GF fresh chips and Queso!!! There are only a few things that aren’t GF (flour tortillas (but they have corn which are safe), chicken bc its beer braised, fried fish, and mac’n’cheese. 10/10 on food, service, and atmosphere! It’s more fast-casual. You don’t have a dedicated waitress, you order at a register then they bring it to you but there’s ton of staff walking around asking if you need anything. Just tell them you are Celiac or GF when you order - if you have celiac or an allergy and tell them they will take extra precautions and change gloves! I recommend shrimp tacos w lettuce, chipotle ranch, corn, avocado and chips and Queso 😋

Staff is very knowledgeable about gluten free options. You can get tacos in either soft corn tortillas or crispy. The beef, steak, and grilled chicken are all gluten free. The regular chicken is not because it’s marinated in beer. Chips are safe to eat as is the queso. I’ve eaten here many times and never had an issue. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I came here under the impression that they were gluten free. The staff didn't really know if their kitchen was safe or not, but they asked around and told me that they had gluten free options. I got a burrito bowl with no chips or anything suspicious. I got glutened pretty badly. I'm not sure what ingredient did it. The food tasted good, though!

I'm not celiac but I had no issues. Staff knowledgeable and helped me choose my meat (not all are GF). Got a taco platter with grilled chicken and siracha coleslaw. Super tasty! Spicy! Loved it!

The staff is knowledgeable about what ingredients are gf and which aren’t, and will let you know when you’re building your taco/burrito/bowl/etc. The menu has a build-your-own section that is totally customisable so you can avoid any gluten ingredients. Their chips are fried in a separate fryer and don’t have gluten.

The staff is always helpful and friendly! Their chips and chicken are not GF, but they have GF corn tortillas that are good for the tacos! Also the bowls are always great.

They're very knowledgeable of the menu! Basically avoid the chips, that's the main thing.

Was told all meats not gluten free due to marinades.

Staff knew what was celiac safe. Don't eat the chips. Basically you're stuck with a burrito bowl to keep things simple. Could get a corn tortilla taco or something. However, we went there a second time this week and my husband got very sick. We didn't realize refried beans could contain bullion and therefore gluten. Staff must not have known either, that's the only thing that could have contaminated him. He got a bowl with rice, chicken (staff said chicken is safe), cheese, cilantro, and refried beans. Took my 5 star rating down to 4 because of the Bean issue. :/

I've been to this Taco Mama's, and it's okay. My brother works at one owned by the creator of the company. The shredded chicken and barbacoa are not gf. The corn tortillas are safe, however there is a high risk of cross contamination here. Be careful, and communicate well with whoever is taking your order!

The chicken is NOT gf because it is marinated in beer. The rice and beans are NOT gf.

The staff is very friendly and kind and the gf options were good, BUT the food tasted like I could have made it myself in my own kitchen, it wasn't anything special. Its still nice to have a place to eat out safely at though.

Manager talked with me and told me whether or not items I wanted were within my allergy needs. Don't eat the chips due to shared fryer.

The staff is very friendly and knowledge about contamination concerns, plus the food is delicious! I visited several times during my week in Huntsville. Tuesday are half price margaritas!

Restaurant offers broad variety of freshly prepared Mexican (TexMex) food with a knowledgeable staff who quickly identified the few non-GF items. My wife (gluten- and dairy-free) was able to have totally compliant nachos for first time in over a year. She was so impressed with the place that we will be going back soon. Other members of party had other menu items that were just as flavorful and well seasoned. An outstanding new restaurant in Huntsville!!
