We went with this place after being unable to find a seafood place that would give a satisfactory answer about gluten free options. We got lunches to go (took them to Hunters Spring park). I got the chicken quesadilla lunch with cilantro rice, and our meal came with chips and salsa. The quesadilla was delicious and huge (2 meals). The chips, I was assured, are cooked in their own frier. The whole meal was very good, and I didn't get sick, which made it worth missing out on potentially contaminated seafood.

I literally did a happy dance when I found out they were so safe! When I started to explain my issue with gluten she asked "is it gluten sensitive or celiac?" Which is music to a Celiac's ears. I have eaten here 4 times in the last month and NEVER sick. They get just as excited to serve me as I am to be able to eat there. The food is absolutely incredible! Authentic and extremely flavorful. The tamales are true and safe. And the chorizo mmmm I can not say enough about this place.

Great atmosphere and service! I was going to get the chorizo and eggs, but the server double checked with the chef and although there was nothing on the chorizo package noting the gluten content, they looked it up on google to find out that there was gluten in it. I got a chicken rice bowl and it was delicious! Also, our server double checked with the chef to make sure there wasn’t any flour in the queso dip and there isn’t! They have churros and chimichangas, so I assume that the fryer is contaminated, so I didn’t eat any tortilla chips. Will be back!!

This restaurant GETS gf. Instead of chips and salsa I was offered grilled corn tortillas with salsa. A section of the grill is gf. There is an extensive gf menu. I had the gf quesadillas with carne asada. Delicious! The carne asada is marinated using gf Worcestershire sauce. Wonderful place!!!
