Update: they no longer offer a gluten free menu and cannot guarantee protection against cross-contamination. It's unfortunate they've opted to no longer service gluten free customers since they have the best Mexican food in town.

(Dec 2013) To start with, you are handed a professional laminated gluten-free menu, not a copy-of-the-month allergen menu that you have to decipher and compare with a regular menu. The chips and salsa are gf, the chips are not contaminated with wheat in processing. There is a decent selection on the menu in each category to choose from. To help avoid accidental mix-ups in the kitchen they do things like "stacked enchiladas" instead of the traditional rolled. Great service at this location too. I've been dining at this location for five years and never once had poor service. Oh, if you like hotter salsa, just ask the server. They have some by request.

I go to the one by the old Desert Ridge mall. I get the enchilada layer with black beans plus chips and salsa. Never have a problem here. They are super helpful with my meal. It's a bit spicy so I get guacamole to help cool it down.

They have no set procedure to ensure a GF meal. I have a success with the Steak Fajita's. Other items I've gotten sick from. Good Luck!

I asked for the gf menu- they only had one copy and couldn't find it so they had me pull it up online. I ordered the Corn Crisps from the gf menu. I asked the waitress to please ask the cook if there was any cc with this dish. She came back and said "It is safe. It is only cheese, salsa and a fried flour tortilla ". I'm like "The corn crisps have a FLOUR tortilla?" She said "Yes". I said "But i just explained that I am allergic to gluten!?" She said "yes, so this will be safe for you. Normally we make it with corn but we ran out of ingredients so we can make it with regular tortillas." She was sweet but she was really confused.

At this point, I realized i couldn't trust their food so I didn't order anything and my family ate without me.

I had already eaten the chips that came first, as the waitress said they were corn. 1 hour later I was in a gas station restroom, very sick.

DO NOT EAT HERE

(I am a mildly sesitive Celiac)

Separate GF menu, although when I ordered the fajitas and told them it was for Celiac, they came out with flour tortillas instead of corn. They were very nice and redid the dish and comped that item, but I’m not sure how safe the place is (I’m asymptomatic).
