Lots of options including churros! Husband is celiac and didn’t get glutened. It is an order and sit kind of place but very pretty. The person that took our order was very knowledgeable.

First time here… menus is clearly marked GF and has vegan options too. Delish Strawberry 🍓 Margarita… such a refreshing delight!

I had the Guiltless Quesadilla with chicken Tinga on a GF (coconut flower) tortilla. So delicious!!

And we ordered GF churro bites!! 🤤 No words! It’s delicious! Caramel dipping Sauce.

I must have had a cross contamination experience because I got pretty sick. 😭 ordered the tacos, guac, plantain chips. I have eaten here before and was fine so I guess I just need to mention every time that I’m celiac for extra caution to be taken.

So yummy! Nearly their entire menu is gf and is marked well. The tacos and chips were delicious! They also had waffle churro bites that were so good we ordered 3 of them! Even the non-gf people loved the gf food!

Most of the menu if not All is gluten free with lots of vegan and dairy free options. The food is very tasty. I tried a bowl and my daughter had a quesadilla, both were great. We also tried the churros and they were good, but a little too sweet for my taste. I was so glad to try this place.

I found GF battered fish tacos and am in heaven! Even my husband (not GF) thought the tacos were incredible. They also have GF chips, plus tons of other options. I will be going back!

Ate here and it was delicious, and I had no issues.

We had a variety of tacos (really recommend the fried mushroom and the fried mahi mahi), and the quesadillas. The churro bites were also great for dessert.

We didn’t have the bowls, so I can’t say whether they are a safe option.

The one comment I’d make is service was very very slow, so if you’re in a rush this isn’t the place to go to. Apart from that we had a very positive experience.

I was unfortunately glutened here pretty bad despite initially being impressed with the precautions and GF options at first. I won’t be back, not worth the risk.

The food was ok. The kids enjoyed it, especially the churros. The staff didn’t seem knowledgeable about celiac or cross contamination; however, there was only one gluten containing product on the menu. We ate and no one got sick.

I went here with my family while we were on vacation and I have to say, I was not disappointed at ALL. The food was high quality, and there were plenty of gluten-free options. Also, the churro waffles (dessert) hit different! In conclusion, the food was high quality, the location was in a good spot, the place was clean, the workers seemed happy to be there and were nice people, and the waffle churro things are top tier.
