Have eaten here several times. As with most Mexican food it’s almost all gluten free. The understand cross contamination because they warn me about the shared fryer.

We are not celiac, so keep that in mind, but they took great care of my son and me yesterday. They were very happy to accommodate us. That said, the food is outstanding! It’s all tapas dishes and each one was better than the last.

Currently they have a Monday menu, taco Tuesday menu, and a Wed-Sat menu, which is the one I can speak to. There is only one thing on that menu that isn’t naturally gluten free, so skip that one. Everything else uses corn tortillas and doesn’t have additional added gluten ingredients. No current GF desserts but they said they would look adding one.

Also notable: They cook all of their fish and shellfish in a separate place than the other food, so if you have a shellfish allergy and can still tolerate it potentially being in the air (a problem for some), this may be a place to look into.

We will return, and will take people here if we want to impress them with delicious food.

Mexican small plates. My waitress was very knowledgeable and there were many menu items that could be modified to be gluten-free. They don’t have a dedicated gf fryer, but they were very accommodating and willing to fry separately to make more gf options. This was the most attentive service I have had and I felt very safe. The food was fantastic and the margaritas were great!
