Overall Rating


The staff here is kind, knowledgable, and attentive! I’ve been here prior to being diagnosed with celiac disease but was excited to see what they could offer that was gluten free.

I had seen older Yelp reviews that noted a dedicated fryer, but my waiter tonight confirmed they no longer have a dedicated fryer. They fry the chimichangas (flour tortilla) in the same fryer as the chips. My waiter also confirmed the rice was fried but offered me multiple alternatives!

Really knowledgeable and friendly staff, definitely took my concerns and questions seriously. He communicated with the cooks and was so patient and kind, really made the experience. I had the enchiladas and they were great, plus the margaritas are always good. Great experience.
