delicious food. only chose gluten-free options, as they were clearly marked on the menu, (ceviche, drool), and the portions were a nice, decent, size. I'm writing this review the day after so I can say with certainty that I did not get sick. even with delivery, seems like the quality I read about is still great

We have been here a few times, some with my son who has celiac disease. He absolutely loves it here! So much of the ingredients in Mexican foods are gluten-free naturally, but here they make sure to keep a dedicate fryer so that all of the tortilla chips are safe! (I hope that my son will get to a point where he's happy to eat a salad with chicken but he's still young and wants chips & salsa when he has Mexican food.) Menu items are marked, my son has not been glutened and I would recommend this to others with celiac disease or any health reasons for avoiding gluten.

Since their options are naturally GF, they all taste the same! It's nice when items don't need to be modified so that your dish isn't smaller or different.

GF options are marked on the menu clearly. Had the mushroom tacos because it was basically the only veg and GF option available (delicious). Guacamole was $15 which I found absurd. Chips and salsa were also GF, I was told by the server that they have a dedicated fryer for the chips.

Food was excellent! Our waiter was very helpful & guided me to great gluten free options. GF meals clearly stated on their regular menu. Had the queso fundido & pollo adobo tacos al carbon, which I HIGHLY recommend. Saw many tables around us order the table-side guacamole & it looked delicious!

I’ve been here several times and have never gotten sick. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They even fry their corn chips in separate fryers. I will definitely go back again.

Gluten free options were clearly marked on the menu. Corn tortillas were delicious. Chips are also gluten free. I had the brunch and the breakfast tacos with potatoes were good. Portions were reasonable. Although I'm from Texas so I expected a little bit of a bigger size plate, but I realize this is NJ not TX.

Large GF menu, hard not to find something. Housemade corn tortillas and GF chips for complementary salsa. Fresh guacamole made to order. Solid choice for modern chain.

One if my favorite go-to places when I'm shopping. I have never had an issue. They do have a separate gluten free menu. The enchiladas are great, I would also recommend trying the elotes! Empanadas and flautas are good too. Anything fried has a separate fryer. Corn chips are made in house and safe to eat.

Excellent food! Tortillas are safe and they make guac right in front of you so you know exactly what's going into it. I've eaten here a few times already with no issues at all.

Nice options with many items naturally gluten free. I wish the wait staff was a little more confident in their answers when we asked questions, but in the end our very sensitive celiac son had no ill effects after eating there.

Excellent gluten free menu! I don't feel like I have to miss out on anything when I dine here. Love the atmosphere, food, drinks ... Just don't go on a weekend night, unless you have time to wait for a table.... can get very busy, but for good reason! Will be back soon and often.

I loved my experience here! I went because I was in the area and saw all the other great reviews of this place on this app and it lived up to the expectations. So many gf options, I had chips and salsa as well as tortilla soup and a frozen margarita. I have celiac and I had no issues at all of any kind and the server made it clear that they understood I was gluten free. Great place!! Will probably return!

I had a wonderful experience ordering online from here. I was able to write a note saying I had Celiac disease and needed everything to be gluten free. Once I placed the order, the chef from the restaurant called me to tell me that she would take all necessary precautions. She told me cross contamination was limited (they have a dedicated gf fryer to their chips and tortillas). They included a handwritten note that specified that my meal was 100% gluten free. I would definitely eat here again and recommend it to others!

The waitress was very knowledgeable about what was gluten free and what happens in the kitchen. My wife is hypersensitive to cross contamination. We had the chips and salsa. The waitress explained the chips are fried in a different fryer. It was the best Mexican restaurant I have ever eaten at. Definitely will be revisiting.

Safe for celiacs. There are many gluten free dishes which are not listed as such on the online menu. The chips and salsa are safe too. You need to make a reservation if you’re going before curtain time

Based on previous reviews I was looking forward to eating here because I’m from out of town. However, I brought my Nima Sensor just in case. The sensor saved my butt cause my test result was GLUTEN FOUND. I spoke to the manager showing him my result and when speaking to the chef he realized that they heat gf tortillas on the same burner as flour 😱 very glad I tested the food prior to eating even with the glowing reviews. I’ve had diagnosed celiac disease for 6 months now so this would have been awful had I just eaten the meal. The manager gave me the meal for free and made sure the replacement meal was made safely. Waiting to see if I have a reaction later. If I do I will definitely post on here.
