I’ve eaten here twice and have not gotten sick. It’s great food, and there’s good options. The chips, salsa, guacamole and queso are gluten free. I also had the fajitas, which were safe.

The menu doesn’t have a ton of options but there’s definitely enough and a lot of variety in the gluten free offerings. The salsa and chips are safe. When ordering, the waitstaff let me know that they were making the food carefully to reduce cross contamination. The chicken served on the Caesar salad was honestly some of the best chicken I’ve ever had, which was surprising. Also, the drinks are marked gf, which is the first time I’ve seen that! Can’t wait to go in the summer when the street is open.

Ate here last night while in town. The food was fabulous! Lots of options for a highly sensitive celiac! My husband had shrimp wrapped in bacon with a cream sauce that was gluten free and I had enchiladas with mushrooms and spinach. Even had left overs for lunch today without any issues! I highly recommend this establishment!

Zero stars. Am here now and started asking waitress questions on how chips are prepared (fried in same oil as other gluten food) as well as gluten status of dips. She had no clue and had to ask. Came back and told me oil is a dedicated frier. Asked to speak with chef and chef said frier is used for other stuff like tortillas. Good thing I asked!! So I am sitting here NOT eating because they don't understand what GF is and I don't want to get sick!

Excellent establishment and no need for a special menu as the normal menu labels what is GF. Chips and salsa at the table are also gf (but not peanut free). Delicious and very tasty.

Great atmosphere, cute place, live music. It's attached to the Metropolis Performing Arts Center. the server was great, he knew what was gluten-free, and knew I couldn't have the chicken tortilla soup. super nice and so many options.

3 out of 4. First 3 visits were wonderful. Delicious. No issues. Tonight I had serious issues. So did my non-celiac partner. A more general food safety issue???

I have celiac and ate here once and it was great. Not a lot of gf options but they were marked on the menu and they were good at avoiding cross contamination as far as I could tell.
