Staff is unknowledgable of Gluten Free. When asked if the basket of tortilla chips that arrive when seated was GF, the server responded with "Yes, they are free."

I then went further to explain, but no serious convincing that they understood. Red flag, but I tried them.

The meal itself may have been OK, went with the enchilada moon plate, rolled in corn tortillas. Seemed OK.

Either way it was no good shortly after.

There are no options for celiac as even their salsa and guacamole have gluten due to chili powder used.

They have a very small gluten free menu. The staff didn’t seem too knowledgeable about gluten sensitivities but they do have a disclaimer that their menu is not Celiac safe due to cross contamination. There also isn’t a dedicated fryer for the tortilla chips.

Pretty good basic Mexican, but my server was not GF knowledgeable and the "gluten-free menu" is "suggestions from our customers" and specifies that they do not recommend for celiacs because of possible (probable?) cross contamination. I'm feeling abdominal pain starting...

Blue Moon has some gluten free items or things that can be made gluten free. The corn chips are made in house in a dedicated fryer. Very knowledgable staff, they double check the order with kitchen staff to make sure it IS gluten free. If you are anxious about eating out, they will put you at ease. I am Celiac - very sensitive - and have never gotten sick.

Some of the other locations have reviews saying they have dedicated fryers for the chips. This one, however, DOES NOT!!! Please keep this in mind when eating from here.Other than that, they have plenty of GF options and the waitstaff is very friendly and accommodating. Just let them know you have Celiac and they'll help you with any questions you may have. :)

Not for celiacs. They DO NOT have a dedicated fryer as stated on here. Don't eat the chips. There is cross contamination in the so called gluten free offerings. The staff and manager seemed annoyed at my questions.

Yes there are many gluten free options however, if a restaurant puts a disclaimer that "these items are not suggested for people who have Celiac Disease " then they should not be listed in this app
