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.

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, even the chips are GF, ( unlike On theBorder). But...it's tex mex, and sometimes a little lack-luster.

They weren’t sure about the chips and salsa being gluten free. When they went to check, the waitress said they were and the other young man said they weren’t, so they were taken away from our table. No biggie. But...the food was average at best, and we (both celiac) were feeling sick within an hour of eating here. Save yourself the pain! Also, gluten free and vegan are two different things, so having them on the same square of the menu isn’t too good on their part...

This was usually my go to restaurant with a decent amount of choices. Well, they’ve changed their menu and now offer enchilada, fajita, nachos or two types of salad. About 5 main items total. Ugh! So disappointing!
