The west side location does not have a dedicated fryer for chips. Although they claim to have a gluten free menu, they do not take any precautions against cross contamination, and their gf menu is mainly proteins and toppings (no sauces, no tortillas, etc.). It's not worth the risk, in my opinion.

Dedicated fryer for the chips!! Yay!! I ordered a taco and enchiladas. The taco was good, the enchiladas were eh. They were absolutely packed with meat!! The ground beef is NOT GF! The gf menu is out of date, and the waitress had to keep coming back to ask me what I wanted instead. The staff and manager were good at finding answers and did a great job with making sure that my food was handled safely. I wasn't super impressed with the taste of anything, buti was very thankful for the safe meal!

They have naturally gluten free options on their allergy menu. Unfortunately, the local haciendas do not use a dedicated fryer for their chips so I have to bring my own. Am able to get a black bean with corn shell taco, rice and beans which makes for an alright meal when out with friends.

Staff seemed unsure about gluten free. Food didn’t make me sick but everything is bland and cold.

Gluten free menu. Staff not as knowledgeable as they could be. Edited after second trip: ordered a tostada that was supposed to be GF and on a corn tortilla. It came with a fried flour tortilla. Won’t eat here again.

The waitress was so nice and helpful. Went out of her way to make sure everything would be safe. Chips and salsa were safe (My family liked the salsa but I thought it was too much like ketchup). I had a taco with rice and beans on the side. Not that great but I was grateful to have this place around.

Wonderful service by Lexi and another waitress that understood Celiac’s. They provided me with a gluten free menu, changed gloves in the kitchen and was told the manager would oversee my order.

Do not eat here if you have any type of allergy. They don’t care. I stated that I had a gluten and dairy allergy and my tacos came out on flour tortillas with cheese. I asked if they were corn tortillas and they stated they were flour. Then they brought me out corn tortillas and they were clearly on the grill with the rest of the food. I never ate it because I didn’t feel comfortable but I bet I would’ve gotten sick if I did. The server couldn’t care less. Avoid this place at all costs.

I will never eat here again. My daughter has celiac disease and she ordered a salad off their gluten free menu. Her salad was served with croutons. When the waitress returned with her new meal she said the kitchen staff didn't know what gluten was! I asked to speak to the manager and she told me their staff didn't know what gluten free meant and it would be too hard and expensive to educate the staff about it. I asked her why they even had a gluten free menu if their staff was unable to prepare gluten free food!

This could be a great place if the would get the gluten out of their sauces. The chips are prepared in a dedicated fryer. I really like their salsa and the bean and cheese dip. They have a gf menu. The problem is every time I order from the gf menu my food comes out different, I never know what I am really going to get. This tells me that the kitchen staff isn’t trained. The menu says you can order gf enchiladas, but with out the sauce and the tortillas. What do you get then?
