No GF menu, but the staff is pretty knowledgeable on what is GF. They will also do what they can to accommodate any allergies, but Celiac safe is a no.

They do not have a gluten free menu but the servers are extremely knowledgeable. The chips are in their own fryer. The enchiladas are gluten free which is hard to find sometimes. The food was amazing and very safe. I have celiac and I felt completely safe eating there and I am perfectly fine after eating. I had the watermelon and beet salad which was incredible. Take off the croutons. I also had the guacamole with chips, three different tacos and the rice and beans. The food was really good and the service was great. I brought a lot of food home because everything was pretty decent size.

Both of my kids also have celiac and I cannot wait to bring them here.

The fryer for chips was contaminated the week we were there due to Chile relleno dish being fried in it. Had to ask several waiters to learn this, the rest said chips were gluten free. They gave us free cucumbers for guac due to the confusion. Had two of the tacos which waiter said were gluten free. Staff worked hard to be helpful.

The menu doesn’t have items marked but the waiter was very knowledgeable about even cross-contamination. He made me feel safe while eating at this restaurant! I would come back again!

The menu did not indicate any gluten-free items, but the receptionist and staff understood the gluten issues. When they were not sure, they checked with the chef for confirmation. Everything I ate was gluten-free, and I had no bad reactions.
