Had an amazing experience here, my server was extremely knowledgeable about Celiac and reassured me when my dish arrived that it was safe. Lots of GF options and if you have Celiac or an allergy the head chef will make your meal separate! Ate the chicken and steak tacos and the chips (fried in dedicated fryer!!)

Felt safe (Celiac). Waitress went out of her way to make sure the food was prepared safe. They are knowledgeable and helpful. We would definitely dine here again.

This place is very knowledgeable, and menu marks what is GF. Chips are gluten free and waiter went to back and read the bag for me. I would 100% go back

Have gone here twice while on vacation. Two separate trips. First time was scary and second time still not good

This place is really cool. Great atmosphere. But the staffing isn’t great. First time I went, I told the waitress before ordering obviously about my allergy & asked for suggestions. She wasn’t helpful but they do have Gf marked on the menu. Ordered a variety of tacos and rice & beans.

Order took forever. Then.. When the order came out, the tacos were on flour tortillas!The manager I think brought them out and so I grabbed him again and asked what kind of tortilla it was, and he ensured it was flour. Ugh. I told him my allergy and he went to repeats another plate for me.

I then told the waitress who finally came back to the table, she had no care in the world.

Second time a few days ago I ordered a GF item ans again was clear about the allergy. When I got my order, it was in fact gf but damn they burnt the pork so badly it was like completely black and dry.

I did not get a reaction but I will not be going back for sure.

If you want delicious Mexican this is the place. Restaurant is really good about making sure food is safe. Went twice this week and did not have any reaction. GF items are marked and waitress made sure kitchen marked plate as an allergy. (Chips are not gluten free but they do have veggies!)

The gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. The manager sat us and I asked him right away about the gluten free options. He was extremely knowledgeable. The chips are made in a separate fryer. The chips come seasoned or unseasoned and the seasoning is made in a facility that processes wheat ingredients. I was so suprised with his knowledge. I was told they informed the waitstaff and the chef. I got the traditional carnitas tacos which were came on a handmade corn tortilla. We also got the guacamole as an appetizer. Definately recommend if you have Celiac disease or a gluten allergy.

The food here is soooo good. They were able to accommodate my husband’s gluten and dairy sensitivities with multiple options. They have options marked on the menu and the very knowledgeable waiter pointed out other menu items they could make GF. The gave homemade GF corn tortillas and the can use those to make a number if menu items GF that aren’t listed that way in the menu. Their chips are GF and cooked in a dedicated fryer.

I give an A for effort, but an F on follow through. Called ahead, gave proper intro to celiac and then was served a flour tortilla. Way to pricey to not be able to trust. I would pay anything for compliance.

When I asked about what would be safest for a celiac for GF options, the waitress went to check with the cook staff and came back and was willing to make the Enchiladas as one beef and one chicken since I couldn't decide. The manager brought my food out, with it labeled as GF with a sticker throughout the prep because she said, "we take allergies very seriously here". She came back to check in to make sure everything tasted right. Highly recommend, no issues with cross-contamination and a great price for the quality of food!

I asked about the chips and salsa and they said it was gluten free , fried in a different frier. Well I ordered it, ate it and got super sick and had to leave without eating the dinner. Definitely had gluten or was cross contaminated.

I told the waitress I was feeling very sick and asked for my bill and she took her sweet time bringing it back.

I will not eat there again.

I am gluten and dairy intolerant. I asked for the tacos without cheese and they put cheese on it. When I asked if they could prepare it again they brought out the same tacos that had been "brushed off" and you could still see pieces of cheese in it. I would not recommend this restaurant.

The food is great. I'd love to see a dedicated gluten free menu along with official statements on cross contamination policies. After speaking with the manager and our waiter I felt comfortable enough to eat here and did not have a celiac reaction to the food. The fryers for the chips are dedicated. Great place that I would love to see engage the gluten free community a bit more.

We came here late at night for tacos and guacamole - SO GOOD!!! The tortilla chips and taco shells are fried in a dedicated fryer and they can make an excellent gf margarita! They prep everything on the 2nd floor 24 hours a day and can tell you everything that you can have! We had the guacamole, margaritas, and pork and beef tacos. The meat was tender and flavorful with none of that day-old crockpot flavor you get with some places and the salsa was as good as any I've had while living in the southwest! Service was friendly and helpful from the bar staff and we loved it!
