    It is not Celiac friendly there. They do have a gluten free menu, but I went three times and each time I got really really sick ordering off of it. I even brought my own chips because their gluten free chips were manufactured in a facility with wheat.

    Make sure to let the hostess know you want a gluten free menu as it is separate from their regular menu. They have several different items available, which I thought was nice. Also, ask your server for a bowl of gluten free chips because they now keep some in stock. The regular chips they bring to the table are fried with items that have gluten, so be cautious and make sure to let your server know you want their gluten free chips instead.

    The GF menu is small, and even smaller if you also have a shellfish allergy. The food was good, but I thought it was a little pricey for a la carte tacos.

    Great atmosphere & good food! Gluten free menu, also dairy free options- Ask server about updated menu because there have been a few changes. Chips are not safe- we bring our own or ask for corn tortillas with salsa. Favorites are shrimp tacos and beef tacos

    Gluten free options. Chips are not safe according to my server, but the corn tortillas are.
