Not celiac friendly

The "gluten free chicken enchiladas" were horrible, the chicken inside was pink and it looked like canned chicken, and I ended up with an upset stomach. The order was supposed to come with 3 enchiladas and it only came with 2👎👎

Everything is fried together. Definitely NOT GLUTEN FREE.

While they offer gluten free options, the tortilla chips are cooked in the regular fryolator, making them not gluten free. The manager came out to take our order since both my husband and I were ordering gluten free. I have gluten sensitivity, and my husband has Celiac. We did not get sick, but the food was awful! I ordered Pollo a la Crema and the cream sauce tasted burnt. I couldn't finish it. Should have sent it back, but thought it had very little flavor regardless of the burnt aftertaste. My husband wasn't overly thrilled either.

I went here for dinner this weekend. When I informed my waitress that I had celiac, she was very understanding. I asked about the tortilla chips - she said that they bake the chips in the same place as the burritos. Then she cut up some corn tortillas for me to eat with the salsa. They weren't fried, but at least I didn't feel left out. They also mark on the menu if the items are GF and have quite a few options.

GF options clearly marked on menu, one of my favorite spots for a safe meal out! Can't beat the giant margaritas either. Not sure if tortilla chips are fried in a shared fryer. Have never had a problem here- try the enchiladas suizas. Yum!

I got very sick from this restaurant. Not gluten free although they promised they were.

Chips are NOT safe -- shared fryer. No GF menu. Able to substitute corn tortillas, though. Server checked with kitchen on pork marinade and should be gluten-free.
