    Food was good. Gluten free items clearly noted on the menu. My order was messed up, but they fixed it quickly.

    There were many GF choices on the menu. I choose the Flautas and a cheese tamale. They were kind of bland so I asked for their verde salsa and it was just what they needed. As of the next morning... no reaction!

    I got glutened!!! Ordered chilaquiles, assured that they are gluten-free and had chips, salsa, and cheese dip. Everything was marked on their tiny print, complicated menu as gluten free, but it made me extremely warned!!

    It was ok. Nothing special. Get the cheese dip. Don't get flauntas.

    As a celiac, I dined here once in 2015 and three times in 2016 and had no gluten reactions. The many gluten-free choices are marked in the menu and most of the staff are knowledgeable. I say "most" because two servers were not fluent in English, but just ask for a manager, if you are not comfortable. We were there on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. The place was packed on Saturday evening at 6:00, but not overly busy the other two nights. I have been pleased to find a Mexican restaurant where I feel safe and have many good gluten-free choices. Many Mexican restaurants seem not to offer GF options.

    Very disappointed! We ate here last year and didn't have any problems, but seems to have changed hands since then. We are both celiac and both got VERY Sick from the gluten here! We had chips and salsa, enchiladas verdes and cheese enchiladas so we should have been safe, but no! Very painful experience!! Also, prices have gone way up and portions much smaller!! Will NOT return!!

    Extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff. The menu is clearly marked with gluten-free options....and there are so many!! I had chili rellenos for the first time in ten years!! (they were soft, not crisp, but so tasty, I didn't mind). my sister also ordered gf options so I could taste her authentic style enchiladas with a cold cheese. everything was delicious. The price was so very reasonable. We will definitely come back when next we are in Branson!!

    Fantastico!! We love Mexican but have never had any this good! Everything, starting with the elegant colors inside, felt upscale. No chintzy decorations here. The menu was beautifully designed, with wonderful pics and great detail taken with descriptions of options and Gluten Free was available on almost everything!!! Definitely try the Gluten Free quesadillas! Can't wait to go back to Branson to eat here again! We ate here 2 of our 3 days in Branson

    This was a real treat. The menu is marked with gluten free items, and we could order over 75% of their normal menu items. We liked it so well we came back the next night for our weekend trip. We had enchilada plates, white queso, and a Caribbean shrimp plate with plantains. Both were delicious and we had no problems. I think we'll eat here every time we go to Branson!

    Fresh and homemade Mexican and Latin food very well prepared. Many items are available gluten free and are clearly marked on the menu. Also aware of other food allergies. Family owned and operated. Don't let the exterior throw you, the magic is in the kitchen.
