    The waitress was pretty clueless about gluten free things, but after we prompted her a couple times, she went back to check on the chips. They’re fried in a shared frier, so they weren’t safe to eat. They had a small selection of gluten free things marked on the menu, and had to coach the waitress on what I needed. I ordered 2 pulled pork enchiladas, and they let me substitute a 3rd enchilada (veggie) instead of any sides- of the sides, only beans were safe, which I’m not a hinge fan of. The pulled pork enchiladas were decent, but the veggie was my favorite hands down. Overall, fun atmosphere for a group dinner. Our waitress was not knowledgeable about GF, but was receptive to the things I requested and she went back to have several chats with the kitchen when I was asking her things.

    Things are marked GF on the menu, but they also have foods that would be safe but are not marked, so ask questions. I had fish tacos in corn tortillas and a killer prickly pear margarita. No dedicated fryer so take your chances on the tortilla chips based on your sensitivity. The outdoor patio area was really nice!

    DONT EAT HERE this place has gluten free markings on the menu but I just ate here and the waitress did not know what gluten was, she also came back with my plate, pointed at the rice and said "we aren't sure if the rice is gluten free or not you have to tell me whether you can eat it or not" I told her I can not eat gluten (again) and she again stated that they don't know because they don't know what I can't eat. Even if you don't have celiac like I have, if you have any sensitivities to gluten do not eat here!!!!!!

    Very accommodating. Had the cheese enchiladas with no problems! Just let them know the severity of your allergy.

    Gf marked in the menu. Delicious tex mex and one of the best margaritas I have had. Chips are fried in a non dedicated fryer, so I bring my own. AMAZING patio with an huge oak tree as the centerpiece.
