    Food was excellent and GF listed on the menu, but price is wrong even as listed on their menu. 3 tacos for $16 should already be rated at least 2 $$. Then they tack on a 4% surcharge for the whole bill, very sneaky move. Can't recommend it because the experience left a bad taste in my mouth.

    The staff was knowledgeable of GF items. The food was fantastic! I had the tacos (blue corn) octopus, carnita & mushroom. All unique and full of flavor. I did not have the corn chips as they are fried offsite and they couldn’t confirm if they were GF, but said they should be. So, CC is a risk. The mango brûlée cheesecake was amazing and also GF! Highly recommended.

    This place is just ok. I told the waitress that I have celiac and she wrote it down but didn’t really seem like she knew what that was. I had the carnitas tacos which were alright and I did not get sick. Nothing out of this world. It’s a chain restaurant and expensive. I only ate here once. There are better places to dine GF in San Diego.

    Get the cactus & zucchini taco. I asked them to change their gloves and they were great.

    I ate here twice while nearby at a conference. The first day I had tacos and they were delicious and no problems with GF. The next day I ordered a salad to go and it made me a little sick, plus it was a pathetic salad anyway. So I recommend you just stick to tacos.

    Had the chicken tacos - no issues. Very impressed. Drinks were great although pricey. Server made a note to the chef that I was extremely sensitive. Will definitely go back.

    Good food, got a little sick afterward. Not sure if it was from the food or just eating too much. Good service, good knowledge but not dedicated space.

    One of the best places I ate at while in San Diego. We ordered a plate of 3 street tacos. Fresh made corn tortillas. Only three types were gf but clearly marked. (carnitas, chicken, and cactus/zucchini) Chips and salsa were addictive and unique. Definitely pricey. I didn't enjoy the grilled corn side.

    Mainly corn based options make this place "wheat free" not sure about gluten free. Was able to make my own wraps- chicken, avocado, lettuce. Not bad. Questionable kitchen though. No issues after eating.

    We went for happy hour. The gf items are clearly marked and the chips are the only thing that is fried so no cross-contamination. The tacos are small and plain but good. I recommend the carnitas. I'm giving this 4 stars for the price. Worth going for happy hour but full price is expensive for the amount that you get. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful and able to tell me how things were prepared to avoid any cc. I'm usually very sensitive and waited 48 hours to post a review to make sure I didn't have any symptoms. Overall good experience. Parking is $4 for 3 hours so we walked around Seaport Village after we ate.

    After explaining to the waiter that I had celiac. He assured me the chef had a gluten intolerance and was extra careful. Clearly not careful enough because I was sick the rest of the afternoon. The food was tasty but definitely not worth it.

    This is Puesto's second location in San Diego. The staff is great about making sure your order is prepared in a form to avoid cross contamination with your food allergies and intolerances. I eat here regularly, the menu is properly labeled with lots of gluten free options. I've never been glutened here before and love how fresh all the ingredients are for each menu item.
