The food was delicious and all from scratch. GF items are labeled. I asked about the tortilla chips and they fried are in a separate fryer. I’ve had some bad reactions from fried food contaminated with gluten and I didn’t have a reaction at all. Highly recommended!

The menu did a good job designating which meals were GF. The food was very tasty and service was also friendly and helpful. Based on other GF reviews we avoided fried foods.

Went here for lunch, the staff was very knowledgeable and told us that everyone actually has to get a special allergy certification to work there. They brought out gf chips and salsa (the chips they originally brought out were gf but were in a shared fryer so they brought of celiac safe ones). I got a quesadilla (can never find these GF) and it was delicious and the corn tortilla looked/tasted homemade. The menu is marked with what is GF and there are many options. There are also other allergens marked- they are very good about allergies/dietary restriction. Would def go back again!

Unfortunately several items aren’t actually gluten free because they share a fryer with the other fried stuff. Found this out after several times going and sometimes having tummy issues after :( such a shame

The food is delicious, but double-check your takeout order as they frequently make mistakes. The fryer is no longer safe and take-out orders cannot get GF chips.

The food here was delicious! The staff was knowledgeable about how to handle a gluten allergy & celiac. They provided us with chips from a gf fryer upon request & were very careful with our food. My husband (celiac) enjoyed his food & had no reaction.

Confirmed fryer isn’t safe. But they will make you separate chips but they didn’t arrive until we were finished with our whole meal.

Ok amount of options.

Finally, a place where I can eat the chips and salsa because the fryer is (reportedly) dedicated GF! I've been three times in the last 3 weeks. Granted I'm asymptomatic, so I don't have a built in gluten detector like some people ostensibly have, but I've had no issues with the food there. I've ordered the acai power bowl, chilaquiles, and vegan enchiladas and loved them all.

Delicious food and knowledgable staff! The fryer they use isn't dedicated but if you ask for it they can make chips that aren't cross contaminated (which apparently just take a while).

Great food, fresh corn tortillas, real horchata, amazing coffee. Beans were great, and all for the green hot sauce.

Incredible! All staff from the hosts to the servers were aware of gluten issues. Tortilla chips are fried in a dedicated fryer. Extensive gf choices. Had the guacamole and Enchiladas Suizas- both were authentically crafted and delicious. Would have tried the Chocoflan but the first part of the meal was so satisfying, I didn’t have an excuse to treat my sweet tooth. Will be back, next time with room for dessert.

Excellent made from scratch Mexican food, with a dedicated fryer for chips (edit: I have eaten here multiple times and on my most recent visit I had a bad reaction! I'm afraid they've made changes or gotten careless!) Menu has things marked GF, but celiacs need to be careful and ask first. Certain side items might be cross contamination risks, have your server ask questions.

Not celiac friendly... They said they have a gluten free fryer and try to accommodate food allergies but my wife got suuuuuuuper glutened by this place. She had one of the main dishes listed GF (chicken enchaladas) tortilla chips and salsa.

The wait staff wasn't very knowledgeable about cross contamination, etc. only what they were told was safe. Would not recommend for anyone sensitive...

Aside from that you aren't missing much anyway, mediocre Mexican food hiding behind a hip building and decor. Also the service was pretty lack luster to begin with.
