    I chose not to eat here after looking through the menu and talking with the waitress. The waitress was not familiar with celiac or how to discuss cross-contamination concerns, which was a problem since the menu has a mix of meal options that do and don't have gluten. After checking in with the kitchen, she confirmed that they don't have dedicated prep space or friers, and was still unclear enough in the way she talked about gluten free to show that there was a disconnect about how much of a concern cross contamination would be for me. My wife (not-GF) liked her food, and we both enjoyed our drinks. Service was very slow.

    No gluten free menu. Tortilla shells are made from corn, they have burrito bowls, and there is a plate option but I would err on the side of caution.

    No gluten free menu available for viewing. Hostess said the waitress would know the celiac friendly options, the waitress looked at me like I was crazy and said she'd check with the kitchen. She came back a little but later and rattled off a couple caveats: no chips and nothing fried. Since I was so uncomfortable with the lack of knowledge, I wound up getting a salad, which was excellent and didn't make me ill at all. If the staff had been more knowledgeable, I'd have given them 5 stars for the food.

    NOT FOR CELIACS! Almost the whole menu is gluten free, but cross contamination is a big issue. The food is delicious, very fresh Mexican style, and the meat is smoked southern style. It's delicious, but every time I go, I get sick.
