I’m extremely sensitive celiac, and don’t take any chances, but I felt comfortable eating here. The entire menu is gluten free, except for the mole sauce, which they keep separate. I asked the server to still warn the chef about celiac and cross contamination (change gloves, clean pan, etc.). I will say that you order online (at least during Covid times), so you have to annotate that warning in your order as well. I’ve been here twice - the first time, the manager who I spoke with was honestly quite rude about me asking him to talk to the chef and give a heads up. It took a lot of back and forth to finally get him to. That being said, I did feel safe eating and had a good meal with no issues after the fact. The second time I ate here, the server was incredibly kind and immediately went to tell the chef. Disappointing treatment first go around, but the second time was great.

Our go to place for a really nice, reliable gluten free dinner. The food is delicious and the menu is almost entirely naturally gluten free. The staff are incredibly knowledgable and accommodating. Update as of 2020, their carnitas no longer contain beer making them a delicious new gluten free option. We're fans and have never had any issue here with cross contamination.

My server was able to show me on the menu which items were safe for GF (none of the pork dishes are safe because they cook the pork in beer). Plenty to choose from, including totopos, and the food is delicious.

Relaxing environment. Great natural light. Lots of naturally gluten free menu items. Most utilize corn. Reasonably priced. Two for lunch came to $36.

Almost everything was GF, the waiter was knowledgeable about what wasn’t, and informed me there is a separate fryer. Food was good, nothing mind blowing. Nice to have a Mexican place I can eat at, since most authentic taquerias are so small that I’m too afraid of cross contamination to try them :(

Great food! Great staff! The food was delicious and flavorful. I have Celiacs and I felt safe. My husband even spilled his drink and they quickly replaced it with out us having to order another one. We will definitely visit again.

Somewhat knowledgable but lots of cross contamination means there ended up being very few options.

Most item on the menu are gluten free. I had the Huevos de Caja and did not have any reaction whatsoever and am a very sensitive celiac. I would recommend.
