    They brought me separate GF chips when I explained I had celiacs and they were sweet in bringing me a bit of salsa on the side. Super yummy tacos and great go to GF dinner. I have gone back several times and never had a reaction. They helped me plan my birthday party there and since they couldn't surprise me with birthday cake because of celiacs they gave me a free drink instead.

    Was very pleased with their options for gf. their gf chips aren't made in house (they reminded me of the ones I buy at the store), but I ant complain. It was nice to be able to eat them in the restaurant (and not have brought them myself ). Tacos were AMAZING!

    I didn't feel well after we ate here and the food wasn't super tasty in general. We tried a few of the tacos and made sure we explained to our waitress that everything needed to be GF, but still ended up with tummy troubles.

    Server was unknowledgeable. We specifically told our server that we had a gluten allergy. Ordered all of our tacos on corn tortillas. We avoided sauces that are known ti contain gluten. We still got sick.

    Knowledgable staff, necessary precautions and modifications are made for Celiac safety. I've always eaten safely as long as I've mentioned my gf requirement and didn't make assumptions about ingredients.

    I have Celiac and have been here numerous times with never a bad experience. As long as you specify your allergy/condition up front and order the GF versions of everything, you'll be taken care of very well. I hope those that left negative reviews will give this place a second try because it is really the best and totally worth it. Possibly my favorite restaurant in Nashville for the combination of Celiac friendliness, price, tastiness, and overall quality. Ok, now I want to have lunch here tomorrow...

    My food was contaminated, despite ordering off their gluten-free menu.

    My family and I found this restaurant when we were in town for my daughter's dance conference. We requested gluten free menus and ordered appetizers. The items we ordered were gluten free - the menu said the chips were gluten free but they were not. I assumed they were and should have double checked with the server. I thought she saw we had gluten free menus when we ordered the apps. Be sure to let the server know right away. After my daughter ate them and found out - she was upset. The manager made it right by bringing out gluten free chips and guacamole. We ordered the sloppy nachos and made sure to ask for it gluten free. It came out and it was not. They had to take it back and make it all over again. There was hardly anything on it then. The damage was already done. My daughter broke out with a bad rash two days later. Margaritas were great but I was extremely disappointed!!

    We used GF app to find this place as well. Food is excellent but most impressive is how friendly and informative everyone is. From the hostess getting us the GF menu, to the waiter patiently answering all questions, to another gal Lauren who came to our table after hearing of an onion allergy to verify what foods were and were not safe.....to the guy who brought our actual food to the table and further explained what all items/sauces were. Hands down THE most informative/friendly restaurant ever. Hubby got the Peruvian roasted chicken and raved about flavor and tenderness. I got the Memphis tacos minus onion and they were super tasty. A little spicy for me but I am a total lightweight on spicy food.

    Very gluten friendly. Also vegan options which are helpful since I try to avoid dairy.

    I used GF to find this place and the review I read became reality. So nice to have some interesting choices off the menu. The jalapeno and corn slaw it's something I'll try to make at home. Great service and attention from the staff.

    I've eaten here at least 6 times and I don't even live in Nashville. They have a separate GF menu (with plenty of option) and a vegan menu (which is great if you can't eat dairy either). The manager on duty almost always swings by the table to tell you that the kitchen was informed and that they'll be using separate cookware/prep area I make your food I'm a very sensitive celiac and have never gotten sick. On top of all that-the food is amazing and reasonably priced.

    They DO have great gluten free options and I've eaten here safely before, but I've also had a bad cross contamination incident. They brought tacos on flour tortillas instead of the corn tortillas I asked for after explaining I had celiac. I explained that they needed to remake them - not just take them off the flour ones and put them on the corn ones, but an entirely new dish. Pretty sure they didn't take it seriously and just did the former. I've avoided since, unfortunately.

    After a horrible experience at another place and cross contamination, I was slightly afraid to eat out. Taco Mamacita went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of! The manager came out and talked to me about the menu, answered all of my questions and made me feel more confident about what I was eating! Love this place!

    SO GOOD!! They have a gluten free menu and a vegan menu. I ordered the Gyro and asked them to substitute the bread part for a soft corn tortilla (gluten free) they put two soft corn tortillas in my order and i ate EVERY crumb! Light, refreshing, didn't weigh me down (don't like to eat heavy at lunch & especially during hot months). THANK YOU TACO MAMACITA!!!

    Salsa Sampler was fantastic, with GF chips of course. I ordered the Chicken Rancheros, they were good. Just wish they had a little more flavor.

    I've been gluten free due to celiacs for almost a year and it's been that long since I have had Mexican food, until Taco Mamacita. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. I could not eat the cheese dip and chips my friends ordered due to the chips and the waiter insisted on bringing me my own cheese dip with specially cut corn tortillas so I wouldn't just be sitting there watching others eat. They also used a different type of tequila in my margarita so it would be gluten free, and made sure to tell me that anyone that touched my food in the kitchen put on fresh gloves before doing so. They were very knowledgable of being gluten free. I felt very comfortable going there, which anyone who has to be gluten free knows is not always the case, and I will definitely be going back.
