GF items aren’t marked on the menu. Chips are unsafe and our server seemed unsure about what was safe or not. Felt very uneasy eating here!

I was happy when the manager brought out my meal separately but was not so happy when I immediately felt sick after. The drinks were good but would not eat here again.

Waiter had no idea what Celiac disease or GF really meant. HOWEVER, when I asked to speak to a manager they were quick to point out that their protocol is for the server to inform manager and kitchen staff. Someone (kitchen manager?) sat with me and went through the entire menu, ensuring me that there would not be any cross contamination. Chips are not GF but when they noticed that our table had chips and guacamole (others did not require GF) they promptly brought me a platter of carrot and celery sticks with guacamole. Very Good! I had a chicken taco bowl (no tortilla shell, just in bowl) and it was EXCELLENT! My meal came out first, delivered by the staff that went through the menu with me. I have Celiac Disease and I did not get sick and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I would definitely go back, just make sure to speak to a manager.

About a month or two ago I visited Pink Taco and was told that my food was gluten free and I didn’t have to worry about cross contamination since I’m celiac. A couple hours later I was throwing up. I contacted the restaurant afterwards and was told the manager would give me a call but they never did.

The waitress made me feel very comfortable when we sat down. She knew about cross contamination and what would not be gluten free. However, two hours after dining there I began vomiting profusely as many celiacs do until all of the gluten left my body. Clearly something happened here and it was very disappointing as I had been mislead in to feeling safe.

Not the best experience. I went with my friends and I asked her what they had that was gluten free. She responded with nothing of it’s a food allergy, as my friends had already order it was a bit awkward as essentially she said she could not give me anything on the menu. We came to the conclusion that the taco bowl would be ok if the burrito bowl was removed and it was on a plate. I don’t full know if the food was gf, the chicken looked like it had seasoning which I don’t no if was gf and I’m suspicious of the rice. I think it could have been a better experience but I’m disappointed by the end result.

Enchiladas and tacos are amazing!! They have the best happy hour too. Most queso dips are not gluten free. I am not sure if the chips are in a shared fryer as I didn’t have any, but the menu indicates you can “gluten free yourself” by asking the server.

I ordered their tacos because on their ordering menu online it said they were made with corn tacos. We ordered for take out, after I already eaten some of them I realized they were flour tacos. After calling to make sure they confirmed the info on their website was wrong. My mistake for not double checking but also a crap mistake in their system on their behalf. I don't like to always call into a place and we didn't in this case because I've never had issues with tacos.
