I had a bowl and it was quite tasty. Chips are cross contaminated and the onions in the fajitas have soy sauce (but you can do just peppers). Some tacos and other things can be gf as well.

I ordered from the gluten sensitive menu and my food came with a fried onion in it. I sent it back and didn’t feel safe to re-order.

Waitress wasn't knowledgeable about gluten free. I didn't eat the chips because it is the same fryer, definitely cross contaminated and got sick from it. I ordered the steak street tacos. The food was bad I got the dairy removed but the food didn't taste good and I got sick. They have separate online menu for gluten free but I wouldn't recommend this place at all for gluten free people.

I had a delicious meal. I used their website before hand to discover that there are about 10 separate menus for specific allergies and recommended meals. My server was very knowledgeable and friendly and seemed to take care to keep me well.
