    The staff was amazing and accommodating! They have quite a few GF options and they are marked on their regular menu. I had the taco sampler and was very happy. They give you a lot of food for what you pay and it’s reasonably priced. My husband and I walked away stuffed beyond belief and brought half our food home as well.

    We found this restaurant on our visit to Orlando the first night we arrived and fell in love with the authentic tasty food. Their menu was labeled GF with all at the safe foods and the manager even came over to check on us mid meal. Their house made corn tortilla chips and salsa were perfect! I get severe reactions and had no problem whatsoever here.

    Items marked gluten free are actually fried with items containing flour. I explained to the server I still could not eat those items. The server had the kitchen bake corn tortillas and brought them to me to dip in the queso my friend ordered. I would disregard the menu's gluten free items which are cross contaminated with gluten and discuss with your server what you can and can't eat.

    They have an extensive gluten free menu, however they have no clue what that means. Every item that said gluten free next to it is actually fried in the same fryer with gluten. I ordered a simple fish dish, nothing fried and still got sick. After speaking to the server, she answered all my questions honestly and was very helpful... However she said they made all of mistakes on the menu about gluten free options. Do not trust eating there unless you have lettuce.
