    Ate the sirloin steak, baked potato, and asparagus. It was excellent and had no issues at all! Highly recommend. I am not a celiac, just have a gluten sensitivity.

    Very well informed staff and food was excellent. Owner knew immediately that celiac requires no cross contamination, they had GF buns, and home made kettle chips that are made every morning with freshly filtered oil.

    The food - WOW! So much flavor! I had the buffalo steak tips with seasonal veg and a baked potato and was not disappointed. The server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful when I ordered. She even asked how sensitive I was and mentioned the fryer would not be a good choice since I'm Celiac. This is the type of service I love and makes me feel comfortable eating out. BTW, almost the entire menu can be done GF. They even have GF cornbread! Top notch food and service!

    I have celiac and had no problem eating here. There are not many options for GF, but that doesn’t ever matter to me. I’m just happy to know that they are knowledgeable and that I will not get sick having dinner with my family. I had steak, baked potato, and veggies. I asked the waitress to double check on the steak seasoning and it was fine. It was a great meal and I had no reactions after eating here.

    Staff was fairly knowledgeable about gluten free food items. I was a disappointed to leant I could not have fries or kettle chips since the fryer is not dedicated gluten free. The GF corn bread was delicious though.

    Although they don't have a gluten free menu, when I asked about it, the owner/manager (I believe) came over and explained what they had - gluten free buns, gf soups, gf salad, and delicious gf corn bread. It was enjoyable atmosphere, tasty food and I would come back in a heartbeat.

    Wait staff and kitchen are aware of precautions necessary for a gluten free meal. Their fries and homemade chips are cooked in a dedicated fryer. Great meal!

    I echo the recent reviews. Got the buffalo burger with GF bun and celiac friendly homemade chips. The burger was fantastic! Great lunch spot after going to Mount Rushmore.

    Ditto what's been said so far. Food is amazing and staff is knowledgeable. There is not a gf menu, but the owner introduced herself and assured me anything I wanted could be prepared appropriately. I am very picky about where I eat and Desperados made me feel safe and taken care of

    Staff did a great job making sure my husband could eat. He has both gluten and dairy allergies and were able to accommodate! Great chili and burgers! He had no reaction at all. We will return!

    Happiness is.... Finding a place that can accommodate your celiac kiddo! My daughter was able to order a filling meal. The desperado burger with udi's bread. It was stacked! The chips were gf, fried first thing in the morning. (Fries are not gf.) She also got a gf brownie sundae. This thing was a monster. Call ahead of you can. They have options! :)

    My 10 yo son has been recently diagnosed with Celiac. We are learning how to find good gluten free options while eating out for him. He was thrilled when we went to Desperados and they told him what the gluten free options are. They had plenty of choices. He had a chili cheese burger with gluten free bun and house made chips. For dessert they had a gluten free brownie Sunday. I had to taste it and it was pretty amazing.

    Server was kind but not knowledgeable. GF buns available. I had a club sandwich on a GF bun and it was good. They also have salads. If you have kids, this was a fun place for them- they have 10 questions for them to answer on their kids menu instead of the typical crossword puzzles etc, and if they answer all 10 correctly, they get a free cookie (of course, NOT GF).

    My server was aware of GF needs and very accommodating. There was the option of GF bun for my burger and since I couldn't have the fries (due to shared fryer, I believe) she subbed a baked potato for me. She assured me the chefs had a separate place to prepare GF meals.

    No gluten free menu but the staff was willing to work with me and said that any number of things could be made gf. I just had the baked potato and a side of green beans but they were excellent and very fresh tasting.
