Staff is well informed on what is safe and what isn’t, and have a list of items taped to the register. Very accommodating and have many options that are GF. Highly recommend
The shredded chicken isn’t GF but the grilled chicken is along with all the other meats!
The staff is always helpful and friendly! Their chips and chicken are not GF, but they have GF corn tortillas that are good for the tacos! Also the bowls are always great.
COVID is still amongst us so I wasn’t able to see the food preparation process but I was assisted by an employee who was well informed about items on the menu that are and are not gluten free. The employee that assisted me was very helpful and knowledgeable.

People with celiac can choose between a salad or burrito bowl which is basically the burrito with no wrap. Most of the meats are GF with the exception of the chicken, tuna, and fried something or other. I ordered the shrimp which they said is cooked with salt and paper. The chips are not gluten free. What I like is that you can pick any additions you would like (e.g., onion, cheese, lettuce,...) so the items are customizable. Our total bill was about $56 for two burritos, which each come with two sides and chips, nachos with chicken, and the burrito bowl with shrimp. I of course added on the sangria which was excellent and everyone else has regular fountain drinks. The establishment is clean, even the outside deck area. Servers were very pleasant. The food is good and can be made as simple as you wish. Everyone in my party agreed that it was not the best Mexican food but it is good and reasonably priced. I will likely return, particularly because of the nice staff. I also like the location and being able to walk down the street to window shop after eating.

Most of the tacos are gluten free on corn tortillas. Be aware of words like marinated (so avoid the chicken) and I avoided the tuna just to be sure I didn’t ingest any soy (soy sauce with gluten-that is). I’m pretty sensitive and the chips caused no issue. Queso, tomatillo salsa and margs were great too!
Excellent service. Friendly staff. Prices a little high.
This was an excellent restaurant! We asked a few questions and when the person we asked wasn’t sure, she immediately found plenty of knowledgeable people including the cooks of course. Chips are in a dedicated fryer so they are safe. They seemed to exercise caution. On top of that—it was just delicious!!
The staff was very helpful. They told me what I should avoid like the chips (shared fryer at that location) and the chicken (which is marinated in beer). I had a burrito bowl with steak and some corn tortillas on the side. They noted on the ticket that I had a gluten allergy to flag it to the kitchen for preparation.
Everything is gluten free except the chicken (and flour tortillas of course)!!! That includes the nachos, chips, tacos and they are all yummy! I have been to several locations around the state and they are usually very helpful. I love that you can get queso or guacamole as a side. They have several kinds of margaritas and they are very good. So glad that Taco Mama came to Mobile!
GF fresh chips and Queso!!! There are only a few things that aren’t GF (flour tortillas (but they have corn which are safe), chicken bc its beer braised, fried fish, and mac’n’cheese. 10/10 on food, service, and atmosphere! It’s more fast-casual. You don’t have a dedicated waitress, you order at a register then they bring it to you but there’s ton of staff walking around asking if you need anything. Just tell them you are Celiac or GF when you order - if you have celiac or an allergy and tell them they will take extra precautions and change gloves! I recommend shrimp tacos w lettuce, chipotle ranch, corn, avocado and chips and Queso 😋
Staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free options. You can get tacos in either soft corn tortillas or crispy. The beef, steak, and grilled chicken are all gluten free. The regular chicken is not because it’s marinated in beer. Chips are safe to eat as is the queso. I’ve eaten here many times and never had an issue. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
I came here under the impression that they were gluten free. The staff didn't really know if their kitchen was safe or not, but they asked around and told me that they had gluten free options. I got a burrito bowl with no chips or anything suspicious. I got glutened pretty badly. I'm not sure what ingredient did it. The food tasted good, though!
I'm not celiac but I had no issues. Staff knowledgeable and helped me choose my meat (not all are GF). Got a taco platter with grilled chicken and siracha coleslaw. Super tasty! Spicy! Loved it!
The staff is knowledgeable about what ingredients are gf and which aren’t, and will let you know when you’re building your taco/burrito/bowl/etc. The menu has a build-your-own section that is totally customisable so you can avoid any gluten ingredients. Their chips are fried in a separate fryer and don’t have gluten.
Staff knew what was celiac safe. Don't eat the chips. Basically you're stuck with a burrito bowl to keep things simple. Could get a corn tortilla taco or something. However, we went there a second time this week and my husband got very sick. We didn't realize refried beans could contain bullion and therefore gluten. Staff must not have known either, that's the only thing that could have contaminated him. He got a bowl with rice, chicken (staff said chicken is safe), cheese, cilantro, and refried beans. Took my 5 star rating down to 4 because of the Bean issue. :/
I've been to this Taco Mama's, and it's okay. My brother works at one owned by the creator of the company. The shredded chicken and barbacoa are not gf. The corn tortillas are safe, however there is a high risk of cross contamination here. Be careful, and communicate well with whoever is taking your order!
The staff is very friendly and kind and the gf options were good, BUT the food tasted like I could have made it myself in my own kitchen, it wasn't anything special. Its still nice to have a place to eat out safely at though.
The staff is very friendly and knowledge about contamination concerns, plus the food is delicious! I visited several times during my week in Huntsville. Tuesday are half price margaritas!
Restaurant offers broad variety of freshly prepared Mexican (TexMex) food with a knowledgeable staff who quickly identified the few non-GF items. My wife (gluten- and dairy-free) was able to have totally compliant nachos for first time in over a year. She was so impressed with the place that we will be going back soon. Other members of party had other menu items that were just as flavorful and well seasoned. An outstanding new restaurant in Huntsville!!
