    Server brought me baked chips with pico de gallo which was a huge plus. They only let the managers explain the gf options. Didn't remember many options. Food and margs were marginal at best. Way better mexican available somewhere else.

    new to GF diet ... my mom tried the 3 soft corn tacos with beans & cilantro lime rice. I had the salmon santa Cruz with rhe cilantro lime rice & seasonal veggies. my salmon was delicious. my didnt rave about her tacos but we both loved the rice. waited a bit for Gluten sensitive chips. they were pretty awful. don't waste your time on those.

    Great Mexican food with true atmosphere. they do not have a GF menu, but many dishes are naturally GF. I eat their cheese enchiladas, tostada, beans, and Mexican potatoes with no issues. We eat here a couple of times a month.

    My wife ordered from the gluten free menu. Her dish came out not gluten free; with regular chips! When she asked about the chips, the food runner took the dish back to the kitchen returning a minute or two later. We asked if it was the same dish with the chips removed and she told us yes! The manager never came to the table! Staff does not seem trained and the general attitude does not inspire confidence in celiac sufferers!

    My waiter was very kind and probably went back to the kitchen 5 times to double check my questions. Just tread lightly here and ask if you are uncertain. I found out the chips are NOT cooked in a dedicated fryer, but the waiter had the cooks bake the chips in a different pan. Although, not as tasty, it was a nice effort.

    I'm a sensitive Celiac (I explained this) and I ordered the tamales, lime cilantro rice and vegetables with out seasoning. The vegetables looked like it had seasoning on them so I didn't eat them. I did however eat the Gluten free chips, which I was assured where prepared and cooked in an area and oven that was only used for gluten free items, the tamales and the cilantro lime rice oh and the salsa. I'm not sure where the gluten was but I got sick. It wasn't too bad so I'm guessing it was a contamination issue.

    This restaurant is NOT gluten free. Their chips are fried with gluten products. The server said nothing on the menu is considered gluten free. They have a "gluten-sensitive" menu meaning they don't purposely put gluten in it, but everything is open to contamination. No separate oils, cooking utensils, pans, or prepping areas.

    My server had no idea what gluten was. They do have a gluten sensitive menu but it is very limited. No chicken or steak at all. They did offer me baked corn chips since the fried chips use the same as the flour but they are horrible. No taste at all, not even salted, and they are chewy.

    This is ok most of the time. They do have a gf menu, and most of the servers we've had have an awareness of the gf menu. They will bring out baked chips on request. We seem to keep going there anyways until we noticed a pattern: we always order the chicken nuggets for our son, and a few times they have come out raw in the middle. Um, gross. After a few occasions of that we stopped going.

    Amazing! They were so kind and helpful! When I went there recently, I mentioned my gluten allergy and the need for staff to clean prep areas, change gloves, etc. The staff was really nice and made sure everything would be taken care of! They even have a menu devoted to gluten-free items! Their gluten free pork fajitas with corn tortillas were delicious! I also loved that they offered gluten free corn chips to go with the green salsa. It made me feel less "left out" when I was dining with my friends that do not have a food allergy. The restaurant and bathrooms were also kept tidy as well!

    The gluten free menu is limited but there are some interesting selections. The waitress brought out chips and salsa and said the chips were gluten free but she wasn't sure about the salsa. She came back in a few minutes and as I had already had two chips said the salsas are gluten free and I will bring out gluten free chips after I already had eaten some of the ones she said were gluten free! The waitress openly admitted she didn't know much about the gluten free menu! I was disappointed and will not go back there.

    All four members of my family have varying degrees of gluten intolerance. The gluten sensitive menu is extremely limited with most meats not gluten free- including the fajita chicken and steak. Our only meat option for tacos was ground beef. All four of us became very ill and my daughter had a gluten induced asthma attack. No way was this just cross-contamination. I seriously doubt their ground beef is gluten free.

    Gluten free menu is actually "gluten sensitive". The bacon wrapped shrimp is actually dipped into the fryer with chips, etc. kitchen Staff was not knowledgeable. After going through an explanation of no flour, etc., my tacos came out in flour tortillas. Waitress stated they could scrape it off and place in corn tortillas. This meal took a long time to get and to be correct. The waitress did try really hard and I didn't get sick with the final product. I've been newly diagnosed so this was too much of a hassle for me to go back.
