    First I think it's important to know that they have a dedicated GF fryer and so the chips and salsa offered as you are seated are GF. That's often a stickler...the place can do GF food, but not the chips. Many items are available GF. Tell the server, who are knowledgeable regarding what can and can't be made GF. I have the Chili Verdi Cheese Fries, which were pretty good. If you do it as a shared appetizer, I'd recommend the large serving. I did find the food a bit lacking in seasoning (I'm not really in to really spicy food that burns the tongue and ruins the taste buds) so you may need to add salt. My wife and I went there on a Friday night and got there at about 4:45. By 5:30 the place was packed and folks were waiting. Many of the customers would be called "seniors" which may explain the food needing more salt. I definitely recommend this restaurant as a great place for a good meal.

    I would definitely eat here again. The staff was knowledgeable regarding gluten free items on the menu. They even have their own dedicated frying oil for GF food!! I had the taco salad and they prepared a corn tortilla bowl for me in their GF frying oil. And best of all, I didn’t get sick!

    Great service but tastes like sadness. It's like going to eat Mexican at your gringo grandparent's house who suffer from ulcers and are on salt-restricted diets. My toddler was starving and every time he took a bite he said "gross" and he loves non-spicy Mexican food. I wanted to love it. They were so helpful and accommodating to gluten free. It was just that bad.

    Gluten free but the chimichanga was tasteless. chips and salsa are also gf. I feel this site is only to share if gluten free or not and this restaurant is.

    They can do nearly everything on the menu gluten free, except for the red enchilada sauce. They have gluten free flour tortillas, and a dedicated fryer. And the food has been really great every time we go. They write down the gluten free meals with a red pen so it won't be missed. I'm so happy we found them!

    They can make almost anything on the menu GF, including the chimichanga. Great place to go if eating GF. It is delicious!
