I was able to have a good Mexican restaurant experience. They said their chips are currently cooked in a dedicated fryer, and they do have a separate gluten-free menu.

They do not have a GF menu. The server went through the menu item by item and was very helpful. I did NOT get sick. They do not have a dedicated fryer so therefore there is cross contamination risk of the chips and some rice dishes.

The manager came out to help me with what to eat, he told me that the meat is marinated in beer(which is made with wheat), the rice and beans were gluten free, and that they can salt and pepper my meat for me instead if making it the regular way,l. They had 5 gluten free sauces, I ordered a enchilada and they made it with a corn tortilla(they usually don't) it was good, did it contain gluten, idk they said no. Was it cross contaminated, idk I have no symptoms and fell upon celiac accidentally.

Super poor GF menu choice although they do have a GF menu. No meat options. No chips. My son was served his Gf quesadilla on corn tortillas on top of fries despite being told no fries. They remade it but definitely wouldn’t ever come back or recommend this restaurant for GF or celiacs.

Husband is probably in remission of celiac so take it with a grain of salt. So far we have had no bad experience here since the manager posted on FB. They will come and warn you which is understandable, I appreciate it. It really depends on the day on who is comfortable and not comfortable.

The manager, Shawn, is the first manager that has come out to speak with me directly since being diagnosed. He basically said there isn't anything that one with celiac can eat here (even the rice has gluten in it). BUT they do have a gluten free menu which is just basically items that can be modified. He asked what I needed to have in order to be safe, and I asked for them to change their gloves and clean the work area. He was even going to ensure the food was going to be cooked on top of foil. My go to Mexican food were cheese enchiladas before my diagnosis and this is the first time I'm going to be able to enjoy my favorites. Truly appreciate this place! He said that they could even do chicken fajitas (as long as it's chicken that isn't marinated) and they could do it on the flat top (which would take longer).

Very few gluten-free options. They marinate the fajita meat in beer. The roasted chicken is gluten-free, but I found it very dry. Not my first choice for gluten-free tex-mex!
