My experience is diff than the other 3-reviews. 3of4 visits, they managed to bring me flour tortillas. The “one” time it went well the sever knew what gluten was. I never saw her again. To demonstrate; last night they withheld the sour cream on the beans because gluten (I’ve never heard of sour cream containing gluten). One visit they would not serve rice & beans, later they said these items were ok (of course they sound confident, but they keep changing their damn story). It’s hard to tell with Mexican (bothers me anyway), but I believe half the time I got a reaction. I’m not celiac, but cooking at home gluten free is the only time I never have what feels like a reaction (all night heartburn & upper GI pain). Definitely something connected to wheat that acts like an allergy).

You can get tacos, enchiladas, several appetizers, guac, and the chips are ok too (but see my review).

Visiting from Savannah and was looking for a safe place to eat. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The manager came out to assure me the tortilla shells were corn and gluten free. Great cheese and beef tacos

Choices were limited, waitress knew what I was talking about, pointed out what was safe to eat, very limited. Food was bland, tasted reheated . If you crave for Mexican and in the mall, it’s an option, I would not go back again

A Mexican place with a dedicated fryer and delicious salsa! Refried beans and chicken taco were bland but black beans and enchilada were good. Server knew celiac meant no gluten and was very helpful.
