Nothing on the menu is marked as gluten free, but our server Maria was very helpful. The chips that come with salsa are NOT celiac safe as they are fried in oil that other breaded items are fried. Our server brought me some warm soft corn tortillas that they cut into smaller pieces that I could use for the salsa. The salsa was SO good! I ended up with the beef fajitas with corn tortillas. Food was very good.

When I asked the waiter what was gluten free he said, "why don't you look over the menu, you know what you can and can't normally have and if you have any questions about something just ask." That didn't give me much confidence, but I ate the fish tacos without any problem and he did check with the kitchen before I ordered. I expected the same response to the chips and drinks so I just avoided them both and just had water. It was average food and if there weren't so many other great choices I'd be more behind it, but once we had to leave we felt like this dinner was a wasted opportunity to eat somewhere great and with more confidence about what I ordered. I didn't get sick after and I'm very sensitive, but especially for the price I'd probably go elsewhere.

Everything was fine. Service was good d as if she accommodated my kiddo with celiac who had grilled fish tacos & Spanish rice. Chips were a no go due to cross contamination of the fryer.

Waiter was knowledgeable about gluten. Restaurant doesn't have dedicated menu but able to accommodate changes using corn tortillas for several items. Delicious!

The manager said he’s gluten free and most of the items on the menu are. The margaritas are great. They don’t use a mix. I love going there for taco Tuesday. Great people watching too

It appears that most shells and nachos are made from corn. However, the good is not very good. I had nachos with cheese.
