I was able to eat guacamole and chips because they have a dedicated fryer!!

My best friend had the chicken fajitas and they came out with at least 5lbs of chicken with onions and pepper on the plate with homemade tortillas, rice and beans on the side! I had the rib eye tacos and they were amazing and came with tons of meat and a side of rice and beans.

Moses was an amazing server answered all of my questions and was very considerate of my needs. I will be back they were also very considerate of Covid they require masks until eating, take your temperature at the door, social distances tables and were constantly cleaning.

Probably my favorite GF restaurant. Most of the menu is gluten free. I’ve eaten her many times and never had any issues. The food is amazing! The hardest part for me is choosing what to have.

Most of the menu is gluten-free, so there’s less chance of cross contamination. There were many options and our food was great. Our server was also knowledgeable.

Solid Mexican food combined with knowledgeable staff and ... no reaction at all from me so appears to be celiac safe. (I’m pretty sensitive.) Fun atmosphere and good drinks. Wish the waitress had been a tad more friendly but I’m not going to be picky given everything else.

This place is amazing! I'm used to having very few selections when my husband and I go out, so I was pretty excited to find that 99% of their dishes are gluten free! In fact, there were only 3 items on the menu that contained gluten, and they were clearly marked. Chicken enchiladas were so good! Oh, and their tortilla chips are gluten free too!!!

Excellent food and atmosphere. Kids ordered quesadilla and those were so good I could have just ate that for dinner. Celiac aware. All corn tortillas used and only the mole sauce has gluten. No reaction here and waitress was very aware of cross contamination issues

I typically like eating Mexican cuisine at hole in the wall type places but that went out the window once I got diagnosed with celiac and severely damaged villi. This place has good food and I can't wait to go back to try more items. It's more upscale, so don't get shocked at the prices. The major thing here is that I feel safe. They have a dedicated fryer for the chips but the thing that amazed me most is that the menu marked the items that contained gluten...not the other way around! The staff seems knowledgeable about food allergies and will put an allergy alert on your ticket if you let them know....so again, I feel safe eating here. Come here for dinner on a special occassion or for lunch and try the prix fixe menu that is a great deal...or for happy hour for drinks and appetizers. Munch away at the chips and salsa...maybe some guac or ceviche too.

80 percent of the menu is gluten free already. My wife has severe celiac and she was able to order almost everything on the menu without alterations. She did not have any reactions. Food is fantastic and service is just as good. Most Celiac friendly place I have eaten besides a dedicate gluten free establishment. Eat here!!! It’s safe. The staff is very knowledgeable. Trust me. This place is safe and you do not have to think twice. New favorite place in San Diego!!

We've eaten here three times now. Our initial experience was fantastic, as the server went out of the way to make sure everything was gluten free. Note: the chips are NOT gluten free, and are prepared in a shared fryer. Our server instead thoughtfully brought us a tray of veggies. During our next two visits, we had servers who were not as well-trained on gluten free food prep and serving protocols. However, our super sensitive daughter never had a reaction after eating here. The food itself is salty and expensive, but they do make good drinks!

Most things on the menu are GF. Staff understands cross contamination. Food was delicious and I didn't get sick. Ask about the fryers. They have more than one and sometimes the chips are safe, other times not.

Went here for happy hour. The HH menu items that contained gluten had ** next to them. And that was only one: the quesadilla! The empanadas were delicious, and we also ordered tacos. Tuna tartare looked good too. I confirmed that they use a fryer for the chips that is only GF. Swanky place, great menu. I'll be back!
