I felt very safe! Our waitress was amazing and the kitchen staff were very aware of celiac and cross contamination and made our experience fantastic. Three with celiac in our group and it was great. The food was great, too!

The staff double checked everything for me. I would recommend following what the menu says NOT online because some of their items they listed on the website were not GF at the restaurant.

I ended up getting the tortilla soup with a side of rice and beans. A+ on soup, C+ on the sides. Margarita was great.

One choice of starter.... guac and chips. That was nice nice. Two choices of main course. I got the salmon and rice and black beans. The rice was microwave rice standard and the salmon must have been cooked for an hour. Completely dry and practically tasteless. So little choice and not good quality food at all.

Celiac friendly. I had the impossible burger on a gluten free bun and fries. They have a dedicated fryer for fries. Neat that they have vegetarian and vegan options that are also gluten free.

I ordered nachos because of a review I read here even though it was not marked as Gluten Free. They prepared it with shredded cheese instead of queso, it was delicious and I didn’t got sick.

Our waitress was very knowledgeable. They only have two entrees listed as gluten free on the menu but they have gluten free buns and a dedicated fryer for the fries. The chef modified the taco salad for me and the waitress said they can modify most dishes.

Staff is knowledgeable and cares. Just be specific about cross contamination being an issue as some of the gf items on the menu are cross contaminated.

If you have a soy allergy as well as gluten avoid. They do not understand. We discussed extensively and they still covered my hamburger plate with fries that had been cooked in soy. I drank my tea while my husband are his meal. Disappointing.
