I ate here while on vacation. I ordered off the gluten free menu and was very clear with my server that I had a severe gluten allergy. I ended up having to use my EpiPen and go to the ER for anaphylactic shock.

Just don’t. The food is not good. No separation so I definitely wouldn’t try it if you’re celiac

Does NOT have a dedicated fryer, so no tortilla chips. Asked about margaritas and the manager came and talked to us. Basically he advised us to be leery of everything on the gluten free menu unless you're only gluten sensitive.

I really appreciated his honesty. We left without eating.

We ate here for dinner and when I asked if the chips were fried with flour tortillas the waitress looked at my like I had 9 heads. She went and asked and they are fried in the same oil as flour tortillas. I looked at the gluten free menu and it was nice. My husband and I got the fajitas for 2. It looked to be no different size than a single serving. Over all it was not a great experience and I would say if you are overly sensitive to cross contamination, don’t get the nachos or eat the chips. And the food was only mediocre at best.

I have eaten here several times with no problems until last week. I ordered the sour cream & cheese enchiladas. I ate one of them and within 30 minutes of leaving was violently ill. I checked the other enchilada that I had taken to go and the tortilla was flour instead of corn. They haven't even bothered to respond to my message.

I ate there yesterday. They have a separate GF menu. According to them, the cheese dip, is not GF because it has pork grease in it. I have celiac and had some without any reaction! They messed up my simple order, and the manager brought out my correct order and apologized. The server did not seem to be overly concerned on whether my order came out GF or not!

Biker friendly - parking and easy access Close to authentic Mexican from those who have traveled to Mexico From a GF diet standpoint- there was a GF menu, but the staff were or knowledgable..."I have less thana handful of people who order from the GF menu... This is a good restaurant, but if you want to be assured your dietary needs are considered by the staff, look elsewhere.

We went to the location in gatlinburg and when asked the host at the door about the gluten free menu he handed us one. I then asked to make sure about the "dedicated fryers" and he said they use the same fryers/oil for everything. He said "if there is an allergy I wouldn't eat the chips." So the dedicated fryer info is FALSE or the host was not knowledgable. Luckily I asked since our 4 children have celiac disease and it could have ruined a good 12-24 for most of them on our vacation. Not impressed with the restaurant overall.

It was not bad. The meats without seasoning were bland. The lack of cheese in my enchiladas was strange and left only fried hamburger. Overall if I needed a taste of Mexican I would come back but I'll keep searching for something more authentic tastimg. The price was very reasonable.

Didn't get sick here, but could've had a better experience. First off, it took a while to even get seated though it was not busy. Ordered chicken enchiladas at the server's suggestion only to have him come back a few minutes later to say the chicken wasn't safe. Ok - at least they caught it, right? Was then told that shredded or ground beef was safe. I ordered the shredded beef only to have ground beef on the plate when it got to me. I honestly didn't even realize I got the wrong thing until after we left (a long, tiring day and trying to keep two toddlers happy during the meal kept me from noticing). It's a double edged sword - at least the choices I was given were both apparently safe, but the fact that I didn't get what I actually ordered makes me uneasy about going back. I feel like I just got really lucky. That said, the meal was decent and I didn't get sick.

Server didn't know if they even had a gluten free menu. Thankfully I had looked online before going. A separate lady brought my fajitas out and I had to ask which one was gluten free. she looked confused and then said it was the one without the refried beans, I has to have black due to the cheese. Then I looked and saw cheese on mine and asked about it. She said the cheese should be fine. Hmmm, should be doesn't sound very assuring. Very disappointing experience.

Yummy and big gluten free menu. Does warn on menu about cross contaminating but that is typical. I had no issues and the server even warned me not to try something that my husband ordered ordered bc it had Gluten in it.

The food was good. We went over Labor Day weekend in 2014 and They recently changed their chips to where they are 70% corn and 30% wheat flour. These are the same chips used in the gluten free menu so beware!

They have a GF menu and a dedicated fryer for chips. The chips and salsa are great. BUT the cheese and refried beans are not GF because they are created and shredded a non-GF area and the USDA will not certify them as GF. This one change - having a GF area - would make a huge difference. Overall, I'm disappointed.

How can they not provide a shredded cheese or cheese dip that's gluten free ?? If the owner was a true celiac he would know that's one of the easiest things to make gluten free or find already gluten free. The salsa is AWFUL...they need to call it pico de gayo and not salsa. It's celiac friendly but not very good.

The gluten free menu has a large variety to choose from, which is a plus. We ordered the chicken fajitas, which had no flavor at all. Tasted like boiled chicken with no seasoning at all. My kids enjoyed eating the gluten free chips but refused to eat their meals.

Excellent experience for the GF customer. We were told the owner is GF; therefore, there is a lot of attention to preparation, the orders are keyed in as GF, and the staff has great attention and understanding of the issue. There is a whole menu dedicated to GF options. So if you've been missing good ol' Mexican fare this will help with the craving!

Mexican restaurant with great Gluten Free options. Staff was aware of GF needs. The chips are safe and the salsa is made fresh daily. I enjoyed the mango margarita and the fajita nachos. The nachos even came out with a I'm Gluten Free flag on them! Would recommend asking for shredded cheese melted on the nachos as the queso had gluten in it. Would go back.
