Used to be really good about cross-contamination, but are no longer safe. They expanded the menu to have many more flour tortillas instead of just the one. Would no longer recommend for celiac. Sad because it was really tasty.

Went based on recommendations here - not only did the person taking orders have no idea what was gf, neither did the TWO cooks preparing the food. We left & walked half a block to an AMAZING place where all but a few sides are GF.

Asked several questions about the gluten free menu options and told them I had celiac. I ordered corn tortillas, and realized halfway through one taco they had given me flour. I didn’t receive and apology or refund. They remade one on corn but I did not feel comfortable eating it.

They are gluten free "friendly", but not at all concerned about doing anything to avoid cross contamination. All flour & corn tortillas are cooked on same grill.

Hard to leave a star rating since I wasn't able to eat here. I was disappointed to find out they don't take any precautions for cross contamination. The girl taking orders explained they cook everything on the same surface and if you have celiac, to eat with caution. So I decided to pass...too bad! I've heard it's good.

Staff is awesome. They know exactly what to do for gluten free orders. Unfortunately, the food was not very tasty. It was basic taste-less tacos.

This is right next to ASU’s campus. Fun ambiance. Good outdoor patio/bar space. Large TVs with sports on. Came here on a Saturday afternoon during a college football game. It wasn’t very busy so keep that in mind as the service I got may differ if it were slammed. Ordered at the bar and the bartender was friendly and helpful. He for out the allergy chart to confirm correct information. All tacos except the ones with fried meat can be made GF on corn tortillas. After I ordered the bartender went to the kitchen to tell them to be sure to clean the grill, change gloves, etc. When they brought the food out they said they put it in a separate pan so it shouldn’t have touched anything. Had the Green Street and Rusty tacos (both pork). They were delicious. They have breakfast tacos served all day. Also had a prickly pear margarita on the rocks. Didn’t get sick. Would eat here again.

I just ate here for the first time. I have celiac and typically react with 15-20 minutes if something contains gluten. I’m sitting here an hour later happy as a clam and full of DELICIOUS tacos!

Manager was extremely knowledgable about all things gluten free! He asked questions regarding my specific needs and made everything separately.
