    The food was great and the patio was cute but the service was AWFUL! It took them over 25 minutes to just take our drink orders and we went on a Monday at 4pm.....

    Followed Gretchen's recommendation with two celiacs. Neither got sick and loved their meals. Takes longer to make safe so give yourself time. Shrimp Diablo rocked.

    PadreRitaGrill has an amazing GF menu. Unfortunately, if the owner isn't there to oversee the meal, I would not eat here. I love the fact that they have a dedicated fryer. Due to the high turn over of staff, they doesn't always know what GF is. I have been contaminated here twice. Because of this, if you are super sensitive, I would not suggest eating here. Otherwise, They do have some amazing food. The Diablo Shrimp and the Burger were my favorite!

    The owner was very passionate about making sure everything was done correctly. She cleans all the fryers and cooking space & cooks the GF orders herself just to make sure there is no cross contamination. There is a dedicated GF menu with sooo many options! Even fried foods.

    The owner herself took special care to make sure everything was prepared safely. I understand she has family that is celiac so she understands. The fried shrimp was amazing!!! I had it with fries and slaw. My daughter and granddaughter both are celiac and they got the chicken strips and fries.

    Decent chicken tenders and fries from dedicated fryer. Nice to be able to order that at a restaurant, but not amazing taste wise.

    They have a dedicated GF fryer Sonny daughter was able to have French fries! She could have had chicken tenders but opted for the GF pasta instead! 3 of the 7 in our party have celiac and we all had amazing food!!

    Visited this place because of the reviews here. When we asked the server which items are GF he said everything but the obvious. We ordered the side salad and the server didn't know which dressings were GF. The salads came out with a ton of croutons. The server said he will take them back and have the croutons removed. WRONG ANSWER! Explained to him about cross contamination. Ordered grilled shrimp and brought out fried shrimp. Ugh! Steak was ordered medium and came out well done . Got glutenized by cross contamination. We told the server over and over again that the kitchen needs to make sure about GF. The atmosphere was underwhelming to say the least.
