Delicious unique tacos! Server Kylon was helpful - I asked about cross-contamination, and he explained that tacos share a grill with wheat, but they have lettuce wraps instead for gluten-free tacos. And they were just as yummy (if not a little messier). Gluten-free taco (lettuce wrap) options are clearly marked on the menu. I had a rotisserie chicken and a spicy grilled salmon. Don't know if they changed gloves or reduced contact with my friend's corn tacos. But the service was truly excellent for a fast taco joint! Kylon checked on us multiple times and made great recommendations. No regrets.
