I do not recommend this place for Celiacs. Food was just ok. We got chips and guac (without the wheat tortilla bowl) and the grilled cactus, both were marked gluten free by a registered dietitian. I asked our server the usual cross-contam question about the chips (we're these fried in a dedicated fryer) and he just kept saying "They are gluten free". After a few exchanges, I said, that's not what I'm asking you, will you please answer my question. My travel companion heard him say yes. I should have gone with gut and not eaten the food. Now, I'm sick on vacation. It's clearly a cross-contamination level of glutening.

My kid was excited to read that they chips are safe, because we had recently eaten at a Mexican place where they were not. We ordered the nachos and fish tacos. Server was not super friendly, food was good (not amazing), and we felt pretty sure it was safe.

Traveling with a group of 3 gluten free, 1 gf/cf, and one “regular” diner. There were several options on the menu that were gluten free including baked chips instead of fried (cross contamination). Prices a little high-but normal for the touristy area. When ordering dairy free as well, specify NO CHEESE not only on the main dish, but on each side dish. Our dairy free meal came out with cheese sprinkled on the refried beans-we didn’t know to ask to have that cheese held.

This place was safe for celiac, in my experience. The waiter informed us of the shared fryer for the hard shell tacos, but said the chips were safe and so were the corn soft tortillas. Salsa was good and spicy. Chips were nothing special.

The shrimp tacos were pretty unremarkable. 2.5 stars. They professed to be grilled but contained no evidence of the sort. I’d hazard a guess they were boiled. Came with cheese crumbles, shreds of cabbage-like lettuce, an avocado sauce on the side that tasted like tartar sauce, and some rice and beans. I didn’t clean my plate. But they weren’t horrible and the salsa helped make it better.

So 2.5-3 star food experience, but it’s safe for us Celiacs who sometimes have to settle for less, so I gave it 4.

This place is simply amazing! My new all time favorite Sedona restaurant. Food is out of this world. So much flavor. Service was fantastic and they kept the chips coming. Kept the drinks full and I couldn’t be more pleased.

Oaxaca tacos were very tasty and the corn tortillas were so tender that I thought they were flour. They weren’t! Corn chips and salsa were very tasty also!

On their menu they ask you to tell your server about allergies or special diets. Chips are fried in their own fryer. Corn shells available.

Was not impressed with the quality. It’s great they are knowledgeable and have options, but it tasted cheap. If you want high quality good medical food go elsewhere! From the $16 tacos I think $10 was for the view.

Prickly pear margarita and lemonade are great! Atmosphere was good. Felt like we were just paying for the view LOL— which was amazing!

The staff were very knowledgeable! The chips are fried in their own fryer and you can only get the corn tortillas as a soft taco. Our waitress informed me that there is the potential for cross contamination with the hard taco shells.

I got the chicken tacos (soft of course) and they were so big I couldn’t finish! Delicious and very clean tasting.

Jose was an exceptionally kind waiter and helpful with my multiple restrictions. I tried the cactus appetizer (tasty), but I would ask about the seasoning blend the use, evidenced by dustings of it on my plate. The trout there was described on the menu as coated with blue corn flour, but wasn't, and it tasted smoked besides. Not sure why. GF hubby enjoyed the Oaxaca tacos. Black beans are served to GF customers, not refries.

Went here with a group of people. Everything that is gluten free is labeled on the menu. They have baked chips as a GF option, however I was told the house ones were okay since they were made in a separate fryer. Honestly they looked like they came out of a bag. Both my son and I are celiac and ate them with no reactions. We got the pork chili verde with rice and beans and it was delicious! Server was knowledgeable about cross contamination. Friends got guacamole and it comes in a fried flour tortilla, so if you order that mention you need it in a bowl instead. They weren’t impressed with the guacamole either.

Our waiter was new and had no idea. Being the parent to 3 celiac kids for the past 2 years we knew what to ask. So far so good, kids loved the food and the view is amazing but definitely do not be afraid to ask questions and ask to speak to the chef if the waiter doesn't seem knowledgeable.

This was our third time here, and the food has really gone down hill. The chips and salsa were not bad. The salsa was nothing special. The chips are gluten free. I ordered the shrimp tacos on corn tortillas. They were salty and really had no flavor. I don't think we will be visiting the restaurant again. The over priced food was not worth it. Go else where for good gluten free food!

The owner is a dietitian and the menu clearly marks gf options. They have a dedicated fryer, so unlike too many Mexican restaurants these days, YOU CAN EAT THE CHIPS! The staff was really well Informed-- even letting us know the food would take a few minutes longer because they needed to clean the grill!
