Excellent. Many gluten free items. I think but am not certain that the chips are also gluten free, but I have never gotten sick there. Make sure you tell the waitress that you are allergic, and I always (in all restaurants) tell them to write it on the ticket to make sure the chef knows. Also, do that because some dishes can be made gluten free which requires different tortillas, etc. so you need to tell them. Bartender Victor is great, if by yourself or with a friend, consider eating at the bar. There Tequila selection is numerous as well. Enjoy.

Food was excellent with many items marked GF or can be made GF. Yes it is on the expensive side but no outrageously so. No GF beer available however.

Great service from all servers and a clear understanding of Celiac. Menu has GF symbols along with vegetarian/vegan options and callouts for mostly plant-based items. I had the vegan chile relleno and a bourbon cocktail, both great. The GF chips with three salsas and a guac starter were also really tasty.

We'd eaten here twice before about a year ago (on the same trip, it was that good!) and both times I had more meat-based entrees like tamales and carnitas tacos, both of which were awesome. I love that they're consistently making tasty, GF-safe food!

Just an FYI when we went in 5/2022 our waitress informed us that they’ve been frying non gf food in their previously dedicated gf fryer so fried food is NOT Celiac safe. However the food is PHENOMENAL and we still had an amazing meal. Waitress clearly knew how to make a meal celiac safe and no reaction for this Celiac family after :)

I recently ate here for lunch two days in a row and had previously eaten here three years ago. Lots of gluten-free items marked on the menu and each time the server was very confident that there be no cross-contamination. I had the chips and guacamole, fish tacos and steak nachos. Oh and a delicious margarita. I would highly recommend this delicious restaurant.
