best customer service. the manager came out on his own to ask me about my restrictions and what they can do to accommodate me. they are knowledgeable and have a separate gluten free menu, and the food is delicious. I had no reactions and would definitely return!

We had lunch here today and they were fantastic! We requested a gluten free menu and the manager came out to confirm with us if we had a gluten free preference or gluten allergy or Celiac so that they could take all the necessary precautions to avoid cross contamination in the kitchen.

They brought us out baked chips and took a little longer to bring us out Guacamole because they were ensuring it was freshly prepared in a dedicated area.

We definitely recommend!

Stopped at Pappasitas to avoid traffic after visiting a relative at the hospital, and toast to my birthday. Sat at the bar and had my favorite margarita wave with sangria. Asked for the gluten free menu, which they readily provided, and the manager came out to discuss the options with me. As a Celiac, I also have other intolerances to high lactose food and most salicylates (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and peppers). Knowing the difficulty of preparing my food, I carry a business card I customized on Zazzle.com, which details not only what I CAN'T have but also what I CAN have. This really helps the restaurant and their willingness to help me. I ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp and sautéed vegetables. They were very helpful and accomodating! Greatly appreciate their willingness to serve me. They assured me they would clean the grill before preparing my meal. Service was attentative and follow up diligent to ensure my satisfaction.

It was a delight! First time I have tried a Mexican restaurant since diagnosed over a year ago. No hesitation in pulling the gluten-free menu - it was right up front with all the other menus. Manager came out to assure me. Waitress was wonderful!! No repercussions at all! So pleased!!

So good and I did not get sick! They brought out baked tortilla chips for us. Probably the best fajitas I’ve ever had - the chicken was juicy and not dried out and over seasoned like many places. The sauce was amazing. 10 stars - highly recommend!

Ordered the chicken fajitas. The waitress told me the rice wasn’t GF so I asked why it says it is on the GF menu. She went to the manager to ask and he came to our table and told me it was, that anything on the GF menu was definitely GF. He also told me they take allergies very seriously. I was offered GF chips, the ones they bring to the table are not. My food was delicious and I did not get the least bit sick.

I got curbside pickup and had to call in my order. The young lady taking my order was very nice and knowledgeable about what was gluten free. The food tasted great! I did not get sick at all.

Separate menu, kitchen manager always comes to check on my order/answer questions, food comes out with gf pick/flag. Never been sick.

A side note- the queso is not listed bc it couldn’t be confirmed all the way down the line, but I always get it and I’m crazy sensitive. Also the gf chips are not very good, you might bring your own if you want the salsa/queso, but everything else is delicious!

Very good food. A supervisor even came out to double check my order. Even had a pick that said " Prepared Gluten Free" stuck in my chicken. Will definitely be back!

Gluten free chips and enchiladas. Table side guacamole. Not a gf kitchen but a separate area.

I had the shrimp tacos off the GF menu and they were delicious! I would definitely order them again. My server got me the baked corn tortilla chips, but unfortunately they were terrible - like, completely stale and almost inedible. Hopefully it was just a bad batch and doesn't represent their norm. I asked for a separate salsa to dip them in to avoid cross contamination from my table mates and was accommodated. Service was quite slow on a Tuesday night, but everyone was friendly and we did have a large party.

They have a GF menu-it’s very limited. They offer baked tortilla chips, they are very dry. The queso tastes medium at best. The chicken taco I ordered on a corn tortilla tasted fishy. 3 starts because I haven’t gotten sick eating there- but there are better options around which are not overpriced like this place is.

This was an okay place to eat. Of course the main thing is to not get sick. It was fairly okay food but the good thing was she knew exactly what we could get and what would be cross contaminated.

Cashier was very helpful. Even the corn tortillas are cross contaminated (crispy ones are fried in a shared fryer, soft ones are warmed in the same warmer as the flour tortillas.) Safest bet was a burrito in a bowl. I had the Del Rio, it was very good, had a little kick to it though!
