    waitress very knowledgeable concerning Celiacs. My grandson had the enchiladas with no problems. He said they were very good. Tortilla chips are not GF and the waitress panicked when she ssw my other grandson ( he does not have Celiacs ) was eating the chips.

    They have a gluten free menu and a knowledgeable staff. I asked if they would also change their gloves. Be aware that the tortilla chips are not safe but this is noted on the menu. A great find!

    Haven't had enchiladas in forever! Had the bison enchiladas, rice and beans. Very good. Also had a house margarita. Staff was very knowledgeable and nice. No reactions.

    Food was delicious. I let my waitress know I had Celiac and had no side effects from lunch. We ordered Queso and while the rest of my party ate it with chips, I asked her to please bring me corn tortillas, which she did without question. I had the spinach black bean enchiladas which were quite good. I even splurged and had a Boylan's Cherry Soda. Would eat here any time.

    Bison enchiladas are phenominal; however, my food had a fried tortilla chip in it, (fried with gluten items) and I didn't notice it until I had eaten half of an enchilada. I'm currently sitting in the restaurant as the rest of my party finishes. The owner did not come address the issue, but it is extremely busy tonight. Eat here at your own risk.

    This place was so good, my husband and I came here two nights in a row on our trip. Probably one of the best if not THE best Mexican restaurant I've been to. I wish we had one in Denver. Also, I didn't get sick and the staff was very knowledgable about gluten free options. The only downside is they didn't have any GF desserts.

    Food was good, you can't have anything from the fryer. Within an hour of eating my husband (celiac) felt awful the rest of the night so there had to be contamination. Somewhere.

    Very celiac friendly! They made my daughter grilled cheese with gluten free bread even though it wasn't specifically on the menu. Also knew to warn us that the corn ships were not fried in a separate fryer so we should avoid them. Food and service were also great.

    Awesome! The food was incredible. We had lunch on a Monday and the service was great.

    I would definitely recommend this restaurant to other people with Celiac Disease. Yes, the service is not the greatest, especially on a Friday or Saturday night when they are packed with tourists. Visit Sunday-Thursday instead. But the food is actually quite tasty, and there are 19 items to choose from, which is a lot in the GF world. I had the Nachos and the Pollo Con Creama, and had no problems whatsoever, even with the warning about the shared fryer. Definitely thumbs up.

    This is a restaurant I will definitely frequent when I am in Estes Park! I love tortas and thought my days of enjoying these delicious sandwiches were gone, but not here! They have a gluten free torta on delicious bread (that I found out is made in Loveland, CO but I didn't get the name of the bakery). I was in heaven. The gluten free menu shows you which items are strictly gluten free and which items have a risk of contamination (due to a shared fryer), and they will offer special gluten free sides for your meal. The corn salsa was delicious!

    Suprisingly rich flavored and unique tasting foods. Friendly staff and our orders came very quickly.

    Great place! I got the gf fajitas (no soy sauce) with corn tortillas. It came with a Mexican mozzarella that was delicious! Great service, atmosphere, and food. I'll be back for sure! Oh and the staff said they can do a gf version for almost anything on the breakfast menu, except pancakes.
