Food was delicious! The waitress was knowledgeable about Celiac and brought a bowl of taco shells for me because I couldn’t have the chips since they are fried in fryer with flour. Carne Asada was flavorful and delicious. Didn’t get sick. Highly recommend!

This restaurant offers a “gluten-free” menu, however not even the chips are gluten-free. I was offered the option on corn tortillas cut and fried as an alternative. I ordered nachos off the gluten-free menu and it was not on the offered corn tortillas, but the chips that they verified were not GF. When asked about a designated GF fryer, the manager said they have one but when they get “busy” the cooks might use it for regular food items. The “gluten-free” menu has red stars all over it indicating a high risk for cross contamination. I ate nothing.

Online menu designates several gluten free options, actual menu at restaurant shows NO gluten free options. I ordered items designated as gluten free on the website and got sick. Beware!

It was awful. Do not come here. The gluten-free menu is not gluten-free. Their definition of gluten-free is that they don't use in the recipe. Everything is cross contaminated except for two items.You cannot have the tortilla chips. actually only two items on the gluten-free menu are "actually "gluten-free which are the Chile Rielleno and the fajitas

I normally order the fajitas (you must specify gluten free, otherwise they put soy sauce in them) but I decided to order the carne asda, which was on the gluten free menu. I asked my waitress to tell the cooks that I have a severe allergy and her response was "well they aren't going to do anything differently." I know this is not the case, because every other waitress I have had there has told me they will take extra precautions and might have to modify the item ordered. I got sick immediately after eating this dish. I think it was the spices, as the meat was heavily spiced.

I recommend talking to the chef/manager if you have a severe allergy.

More than half of the gluten free menu has stars on it indicating cross contamination is possible. The chips are fried in same oil as everything else and even the salsa they don't guarantee is gluten free. Not celiac friendly.

We ordered chicken fajitas and did not care for them. We prefer grilled chicken and it was more stewed chicken with tomatoes and peppers. The queso and guac were ok but not great. The salsa was ok. But 5-10 min after eating the chips my husband and I both started having stomach bloating. I ended up not even eating the rest of the meal. The waitress was good and the atmosphere was nice.
