    Extensive GF menu and friendly service. Delicious food and great margaritas. I've been looking for a good New Mexican restaurant and I'm very pleased with the service.

    This large, mid-scale, casual restaurant has very good Tex-Mex food and the staff is friendly and well-trained regarding gluten-free. As an out-of-town celiac, I was pleased with the gluten-free menu choices. Tell your server you must have gluten-free because of allergy. Some sauces come in both gluten-free and non-GF versions. The tortilla chips are fried in dedicated oil separate from other foods. We ate there three times in one week and I never got sick (chips and chile sauce, chicken enchiladas, pinto beans, rice, huevos rancheros with papas (fried potatoes), and a green chile burger on GF bun). My wife was very pleased with all her non-GF meals. Very nice interior décor and two very attractive patio dining areas. Located on the north side of Albuquerque about 10 minutes from the hot air balloon park and about 1½ miles west of I-25.

    LOVE this place! Staff is so friendly and knowledgable. Gluten free menu is full of yummy entrees and you won't feel like you're missing out on anything. I'm not 100% sure if chips are fried in the same fryer as sopapillas are, but I are plenty of them and didn't get sick. Get the guac and a margarita!

    They have a gluten free menu with corn chips all over menu, but they fry their chips in same fryer as sopapillas. They offered to bake the chips instead, but it was really dry.
