    Very ignorant and defensive server. Had to talk to a manager to find out that there were shared fryers and that there were mistakes on the menu --items that were listed as gluten free were prepared in the shared fryer. Left without ordering.

    This place is a new favorite of mine. GF options are clearly marked on the menu, and there are lots and lots of great selections to choose from. It's so nice not to be limited to just 2 or 3 choices. They have a dedicated fryer and the bartender seemed to understand about cross contamination. The food was fresh and flavorful. I highly recommend this place.

    I eat here about once a month; the food is good and the menu is well marked to identify what's not gluten free.

    I found that the menu, while supposed to be easy to identify GF, had a few hidden items, especially on the lunch menu. The manager was very helpful, though, and I've never been sick in all of the half dozen times I've been there. I really enjoyed the food.

    My family attempted to eat here last weekend. My daughter & I both have Celiac Disease. Upon arrival, the appetizer plates on the table were dirty and there was food all over the menus. We tried to confirm the dedicated fryer status, but our waitress had no idea what we were talking about. A minutes later, after explaining that we couldn't eat the chips if they hadn't come from a dedicated fryer, she was suddenly sure that they had. I gave them 2 stars because the gluten-containing dishes are clearly marked on the menu, so they're trying. Their waitstaff clearly need to be trained on the subject, though. We weren't convinced that we could eat there safely, so we left.

    The corn tortillas are made in a dedicated fryer. So I gave them credit for GF bread/buns above. They don't have a GF menu per se but mark gluten containing items with an asterisk. The manager was very helpful with ingredient allergen questions. We have a 3 year old with multiple food issues. He even brought items out from the kitchen so I could read the ingredients. Service was a little slow and a couple drinks were forgotten but everyone was helpful. We were a group of 10 with 4 GF including the food allergy nightmare 3 year old. We will definitely be back.
