I went in with high expectations and left with a stomach ache. The stomach ache passed fairly quickly so it must have just been a bit of CC. The really disappointing part was the bland and totally uninteresting enchilada and margarita that I had. I really wanted to love this place. Sigh.

Mexican is always a go to for me and this was no exception! Homemade corn tortillas were to die for and huge portions! A little pricey for Mexican but definitely worth the money!
Must go authentic Mexican food delicious. I’ve eaten there several times never any trouble just don’t order anything fried in batter
So good! Huge gluten free menu. Excellent wait staff and fantastic food. My non-gf husband said best fajitas he's ever had and that is saying a lot! If we lived here we'd be regulars.
I’m not celiac but I suffer extreme symptoms from being glutened. They have a knowledge of gluten-free. The fajitas were amazing! Just know that the Mexican rice has gluten.
— Separate gluten-free menu
The style of food, using majority of corn based, enables there to be PLENTY of gluten free options, aside from FLOUR tortillas which, last time we went, were no longer being used
AMAZING AND INCREDIBLY FLAVORFUL FOOD! This was not on my "approved" list for gluten free before traveling down to New Orleans, but when our first place plans fell through El Gato Negro saved the day! It had great reviews, so we decided to give it a go - and I am SO glad we did!
We sat in the cute outdoor patio area, just the two of us, which made it feel like a private date - our waitress was super informative and let me know I could have pretty much everything BUT the flour tortillas, which they don't use currently, bonus perk for me. Complimentary chips and salsa greet you as you mull over what to order...(again GF!).
I went for the pork fajitas, which were served SIZZLING with a medley of fire roasted/charred veggies and SO much flavor, along with a side of rice, lettuce, tomatoes (no beans for me!) and sour cream. I loved my meal so much I didn't even NEED to put them in the fajitas it came with!
A MUST TRY !

Very large menu, knowledgeable staff. Complimentary chips and salsa are fried off-site in a dedicated fryer, according to manager.
For my meal, I had chicken quesadilla with rice and beans. Very, very good.
Also, location is fantastic!
