My husband is celiac. We were told the chips were gluten free, but he got very sick after eating there. Don’t take the risk.

I got glutened but it was 100% my fault, not theirs. I saw the other reviews saying there were gluten free corn chips, so I assumed the table chips were gf because they look like white corn. They are white corn, but they are not gf...you have to special request gf chips. The white corn chips are dipped in flour before they are fried. I was going to check with the staff, but they were so busy I just said “oh they’re probably fine” and that was a huge mistake. However, they do have a good (though limited) gf menu and the staff seemed really knowledgeable. When I asked why the chips were not gf, the staff knew why. Not sure if the rest of the meal was safe since I glutened myself in the beginning, but it’s a nice restaurant!

My waiter went above and beyond to make my experience good! Corn tortillas are so yummy and they even have a gluten free sopaipilla!

The manager was extremely helpful and explained exactly what I could order that would be GF and DF. I ordered tamales (chicken and beef) and enchilada (chicken and ground beef) - each had either green sauce or the ranchero sauce. The pinto beans, refried beans and rice were safe as well. Their chips and salsa are amazing! The chips are thin and crispy and the salsa is the perfect consistency. Everything was delish and, since I ordered through Uber Eats, it was all delivered right to my hotel room. Such a treat, considering that I am from out of town and haven’t found a ton of reliable GF options in OKC. I will definitely order from here the next time I’m in town.

The gluten free menu is not trustworthy. I’m not going back—I gave more chances than I should have. I ordered tamales with no sauce, rice, and gluten free chips. Also cheese sauce and relish. All of the things I had are on their gluten menu, but I obviously ate plenty of gluten there last night based on my today.
