Staff did not know what was or wasn't gluten free. When we asked some questions we were met with contradictory information. The tortilla presses for flour and corn are shared and the staff refused to use foil to protect against cross contamination which means the only actual GF item on the menu is the bowl as the frier for chips is shared.

Just like chipotle which I love, service was great. Some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever had and everything was clearly marked gluten free, pretty much everything I saw was gluten free, very happy and will be coming back

Overpriced. Basically a Moes. Go down the line and build your own bowl or burrito. Not bad but definitely overpriced. Chips and salsa were garbage, we didn’t even eat them. I ate less than 1/2 my bowl and gave the rest to a homeless man outside.

This is like chipotle. Had a burrito bowl with chicken. Tested with nima and it returned as gluten free. It was a decent meal. Don’t take the corn tortillas as they are warmed up with all the flour tortillas. Staff changed gloves to prepare my order.

Everything is labeled gluten free and/or vegan, which I love. Makes things so easy. I got a veggie burrito bowl, but I think most of the meats were labeled gluten free too. Tortilla chips are fried in a shared fryer, so I skipped the chips.

This must be hit or miss. I didn’t have the same experience as other reviewers. I had to explain a lot and ask specific questions about cross contamination practices. The server was clueless. I did not get sick but there are so many celiac safe places in Waikiki. I would not send someone here.

Stumbled across this place by accident. Climb a flight of stairs right off the sidewalk along the beach. Stand in a line - cafeteria style. Super friendly staff. A little bit of a wait to pay after your food is prepared but that was the only downside. Kalua pork is gluten free along with both bean choices and both rice choices. If you’re just gluten sensitive feel free to try the several protein choices (trace gluten from canned chipotle peppers). They have a big breakfast menu as well. Definitely recommend OMG.

Staff were knowledgeable and knew what was GF and what wasn’t. I got the nachos with beans and cheese (the liquid cheese sauce is not GF, so ask for grated cheese instead). The chipotle sauce is also not GF, neither are the meats. As a vegetarian, I was very happy with my nachos and we returned a second time to eat the same thing! Celiac friendly as long as you ask them to be cautious with cross contamination.

Staff was super knowledgeable and friendly and changed gloves without asking. However, there is no separate fryer for the chips and corn tortillas are heated on the same as the flour. Also, the only meat that is gf is the pork and the roasted vegetables are not gf either. Again, great service but disappointing options.

OK but not as fresh and delicious as our local Chipotle, and it is more expensive. Great view of the sea though.

The staff was very accommodating and guided us on gluten free eating. They were knowledgeable about celiac restrictions, changed gloves to make our food, and very helpful. The food was fresh and delicious. We ate there twice so far — take out picnic on the beach one night too.
