I asked for a gluten-free menu and was told there was none. The host said recipes change often, but that corn chips, corn tortillas, and black beans were OK. I ate only black beans and corn chips last night, and I am still having stomach cramps and upset digestion this morning. Do not recommend.

The employees didn’t know much about any gluten-free options. I most likely will not be going back because the employees acted like my questions were an inconvenience for them.

I'm new to this app right now, but used it in finding this place to eat. When we were seated I asked for the gf menu and the waiter said as he walked away, "we don't have one!" So now I can't trust this app. I ended up ordering my go to "safer choice" in Mexican restaurants, nachos. I'm not celiac, but if I were I probably would've left and ate elsewhere.

Service was lacking. My kids got the combo fajitas they were hot and they liked them I got the cheese enchilada plate they were just ok because they were Luke warm like they made my plate and let it get cold waiting on the others. Then time to leave it took more than 25 min just to check out.

The chips and salsa are gluten free and delicious! It's so great to be able to eat fresh chips at a restaurant! They had a limited gluten free menu, but the food was good! They were careful about cross contamination too! I will definitely go again!

Yes
