We ordered salads from their gluten free menu and they came with fried flour tortillas on the salad. My son with Crohn’s disease and gluten intolerance are some before we noticed they looked different from their other chips. The waitress just said sorry and the manager said nothing even though he was made aware of the situation.

You can ask for your food to be prepared with caution in mind

Very limited menu if you are celiac or sensitive you can’t eat the corn tortillas. With the virus restrictions they have shortened the menu so now only two items are available on the gf menu.

Food is very good. There is, however, not much to choose from. Beef soft tacos, tamales, Fajitas (bacon-wrapped shrimp, BBQ shrimp, or veggie) and a couple other things. Salsa is great! The corn tortillas that come with the fajitas look homemade and are wonderful. The chips are TERRIBLE. That is the biggest reason for giving 3 stars vs 4. Chips at a Mexican Food Embassy should not be terrible. I did not get sick, which I realize is the most important thing. There are other Mexican restaurants in OKC (Ted's!!) that are celiac friendly and have amazing chips.

Can I just say WOW! The place and food was absolutely amazing. The GF menu is part of the whole menu, but is dedicated to one spot, so not hunting down what we can and cannot eat. It does say gluten sensitive, but they were super careful to take care of me.

I ordered the fajitas and the bonus to it all was the chips and green salsa. Absolutely loved the salsa. I ordered the flan, and oh my…it melts in your mouth.

Our waitress, Rhonda, was very kind and helpful and the chef came out twice and spoke with us. Guys, I’m telling you…if you are at Myrtle Beach, this is definitely a place to go if you like Mexican!!

Waitress was super helpful and pleasant. When I walked in, the hostess made sure to tell me they’re gluten sensitive not gluten free but they will do their best to accommodate me. She also told me to tell the waitress right away that I need gf chips and not to eat the ones they initially bring out. I had tamales. They were good. Somewhat limited menu but it’s nice to have another alternative and the tropical salsa was great!
