The chips they serve are not gluten free. You have to ask for gluten-free chips. Unsure if there is a separate fryer so it’s always a risk eating those. I get the enchiladas and they’re nothing special. I just like to go for the drinks and company.

Double check your food here. I’m a fan of Margaritas across New England, but this location was very disappointing. I asked for corn tortillas for my tacos and the ones that arrived were noticeably flour ones. I had my friend eat a bit and they confirmed. I told the server and she claimed there was no mistake and it was a corn tortilla. Eventually she took it back and came out with new tacos, which were corn tortillas.

I'll give an extra star because I've spent some time drinking margaritas here over the years and enjoyed the food prior to being diagnosed. I met a friend here recently who ordered the wings app. Since the menu has no indication of what might be GF, I asked the bartender if he knew if the wings were fried (they had grill marks, but were fried first) and if they shared a fryer with breaded items. He said, well they share the fryer with the chips, so they would be contaminated. Hmmm, corn chips are the source of contamination? I just passed on having a bite. Nobody mentioned that GF chips were an option. I'll just drink here in the future and go to Amuleto for good Mexican food.

Staff was incredibly knowledgeable. They immediately told us the standard chips might be contaminated and brought fresh baked ones that are gf. My daughter has had no issues here.

Awful experience trying to eat GF here. No GF menu, was told to ask server about GF menu options. Waited over 20 minutes for GF chips. Ordered queso which had to be replaced because we didn't have GF chips. Had to give server top 2 choices to check if they were GF. Do not waste time going here.

The restaurant is a good find, but the menu has no markings to show that it may have gluten free options, and though we did have gluten free chips but the only way to know there was chips was because of this app and the chips were not really that good. The food when we did get it was very good which is why it still gets four stars.

They have separate chips which they bake in the oven instead of fry. I like the corn enchiladas. Be sure to tell them of any allergy because they usually flash fry the wrap in the contaminated oil. Still yummy and a great spot to visit with friends! Even outdoor seating in the summer!

When I told the manager that my daughter was gluten free, he immediately knew to tell me that they have corn chips fried in their own separate fryer and all the sauces were GF- perfect! Food was great also!!!

We had 3/5 of our party that was celiac. We told server and they made sure to tell us that for the most part menu items could be made gf. They even have a button when ordering that they can punch celiac. The kitchen staff bright out of food separately. We shared a fajita, enchilada and grilled shrimp salad. We had ordered something else and were told it wasn't safe. None of us got sick. I can that a win!

They understood what it meant to be celiac, they put in a special order of GF chips for salsa, and Made a special note to the chef. I did not get sick although I was expecting to. Delicious!

I was told over the phone that fajitas, grilled chicken/steak entrees, and salads were relatively safe gluten free choices. Anything fried and with a flour tortilla isn't safe.

I explicitly asked if the Tacos Americanos were safe and was told they were, but they ended up giving me a reaction.
