    I can not recommend this place enough!!! Seriously, if I could give it 10 stars I would! They had a separate GF menu available with quite a few choices! Our waitress, Jacki, was AMAZING!! She was very careful to write down which people at the table needed GF, and even went back to the kitchen to ask about a few items she wasn't 100% sure about. I ended up having the chicken fajitas that came with white corn tortillas, rice, refried beans, pico, lettuce, shredded cheese, and sour cream. They bring all the items to your table, and you build the fajitas yourself. I usually react within 10-20 minutes after even the smallest cross contamination, and here I am 24 hours later and completely reaction free! First time that's happened after eating out in a long time! The chips and salsa are even GF too!!

    Great selection, designated GF menu. Waitress seemed very knowledgeable of menu. We had fajitas and a side of guacamole salad. They did bring the quac salad with fried flour tortillas in the side so we had to send it back. They brought out a fresh batch and got it right the second time.

    Although this place says it's gluten free w/ a menu it is NOT. Their chicken is marinated in butter and soy sauce- beware! I explained it is not gluten free and the management agreed and said she was not sure why it was on the menu or why they hadn't taken it off. I ordered chips and guacamole since they also claim to have a dedicated fryer for the chips, but I got sick anyway. I ended up with that and a crappy iceberg salad with mushy tomatoes and nothing else. My advice go somewhere else!

    It's hard to eat out in this area and I felt very comfortable here. They don't season their fajitas much, but I was just happy to eat out without going to the grocery store. The salsa is more a pico consistency and I ate bowls of that stuff!

    We had luck here despite others reviews. They have a decent gf menu. Daughter had sour cream enchiladas and enjoyed they. Also very happy to find out they use a dedicated fryer for their chips so she was able to enjoy the chips and salsa with the family. Had some issues with the waiter not being very knowledgeable but husband tracked down the manager who was very knowledgeable and nice about all our questions. Son is severely allergic to nuts too. We are a train wreck when eating out 😜

    my son and I both ordered GF entrees. They were great. We REALLY liked the refried beans. I think they were black, not pinto. We also liked the flan. great place!

    Not great but not bad and convenient as it's right across from Ripley's Aquarium. I didn't get sick! The chips, salsa, rice, beans (no cheese bc I don't do dairy) are GF! The GF menu is small but there were a lot of choices IMHO. One of the owners has celiac so the staff was very knowledgeable. The food was meh but I could eat a lot of it and I didn't get sick.

    Food was not good at all. Then I got really sick. I would not recommend this place at all, Celiac or not.

    Good food. GF menu. There is no dedicated fryer so the chips are not gluten free- the menu says they are.

    I give this restaurant 5 stars for being celiac friendly, but 3 for food quality. My meal was so-so, BUT I could eat with my family and my server took great care to make sure there was no cross contamination (and there wasn't!).

    We had a wonderful experience here! The staff was very knowledgeable about cross contamination and how to keep our daughter's flood safe for her to eat. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer for their French fries and a gluten free menu. We spoke to Britney, the manager, and she was extremely helpful, even suggesting items that they could prepare that weren't on the menu. We will absolutely come back, even though were live about an hour away it will totally be worth the drive.
