    Since I don't know how to put out an accurate and actual description of my restaurant I'm going to clarify a few things through a review. I am the owner of Mezoco Mexican taqueria. We are GLUTEN FREE. All of our recipes are gluten free and have been eaten by celiac as well as people anaphylactic to gluten, which is a considerably more serious condition, and in over 6 years of serving this community have never had a problem. When we decide to make a menu item that does use gluten I ensure my staff is fully trained on how to prevent cross contamination. My previous establishment was a sandwich shop that specialized in our conventional bread. My business partner's son was anaphylactic to wheat and gluten and we NEVER had any issues. As for beer, we don't cook with it and it's behind the bar, not in the kitchen. @abuster I don't know who told you that information, but the only thing in the kitchen that has gluten at this time is our tres leches cake and we don't cook with any gluten. That cake is baked in a different facility and kept in a separate place from any other items. I encourage everyone to have a healthy fear of where they eat and what they eat since it is ultimately their responsibility, but to that end I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have. If you don't feel comfortable dining with us there is nothing I can do about that except reference my knowledge of the subject and my track record. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask. All the best, Greg

    Actually, they told me on Saturday’s they have GLUTEN in the restaurant that they cook in the kitchen, if I am not mistaken- so it is not a completely gf/celiac kitchen. That said, that does not mean it is not safe, but it should be known. Food is good (although I ate it scared after I knew because I thought it was completely gf) maybe just a bit less garlic.

    Great tacos and 100% GF. Don't be afraid of the bar location. The kitchen and bar are separate.

    It's a little hard to find, the location is actually half bar (different owner) and half restaurant. The restaurant is only a few tables and you have to order at the front and then sit and wait for it. Like others said it is 100% gluten free and my chicken quesadilla was awesome but the tacos were definitely sub par.

    A little misleading. We didn't try the food because it's actually located in the back of a Bar. Beer everywhere. I asked the waitress if everything was gluten free and she said yes, "except for the hamburger buns". I'm sure it's tasty but we were too worried about cross contamination to try it.
