I called the restaurant to ask about gluten free options and was told this: There is no dedicated gluten free prep area. The fajita meat, ground beef, chips, cheese dip, and rice are not gluten free. The safest items were roasted chicken enchiladas, as they were on corn tortillas, and several sauces were gluten free.

My family ordered from here, so they all had tacos, sides, and chips, but I could only eat the chicka boom enchiladas. I will say, the food I had was very good! But, in the end, who wants to go to a Mexican restaurant where all you can eat is $12 enchiladas and nothing else? I will go back if I am eating with other people, but these limitations make it it not worthwhile as a go-to restaurant.

When I asked about a gluten-free menu the manager , Brent, came to our table. He was very knowledgeable of gf issues and assured me that the folks in the kitchen are also. There are several delicious gf options. Ask questions and choose carefully.

If you ask to see the manager when placing your order they will give you the MOON! If asked they will bake the chips. The ground beef is gluten free but the steak fajitas are not. Tacos can be made with soft corn tortillas. Cheese dip has gluten in it .. we had a great experience but always deal with the public

Not celiac friendly. Their chips are gluten free but they told me up front they do not have dedicated fryers.

I eat here all the time. I get the veggie enchiladas with the boom boom sauce and I have never had any issues. My Service Dog checks it for gluten and has never alerted to the veggie enchiladas.

The manager actually told me to avoid it because the kitchen is full of flour! Don't risk it!

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!

I read they marinate their meat in beer. So even meat is not celiac safe. I have avoided so my review is not first hand experience.
