Really enjoyed the service and quality of the food. Staff are very knowledgeable about food allergies and the menu so it was safe and easy to order
Service was good, but food left two diners with digestive issues.
Options for gluten-free were excellent.
We went on a Tuesday and lucked out with Taco Tuesday Specials! I absolutely love the mission of this restaurant as I am GF and DF and it was incredible to be able to eat out without worry. I had the carnitas, chicken tinga and fish tacos. The Chicken was probably my favorite, but they were all delicious. The only thing I was not enamored with were the chips, but the salsa was fantastic.
Great service, food and drinks! Will definitely be back soon
For those with food allergies, travel is without a doubt one of the most unrewarded and irritating experiences when hungry. This restaurant does not identify menu items as GF (Gluten Free) because there are no glutinous flours used in any dish. There is no need for a dedicated fryer or dedicated kitchen space where cross-contamination exists. I had two entrees because the food was so clean and perfectly seasoned. I wish the owner, Josh, would relocate to Vegas in the Fremont Street area. There is no 100% gluten free/vegan Mexican food restaurant with ethical practices in the area. A restaurant like this located near the Fremont Street Experience would do very well. As a Celiac living in Vegas since 2002, I've met many residents and tourists who struggle with finding safe restaurant options in Vegas. Restaurants claiming gluten free options normally aren't gluten free for Celiacs due to cross-contamination. Josh is knowledgeable and intelligent regarding food allergies. Most of us face ethical issues regarding restaurants claiming GF. Most just want a sale regardless of the danger to a person with a gluten allergy and subsequent damage to the body. I hope this restaurant is successful and CA will stop paying $3000.00 monthly to free loaders who refuse to seek gainful employment. This restaurant may hire a responsible and ethical applicant.
Food was so fresh and unique. We love Mexican food but hate being bloated after, we really enjoyed the healthy spin on the dishes and can't wait to go back and try more of the food and drinks!
The food was delicious. I had a wet tings burrito!! The staff was very kind and attentive.
Our server was excellent and the food was excellent. We had street tacos and nachos. Great value and amazing food!
Food, drinks,ambient was great! Service was mediocre!! They just need more friendly and welcoming employees!
Great food and fun ambiance! Fast and friendly service. Definitely would come back next time I am in town.
The salsa and our service was the best part:) my food was served cold :( the bathroom was really poorly maintenance, my drink was not strong, but the cold beans and rice really threw me off
Outstanding service, amazing food & bombbbb mimosas. Thank you.
Super cute place, good food but just be careful when you checkout! I read a previous review which I somewhat discarded but turned out to be true- no matter what you choose they charge an additional 5% to your tip, assuming you won’t notice. For example I tipped 18% but sent myself the bill and when doing the math they actually charged 24%. My friend tipped 23% but when she checked her bill realized they charged 30%. Nice place just be aware they fake their tips on iPad to overcharge.
Overall staff was amazing. Def would go back!! If you want good service it’s a must
Awesome that is is a gluten free kitchen, but the food was not great. The guacamole was very salty. The salsa tasted old and from a jar/can. The tortillas were the best part of our meal.
Outstanding service and fresh, great quality food for a reasonable price. Cocktails were unique with their sugar free cold-pressed juice take at the bar, very trendy!
Absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this place! The food is so fresh & delicious!
We had a really great experience at this restaurant. The service here is exceptional.
Don't understand the 5 stars this restaurant has received in reviews. We sat outside and the server or host was good enough to provide heat lamps upon request. Both the server and the host(ess) were more than friendly. However, the drinks and food were abysmal. There were 4 of us total and all of our meals were cold. My carnitas bowl was dry and insipid. I took two bites and that's all she wrote. Not at any point did our server ask if our meals were good to taste. Further, two of us ordered a mojito and a Margherita; both failed to have any trace of alcohol whatsoever. I just spent $50 for nothing. We will never go back.
If you want healthy Mexican food go here. Awesome food and mimosa's !!!!
Check out the menu prices thre a little high but he for was definitely worth it! I think the waiter was brand new because he couldn't answer any of my questions. The portobello and poblano tacos were absolutely amazing!!👏
Visited San Diego and was looking for vegan options that were open especially with California dining restrictions. Stumbled upon this place during a google search and I am so glad I did! Not only was the service great but the food was too! The seating was sidewalk outdoor seating and they provided heat lamps to keep us warm during our dinner.
We ordered the Nopal Hurache (grilled cactus, topped with jackfruit carnitas), Carnitas (jackfruit) street taco, Portabello & Poblano street taco, Divorciadas enchilada with jackfruit carnitas and the jicama fries all was amazing! Wish I ordered an extra carnitas street taco— also the rice and beans that came with the taco combo was delicious.
Highly recommend to any vegan also you can bring your non- vegan friends as they have meat options
Amazing place and perfect for Sunday brunch with the bottomless drinks. Multiple ones to choose from. Absolutely loved it.
Fabulous fresh food and impeccable service! Can't wait to visit many more times.
Food was fantastic! Josh is very welcoming and knowledgeable. Must try!
We really enjoyed our meal. Highly recommended
My favorite place in San Diego!
Amazing food, great service. First time dining here and was an absolutely amazing experience.
Went for Valentine’s Day on Saturday night instead of Sunday. Outdoor only is what we wanted and got. It was chilly but the table top fire was helpful. Food was good and they had veggie option for me. Very nice evening!
EVERYTHING was absolutely AMAZING ‼️ Josh was very welcoming and personable. He made sure we had everything we needed and was transparent. The food was impeccable and way beyond our expectations ... delicious is not sufficient. This was definitely an experience that I’ll never forget! I had guacamole and shrimp tacos. No disappointments here .... worth every Penny ‼️ Food and service on point‼️‼️‼️
I highly recommend this restaurant! Our experience was amazing. This was our first time visiting this establishment. The food was over the top delicious. Customer service was terrific and we will definitely be back!
100% gluten free, 100% flavor. Amazing cocktails and tasty food.
Fantastic plant based options. Jackfruit tacos are yummy. All of the creams and cheeses plant based. I really enjoyed the grills fish taco as well. Really good cocktails. I recommend the prickly pear
Food was outstanding! Many healthy choices on the menu. The poke bowl was very good. My husband loved his street tacos. Service was efficient and so friendly. Ate outside under a toasty heat lamp. We will definitely go back.
Food was excellent, healthy options and all fresh and delicious. Owner is super friendly offering great service. You should definitely give this a try.
