Pure Taqueria is one of my favorite dinner staples. They have a great menu with several gluten free options. They have just recently dedicated a fryer to the chips and they taste fantastic, so you no longer have to pay an extra fee for the GF chips. You can also eat the guacamole and salsa safely. I regularly get their chicken/steak fajitas, but they also have a few rice based dishes that are also gluten free. I sometimes get their cazuela bowl and you can also eat their tacos. All around great establishment with a solid selection of GF items.

The menu has recently changed and the chips are NOT gluten free and cannot be made gluten free although it’s labeled GF available on the menu. The options are EXTREMELY limited now. Sad, this used to be one of my favorite places!

Corn tortillas. GF marked (but ask because not everything is accurate) chips fried in same fryer now. Very disappointing!

Great Mexican food with a nice variety of gluten free options clearly marked on the menu. They have gluten free appetizers too! I told our server that I have celiac disease & I was very impressed that when another staff member put tortilla chips on our table, she came right over & told me that they had shared a frier with gluten items & I shouldn't eat them. I had no issues with the food & felt comfortable that the gluten free items were safe for me.

ASK FOR THE TACO SHELLS TO BE HEATED SEPARATELY FROM THE FLOUR ONES! I got sick repeatedly here and finally learned their taco shells are all heated on the same surface. They were like, "nobody has ever asked about that!" Come on celiacs!

Really good food, and easy to read GF menu. Not a 100% GF restaurant, but they do a great job.

Love this place! I had the Ceviche as an app and it was enormous, plenty to share or eat as a main course. I also ordered the camarones a la parilla which is grilled shrimp over corn cakes. AMAZING! Wish they were near my home town.

I have been here a few times and I will not return after my last visit. I found noodles within my gluten free bowl and I specifically asked the kitchen to be careful about cross contamination. If a mistake like this can happen they are not taking gluten free seriously for people with celiac disease. It is not worth the risk eating here.

Our server was training and the person training them was no where to be found. My food was nasty at best. I had fish tacos. It was a whole tilapia filet thrown into a corn tortilla. The whole thing was soggy. I went next door and got a burger after my table finished.

PURE has both GF and gluten-containing chips. When we arrived, I explained to the waiter that my daughter had celiac and we would need the GF chips. Without our knowledge, we were served the chips with gluten, and my child had a terrible reaction afterwards. It makes me wonder about the other precautions he told me they would take with her good.
