    Great local place! Small but worth the wait for the food and chill atmosphere.

    Gluten wise there was a good bit of choices. Yuca fries were really good with their dipping sauce! Highly recommend those. I feel it was a “safe choice” but the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. It was super hot in there.

    Great nachos. Great tacos (especially the chicken tacos). Outstanding price!

    OBTB has amazing food and really great customer service. I’m kind of sad that there are some negative reviews- I had the opposite experience. We ate here twice on vacation, and loved everything we tried. I had the nachos with fajita veggies each time, and it is SO good. Just a warning- they use soy to season their fajita veggies, but they have a gf soy sauce, so just ask. Our server actually caught that for me the first time we ate there- I’d asked about the chips being gluten free, then went on to order the nachos. I heard him talking to another table about the soy sauce as our food was brought out, so I asked him about it and he said he’d taken care of it and made sure they did my veggies with gf soy sauce. You honestly cannot beat that level of customer service! And the food is just so good. I already cannot wait to go back!!

    Visited this place, and was told by the waitress... "It's self explanatory. You know what you can have." First of all... I don't know if it's dedicated or safe. Only ate there, because I was hungry. Not impressed. Food was just average.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t have the same experience other reviewers had. Waitress knew nothing of cross contamination and wouldn’t talk to the kitchen about it, no matter how many times I asked her to. She insisted it was my job to make my order GF by ordering something GF... and then wouldn’t tell me which meals on the menu were GF. “Oh, most of our menu is gluten free,” she said, and walked away. To make matters worse, the table was dirty and sticky. I didn’t feel like getting sick, so I left without ordering anything. Hopefully this was just an off day for them, but they lost my trust. I won’t be coming back.

    I am absolutely kicking myself for not coming here on previous vacations. OBTB is a small, local operation, and you might be here a while, but the wait is worth it. The food is just spectacular; just about everything on the menu except the burritos and quesadillas is gluten free. Taco fillings are very flavorful and not overly spicy, and you have lots of customization options. The hand-made soft corn tortillas are excellent and filling. I'd definitely come back here.
