Had the build your own burrito bowl with the barbacoa braised beef, was full of flavor, the meet was tender and the toppings were delicious. The young lady at the counter was very helpful. She knew what I could and could not have. It was enough food for two meals but I ate the whole thing. Would highly recommend this place if you like Mexican food!

My husband worked with the restaurant to ensure my takeout order would be GF and DF. My chicken bowl was delicious and had quite a kick. My spice tolerance is high given I'm used to Denver salsa. Kudos there. The chips were subpar and stale. I did not get sick, so this is another win for Auburn.

I went with my mom while it was busy. We got nachos. We are both celiac, and neither of us got sick. I don't know what allergy precautions they take, but the only things that arent safe are soft tortillas and a couple of minor things that I don't remember.

This place is awesome! The majority of their food is GF. Their chips are fried separately. Eaten here many times and have never gotten sick

Have had some really great experiences here as a Celiac student at UA. Each time I go, I get a beef burrito bowl and fill it with whatever toppings I want. Staff is very knowledgeable - just let them know you have a severe gluten allergy and they’ve always marked it for me. One time, despite the line being out the door, the guy taking my order walked to the back kitchen himself and pointed my order out to the people making it just so they knew it was supposed to be GF. Never had an issue here and it’s so awesome to be able to eat Mexican!!!

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 got a bowl with beef and lots of sides. They also noticed I didn’t get any dairy and let me know that the guac had dairy! Servers were very helpful in answering what had gluten.
