    Amazing tacos! The Cuban Pig on a corn tortilla was the winner for me. My husband had the brisket taco (which is not gf) and said it was the best taco he has ever had. At the register they had the list of all the gf items they offered. Would definitely go back if we are ever in Texas again.

    Very disappointed. Based on these reviews I thought this place would be awesome. Not the case. The person at the front was on top of it. They have a highlighted gf menu at the front. And he told me what could be dairy free. But then I got my food and halfway in, I realized the tortillas were different. Soo my brisket taco was served on a flour tortilla. They don't change gloves, don't even note gf on the ticket. Just say what to change (like corn tortilla). Also, fryer isn't safe so potatoes and chips are not gf. Ask about the tortilla before you eat it for sure. It should have a yellow tint with speckles in it!

    Fantastic! They have a wide selection of options and the menu is easy to modify to by gf. Staff changed gloves and kept my dishes separate from my groups. Food was awesome and staff was very helpful.

    This restaurant was DELISH!!! I got the #7 on a corn tortilla and it's the best corn tortilla I've had! The corn is soooo YUM! No problems with cross contamination and I want to go back again before I leave Dallas!

    Loved the tacos...the #7 was delish (Cuban pig). Ask the cashier for the GF menu-lots of options on the corn tortillas. Really cool place!

    I love eating here. Most of their food is gluten free and most of the ones that aren't can be modified by changing to a corn tortilla or simply removing an ingredient. I love their retro style, super friendly staff, and out-door eating option. It's a great place to grab lunch or dinner with friends. Its a place with gourmet food with a fun diner feel.
