We always enjoy eating here when we are in Branson. There are many choices of gluten-free dinners. I had the chicken flautas and last time and they were delicious. This is a good place to eat if you have celiac disease.

Can’t tell

There are plenty options. Food is too salty though. Hard to enjoy anything. Order tamale and Chile relleno. I will not return. Marginally ok.

Slow service, though, the waiter did check on me after he te-order my items with salsa only. Pretty clean environment.

Foods good, but it wasn’t good enough for what we paid for. They had gluten free options for most of their items, I had the sope. They were good but a little pricey. I’ve had better Mexican elsewhere, so for me, I wouldn’t eat here unless you really want Mexican food.

Staff is very knowledgeable and had gluten free markings on the menu. They use corn tortillas for most things and what they have tasted so good! No dessert options though, but i definitely recommend their smoothies. Totally will come again.

LOTS of gluten free options. It’s rare to find a celiac safe Mexican restaurant. The food was decent, my friend with the allergy got street tacos and they were amazing! They primarily use corn tortillas for everything. The chips are gluten free regardless of asking and boy were they amazing!!! I would love to go back here with my friend and have her try all of the options.

Our server invited the manager over when I voiced my dietary needs. The manager checked in twice after that. He clarified our order when it was put in the system and offered to replace our quac that we ordered before knowing it was served in a flour tortilla. Great experience, easy to read menu, flavorful food with good portions. And not sick!

Brian was our server and he did a wonderful job accommodating my gluten and dairy restrictions. I took off a start because they do warm their flour and corn tortillas is the same spot, but after explaining that was contaminating, they understood. They just used the microwave for the corn tortillas. The rice and beans were safe...as were many other options. I would most definitely eat here again.

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!

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.
