No separate fryer or anything but they have corn hard and soft tortillas for tacos. Chips are corn also. Food is really good.

You cannot get anything from the fryer. We had corn tacos and felt safe with them. Our server was very helpful. The food is ok. You are paying for the location.

Despite acknowledging that they didn’t have a dedicated fryer, I am not confident that my food was prepped well or safely. My food (carne asada tacos) arrived cold—not tepid—cold. My friends’ meals were also cold. Their margaritas are not gf—they use store bought juices and mixes that aren’t gf. They have limited cocktail/liquor options (eg, no gf G&Ts and their mixers aren’t safe either). All of this aside, the service was horrible. They also aren’t respecting COVID social distancing—they seat people very near to one another despite our asking specifically to distance from others.

Manager told me the only thing with gluten to best of her knows was the flour tortillas. Not 100 percent sure on shared fryer so stayed away from chips. Had good fajitas- black beans side was better than expected. Nice strong, inexpensive drinks too!

Super friendly and accommodating - as the others say no dedicated fryer but the menu is easy to work to get something gluten free.

They do not have a dedicated fryer so the chips are not gluten free. Corn tacos were good. Would like to suggest having separate fryer or even a bag of corn chips so we could enjoy chips & salsa.

I am celiac, had the shrimp tacos 🌮 on a corn shell. I did request they grill the shrimp because the fryer is contaminated. They were delish and so was the tequila sunrise 🌅. No problems ❤

they do not have a gluten free menu but almost all of their menu has the option of corn tortillas. And the waitress was very knowledgeable and she indicated on the ticket gluten free so the kitchen knew to change their gloves and clean the surface. all of their mixers are made on house so gluten free. beautiful cool little place right on the beach.
