I got so sick after eating here. There is not a dedicated fryer for the chips. Tacos would be a good choice. You just have to sit thru everyone else eating chips and salsa.

UPDATE: THERE IS NO DEDICATED FRYER FOR THE CHIPS THEY USE A SHARED FRYER. ONLY GO THROUGH A MANAGER IF YOU EAT HERE & HAVE CELIAC. THE GENERAL MANAGER KNOWS ME AND HAS CONFIRMED THAT THE CHIPS ARE NOT SAFE FOR PEOPLE WITH CELIAC.

The food is delicious but there is gluten everywhere. Chips marked gluten free but are fried in a common fryer with gluten items. Corn tortillas warmed in the same contraption as flour tortillas. Servers are somewhat knowledgeable but clueless on Celiac issues. I talked to the manager and he made sure my food was as safe as can be and didn’t touch other gluten items. he even made sure the corn tortillas were warmed away from the flour tortillas. I’ve eaten here three times and have been fine. While I choose to take the risk, it’s a big risk and I want people to understand that.

I tried to talk to the manager about mislabeled items on the menu (chips being gluten free when cross contaminated) and he was more interested in defending them menu than listening to me. He felt it falls within the governments definition of gluten free and covers those who don’t have Celiac and isn’t interested in changing it. I think if enough people complain they may listen, but since business is booming, I’m not sure they care as a whole about people with gluten sensitivities.

First of all, chips are in dedicated fryer, asked the kitchen. Had Carne Asada and it was super delish. Just really communicated with our server. She was helpful and did state that they have changed things since they opened, so maybe the fryer has changed? I am celiac and had no problems! I recommend!

All chips are fried in a common fryer. While many items are marked GF, they have fried items on them - and so are not actually GF. I only found a couple of items in the entire menu that did not, and they had dairy on them (which I don't tolerate either). My other GF colleague did not eat anything; I did, and suffered bloat, brain fog and heart burn for 2 days.

Immediately got sick after eating here. It was a really bad cross contamination. The food wasn’t worth it either. Expensive and bland.

The only reason for not 5 stars is the overall expense for what is served. I've eaten and drank here three times since it opened. I am celiac and have not had any problems. Now, the quantities of food are substantial and I leave feeling very bloated. I have not had any reactions to the food or drinks served. There are a large number of food options and drinks marked GF on the menu. The food is more fresh mex than traditional mexican. If you manage to eat everything with a couple of margaritas expect to be very full to the point of being uncomfortable.

The staff knew that the chips served were from a common fryer. That left me hesitant to order the item marked GF that came with tortilla strips on it so I avoided that. I did get glutened here as even though I ordered an item marked gf, told the server it was a medical need not a choice. I still felt bloated and lethargic the rest of the day for hours after which is one of my symptoms. When I told the server to ensure my meal is gf for that reason his reply was “It’s with corn tortillas so you’re ok”. We went about a month after they opened for lunch and service was incredibly slow and they weren’t that busy. Sadly the food was really good. I didn’t have any margaritas so can’t comment on those.
