    SO SO good!! Best chicken I’ve ever had. The dark meat was juicy and had a sweet kind of flavoring. The rice and fries were also delicious and I highly recommend to any celiac. I’ve never eaten food at a restaurant that sat so well with my EDS, IBSD, and celiac stomach!

    Tasty food, good service, and safe GF eating. After we ordered, the owner came to our table to double-check what my son's order was, to ensure it was handled properly. There is a dedicated fryer for French fries; the chicken was well-seasoned and juicy. The non-GF food was also quite good.

    I have Celiac disease and Crohn's. Needless to say, I must be very careful about what I eat. I went here and absolutely loved it. I had to stop myself from eating because it was so good and I was stuffed. I would recommend this place to anyone.

    We love this place! We come here to eat every time we come to Sunset Beach. Susana and Walter are delightful and very knowledgeable about allergies. They have a dedicated fryer so we can eat French fries and fried yuca! Clean, welcoming and very good food!

    I would highly recommend this restaurant! The chicken and sides were delicious, they have dedicated fryers, and I felt very safe eating there. The owners were very knowledgeable about GF food, and I will definitely eat there again.

    I had a hard time deciding on a rating. The chicken was the most flavorful delicious chicken I've ever tasted. However, there were a couple issues I had with our meal in general. First of all, we each ordered 1/4 chicken, one each of dark and white. When our meal arrived, you can imagine our surprise when we received 1/2 of a chicken breast with wing attached, and 1/2 a thigh with leg attached, NOT 1/4 of a chicken (and these are small chickens to begin with). Secondly, we ordered a taco and because I mentioned we were gf, I was charged an additional 20% because...gf ingredients are more expensive? It was a corn tortilla. The same corn tortilla served to gluten eaters. The tiny taco, which was hardly worth the $2 they normally charge, was definitely not worth the $3 we were charged. The size of the sides was also quite small (3 yuca fries and 3 plantains); normal sized portions of Cole slaw and French fries. If we were ever to visit this restaurant again, we would just order a whole chicken and take it to go. However, for $15 for just a chicken, we'd be better off buying an organic chicken for $10 and cooking it ourselves. As far as gluten, I'm very sensitive and I didn't react at all, so it seems fairly safe, in that regard.

    Que rico!! The owner is so nice and friendly. Dedicated fryers for everything. I had the plantains, rice, beans and a beef taco--so good and authentic! If you've never had authentic fried plantains, please try these!!

    Absolutely delish! As a tourist in north myrtle beach, I was not finding many safe gf options. The owner of mmm que rico was knowledgeable and accommodating to gf. The chicken tacos were so fresh. Just spectacular

    The BEST local tacos!! The corn tortillas are made fresh on site! The only thing is the chicken is NOT gluten free YET. The owner said he is trying to find alternative GF ingredients for the chicken. And everything in the fryer is GF!! The fried Yucca is AWESOME! I will DEFINITELY be coming back.
