    Sorry, but I was 'glutoned'. Really not surprised as the kitchen is frenetic and they mix gluten with gluten free products. I'm very, very sensitive, so probably cross-contamination. Food was good though.

    I had the swordfish (which was amazing) and it took a long time. The cook came out to explain they took so long to ensure they cleaned and cooked it properly and then apologized. Then comped it which they absolutely did not have to do. Really great experience.

    Amazing amazing amazing amazing!!!!!! Food was out of this world good. Our service was outstanding and they even made custom order drinks (pineapple mojito vs reg one) which turned out to be the best I've ever had. Tacos are small street sized (kind of over priced) but the bowl only $2 more was a hearty size. Tons of GF options marked on the menu. Ate here with 3 diagnosed celiac people and all 3 were thrilled. Will be back for sure!

    Very good. The pork and chicken GF tacos were delicious. Bring your non-GF friends, my vegetarian wife loved the cactus taco. You MUST get the velvet cake.

    I'm so glad I found this restaurant, thanks to Find Me Gluten Free App. It never seems to disappoint. They had many gluten free options. Their chips, salsas and guacamole are all fresh, made in house. Tacos are fresh, full of flavor and excitement. My favorite taco was Lamb Barbacoa. Their rice is really good too. Lots of choices of margaritas and different tequilas. I would greatly recommend. Also, make a reservation, as it's very popular, and tends to get crowded in the evening.

    I discovered Puesto about a year ago, and now the restaurant has two locations in San Diego. The menu is clearly labeled with lots of gluten free options. They offer plenty of gluten free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks too. Puesto especially has a large variety of tequila options. My personal must have drink each time I go to any Puesto location is the frozen horchata with cinnamon on top. I like to think of the frozen horchata drink as a Mexican Milkshake. It's absolutely delicious! If you'd like they can make it into a rum-chata by adding a shot or two of a rum of your choice.

    wanted to eat at this restaurant, but no GF menu and host seemed very iffy on what would be possible, made me too nervous to eat there

    The fresh corn tortillas are to die for. The GF options are labeled on the menu board and staff are knowledgeable. They will change their gloves without giving a funny look and make sure not to heat your tortillas on the grill. You can get the bowl and an order of tortillas if you want to create your own tacos. DELICIOUS!

    Awesome place and much better than Chipotle. They mark everything that is gluten-free on their menu boards the staff is very knowledgeable.
