    The servers are not knowledgable what so ever. If you have a true allergy, ask for the chef to come out. They have actual GF corn tortillas...however, because the staff has no clue they will serve you the corn ones made there (which contain wheat). Be careful!!

    This was the best Mexican food I think I've ever had outside of California. I ate an incredible beef brisket soft taco that was very flavorful but also very fresh. That being said, their seafood is what you should go their for. The fish comes in fresh daily and tastes amazing. Everything was amazing. The only catch is that the fajitas are really expensive on any day but Wednesday.

    Read this for the facts of the restaurant ;-) I give this place 5 stars for all the options that they have that are gluten free. The GF chips are horrible though. They do not have any GF beer or cider. They do have GF mixed drinks as most mixed drinks are GF.

    I am so glad that I tried this restaurant. Fantastic tasting food and a much larger than expected GF menu to choose from. I had the guacamole (fresh and very tasty) pork tacos (packed full with meat), and a side cheese enchilada (with chili topping). My server seemed knowledgeable about gluten free preparation and stated that the chefs were very careful to avoid cross contamination (without prompting). Overall a very pleasant visit. I will definitely visit this establishment again to try the other menu items that I was tempted by. :) Only negative - No chicken for GF customers (and I really like chicken enchiladas)... Sigh. Of Note - this should be listed as a "$$" dining experience for the GF menu pricing.

    Gluten-Free but Greasy This busy downtown location does have a separate GF menu, special handling in the kitchen and GF meals come marked with a little wooden stake. Know that their regular chips are NOT GF. They have baked chips that you have to ask for and they are different, not very delicious. There is variety on the menu. I had the enchilada meal with beans and rice, all of which were greasy and what I considered fast-food quality.

    They had a gf menu with a lot of options and the waiter seemed knowledgeable. However, they brought out enchiladas with flour tortillas. I confirmed with the different waitress who brought them out that they were gf, and she said she didn't think so. She brought them back and a manager came to talk to us and said our waiter hadn't entered the meal as gluten free. They brought a new dish that was absolutely delicious and didn't have us pay for my meal.

    I have celiac but do not show symptoms so cannot speak to that but they have a GF menu & kitchen manager Alonzo came out to discuss the safe prep practice. He made a recommendation for items that do not come in contact with gluten & their process for safely preparing items that do. I felt comfortable after reading recent reviews & speaking to the well informed manager.

    4 stars only because there is just one selection. The food was great. The only option is the soft taco platter with corn tortillas, shredded chicken or ground beef. Served with rice and beans. I had the shredded chicken. It was delicious and causes no reaction. The cashier was actually very knowledgeable. She seemed very young, so I was impressed that she knew about the risks of cross contamination and hidden ingredients. It's hard to find truely gluten free food at the airport, but this little counter service restaurant in Terminal E at IAH is wonderful.

(Not as great as fried chips, but the tableside guacamole is enough to carry the day.) The manager came out to talk about my meal and they seem to take things pretty seriously.

    I was nervous about going here because it seems it would be very easy for cross contamination to occur at a Mexican restaurant. The GF menu was small, as most are, but well rounded. I was worried I may not be able to have any chips but they had baked chips which were very good. I chose to avoid the Mexican rice even though it was considered GF because of the spices which sometimes doesn't sit well with me. The staff was very helpful and seemed knowledgeable. My belly feels great. A very pleasant experience and I can't wait to go again.

    Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with celiac. I'm sitting in the restaurant right now. Took my family out to dinner as I'm visiting from Nashville. Their carne asada & chicken is marinated in soy sauce and contaminates the entire grill. Also, they make flour tortillas inside the kitchen so wheat flour is airborne inside their entire kitchen. I opted not to chance getting sick so I did not order anything. My family's meals look and smell great though. It's very frustrating that restaurants are capitalizing by the "gluten free fad". Just because they have a gluten free menu does not mean it's gluten free. Wheat flour in the kitchen? Soy sauce on the grill? No thanks-not worth being on my back for over a week. Go at your own risk. Cheers.

    Amazed to find a great GF place like this in the airport! Super knowledgable about what I can order (even knew I couldn't have the tortilla chips bc they're fried in common oil). She even went and got the manager to confirm everything was GF and he assumed me it will be prepared on a dedicated area with clean utensils- I think the manager actually prepared it himself! Only one/ two GF options, but that's better than none. And the service was amazing.
