    Same awesomeness as Casbah across the street. Same owners = shared valet parking. Nice (loud) atmosphere. Great food. Happily made my grilled fish tacos gluten free by switching out the flour tortillas for corn ones.

    I love love mad mex. I always get a bare-itto which is just the fillings in a bowl. They give very large portions. The chicken is marinated in beer so don't order that, I think the other meat is okay but I would double check with your server.

    No sure if celiac friendly, but I enjoyed their willingness to ask if gluten was present in their margaritas, which it isn't. I ate the Mad Mex Enchilada with grilled chicken and it was very good. They have an allergen list on their website. Overall, pretty impressed. Although the only negative would be the raspberry margarita could have been strained of all seeds. As far as gluten goes, they have some nice options.

    Honestly this place just pissed me off. The hostesses were absolute air heads who said there was no tables available and continues to seat smaller parties who came in after us at the obviously empty tables after we said we would be split into two tables. The aforementioned airheads knew nothing about gluten free (we only asked them because they said we would have to order from the bar and get take out because there were no tables) a direct quote was, "Uh I think like the salads are.....?" Would not come here again.

    Beware chips are not gluten free. The servers also did not have an allergen list. Seems like I you have celiac it's not a great option. Food is alright but seems likely that the kitchen and staff aren't careful enough to make it worth it

    Asked for gf menu, had no clue what I was talking about (none of the 3 hostesses at stand) Told me they thought it was in regular menu (it wasn't). Looked it up on website. Not very educated. Food was tasty once I figured out what I could have on the website (that had many broken links).

    We had eaten at this restaurant in State College and had a great experience. This was equally good. Lots of choices and large portions. We had nachos grande, fajitas and enchiladas. Rice and beans. Great GF food.

    Great gluten free menu, a few drinks to select from, and seemingly knowledgable staff. It is downtown though, so don't be in a huge hurry.

    Do NOT go here! They advertise as gluten free even though right on the menu it states that their carnitas is marinated in malted beer. Carnitas is listed as gluten free on their allergen menu. They were clueless when I asked about this.

    Love the food but get sick every single time! The margaritas, salsas and guac are mass made so even my glutinous friends get sick!
