this restaurant was amazing. i attended for a buffet style event. at first the wait-staff had been accommodating me individually since i didn't know if the buffet line was gf or what risks of cross-contamination existed there. the wait staff were very knowledgeable of gluten free practices and were confident in the kitchen's ability to serve me. eventually the wait staff found out that the kitchen had prepared the buffet to be celiac safe, and i had food from there with no issue. the food itself was delicious, i've been craving mexican food that didn't taste like it was catered to the bland/beige demographics of the region, and this place absolutely delivered.

the fryer is shared, so no chips and salsa unfortunately.

We have eaten here a dozen times with no adverse reactions. Happy hour cuts the food prices drastically. Recommend the Brussel sprouts and goat cheese jalapeños.

The chips are not GF yet the nachos are labeled GF on the menu. This place is trash if you’re celiac. Don’t eat here. The menu lies and it took several tries to get accurate information

We ended up leaving without eating. They have lots of things marked as gluten free on the menu but clearly state cross contamination risk. No separate fryer and most their stuff have fried stuff on them. They also had inconsistencies. In some places their pork carnitas were gluten free and other places not. Could be a nuance but they couldn’t tell me the difference.

The waitress was not knowledgeable at all and I asked for the manager. Waited for a while and the manager didn’t come. They were too busy. Sadly not a safe place for celiacs

Menu is huge so I expected better but It was nothing special and food is just mediocre - my stomach hurt immediately after not sure if it was a celiac reaction or just not great food cause no one in our party liked the food or felt good

I’ve been here a few times with no issues. The first time I came here, several years ago, the server told me the fajitas were the only reliably safe thing on the menu, so that’s what I always order. They still have only one fryer, so the tortilla chips aren’t safe.
