    Great experience here! I had knowledgeable servers that helped me feel a bit easier about ordering. No reactions, and the food was amazing!!

    Do not go here if you have Celiac. Waiter, nice guy, but had no idea what I was talking about. The menu has items marked as GF but there was no knowledge or information about cross-contamination or dedicated fryers, grills, etc. I was told chips and salsa are fine because 'chips are just corn' Knew it was time to go when they asked if I wanted corn or flour tortillas.

    Knowledgeable servers & kitchen. We were told the owner has an autoimmune disease & keeps a gluten-free diet & that is why the menu is diverse & clearly marked.The awareness of Celiac Disease & related safe food prep was evident. Highly recommend!!

    My wife has celiac disease and we go here all the time. We love it, we always share the el charro nachos and she's never had a reaction. Love this place, good food and not too expensive

    Not gluten friendly at all!! The servers had no idea what gf was. They don't have a designated deep fryers. They were calling up the tortilla company and googling up ingredients. Ridiculous! And the food was just okay

    Baffled at the reviews. Food was okay, but they brought my flan with crunchy won ton things on it. When I asked for a new one without them, they just scraped it off and brought the same one back. No one there understood why that wasn't okay.

    Best chicken tortillas!!! Amazing Mexican food- corn tortillas are so so. Love the soup though! I go here a lot- flan can be made gluten free but you must not get the stuff on top!
