Only tortillas have wheat. Advised getting toppings that are served with a utensil rather than grabbed with gloves, and able to get other toppings fresh from the back. Able to get anything in a bowl, chips (dedicated fryer).

I got glutened from eating here. The person serving me seemed to understand when I said I had celiac. Gloves were changed. I only ordered items that were served with spoons/tongs to minimise cross contamination risks. However I still got glutened. I do not recommend eating here if you have celiac.

Perfect for a mid shop stop! Fast service, friendly staff, delicious food. They warned me of a small risk of cross contamination but I watched them make my food - clean gloves, flat top grill wipes down before my corn tortillas were put on. Will definitely return!!

Everything but the flour tortillas are gf. They change gloves and make sure to prepare my meal separate from my husband who isn't gf. I've never gotten sick and eat here often.

Great little taqueria with fresh ingredients. Everything except the flour tortillas is GF; chips are made in a dedicated fryer. I've been twice and the staff were knowledgeable both times, changing gloves, washing hands, and knowing not to heat the GF corn tortillas because of potential cross-contamination. Delicious, safe food that is fast and easy. Yes!

I visit this area often and have been struggling to find a satisfying fast-casual establishment that I can trust. I have found it! Great service. Line attendee listened to my questions and had thorough responses, and even offered to switch her gloves. Great food. Highly recommend!

Steak and carnitas bowls and chips are gluten free, haven’t had a problem in the past.

I ordered from their website and was able to specify a gluten allergy there. I ordered a big bowl with carne asada, white rice, black beans, pineapple hot sauce, sour cream, jack cheese, guacamole, pico, corn and bean salsa, honey lime slaw, and chimi aoli. I also ordered corn tortillas on the side. They were packaged completely separate from the rest of my family's order, and they specified on pickup that they'd been handled separately as well. The food was amazing, the corn tortillas were handmade and delicious (I really dislike corn tortillas generally), and I would absolutely eat there again. I did not have a gluten reaction.

I ordered my meal online and made a note that we had gluten allergies. I happened to show up before it was ready. There was a line and I could see someone preparing my food so I decided to just wait. The person preparing my food didn’t know I was there for the order. She asked another staff member to make the quesadillas I had ordered for my sons (who have no gluten issues) so she didn’t have to touch them. Then someone stopped her in the middle of making my meals to get a side dish to go. When she was done helping them, she changed her gloves before going back to my meal prep.

I was very pleased with the dedication they were showing to limit my exposure to gluten. The food was very good as well (always a bonus)!

I would recommend this establishment to anyone!
