My mom and I (both Celiac) ordered the tacos reynosas. I wasn't expecting too much since it's not a dedicated Mexican restaurant. OMG! The beef was spectacular. They were very authentic street tacos, complete with an adobo taqueria sauce. They came with yummy pinto beans. We also split an order of fries because vacation. I had read on other reviews they have their own fryer. They were really great fries!

I thoroughly enjoy going into T & J's. Good Food, fun atmosphere. My favorite is the Taco Reynosa. Their fry fryer is only used for fries, so please enjoy! I have had the Ribs and burger too. I have never had a problem here. The Staff is always wonderful!

Excellent gluten free menu with a wide selection. The food was amazing! We went back a second time the next night. 4 people in our party were gluten free, and no one got sick. All 9 in our party loved their meals!!

Great service and staff. Manager came and joked with someone in our party wearing one of their shirts.

Staff was knowledgeable. They have a gluten free menu to order from. I double checked to see if the fries were GF and they aren’t. They are in a shared fryer. I had the Baja tacos and a side salad! It tasted fresh and I feel good after eating!

Order baja fish tacos off the gluten sensitive menu. The tacos came out covered in fries. I asked the girl who delivered the food if the fries were gluten free and had a dedicated fryer. She said "yes". I asked her to go check. She never came back. I had to ask our waitress to go check.... they are not gluten free and do not have a dedicated fryer. So, gf community beware.

My first time here and I was very pleased! We were seated immediately, the server was pleasant, and the atmosphere was comfortable. I was so happy to have a burger again thanks to the gluten free buns!!

Gluten friendly menu, but very unknowledgeable waitress. My bacon wrapped shrimp tasted funny and the bacon was not cooked enough. Dedicated fryer did exist after asking the manager.

Staff was very knowledgeable about gluten-friendly foods, and had a pre-printed menu on how to order the items that could be made GF. My son with multiple additional allergies enjoyed a burger in a lettuce wrap (GF buns available, no box/wrapper available to check his other allergies) and fries. Dedicated fryer for fries.

I ate here while on vacation in SPI. I asked for their GF menu and was handed a “Gluten Friendly” sheet that had suggestions of items on the menu that may be ok to eat. They said they do not have a dedicated fryer so I could not have the fries. I did order a burger on a GF bun and baked potato. It was good but beware.
