Update spring 2022: past time I was here they switched to making chips in house, so they’re no longer GF. Definitely ask before you have chips to be sure. They felt badly and brought an impressive veggie tray instead :).

Note this place changed ownership sometime in 2020 and they have a new menu, so older reviews likely won’t apply. They get their tortilla chips offsite and they are GF!! Not my favorite chips but I was so pumped to finally find a Mexican restaurant where I could enjoy the free chips & salsa! Their corn tortillas for tacos are delicious. I’ve had the shrimp & grilled fish tacos, guac, and salsa multiple times without any issues
