Corn chips have their own fryer! Most tacos can be made GF by swapping flour tortilla for a corn one. I ordered the nachos, they were not very good but I didn’t get glutened!

Love this place but when you order don't forget to ask for corn tortillas.

The menu had very few options and the staff did not understand what gluten free is. Not celiac friendly either

Excellent sandwich (porkie) and good GF bread option! I told them I was sensitive and they apparently have a protocol. Not sick and definitely enjoyed the meal. They seem to have a never ending line but get food out to customers quickly. Planning to come back!

Ate here last year with good results. This year (2018) VERY disppointed. Received a GF menu but waitress couldn't care less. Received two fish corn tacos next to mexican rice (which gf menu says is not gf) and beans with a chip in them (no dedicated frier). After explaining the gf menu to the waitress she offered to just take the tacos off the plate. Ended up with two new tacos and some horrid beans.

There are four appetizers on their gf menu...all have asterisks because they contain something from the contaminated frier. They have corn tortillas but the rice is contaminated. Why pay full price for a partial meal ? Good fish tacos - go to Coconuts ,

No dedicated fryer for chips! Was told by server that they had items on menu that was gluten free. Didn’t stay for meal without being able to eat chips.

had breakfast, Popeyes omelet was delicious!

went back for dinner, was pleased to find out they now have a dedicated fryer for tortilla chips! unfortunately dinner was only so-so, tried the guacamole, beef fajitas, and veggie fajitas, didn't have much flavor. I didn't get sick, server was knowledgeable and I felt safe with everything I got, so 5 stars for GF, but really only 3 for the actual food. salsa was great.
