You MUST tell them you are celiac and request separate fryer. I got sick twice and couldn’t figure it out until our server explained that unless you say you are celiac, the wait staff doesn’t know to use the other fryer, because they are “technically” gluten free because the tortillas are corn. Ugh. Shelby made it right and said she would pass along the info to the staff.
The menu clearly states what is and isn’t gluten free. I had the chicken fajitas with corn tortillas, very good. Feeling good afterwards.
GF items are marked. Was delicious. Not sure about the fryer so I skipped the chips.
Unfortunately, the dedicated fryer was down, so I could not try their chips, but they more than made up for it by offering several other accommodations. The menu is clearly marked and the staff is very knowledgeable. There are so many fresh and homemade items that it is hard to get a bad meal.
Great local find! Are here on a recent business trip and it was so wonderful. Had to ask for chips to be cooked in GF fryer and waited loger but staff as very accommodating. All salsa is GF... had a hard time picking which oestrogen to try. Also ate the carnitas tacos and they were fabulous! Menu is marked with GF items. Asked to mark my order as "allergy" to ensure safe practices. No reaction to any of the food. Cilantro lime rice was to die for... best Mexican I have had!
LOVED this place! We ate at the bar and had a great time. It was actually very comfortable (in terms of ambiance, temperature, music, personal space), more comfortable than we probably would have been in the dining area. And it was fun to talk to the bartenders. We had a couple of bartenders and they were both great. Of course, the receipt says “bar” so I don’t know their names, a taller young man and a dark haired young woman with blue eyes. Both were excellent on service. I mean, he actually moved the box of limes away to give us more space, I thought that was really nice, right off the bat. And she was also attentive and pleasant and really helpful with the menu and drink knowledge. So I can’t say enough about how great the service was.
But the food was equally good. My wife has a gluten allergy and this place not only has the gf items marked clearly, but they can also accommodate some things that aren’t specifically marked as such. AND they note they have a dedicated fryer for the (corn/gf) tortilla chips.
Enjoyed the salsa starter (set of 3) with fresh hot chips. I liked that the chips were more of the thin long style than the triangular. But the appetizer that was even better was the street corn. A complete winner.
My wife’s chicken tacos were excellent. Flavorful, moist chicken. I had the chicken adobe tamales with the cilantro lime rice and black beans. Check, check, and check - great, great, and great. Loved the texture of the masa, little shavings of jalapeño and the tomatillo sauce in the tamale (and the chicken itself, of course). Really enjoyed that tamale!
Drinks were also great. Sure, they had plenty of margarita options (I got the premium, which came in a martini glass, it was very good) but also several cocktails and not a bad wine list. For a shorter wine list, the selections were pretty good. Particularly the Anne Amie Pinot Gris, that’s a very good choice. And they have it by the glass or the carafe. Like that a lot!
We would definitely return to this place. It’s in a shopping area so plenty of easy parking too, but the food and the service are what will bring us back.
They are very gluten aware, many of the items on the menu are designated gluten free. Everything is crazy delicious! Not cheap, but worth it. This severe celiac had no issues at all. Expect a wait and possibly slower service, they are new and too popular too fast!
