    Lovely spot and delicious food, but I also have a corn allergy, and they were horrible about keeping my food safe. I ordered a steak and side salad and told the server to omit the corn they put on top of the salad. It was not busy there, we were one of only two tables he was waiting on, so it shouldn't have been a big deal. When my food came out it had corn all over it! I told him I was severely sensitive to corn and they needed to remake the whole dish or I would get sick. The replacement food came out a little too quick, I was suspicious that they hadn't remade the steak per my instructions. Not surprisingly, I got very sick! So just a warning if you have any other food allergies or sensitivities, DO NOT EAT HERE.

    We went to the hill location. Beautiful spot to eat outside on a nice day. Nice drinks too. Server didn't share the specials with us, so that put a little bad taste in our mouth. However, they make fresh corn tortillas in front of you and they are used instead of deep fried corn chips to go with their order of guacamole. Yay! The guacamole was a little bland, so I added the sauces with it on the tortillas and that helped. To be fair we are huge avocado lovers and have guac at lest a few times a week, so we can be picky. They offer decent veg options. Food was pretty good and price was fair. We like our Mexican a little more flavorful and spicy, but overall it was a nice meal.

    My favorite gluten-free restaurant in town. Five stars for the food! The service was alright, but they didn't quite get my meal right and the waiter didn't know the seasonal veggies. He also didn't write down any of my party's orders so that could be why he didn't get the order quite right. But back to the food...DELISH!

    Fabulous, fantastic and really good. Nearly everything is gluten free except some of the drinks. Beware corn tortillas are addictive. Love this place. Great place to eat if you have celiac.

    This place was AMAZING!!! I have Celiac disease, so finding this restaurant that is completely dedicated to being GF made me very eager to try it. I had the salmon hash, which was made with incredibly cooked and tender salmon, farm fresh eggs, a little Queso fresco, sweet potatoes, and tons of seasonal veggies, along with some freshly made guacamole and fabulous fresh corn tortillas (that we got to watch them make onsite), and it was all absolutely fantastic! I had no issues after eating this wonderful food, so it is definitely celiac friendly.
