    The servers didn't make me feel very comfortable that the food would be safe, but it tasted good and I had no issues afterwards. Unfortunately, the service is pretty horrible since there is one waitress, one bus boy, and one bartender for the whole restaurant (at least when I was there on a Saturday evening). The only issue I had was that I ordered a cider and they brought back a beer. Luckily I could tell the different before I drank any.

    Not sure how aware my waitress was. However food was delicious and I did not get sick. I ate the chips and also enchiladas. I had her double check on the enchiladas.

    "I have celiac" was met with a blank stare. Came here for lunch based on the good reviews. There was only one waitress/hostess on staff and was very rude when I asked to speak to a manager, she kept reassuring me everything was fine but couldn't give any specific details about any item besides that they do have a dedicated fryer for the chips. I ordered a burrito bowl and it was okay, nothing special. I did not get sick and would give the restaurant a second chance only because I think it was just the one waitress who was slammed during the lunch rush.
