We ate here our first night in Tahoe and loved it. Seated quickly (it wasn't busy at this time) and ordered a selection of tacos and the pulled pork sandwich. All delicious and washed down with a couple beers and a big house margarita! Recommend...More

Great selection of tacos. Don’t ask for beans and rice, they don’t serve it here. Cold beer as well.

Hey, the food is good. Don't come here for a chicken taco, you can get that at jalisco grill for a lot less. These are small creations that are quite interesting, but ordering 3 tacos and a drink is going to run you over $13.

The waitress was extremely nice. Other staff was very friendly too. The waitress gave good advice about what to get. We tasted quite a lot of different taco’s, all of which were to die for!! Quality for money is really good here as well!!

Had a Taco Bell two days before this visit and it was like night and day! The food was so fresh with great variety of tacos. My favourites were the crab taco, steak taco and mince taco supreme. Mushroom and goats cheese was pretty good...More

This place is great!! The food, service and pricing made for an excellent experience. The only ding I can give the restaurant is that there is no guacamole and salsa on the menu. We got some story about a price spike in avocados.. Hello It’s...More

Great variety of tacos. Another family left as we were arriving because they didn't have rice and beans for the kids - it's not that type of dining. This is speciality food at reasonable prices. If you want great prices, go during happy hours (3-5?)....More

Sorry, I have no information re "gluten free" dishes. They were so accommodating, that I urge you to phone them with the question.
