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.

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.

We had a great meal, my son is celiac and did not get sick. The chips are corn and cooked in their own fryer. Manager was very familiar with gluten. They closed kitchen and wiped it down. To prevent cross contamination.
