If you’re looking for great service, this is not the place for you (gratuity was included). However, almost everything on the menu was gluten free and I left feeling satisfied.

Food was extremely bland and service horrible. They are too relaxed regarding gluten free. Never asked if we wanted drinks. Server was clueless.

Wow! The food is great! I’m gluten intolerant / sensitive & found many choices. A definite repeat for us! The fried avocado tacos & jackfruit tacos are exceptional; lots of shrimp in the grilled shrimp.

Street taco heaven! Delicious street tacos. Added bonus: probably half of the menu is GF. Lots of choices!! Nice outdoor seating. Fried plantains are also delicious and GF.

The BEST meal we had in or around Colorado Springs on our vacation. We had the street corn nachos and they are phenomenal. They almost make me want to move to Colorado just so I could have access to them any time I want.

Review


Awesome food and service. We sat outside. Staff is very knowledge about preparing food for celiac. Menu is marked GF, but server came back to suggest I change one taco I ordered because a supplier or something had changed. Ordered the street nachos as an appetizer for the table (GF). Several taco options are GF. Everything tasted great! Highly recommend.

Had GF corn tortillas and the street corn and rice and beans. All were soooo good and felt fine after! My celiac brother also had tacos and felt fine afterwards. Waitress was very sweet and understanding. Cool environment!
