Layover in Houston caused me to stop here, and it was fantastic! Cashier was super knowledgeable and provided me with info about cross contamination without me asking. She told manager and got cook staff to change gloves. Food was great.

They have a GF menu! GF Chips are baked, so they’re pretty dry. Next time I’ll just take my own chips to eat my guacamole with.

Last week I traveled thru Houston and ate here. It was great. The staff I talked to was very knowledgeable and concerned for people with gluten issues. During both visits the staff told me exactly what I could order and not get sick. They were correct. I had chicken taco with corn tortilla with beans and rice. Tasted good. No issues afterward.

I will return as a customer and recommend to a friend.

4 stars only because there is just one selection. The food was great. The only option is the soft taco platter with corn tortillas, shredded chicken or ground beef. Served with rice and beans.

I had the shredded chicken. It was delicious and causes no reaction. The cashier was actually very knowledgeable. She seemed very young, so I was impressed that she knew about the risks of cross contamination and hidden ingredients.

It's hard to find truely gluten free food at the airport, but this little counter service restaurant in Terminal E at IAH is wonderful.

Order at the counter place. Person at counter was really knowledgable (no fajitas since have soy sauce). Shredded chicken tacos were good.

In terminal E at IAH airport. Staff is knowledgable about GF and food is prepared in a separate space. Only one GF option though- soft taco platter (served with corn tortillas); beef and chicken are both GF as are the rice and beans.

Fantastic experience all around. There’s a gluten free menu, and staff are trained to grab a manager to speak with you as soon as you mention any food allergy. The managers are extremely knowledgeable about ingredients and safety, and can accommodate multiple allergies and restrictions. Great Tex-Mex, and giant margaritas!

Manager and waiter were fantastic. Very knowledgeable. Got the baked chips which my son loves. They even accommodated us on Fajita Wednesday (a chicken and steak combo), but were happy to serve the meats on separate skillets to avoid cross contamination so I could eat steak and my celiac son could enjoy the chicken. Definitely coming back here again.

We just had dinner here. Luis and his sister who's name I didn't get could not have been more helpful. They informed the kitchen, brought separate gluten free chips for my husband, just in case of cross contamination they have sealed bags of gluten free chips. Checked twice with the kitchen to make sure everything was gluten free. The food was excellent, they were very knowledgable and fun to talk to. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant!
