Absolutely the worst Mexican food I have ever had! If you want to waste your time and money on inedible food go here! Taquitos are so overcooked you might break a tooth, the tacis are disgusting, I tried the carne tacos, the taco was so soggy it could NOT be lifted from the plate & a canine would have trouble chewing the tasteless meat. Left & went to the Provisioner for an exception gf sandwich!

Outstanding food. Several options for GF. My daughter is 6 yrs old and has celiac disease. Stephenie our server was kind, understanding, knowledgeable about the menu. Happy to make adjustments to daughters entree. Fryolater is not dedicated GF so stay away from nacho chips in beginning. Great restaurant we recommend 100%!!

Authentic Mexican food with a lot of gluten free options. Most food can be made with GF corn tortillas such as tacos, fajitas and more. Many options are different meats with rice and beans which are also gluten free

I have been reluctant to come to this restaurant for years given the poor reviews on this app. I ordered a side of rice and a side of beans because I figured they had the least risk of cross contamination. They were delicious and I did not get sick.

I have eaten here twice and have only felt O-K after eating here both times. The second time I went, I asked if the entree I wanted was gluten free and the waiter did not know what gluten was. It could have been a language barrier issue, but it made me feel very uncomfortable so I would not trust that they have trained their employees well enough to accommodate gluten allergies.

I would give them a higher review but I was told the chips where cooked in a separate frier. My stomach and reviews before me determined that was a lie. I would go back to try the menu and not eat any fried stuff but naturally gluten free stuff

We have eaten here many times with my very sensitive husband. He knows not to eat the chips and avoids fried foods and has not gotten ill. The menu marks GF now. His favorite is the Mexicana Chicken.

Menu has GF next to items that are gluten free. Server said the chips would not be safe because they go in a fryer with flour. I did not eat any chips. I told server about my celiac disease. I ordered a shrimp ceaser salad. Waiter double checked that dressing was GF. No croutons on salad. I had stomach issues within an hour of eating which continued throughout the day. Something had gluten in/on it. If you are just gluten sensitive this may be ok because they have a lot of stuff that is naturally GF. However there is cross contamination somewhere. Everyone else in my party (non-celiac) enjoyed their meals. Reasonably priced.
