I asked the waiter what the kitchen is able to make GF. He suggested tacos. Ordered chicken tacos. They came as soft shell. I explained I have celiac and it’s serious and need it to be 100% GF. Ordered 1 margarita. When the tacos arrived they seemed too thick and chewy to be just corn. Asked waiter to check with kitchen. He came back and said yes, corn. I asked if he was certain and he said yes. I ate them and drank 1 margarita. 5 hours later I vomited and continued to vomit until dehydrated. Shaking dizzy horrendous nausea unable to keep zofran down. Went to ER. Was severely dehydrated and lost an entire night to vomiting. will NEVER EVER eat here again. Called the next day to talk to the manager. She didn’t seem to care that I got really sick and reimbursed the $30- meal to my credit card. Mind you, my ER COPAY is $800.00. She told me the tacos are gluten free but the maragarita is NOT bc their sour mix has gluten(!?!?!!!!!) I don’t even care which item it was as I will not darken that doorway again.
