The best taco meal I've ever had. The entire menu except the churros can be made gf. We tried three of the tacos, the nachos, and the beans and rice. Everything was amazing. The beef used on the taco and the nachos was delicious and I love being able to eat chips. They have seperate gf ones. The waitstaff is knowledgeable. I will definitely be back.

Amazing food AND amazing service. They had really great gluten free options and if our server didn’t know the answer to one of my questions, he found the answer. I felt really safe eating here and had an amazing time.

They can make almost anything on the menu gluten free and have gluten free chips!

The food was pretty good! I had the gluten free nachos and gluten free chips and salsa :) They can also make most of the tacos gluten free! Be sure to get two tacos because they are very small.

Amazing service!! We had the guacamole, GF chips, Street corn, and 4 different tacos; Pollo, Shrimp, Carne Assad, Al Pastor. Definitely Gluten free with no reaction. However all of the food we tried had an overwhelming taste of lime. Neither of us enjoyed our food. One celiac and one not. With the guacamole we couldn’t even taste the avocado or any other flavors, it was straight lime. Same for the tacos. The street corn was by far the best. If your in a jam for something gluten free this place is safe, but there are many other restaurants in Traverse City that offer gluten free that are better!

A delicious place that has gf options that are great! They have separate chips for us and accommodate all allergies. I am vegan and celiac disease and they prepared my food based on these dietary needs. A must go to!

My daughter has celiac disease and there are very few places she can safely eat. This place was a GREAT find!! She loved all the choices and the wait staff was very knowledgeable. The tacos were AMAZING! We can't wait to eat here again.

The staff is very knowledgeable about celiac. They have gluten free chips!!!!! Almost all of the menu can be gluten free (not items removed to be GF) making it so we could have the items as described in the menu. My boyfriend isn’t celiac but eats GF with me when we are out and he enjoyed every bite! Beans and rice are amazing! Ate here twice on vacation!

Amazing. Tacos can be made gf and are to die for. Even the chips and their two salsas were excellent. It is a small restaurant so it was packed at noon on a Saturday. But the service was great and fast.

We vacation in TC every summer and this is our new “go to” place for Celiac friendly street style food. The tacos are so good and the margaritas are spot on. You leave here feeling like you got quality food for a fair price. Be warned: This place is small but totally worth the wait. Would be hard, if not impossible, to bring a large group to eat here on a busy night.

Being celiac I hate going out to eat, however on vacation I really didn't have a choice. The menu does offer gf items & when I told them they said they treat every gluten free as celiac. She said it may take a little longer because they had to prep the kitchen (which I was ok with, ensures they did take the time). I'm sensitive & I had ZERO issues here & the food was good! I highly recommend if you're in town. Just let them know ahead of time & they'll go above & beyond. I wish they knew how much it meant to me! Let me add that yes they don't have a lot if options but the resturant in general doesn't have a lot of options. It's a street taco spot!

Originally went here because the business directly told me they had a dedicated fryer and that the majority of their menu was gluten-free. Since that contact last September, they have eliminated the gluten-free fryer and changed their menu. There were many items that had fried ingredients on them, making that selection no longer gluten-free. Our waitress was knowledgeable about what was safe and recommended certain items. They even recreated the chicken taco by rolling it in crushed tortilla chips and baking it, instead of giving me the fried chicken. Overall the food was good, just highly disappointed about the change in menu, which makes me only give it two stars.

I am GF and DF. Lots of options. I could eat the chips and I preferred the creamy tomato salsa. Short rib taco was to die for. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend this place!!

This place was awesome! Almost the whole menu is gluten free. I came with my boyfriend and we split the chips and salsa (the Mama Lu's special salsa is to die for. They are going to begin selling it next summer!) he got two different tacos and I got the nachos. Will definitely be back next time! Server was very knowledgeable which makes me think everyone there must be as well :)

Almost the entire menu is gluten free as is. No asking for a different menu! There was only one taco and a dessert that was not gluten free. The corn tortillas are made in house. Even the corn chips are produced in a gluten free facility. GREAT! Separate fryer is used for the items with gluten so no worries about cross contamination. Knowledgeable staff was able to answer questions quickly.
