Had a great experience here! I was hesitant since a few of the reviews below mentioned this place not being celiac safe. The chips are a no go due to cross contamination but they were able to safely make tacos with corn tortillas and prepared them without risk of cross contamination. The hot chix and carne asada tacos were delicious!

I went to this place twice during my visit, and both times, the servers (two different people) were very knowledgeable and cautious. As soon as I told them I have a gluten allergy, they explained that the chips are not safe due to cross contamination, and that most of the tacos would be safe, but some will require modifications. They have a full bar, and a delicious selection of margaritas. They also have an impressive beer selection if you’re with people who are not celiac. Best of all they make their hot sauce in house, and although it’s not label gluten-free, all of it is safe and delicious. I was also relieved to see that it said celiac- gluten free on my receipt

Love the food here but the tacos are NOT celiac safe. The tacos are markee gluten free on the menu, but after talking to a server, she found out from the kitchen that the corn tortillas are cooked on the SAME flat top as the flour tortillas, and they don't have an alternative to cooking them on the same surface.

Kudos to the server who let us know, and hope someday to be able to eat here again!

We ended up here late on a Friday night after a concert in the area. The staff was knowledgeable and let me know the chips had cross contamination.

I had three delightfully different tacos - they were SO good and the corn shells were way better than any others I’ve been able to find. I had 3 tacos. I had a Oaxacan Beef, Barbacoa Pork, and Carne Asada. All three were delicious and very distinctive. My favorites were definitely the beef and the pork. The carne asada wasn’t bad... The other two were just so good!

Staff were very knowledgeable and explained the protocols. Told us not to have the chips due to the fryer not being dedicated. Menu was clearly marked. Good for the celiac family member.

Most of their items are gluten free. The tacos are made with corn tortillas. There is an option for flour tortilla and tacos are served family style all on one tray so be careful if one of the people in your party orders a flour tortilla. I’m sure they would bring them out on a separate tray. delicious food and margaritas! :)
