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.

This was hands down the best Mexican food I’ve had in the US. They make fresh corn tortillas. Everything is fresh. The menu is clearly labeled on gf items.

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).

My waiter understood celiac and made sure with the chef that my food had no cross contamination. The food was amazing, and everything gf was clearly labeled on the menu. Definitely going back again.

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.
