We’re able to cater to me a very sensitive celiac. I ordered fajitas they use gluten free soy for the marinade it was fantastic and they brought out the soy sauce for me to look at. Good service really appreciative.

My husband had cheese and onion enchiladas and I had chicken and lime cilantro taco's. Both were excellent. Anything on menu can be modified to be GF except burritos. Margaritas are very good too Service was knowledgeable and friendly.

The menu doesn’t specify what items are GF. My server said they can make adjustments to almost anything on the menu. I had tacos that were delicious! Their homemade chips and quac were amazing too. I didn’t get sick.

Went last night and was so impressed with how seriously they took celiac prep. Everything was explained. They changed gloves. Manager checked with me frequently. I had the mahi mahi tacos... amazing! Great food, friendly and knowledgable staff. Highly recommend.

First place I’ve been able to have quesadillas at in years! Got the steak ones and they were delicious. The Cesar salad was also very fresh and yummy. Most of their food is or can be made gluten free.

Waitress informed us that everything was gluten free except the flour tortillas now so there is no longer a separate GF menu. We had a great meal!

Good for GF. Chips are fine and pretty much everything can be made GF, including quesadillas which I was excited about! But food itself is really meh/mediocre

Service was horrible. Walked in and asked if they had a gluten free menu. The hostess handed me a "600 calorie or less" menu and when I asked again she handed me the regular menu. Waiter came over a total of 2x, once to take our order and once to give us our check. Food was less than average. I won't be returning.

Best veggie fajitas ever! They (boulder & denver locations) have always been great dealing with all my food allergies and vegan diet. Best margaritas too!

Hadn't been here in years! Was super impressed with staffs knowledge of Celiac Disease. Had a margarita, nachos, chips and salsa, and tacos. Was very tasty and I did not have any reaction and I am a sensitive Celiac. Very exciting since a lot of Mexican places don't have much to offer for Celiacs! Highly recommend the GF Beer battered taco!!

Went here for the first time in a while the other week and was able to have a GF beer battered taco; I was skeptical (as one might be) knowing that batter in general and beer are a combo that could easily cause a glutening, but the server confirmed that both the batter and the beer used in the batter were gluten free. loved the confidence and attention to detail from the staff, and it was great to have an item I rarely can have other places!

I am celiac and had a wonderful experience here, I highly recommend this restaurant. Staff is very knowledgeable, they have a GF menu. The chips and sauces are gluten free, you don’t have to ask for separate chips . As a bonus the fajitas were literally the best fajitas I have ever had . Will be coming back . My daughter is also Celiac, she got enchiladas and did not get sick either.

I have eaten here for many years, and I never had heartburn. I always wondered why. Three years ago I learned I have celiac, and it now makes sense. This by far my favorite restaurant in Boulder. I don’t get heartburn or have inflammation (another celiac symptom). Even chili rellenos are GF. I eat here weekly. BTW, they have amazing margaritas, for those who can have alcoholic drinks. All of their sauces are GF. Just avoid flour tortillas, and it’s safe.

I ordered the queso with corn tortillas. I ordered off the gluten free options and advised that I had celiac. The server assured me he would bring corn tortillas. Needless to say he brought me flour tortillas. After I bit into it I realized it was not corn. The manager apologized and comped it and we immediately left.
