    Overall, I was pleased with this restaurant. They had a gluten-free menu readily available and though our server was not completely familiar with GF, she tried hard and went back to ask the cook staff anything she didn't know. The gluten-free appetizers were great and I LOVED the chips. My two main issues were 1) I would have liked some rice to go with my meal, but there was none listed on the gluten-free menu. A little surprised by that, especially since they had a cilantro-lime rice which is pretty easy to make from scratch and make gf; and 2) my order was not gf when it came out. I had ordered the seafood enchiladas from the gluten-free menu, so they should have come out in corn tortillas. However, upon checking, my enchiladas were made from flour tortillas. This was immediately rectified and apologized for - several times actually. The waitress felt pretty bad over a mistake that was easily caught, plus for my trouble they comped my entree. A few missteps, but I would definitely go back, especially for the chips and the Queso Fundito.

    Management is very concerned about GF needs & the food being prepared properly. I had an issue once out of all the times we have been there, the Mgr took care of it right away, he went above & beyond my expectations. Note: the ONLY 2 meats that are allowed is the Chicken & Steak!!! Ground Beef is NOT GF! No matter what anyone says, it's NOT GF if it has Ground Beef, this is per the General Mgr, Tom...spoke w him personally as this was the issue I had w the wrong meat on my Naked Nachos. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! We eat there or I do a few times a month, I can have my Tex-Mex w/o having to deal w all the hassle! They will also substitute on the kids Quesadilla (sp?) if a GF "allergy". We order our son the Cheese Quesadilla w a Corn Tortilla vs the wheat & he hasn't had any issues either.
