They’ll just randomly switch to flour tortillas without warning

Ordered gluten free burrito. Received my food and asked again if burrito was a corn tortilla. They said yes, but would double check . Came back apologizing that it was a flour tortilla. Apparently they ran of corn tortillas. I learned they do not have a separate area to prep food. Never clear on how the cook thought it was ok to prepare a gf burrito with a four tortilla.

I’ve been here a handful of times and each time my server has been knowledgeable about celiac. Most things on the menu are gluten free except for a few items that are clearly marked as containing gluten. Food and drinks are great, really big selection of tacos. Love this place!

Not celiac friendly. Our server was very rude when we politely asked about our gluten free options. The corn tortillas share a grill with the flour tortillas. And they make the flour tortillas in house so the server told us (very rudely) that flour flies everywhere so there’s nothing safe.

Oh man. So good!! Went here for lunch today. Staff is super knowledgeable. I had the taco plate which came with 2 tacos, beans, and rice. You got to pick from some very yummy tacos. I had carne asada and the carnitas tacos. I'm still drooling. Tacos were great size and definitely filled me up.

I absolutely love this place. I have celiac, and I eat here about once a week and I’ve never gotten sick. All of their tacos except for two are gluten free, and a majority of their menu outside of the tacos are gluten free too. The bar staff is super nice and knowledgeable. My favorite tacos are the catfish, they’re fried and breaded with corn flakes. And they have a gluten free fryer.
