G R O S S owner of this Franchise location hires the filthiest of people. They don't wear hair nets on long hair or beards, ewwwww. I seen one guy stroking his beard while preparing food, with no gloves. One persons apron had dried up layers of old food stains, and he kept sniffling his nose to stop the mucous from running out. Another kept scratching his head while taking orders, then looking into the bags dumping all his head lice onto the food. If they wear gloves, they keep the same gloves on throughout the day, touching everything, then putting on the food. Don't trust they are not spitting on the food or snorting bugars on your tater tots. One former employee told me they all take turns hockin' loogies into the chicken chili soup, when they're pissed of at the Manager, which is everyday. Don't get food at this place, you'll get food poisoning from all the bacteria. I wouldn't doubt there's fecal matter in the refried beans.

I usually get the taco salad and ask to have them change their gloves. This time, the person at the counter told one girl in the back to change her gloves, but another person ended up making me my salad. I was very sick about 20 mins later. I should have known when they gave me the chips and I said I didn’t want them.

The cashier was familiar with gluten allergies. He informed us that they use a shared fryer for both wheat and corn tortillas and suggested I stick with the Baja tacos since they are not fried. Gluten friendly items are clearly marked on the menu board.

Why did people here saying that it's celiac safe? I saw the review and walked into the restaurant and asked them if they have separate fryer for celiac safe, the guy told us that they're NOT celiac friendly. I did brought NEMA tester and the staff said that there's no need to test it because it is CROSSED CONTAMINATED and will not pass my NEMA test. However, they do have gluten free menus but it's crossed contaminate. They told us DON'T EAT HERE if we have CELIAC DISEASE. So we left. I would give 5 star for the staff and the excellent customer service.

This place is fantastic! I rarely trust fast food but this place is different. They have a dedicated prep area as well as frier for Tacos. All western Washington Taco times have a dedicated frier. The owner himself came out and talked to us about their safety protocols and thanked us for supporting his small business. Would go there any time!

Yes!! So yummy. If you’re in the mood for Taco Bell, but not in the mood for a gluten induced puke 👍🏼 so yummy. I ordered the ground beef nachos and the beef crispy tacos. Really good, no reaction. I’m not celiac but very sensitive to gluten. I have a reaction within the first few bites if there is even cross contamination present. Really good Tex mex. we will be back

Many options, marked “gluten friendly” on menu
