Stopped here and was assured that there were gluten free options. There was one soup and a couple of their salads. All meats come pre-seasoned with gluten contains ingredients. We walked out! DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!

I've had the salmon several times. The staff doesn't always seem to know what's going on but thanks to "google" I had an idea what was safe and what wasn't. Like many other places their fries are listed as gf but once placed in their only fryer are no longer safe. Boo!!

Waitress didn't know if they had a gluten free menu. She checked and came back with a binder. French fries were listed as being gluten free. I asked if they had a dedicated fryer. She checked with the manager and said NO they use the same fryer to cook wings and a number of other items. I ordered just chips and salsa because they are not very knowledgable

My favorite meal is the Fiesta lime chicken. However, if you have celiac, order this WITHOUT the tortilla strips. While they are naturally gluten free, they fry them themselves with other foods (such as the breaded chicken). I have been told by the staff many times that the tortilla strips are safe for me to eat, only to have the answer change when I ask if they're fried with anything else. This item is listed as gluten free without an changes needed, so beware - this may be the same with other "gluten free" options on the menu.

The menu is “gluten sensitive” and is not suitable for anyone who has celiac and a severe reaction to gluten.

I have celiac. There are a few god options. I have the ribeye once and the sirloin another time. Don’t risk the fries, they are in a shared fryer. But the mashed potatoes and veggies are good.

Items on the menu that include gluten are indicated with a gluten sensitive (gs) logo. Additionally, when the waiter found out I was gluten sensitive she spoke to the manager and the manager came out with the allergy binder so that I could appropriately make a decision. Very pleased with the service and professionalism.
