    I am extremely gluten intolerant and always have anxiety about eating at restaurants. I read reviews about Margaritaville in Las Vegas and was very excited about the gluten free menu. I brought my group of friends to the restaurant and explained my food issues to the server. Usually I expect servers to be somewhat reassuring, however he was not reasurring and seemed rushed and therefore unpleasant. I ordered a gluten free burger, and was really excited about it. However when the food came, on my plate was a patty with a thin piece of cheese and a stack of lettuce. The waiter told me then that the kitchen was out of GF buns but that I could just wrap the patty in lettuce, which is not my cup of tea. I said no thank you and ordered a grilled chicken dish with rice and seasonal veggies instead. My replacement food took about 20 minutes to arrive. I watched everyone else eat. The rest of my party had finished eating and most of their plates had been cleared by the time I got my food. When the food came it was awful. The chicken was seriously overdone - so much so that I had trouble cutting it. The "seasonal vegetables" were rubbery, oily and flavourless string beans and the rice tasted like it had been cooked the previous week and re-heated. After reading so many positive GF reviews I was extremely disappointed.
