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.

I let the waitress know as soon as i got there that I needed to know their GF options, and it is their procedure to send the manager to talk to you about it. The manager specifically asked why I needed GF- when i told her I was celiac, she knew exactly what to tell me was off limits, was very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, and told me what was at risk. She baked me a separate batch of chips, and told me to order without rice bc the rice was at risk for cross-contamination. I ordered the stacked enchiladas with no rice- the corn tortillas, roasted chicken, tomatillo sauce and refried beans are all GF. It was very easy to order after speaking to the manager.

Talk to the manager before you order. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Chips were baked vs. fried and found out all meat can be made gluten free. Manager worked with me to make a custom meal that met all my dietary needs.

Celiac

Update: This restaurant is very dangerous for a celiac. All meats are marinated in beer. The corn tortillas are made on the same tortilla press as the flour tortillas. Only a couple of the sauces are safe. Chips and queso is not safe. I got extremely sick after eating here the 2nd time. I will not be back.

Original review: Our waiter was unsure what was safe so he had the manager come over to talk to me. She was knowledgeable and explained what I could eat. You have to be very careful here and make sure they know if you have celiac. They prepared me my own chips and had to clean the tortilla maker and make me corn tortillas. I had chicken enchiladas with boom boom sauce. They were delicious. Only a few of the sauces are gluten free so make sure to ask. The queso is not gluten free. They have to prepare all of the meats without any seasoning to make it gluten free also. My food was good and I felt fine afterwards. Just be careful.

Extremely helpful staff. Lots of GF options! Although, their queso is NOT GF! So, beware of the queso! But the “boom boom sauce” and “creamy jalapeño” are both GF! And both are so delicious!

The staff was knowledgeable about what menu items contained gluten or might be contaminated with gluten. Very helpful. Ground beef and corn tortilla options are safe, the chips and creamy jalapeño sauce was fine too.

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.

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).
