Offers a few different GF soft shell tacos and sides: refried beans, rice, and street corn. I tried all the tacos and the street corn - the corn was just ok as were most of the tacos, but the spicy chorizo and yucatecan pork were delicious!

Server was knowledgeable and I had no reactions.

Repeatedly sent food back to the kitchen because they kept forgetting requests with allergen issues (gluten and dairy allergies). Not confident with the cross contamination safety here.

Great tacos. Corn shells with lots of options including those you don't often find elsewhere like fish, brisket, and duck as well as those you do, like steak asada and chicken.

Has a great allergen menu and delicious house made corn tortillas for their tacos. a lot of their sides are also gluten free (black beans, rice, etc). My favorite place since going gluten & dairy free!

Fun & trendy with an attached arcade room. I called ahead and spoke with the manager, Charles. He was able to give information on safe options - GF items are noted on the menu, plus I was able to customize the portobello taco to make it GF by omitting the crispy onions. Chips are in a shared fryer, so not celiac safe. When I arrived, my server did not seem very knowledgeable - she said that by marking my order as gluten allergy that the chefs would know what to do. I asked to speak with Charles, and he personally handled my order. It was obvious he understood the importance of eliminating cross-contact.

I enjoyed my meal, I haven’t had any ill effects as of yet. I had the carne asada, the chicken and the pork tacos. I also had the cilantro rice which was very good. The waitress brought my dinner out on a separate plate like I asked as I saw reviews that mentioned “family style” service. Overall good food, excellent service.

This place is good for families looking for tacos. There aren’t that many gluten free tacos and because they lack a dedicated fryer nothing fried including the chips are gluten free. Which is very sad.

The tacos are small and tasty. Plan on ordering at least 3-5 tacos if you want to be full. I always stick to just tacos and have never tried any of the sides but I’m sure there is a gluten free side (not chips) that could round out the meal. The drink menu is decent and the drinks are okay.

GF items are marked. Several taco choices and some sides. Chips are sadly not GF. Eaten here many times without getting sick! Good food.

Just beware - if multiple people in your party also order tacos, they may bring them out in the same serving dish. My taco was touching a flour one. Didn’t get sick but just ask your server to separate them.
