    I'm sorry the last reviewer had a bad experience. I have been here twice and never had an issue! I think they did a great job and yup, I never got sick!

    the first day we went everything was okay, the server wasn't exactly sure what tequilas were gluten free, and struggled to explain that they had a dedicated fryer so my boyfriend was on edge but in the end, the food was great and he didn't have a reaction. The first time was so good that we went back again for dinner the next day, this is where we found trouble. Not only did our serve seem to be struggling with keeping up with her tables, which left him without a soda until we got the managers attention, but she then told us that the kitchen had premade his enchiladas with flour tortillas so they had to remake them. At this point now he's worried about cross contamination. when the food eventually came out, you could tell my tacos had been sitting there, waiting just like we did, and his enchiladas were super dry, leaving us with an overall negative experience. I'd suggest if you're visiting this place, don't go during a busy hour.

    Fantastic slow cooked pork, beef, chicken tacos. Authentic Mexican flavors, and unbelievable Margaritas and Mojitos. Can get tacos on lettuce wraps. Dedicated fryer for the tortilla chips. Manager has great command of all ingredients. As always, ask a MGR when not sure. SOLID !

    Wow! Almost everything is gf. They have dedicated fryer and the staff and manager are very knowledgeable about food allergies and gf issues. Monday and Tuesday is $1.50 taco night and you can get corn tortillas or lettuce wraps if you aren't eating corn. Very yummy and a great fun atmosphere!

    Most of the menu is gluten free, including the tortilla chips. Might even be entire menu but not certain.
