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.

If you want authentic Mexican food, this is not the place to get it. The gluten-free menu was extremely limited. The vegetarian menu was on the flip side of the gluten-free menu, and there was very little overlap (I’m a vegetarian, also dairy free). The waitress was very patient and helpful; she kept suggesting different items that were not really Mexican (such as a salad with mandarin orange slices). Finally, she recommended that I simply order a side of black beans, a side of cilantro rice, and a side of corn tortillas, and make my own tacos. I did just that, and the food was exactly what I was craving. But I wouldn’t go back if I wanted anything other than corporate food.

Gluten free menu has very limited options. I ordered corn tortillas and got flour tortillas. Thankfully I knew the difference. Got charged double for "happy hour" drinks. Food was mediocre.

Very little gf options. Waitress didn't tell us chips were fried with gluten until after we ate them. Food was worse tasting than taco bell and one taco was $3.99. Everyone in our party asked for no refried beans because they contained lard and half of them got beans anyway. Will NOT be going back there.

Service and food has always been great the many times I have eaten here. Staff always double checks to make sure the tortillas for the fajitas are gf. I eat vegetarian as well gf (celiac) and the kitchen has always accommodated my requests for different veggies to be used for the fajitas. Portions are huge and I always have enough leftovers for a second meal.

Chips were horrible. Both my daughter and I had issues after we ate their food and we ordered from their gf menu. My daughter felt so sick we had to go back to our hotel for the evening.

My wife ordered from the gluten free menu. Her dish came out not gluten free; with regular chips! When she asked about the chips, the food runner took the dish back to the kitchen returning a minute or two later. We asked if it was the same dish with the chips removed and she told us yes! The manager never came to the table! Staff does not seem trained and the general attitude does not inspire confidence in celiac sufferers!

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

If you ask, they have gluten free chips. The chips are very bland. The menu is very limited, and you can’t order chicken. They were not careful and gave me flour tortillas.

Tamales were a great choice. Brought out gluten free chips. Not as good as the real chips but ok for dipping.
