My 12 year old and I are celiac. Although this restuarant has a gluten free menu, all items are prepared on shared equipment. Our server told us "to just have a salad." At that point, my husband (gluten eater) said "Let's go." We did not eat here and sadly cannot recommend.
I went for lunch Saturday and spoke with the manager and the chef regarding the recent reviews identifying Celiac safety experiences. I reiterated how important it is that when a person self-identifies as having Celiac, the entire staff needs to follow through or they need to tell the diner they can't ensure their GF menu is accurate and the kitchen is safe. To their credit, both the manager and chef listened and expressed concern as they want to serve folks with true dietary restrictions such as those of us with CD. I did have a tasty Rueben on a corn tortilla. I will return when I'm back in Taos as I ate here twice last year with no problems. As many of us do, I remind restaurants that the CD person typically chooses the restaurant and the rest of the party is usually ordering from the main menu.
Not Safe!!! They have a gf menu and the staff is knowledgeable BUT the kitchen does not honor gf. My salad was served with toast and my burger had bun bits on the underside and so did the lettuce garnish. After discovering the breach there was no way I was going to trust that the sweet potato fries were gf.
Three stars only due to minimal options. Because of cross contamination some things on the gluten free menu were off limits for me. I am Celiac and dairy free and really on had a few things (salads, chicken tacos) to choose from. The tacos were delicious and the staff was nice, just not the absolute best option in town.
Be careful of their GF menu. I found a flaw in it. Their spicy Hawaiian is NOT GF. It has a teriyaki glaze. I was concerned so I asked. Behold it was not GF teriyaki. I told them they need to take it off the menu. Just wanted to give everybody a heads up.
