Review


The manager came out and expressly told me that this place is not safe for celiac folks. No dedicated fryers, no safe prep areas. Hope this saves someone from a bad experience. I did not eat here after that warning. She specifically said not safe for celiac.

Not a whole lot of options but you can eat gluten free here. The chips are from a shared fryer so don’t eat them. My daughter had steak fajitas with corn tortillas. Very good.

Was told chips were fried in a separate fryer. The chicken was not gluten free, which was a bummer. The salsa and steak tacos I ordered were delicious!! Did not feel sick.

They have a separate gluten free menu with a lot of options. Avoid the chips as they are fried in a shared fryer. I had the Shrimp Pina Fajitas and they were great!
