I don't like how they do not have a dedicated fryer for the tortilla chips

I would rate this "On The Board" as a zero! They do have a gluten free menu. I talked to the waiter and then ordered off the gluten free menu. I ordered steak fajitas. They brought me a flour tortilla in stead of corn tortillas. When I took a bite of it I realized it was not a corn tortilla. Needless to say I removed it from my mouth. Come to find out the whole meal was cross contaminated. I would not recommend the place to anyone.

I did not end up eating here because the person I spoke with when I called said that most of their meat is either cooked or reheated on the same flat top that is used to make their quesadillas and he had at some point seen people cook gluten in their dedicated gf fryers. He said they could definitely accommodate if I let them know it was severe, but it didn’t seem like a place I would trust not to contaminate.

Had fajitas. They were very good and the had a dedicated menu for celiac. Wait staff was knowledgeable. We brought our own chips for the salsa, which is pretty standard everywhere these days as the frier is shared.

I ate the chips with no reaction and they had many options on the gluten-free menu but I did see that they had a combo on the normal menu. I got the pick 2 flautas with double rice. The chicken tortilla soup is also good without the tortillas.
