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.

Their “gluten free” chips ARE NOT celiac safe. They are fried with everything else. Yellow corn tortillas are safe but NOT the white corn so be sure to specify. Decent selection and as long as I avoid the chips and make sure all tortillas are yellow corn, I don’t have any issues.

After telling the waitress 3 times from arrival to order that I was GF, I received the white corn tortillas from the “not safe” list of their allergy menu. After speaking with the manager and getting the GF corn tortillas, my meal came out - with my cheese enchilada made from the same white corn tortilla I mentioned above. The reason I didn’t give it one star is that they at least have GF menu and the manager was concerned after the fact.

The food is amazing, but you have to make sure that they do not fry their corn chips either the flour ones. I only know of a few locations that do this, so i would call ahead. I would definitely recommend as long as you go to a location with a separate fryer.

This place was great for our daughter! Separate menu for gluten free, they even brought out a basket of chips for her. We know for sure they were gf just by the difference in our basket and hers. She had a great meal and our waiter really understood her need for gf. We left with her belly full and she had no issues. Great place for the whole family to eat.

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!
