Not many choices, and if you don’t are can’t eat pork your stuck with soft tacos that are bland with no flavor, spoke with management they will not work with you on nothing

Our waitresses were awesome and sympathetic, they asked the kitchen lots of questions for us to make sure we avoided cross contamination. They have a separate gluten free menu that you can ask for, which is pretty small but has some tasty options! They special made my fiancé chips using the oven instead of the fryer. So far he has no gastrointestinal issues!

My husband loves Mexican food and found this place that carry gluten-free menu. He ordered tamales, lime rice and refried beans. It was delicious and very pleased with the waitress that are familiar with gluten-free. Also have baked tortillas chips that are gluten-free with sauces. Will definitely come back.

I ordered bbq fajita chicken from the gluten “sensitive” menu and began eating it when I noticed there were 4 flour tortilla chips adorning the plate. My mother asked the manager who admitted they were made from flour and tried to ask if I wanted them to make me something else to which I declined. My trust had been lost. Hopefully I don’t feel sick later for the 2 shrimps I did have.

Came here a few years ago and loved the food. I was very disappointed this time. While they had a section of the menu for gluten free items, it was a small section. I was looking forward to authentic Mexican food, and that is not what I got at all. Was not crazy about the food

Ate there last night 7-12-2021 and I have to say, it was delicious! They have a GF page on their menu and I ordered the 3 soft taco plate. It came with a side of cilantro rice and beans. The seasoned beef on the tacos was outstanding. It was so good I feared I would end up sick. I’m a very sensitive stomached Celiac and I had zero issues eating here. They also brought out separate chips and salsa. The salsa was pretty plain, but it was still nice to have the option to eat chips and salsa like others there. Great experience!

The staff was very knowledgeable. The menu says “for Gluten-sensitive” but my waiter said it WAS gluten free. They prepared everything in a dedicated space. The menu options are limited, but tasted very good.
