a row and it was packed both times. Most of the menu is gluten free and really, truly amazing. The red snapper was delicious, the camote was unexpected but delicious and the sopecitos are awesome. I just finished dinner there and am already thinking about next meal options.

    Great gluten free menu! I wish all restaurants did this! At first I had a hard time maneuvering the menu. It was hard to know what the meat veggie corn ratios were from the menu descriptions and many of the ingredient combinations were not for me. I don't like too many overpowering sauces or pickled things. At first I wanted the duck enchilada looking dish but I really am picky about mole sauce. I don't like the overly chocolate smokey flavor. Our waiter was very kind and let me taste it before ordering and yep the mole sauce was too rich for me. My dining partner liked it and ate the rest of the dipping sauce. As a waiter was delivering food by my table that appealed to me, I stalked it. Both of those plates looked good so it was between the gorditas and ticoynes. I went with the ticoynes with pork but no pickled onions substitute regular onions and yep it was so delicious I ate the whole thing. Also they let me order half order of the salad with cactus dressing for half the cost. The salad was tremendously good and my dining partner loved his burger. I tasted it yep the burger rocked and all the toppings of the burger were magic. The red sauce they serve with chips was delicious. Not too spicy and very different than traditional salsa. You just have to try it. So even though I am picky as hell the service here helped me have a heavenly meal. I shall return and try the hurrache or tacos next. Thanks Licha for being so kind to me.

    Almost everything is gluten free. I highly recommend the ceviche, STEAK TAMPIQUEÑO and the TOCINADA, all were awesome choices.

    Most items are gluten free. I had the mushroom queso and a quesadilla. Chips and hot sauce are good too. Great vibe here! I have celiac and had no reaction after eating here. :)

    Loved this place. I could order almost anything, and my non-GF friends loved their food just as much as I did.

    Nearly the entire menu is GF. I had the goat plate - it was tender and fantastic! The slaw and retried black beans were great, but the guacamole was mediocre at best. Drinks were also good! The place is a little old house that's been transformed - cute and quaint.

    WOW. I had a quesadilla last night for the first time in years. They also don't fry their tortilla chips which I greatly appreciate. GF items are noted on the menu!

    Almost everything on the menu is gluten free! Pastor quesadilla (ya I said a gluten free quesadilla!) is to die for and love their chips and salsas! Not your typical Mexican food! Everything I've tried is delicious!
