Good food, was not wanting to do bowl and always worry about corn tortillas being fully GF...staff was very helpful and ran through GF options, chose carnitas tacos and they were very good. Good amount of food; two nice-sized tacos and a side of black beans and rice.
For awhile the food was awesome, the staff was great, and we loved having a safe place to eat. However, something has changed. We were told that if they were "busy" they would use the "dedicated" fryer for unsafe items. I was so sad to lose this place, we used to visit a couple of times a month.
The menu has items marked gluten-free, but when I told them I was Celiac, the waitress came back out and said they could not accommodate me because they could not control cross-contamination. I had asked if the fryer was dedicated, and she had said yes. When I told her I had Celiac, that was the end of the meal. We were not able to order, despite the menu being marked as to what is gluten-free, and despite a sign as you walk into the restaurant advertising gluten-free tamales. Not safe. Also not proper advertising.
Staff seemed confused about whether chips were in fact gluten free and cooked in gluten free fryer. The cook said yes they were. I had no reaction, so I guess they’re safe. Tacos were really good and gluten free items well labeled on menu. They had a good selection. The atmosphere is very casual and kinda noisy.
The glowing reviews about how celiac friendly this restaurant is must be old. The manager was decently aware (not server staff) so ordered with hesitation. Beyond that the food and atmosphere were pretty bad. Won’t ever be returning.
A very casual atmosphere, kind of noisy . The friendly staff was helpful, and checked with the kitchen to assure me what was gluten free. No reactions. The carne aside tacos were very good. they told me the chips were fried in a dedicated frier, Ihad no reactions, so hooray.
They have a lot of options. Nice staff, great concept for a restraunt. The food was really good I had the chicken stuffed tamale. Everything had a little bit of spice but not to spicy. Will definitely be back.
first time was great, second time not so much (brought me fried onion rings on my buger) and got irritated that she couldnt just pick them off and had to remake it. third time was horrible. never got sick. but I had to wait 30 mins after everyone got their food and ate for mine :(
Love this restaurant! While the food is delicious, what makes me love this place is the wonderful people who staff it. I'm also extremely lactose intolerant, and one evening my food came with cheese, they apologized and I quickly had a new plate of food, only to see bits and frags of cheese. The waitress was furious with the kitchen and stormed off. It turns out the cilantro had cheese dropped in it, so they changed the cilantro out for fresh, and I had a safe meal. Nearly everything on this menu is already GF!
This is the same owner as El Charro and my understanding is someone in the family has celiac-so they are great! Now serving Udis buns, chicken tortilla soup is amazing, as is the chicken sandwich & rice bowls. They even serve gf chicken tenders- the only in town that I know of. They use corn breading so you don't even have to order it different from anyone else and can share! One of the chefs is amazing and he always comes out and personally delivers my food and tells me it's gluten free (not because he knows me or anything, just because I say I'm celiac). I feel safer at the speedway location than Oracle, but I think that's because it was the original and staff just seems more knowledgeable and friendly. I never really go to the oracle location because of this.
we frequent this restaurant, I LOVE the grilled fish tacos, they even have apps that are gfree! I would highly recommend this place! I always ask lots of questions and the staff is knowledgeable and are happy to ask the kitchen when they don't know!!!
quirky place but lots of fun! don't be fooled by the macho exterior. it is a very fam friendly place. they have a real gf menu, tons of taco choices and even chicken strips on the kids menu--a rare and very cool thing for us. we have a celiac 3 year old. great find. made us feel almost normal and a little bit cool again. we will definitely go back.
