IThis is one of my go-to places. I give them 5 stars because I've never been sick from eating here ( I'm Celiac and pretty sensitive) they have a separate GF menu, and I know the chips are GF as they do not fry them there ( unlike On theBorder). But...it's tex mex, and sometimes a little lack-luster.

Had the big discussion about GF, waiter did not know if chips were GF from a dedicated fryer, and if Honey Mustard dressing was GF. He had to go ask. After all the discussion of GF, I ordered the Taco Salad off the GF menu out comes my Taco Salad in a flour shell bowl. Is that a GF shell. “We only serve the Taco Salad in the flour bowl”. Uh, no. I ordered off the GF menu, and that means it comes in a bowl and not the flour shell, and don’t just dump this one in a bowl, it’s already been in contact with the shell. Shortly a new waitress came out with my Taco Salad in a ceramic bowl, and she seemed to understand the concept of gluten that so evaded the first waiter.

Don’t know what levels of precautions they take in the kitchen if the order is properly relayed. So far no I’ll effects, but based on my experience I wouldn’t trust them if seriously sensitive or celiac. The margarita was large, tasted good, and generally considered GF.

OMG... Just flew in from out of state and was looking for GF friendly places to eat. With the name had NO idea it was Mexican, What a BONUS!!! And the food was AMAZING!! They do have a separate GF menu should you desire one. Try the Naked Nachos and the Seafood Enchiladas!!! Can’t wait to finish my business in Hutchinson so I can come back at the end of the week and eat here again before I leave!!! And staff was great too!!

Unfortunately, I didn't have the same great experience as the other reviewers. Ordered fajitas... The tortillas tasted like cardboard and fell apart in my hands. The rest of it tasted ok, but I did get glutened.

Staff was very knowledgeable and assured me that precautions would be taken to prevent cross-contamination. I’ve had multiple things off of their gluten free menu and I’ve never had an issue. They were busy but managed to keep my meal safe!

3 of us are celiacs and had no problem when we stopped here. Good service and nice GF menu. I always appreciate waiters and restaurants that mark the order ticket itself as GF.

Fantastic food with a gluten free menu! I got the 2 corn enchiladas with pork, fajita veggies and Mexican rice. They had plenty of gf dishes to pick from, I had a hard time picking what to eat 🥰 The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and courteous as well! I will happily eat there again!

Came to this casual and nice sit-down restaurant with a group for dinner during our visit to see the Sandhill crane migration. Good basic Tex-Mex options with good GF availability. Our server was not that knowledgeable about celiac and GF but he immediately realized he was out of his depth and arranged for the expert to come help with our order. GF options are limited but well marked and delicious- we shared the enchiladas (we got one each of bean, chicken and beef - you can order one of each, you have to ask the server!) and the shrimp fajitas. We were initially told the chips are not GF so we avoided them, but the expert later told us they were GF, prepared in a dedicated fryer, so we had some at the end. Did not get sick at all, loved the food, happy to find a reliable GF place in Grand Island!

Combined gluten-free and vegetarian menu. Most items with corn tortillas can be made gluten-free. Some sauces are gluten-free. Tortilla chips are listed as gluten-free, but I didn't asked about a dedicated fryer.
