    We went here because of all the positive reviews but were incredibly disappointed. My dad, who is a celiac, got sick, the menu was very limited and when I asked for a gluten free margarita they told me they don't offer one because their mixes can't be verified gluten free. It was incredibly disappointing and I DO NOT recommend this place to anyone who is really celiac.

    Dedicated GF menu and they can customize most of their dishes to be GF. They'll even bring you GF chips/salsa. I've heard 2 different stories that either the husband of the owner has celiac, or the owners daughter has celiac so they try and cater to celiacs. They can also make a scratch margarita that is GF and quite good!

    Our family goes to this restaurant all of the time! One of the owners has Celiac so they are great at being careful. They have gluten free tortilla chips which they bring separately in a different type of bowl so that bussers know that bowl is for GF chips. (They also bring a separate salsa with it so no one else is dipping regular chips in the salsa). They also have gluten free tortillas and many other dishes. My son usually just gets chips, guacamole, tortillas, and refried beans so we haven't tested other dishes with his Celiac. He always feels fine after eating here though which is why we go so often!

    The server was honest and said they do not have a separate prep area and they use all same cooking tools for GF menu. My celiac daughter insisted on taking the risk and she did fine. I don't plan to go back due to the shared kitchen prep.

    Terrible experience. We ordered for our daughter who has Celiac disease a gluten free cheese quesadilla and they brought out a flour tortilla for her. She ate a portion of it before we stopped her to ask the staff if the tortilla was corn or flour. First time our daughter encountered gluten in two years- threw up all night.
