NOT Celiac Friendly. Be sure to ask how they prepare everything you plan to eat. For example: The corn chips are fried in the same oil as the flour tortillas and breaded items. Even the salads have gluten in them due to the way they are prepared. I was So sick even though I asked All the right questions, so beware.
I ordered the chips and salsa which were labeled gluten free, and chicken tacos. I Told the person taking my order of my gluten allergy as well. She said her son had a gluten allergy too and assured me what I was ordering was safe. I Was soooo sick and missed work all weekend because of it. After reading the reviews I see that the chips are NOT gluten free. Horrible. Don’t eat here if you have an allergy or are celiac, as they aren’t knowledgeable.
Zero stars ! They have things in their menu as gluten free but they are NOT... celiac watch out. The menu has the chips as gluten free and after I ate them the waiter told me they are fried in same fryer as everything else. I was upset and asked for a manager. She came and told me ... no they are safe, they are fried in a different fryer. I asked are you sure ? She said yes. Then she came back and said well you should not eat anymore , sometimes the kitchen fry other things there. She was rude and inconsiderate when I told her I was going to be sick. she didn't seem to care and walked away. I asked to talk to the chef and she told me he was too busy to come out. We left and didn't order anything else. Don't trust the menu or the manager!
The gluten-free options are clearly marked on the menu. The corn rajas tacos and the cactus tacos were both delicious. We were in between lunch and dinner so the restaurant was empty. The bartender waited on us and he was very attentive - even brought a third salsa for us to taste.
I saw good reviews that this place was celiac friendly but that isn't necessarily true. I called in advance to ask if the chips were gluten free and the lady said "Yes, corn chips are just corn!". I asked if they had a dedicated fryer for the chips and she hesitantly said "yes". I said are you sure? She said "yes". I said the chili rellenos and other fried items are in separate oil? She said "Yes". So I apologized for asking so many times and told her I have Celiac disease and just need to be absolutely sure! Well, she then got a pep in her voice and said she wanted to go check for sure! After a few minutes she returned and said "NO" the chips are NOT gluten free because they are fried in the same oil as their churros, breaded cinnamon sticks! Glad I asked 5 times!!!! We ended up bringing in a bag of chips, because they said I could, and they assured me of many other gf options. Almost half of the gf options had the home made chips in them and they still advertised the dish as gf. It made me wonder if the other dishes were actually gf. They were not knowledgeable enough for me to ever go back. The food was just ok anyway and I did get gluten!😞
This place was incredibly delicious!! Like, really, REAALLY good! I got it passing through, weird location, literally part of the same building as the largest "gentlemen's club" in the world?? But good! I ordered empanadas and they were so good but super small, like an appetizer. I wish I had known before, I would have loved to have an actual meal from here. And open 24 hours?!? That's amazing! Good quality ingredients, I would go back in a heart beat.
Food is fabulous. Thoughtfully sourced and gmo free, as well as a lot of organic ingredients. Appetizers- guacamole & cheese skillet (we thought it was a cheese dip) and both were amazing! Fajitas with corn tortillas were delicious, along with the kids' skirt steak with house chips. Only downside: LOCATION. The entrance is right next to the Sapphire men's club. If you have kids, get to the restaurant early before the club-goers arrive. Highly recommend.
Authentic Mexican food! My first time trying anything authentic and it was nice that they were organic, non-GMO, and most of the options are naturally gluten free (as indicated on the menu) and many of the options that are not automatically gluten free can be requested gluten free. They are VERY ACCOMMODATING. We ordered 1 paco mole sampler (enough food for 2-4 people) and since we checked in on yelp we got a free flan desert! I am very impressed all around.
