    I’m not sure if I can give 0 stars but I would if I could. The waiter had no idea what gluten was or who to ask. I pulled over the manager who was able to print off a gluten free menu but it still seemed suspect as there were some things on there I would be surprised would be gluten free. I ended up just canceling my order and having a margarita.

    Overall a good experience. Yes they have a gf menu with a few enchiladas, puffed tacos and crispy beef tacos on it. Also some of the sauces and the chips and salsa are gf. Like the previous reviewer I got the brisket enchiladas and charro beans. Luckily I read his review because there was also RICE on my plate which is NOT gluten free. So they took my plate and made me a new meal. The manager brought my new food out and assured me that they didn't just give me the first enchiladas but made me new ones. She was very kind and knowledgeable about celiac and I recommend this restaurant for anyone who is gluten free.

    Gluten free chips and basic meat and brisket are gluten free. I had brisket enchiladas and they were great. Charro beans and guacamole as a side since the rice was not listed to be gluten free. Manager was great and helpful. Be smart and you can get a good Mexican food fix.

    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!

    Just no! I should have known, but it was on the way and got a good review here. BTW It's located inside a casino. I ordered beef enchiladas with beans, apparently the rice wasn't GF. It looked terrible the enchiladas were barely warm tortillas dipped in a bland red sauce they were filled with ground beef which I thought was strange and that was it. No cheese, no seasoning. Just two helping of bland beans. So, it's a no! I have no idea if I'll get sick tomorrow, hope not. I barely touched it.

    They have a gluten free menu. I ordered the brisket nachos and didn't have any problems. The chips ARE gluten free. I will go back.

    The chips are made in another location and are shipped in. Totally safe. Several options including dessert. Food is good!
