    After much confusion from the waitstaff- my son had queso and salsa only (we brought chips). He got gluten, and threw up in the bathroom. This is the first reaction he's had in years, and we eat out all the time. The manager was certain there was no gluten, however I am more certain that there was. Don't chance it!!

    My son has celiac and I am gluten sensitive. My son does not have overt symptoms, so we do not always know for sure when he has been it is very tricky. The first time we went we were told the chips and salsa were gluten free. I felt very bloated and tired after that meal but thought it was just because I ate too much. we went a second time and at that point, the waiter mentioned something about shared fryers sort of nonchalantly.. which was contrary to what the waitress said the first time. I questioned again...and I was told they share the fryers for the chips and other gluten items. We were specifically told this wasn't the case the first time. It is upsetting how careless they are with people's health. No, my son does not get diarrhea nor will he die on the spot; however gluten (even an extremely small amount) damages his intestine and immune system causing serious long term complications. Very disappointing.

    If you're gluten free, order the fish Taco's. The redfin is amazing. Also, if you can find a way to get Jason as your server, you'll be very happy. Great young guy who did an awesome job. redfish is really good here.

    This is not a celiac friendly restaurant. All of the food has gluten. The chips are made in a shared fryer, the salsa has gluten as well. Everything has Jubilee seasoning in it which is not gluten free.

    On my first visit I inquired about the gluten free options. On recommendation, I ordered the Vegetarian Enchiladas. I returned each day the three days I was in the area. I also had the chips and salsa. I didn't have any problems after eating. The Enchiladas were made with corn tortillas, and the staff seemed informed and helpful.
