I explained to the waiter that I have Celiac & he was very helpful. I ordered 3 tacos (Grilled Shrimp, carnitas, & brisket) They warmed corn tortillas in a separate pan to avoid cross contamination. The food & salsas were amazing. I definitely will be back.

Not celiac safe! Our server was very knowledgeable, But there’s no telling what goes on in the kitchen if they’re busy. The only 1salad option on the menu is in a taco shell. No dedicated fryer; no gluten free menu. High chance of CC if they’re handling flour tortillas along with corn ones. Not sure if the tortillas are made in house or purchased. Chips are not safe. The place has a great atmosphere and good service and I would go again for the bar and the drinks only. I had steak fajita- meat on a plate with a side of pico de gallo and a side of beans and somehow ended up glutened. Could be the spices used. I would recommend El Gato Negro over this place.

This place was amazing! The chips are not gluten free, but their salsa and tacos are awesome! Waitresses are every knowledgeable on being kitchen friendly with the food, and my daughter didn’t get sick. Was so good, we ended up coming back the next night 😂. (There aren’t many choices in this area for celiacs)

This place was awesome. Almost everything was gluten free. Except the fried items and you can’t have the chips either. They only have one fryer. The flour tortillas and corn tortillas are on the same grill too. But they have a pan to warm the corn tortillas up for no cross contamination. When talking to the waiter he knew what I was talking about and then the owner came out and talked to me also. Great serves. I am very sensitive and I did not get sick. I will be coming back next time in town.

This place is phenomenal! Almost everything on the menu is GF. Stay away from fried items (including chips), but everything else is GF as long as you order with corn tortillas.
