    We just visited this place while on a trip from Dallas, TX. If you want Mexican food, this isn't for you. Authentic is not a word I'd use for it at all. I'm convinced the reviews on here are from employees rather than customers. The tacos were too soggy to pick up and the grilled chicken was so soaked in lime it made me pucker. Even if they didn't try to pass it off as Mexican food it'd be sub-par. The only positive note is the waitress was a sweetheart. They did NOT have a gluten free menu, they just made orders by request. I was suspicious of how crunchy my chicken was so I didn't finish it. When I asked the waitress if it was gluten free she gave me a deer in the headlight look at hesitated before saying yes.

    Has the most delicious sauces and flavors. The chef has exquisite taste for balancing acidity, richness, sweetness, and savor. Truly, every time I have eaten here, I have been delighted. They truly understand gluten free also! They will make the quesadillas for you with corn tortillas.

    So good! IGNORE THE BAD REVIEWS. They have so many options. Best shrimp quesadillas I've ever had! They won awards for their gluten free friendliness. Amazing place. Sit on the patio for a gorgeous view.

    Absolutely beautiful rooftop patio and a plentiful gluten-free options! The waiter was very helpful in helping me select a meal. The best part of this experience was the food! So delicious. This place is a must!

    I went in expecting Mexican food. This is definitely not Mexican food (at least not what I’m used to in Texas). I believe it’s Latin food??? What I had was good though. The queso is more like fondue- melted cheese, not the creamy stuff you dip your chip in. Again it was good, just not what I’m used to. The taquitos were a quesadilla on corn tortillas. I enjoyed my meal very much, it just wasn’t what I expected. There also were not as many choices as I anticipated going in according to the reviews. The chicken has gluten in it. Very knowledgeable waiter. Great service.

    Food was very good. Our server seemed very knowledgeable about GF. If she was not sure about something, she went ahead and found out for us. Our son is asymptomatic celiac so we can’t be 100% sure how they do with cross contamination though...

    I was not at all impressed with the food, the service, or the atmosphere. My husband (not GF) & I stopped in for an early dinner on a weeknight, and I ordered Pescado de Mesias (Grilled Tilapia). The tilapia fillets were more fried than grilled, but otherwise unseasoned, and the white rice and black beans were bland. Salsa with corn & black beans was the best part of the meal although it tasted better eaten with a spoon than on the gluten free chips! The waiter said the chicken had a bread coating; the only other protein choice was pulled pork.

    We ate here twice over our weekend trip to Hot Springs. They can make pretty much anything on the menu gluten free, but if you're really strict and worried about cross contamination, it's better to stay away from the chicken, which leaves you with around 3 options. I had the pork Cuban plate, which was much, much better than I expected (it wasn't just big blobs of pork, rice, and beans). It was plated beautifully, and it came with guacamole, sour cream, a little cheese and some fresh marinated veggies for a little brightness, and was not at all heavy or greasy. I went back and took friends the next day.

    Cannot understand perfect ratings that sent us here...overpriced, really greasy, etc. Not exactly worth an $80 family dinner! I'd take a drive out of town for something better!

    Excellent food and very celiac friendly 😄 Chips and salsa are GF and nearly every dish can be made gluten free. I ordered the enchiladas and they were the BEST I've ever had! Big dishes and VERY good!

    The staff is very knowledgeable about Gluten free menu options. The restaurant was named Best Gluten Free Restaurant in Hot Springs by Arkansas Times. Excellent Latin American food.
