    Overall, we had a good experience and were well taken care of. Be warned that their menu identifies 85% of the menu as gluten free, but when the wait staff learned we were celiac, they identified a lot of cross contamination. Two waiters and the general manager (Mitch) worked with us to modify our orders to meet our needs. In the end, we were satisfied and felt our meal was safe.

    Not concerned about allergies at all. I asked multiple questions and was very specific about needing corn tortillas. My fajitas came with flour tortillas that look almost identical to the corn. Unfortunately I ate half of one before I realized. We also have a dairy allergy. Tacos and cheese arrived with cheese on them and there was a side of sour cream that I requested to be left off. I will not return.

    NOT Celiac friendly. I would leave 5 stars on the service, the wait staff and manager were very friendly. This restaurant says most of the menu is GF, however they use a shared fryer, which makes it not GF/celiac friendly. I came home sick. Guessing it was either the chips or the refritos if they used oil to freshen them. Many items are made in the shared fryer, including the rice..beware.

    Menu is well labled for what contains gluten. Chips are GF. Few GF vegetarian options, but what they have is tasty. Server was very supportive around both Celiac and vegetarian needs.

    Great place to eat. Most of the menu is GF. I have multiple food allergies and the chef did a great job preparing a meal that met my needs. Highly recommend a stop here!

    This place was great. Their menu marks what has gluten instead of what doesn't because of the huge selection of gluten free options. Made everything from scratch even several of their drinks. The chips and salsa were great and their fajitas were even better!

    So glad I used this app and found this place. The staff was so friendly and didn't make me feel that my celiac disease was an inconvenience for them at all. Most of the menu is gluten free and everything is clearly marked. Everything I ate was delicious and I wish there was one closer to me in Boulder.

    Very happy here. The food was excellent, the service great, natural ingredients, real fruit in their margaritas. The menu is marked with items that aren't gluten free, and where to ask for corn tortillas instead of flour. I would definitely come back when in the area again (from California).

    Food was delicious and staff was very helpful and friendly! Over 97% of their menu is "naturally" gluten-free. My husband and I had a great meal and didn't have any reaction!
