Being celiac in a small town is hard. Because there aren't many options with restaurants to begin with, it's extremely depressing to not find good, gluten free options. Tamales does a good job especially if you let them know of your gluten allergy. Plus, the quick service and delicious food make a great combo!
Everything tasted great!! Wonderful chicken enchiladas!! Great black beans too!!
This is a great place to eat! My family and I have been eating here for years. The service is extremely friendly and almost everything on the menu is gluten free. If you need a specific gluten free menu they have those as well. The food here is also great!
I have eaten here twice and had take-out once. My 11 yo celiac daughter was present this last week. I am gluten intolerant as well. We had a wonderful experience. No confusions! We asked several different members of wait staff about chips before eating them...and they were Gluten free. She loved her enchiladas and the cheese dip. Love the fact that the mark the gluten free meals with little marked tooth picks that say gluten free. Our take out was also marked gluten free on each container. We had no issues and she felt fine after eating there.
Finally, somewhere a gf person can eat a whole meal without leaving anything off! We were so excited when they launched the gluten free menu. Typically when dining out elsewhere, the gluten free options are very limited. Most restaurants' gluten free menu is grilled chicken or steak, hold the sauce... or a hamburger... hold the fries, hold the bun... steamed veggies... hold the seasoning. Definitely no replacement for the bread/appetizers everyone else chows down on while the gf person watches and waits on their food. Not here! Chips and salsa and queso are gf, and I can have a complete, full meal with nothing left off! My favorite is the pollo monterey.... Chicken, cheese, mushrooms, bell peppers, rice, refried beans, quac, plus the Chips and salsa.... Love being able to have the complete restaurant experience. Staff/management is very knowledgeable and I have always felt safe and comfortable dining here.
My son also has a soy allergy. Halfway through his plate of food, the manager rushed over to tell us that the cheese sauce on his enchiladas had soy in them. So my son got sick after all. They try but not hard enough. Very frustrating experience to get contaminated food after all our precautions.
I found them through the app while traveling on vacation. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly. The regular menu designates which items were gluten free. I still notified them of my allergy to avoid cross contamination. I have a full wheat allergy, and had no reaction. I ate the "Fiesta" meal with chips and dip. It was all delicious. I would eat here again and recommend it to others with allergies.
Came here a couple weeks after finding out I was Gluten intolerant. Manager came over and served everything seperate from my friend (even wore gloves!), ensured my food was prepared in the gluten-free designated dishes, and even verified with me that the cooks had competely seperated my dish so there was no cross contamination-from the Bob's dip to my fajitas. VERY impressed!
Also one of my favorites! The first time I had eaten there after knowing I was gluten sensitive, the waiter didn't know all the answers but was very quick to find out. The do prepare the gf entrees in a designated area and is brought out separately from all other foods to keep from cross-contamination or any mix-ups. The chips are gf because they are made from corn. All the cheese dips are gf. However, if you order enchiladas do not get the sour cream sauce. I was told it was not gf. Can't wait to go back!
Had menu. Service. was excellent as for Roman.Food was good. and so was presentation.
Love it!!! The staff is impressivley knowledgable. The managers top it off by personally delivering your meal. This store is inspiring; The enthusiam put forward to make the celiac feel assured they are Getting the real deal. Pollo Monterey is a must have!!!
the manager Kyle even came out to tell me ways to customize ny relleni
If you have a bad experience, please let someone know! :-) Our experience was bad but I am hopeful. Hostess was surly. Staff seemed uninformed. Manager said that they sometimes fry GF foods with floury foods. However I contacted the NFCA and CC'ed TaMolly's. I received a personal email from Bob Strate in which he vowed to correct the problem (which may not have been actual failure of kitchen protocol but the manager's ignorance of it) and I know that NFCA is following up with them. I got emails from two folks at the NFCA and a personal phone call from one of them. I have renewed faith in GREAT Kitchens. I'm willing to believe that our experience was just a bump in the road and look forward to giving them another try. The chips are all we ate (based on a server's assurance; FWIW, they tasted good and were light and crunchy. What we learned from the manager led us to believe that they were likely cross-contaminated. One of the things that Bob assured us is that two out of their five fryers are dedicated gluten-free and 20 feet from the others. My 3-star rating reflects hope more than the actual experience and balances our initial, substantial disappointment with impressive response from corporate. Time will tell.
We visit TaMolly's in Greenville, TX as least weekly, including today, Sept 05, 2012. My husband has had Celiac since 2004, and we were so happy that TaMolly's now has a GF menu. We have had consistently good results with the gluten-free selections at the Greenville, Texas location. The key is to ASK FOR THE GLUTEN FREE MENU AND MAKE SURE THE SERVER WRITES IT UP AS GLUTEN FREE. One way we make sure they understood is to order some gluten free corn tortillas before the meal. If they are gluten free, they will come out wrapped in paper inside the tortilla warmer. If there's no paper around them, you might have to reiterate the 'gluten free' part. This only happened to us once when they first started offering the GF menu, but not since. The manager prepares and serves everything that's ordered gluten free, and there are plenty of selections. They are trained in how to prepare the food so that it doesn't get cross contaminated. We corresponded with TaMolly's office by e-mail as listed on their website and learned from the owner that a family member with the same diet restriction was the catalyst for their new GF menu, and it was obvious he understood the problems and the need. We hope the word gets out so they will continue it.
My favorite gluten-free location! I love the fajitas! The gf food is brought out by the manager to make sure it doesn't get mixed up with other foods.
