So amazing. Looked like most things on the menu, except the burritos, were gluten free. They assured me that the only things fried with the chips were chips, and all the chips and plantain chips were GF.

Great experience with our first visit to this establishment at Fashion Square. Ordered a Baja taco with fried mahi mahi fish (haven’t had one in years) chips/guac and a quesalita as recommended. Everything was GF, delicious and plated beautifully. No issues after. Wish there were a closer location to be a regular.

I always get the guiltless quesadilla (GF tortilla) and it’s amazing. The vegan chipotle crema is addictively delicious, and recently they added GF churro bites! Be sure to specify allergy and the staff is well trained

The food was outstanding. Good portions. Really liked the Cauliflower Rice. The add ons add up quick but under control. Had the protein bowl and the pina bowl. Tostones were a great sub for chips.

Menu items are marked. Food was very good and I did not get sick. Only wish the portion sizes were a little bigger for the price. $14 for a bowl that is about 3/4 the size of a chipotle bowl.

Ordered two taco plates GF DF and no onions. This food was not good. Beans undercooked, rice dry and salty, tacos just ordinary. Yes it was safe but it just didn't taste that great.

Good modern Mexican, colorful decor and food. Counter service. Relatively inexpensive, but not fast food prices/style. GF items clearly marked. It's just outside the food court, with its own tables and chairs. Pretty space. Come here instead of Chipotle.

I am Celiac and I love Tocaya. I can safely order delivery from here and have done so more than two dozen times with no problem. I particularly love the gluten-free quesadilla, a rare find. The bulls are all excellent and the Tocaya salad is fantastic.

I had one of the few gluten-free quesadillas I've had since being diagnosed as a celiac here. It was the not the best quesadilla I've ever had, but it was definitely good for street-food while walking around Venice Beach. The chips and queso was quite tasty as well. The menu is easy to read and clearly indicates which items are GF (there's a lot to choose from). Did not get sick too which is always nice. :) Only one star off as service was a little slow and took a while to get our food.

Vanessa was great and I informed her of my celiac/ severe gluten allergy. My burrito was delicious. It was hard to believe it was gluten free. I had it at 6 pm with no reaction that night or next morning. I think it’s necessary to inform them if you have celiac so that they can be careful to not cross contaminate

Used to eat the tocaya chain 3-4x a week and they were great with preventing cross contamination. Kept getting sick because the corn tortillas started getting prepared on the same surface as the flour tortillas for the burritos. Now it seems like a cross contamination nightmare. When they’re making the burritos they use the same spoons to place the items on the tortilla which touch the flour tortilla then goes back into the food. For a fad dieter this may be ok but for a celiac it’s unacceptable. I’d stay clear if you’re very sensitive!

I am celiac and the staff at this location seemed very uninformed about what that actually means. There was a mix up with my order and when I wanted to confirm that it was safe for me to eat, the staff gave me a hard time. I ended up sending it back and reordering again to be completely sure I got the correct meal. It’s good that their menu is mostly GF but since they do use flour tortillas, there is still a risk for CC. To me it felt more like a “trendy” GF spot as opposed to celiac safe.
