    **Update: 7/21/2015 We just made another trip to Arizona and stopped at the Hotel El Capitan Dining room. I did call a head this time because of the other review and was assured that they still had gluten free meals available. When we got there sure enough several options were gluten free (Hamburger no bun, and Salmon) but that was about it. Still a great hamburger but I did change my 5 stars to 3 because their gluten free menu is gone. ******************************************************************** My kids of course were looking forward to pasta and like any parent of a celiac kid I had packed some precooked gf mac'n cheese. The kitchen staff and restaurant were happy to heat it up for us and let them eat that instead of ordering from their menu! (I guess I'll and another star for that one) {}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{} **original review This has been our annual "half way" stop between Austin and Phoenix Arizona for years!! This restaurant will surprise your taste buds; who expects to find fine dinning in a dinky little town? I am so glad we happend upon this place.Most hotels (other than Hotel el Capitan of course) won't mention this restaurant because it slightly more expensive than others that you find in Van Horn but even with 2 kids under 10 it is worth the extra change!When we first started stopping here they did not have a gluten free menu but would always send the chef out to go over our options, A few trips ago the chef not only remembered my family and I but told me he was researching gluten free menu options. This winter we stopped in on our way to Phoenix for the holidays and we were greeted with a small gluten free menu that includes pasta, hamburger (no ordinary no-bunned hamburger gourmet and GREAT), and typically one of the specials of the day. The service is great and the food is divine! Plus they have a great wine selection a welcome treat after 7 hours in a car with 2 kids!

    Called today 2/6/15 and was told they no longer have a gluten free menu and the chef would ABSOLUTELY NOT accommodate anyone with a gluten allergy. Sad, as there seem to be no other options here.
