    This is my new favorite Mexican restaurant! they have their gluten free options clearly marked (and the fajitas are as along as you specify and order corn tortillas... which are made FRESH by the way!) And we can eat the nachos too! The stuffed avocado is my favorite though. I loved this place so much I went twice in one week and I usually won't go the same place within the same month. Did I mention they have gluten free dessert? If you go, ask for Ericka to be your waitress, she's one of the best waitresses I've ever had -and I'm not easy to impress!

    Dedicated gfree fryer and super conscious of cross contamination. Great food too! The waiter I had was very knowledgeable of gfree needs. Based on previous reviews that seemed to not be the case 3 years ago, so lots of improvements made. I JD the stuffed avocado and ate lots of chips and bean dip and feel great!

    WARNING: I decided to give it another try tonight. I spoke to the manager who informed me that the rice is not gf, the chips are fried in same oil as empanadas so they're not gf. Even though there is a gf symbol next to the menu item does not mean it is gluten free! I ordered the chicken enchiladas with verde sauce. Sour cream sauce is not gf! I was told 3 previous visits that it is. Eat here at your own risk and be sure to ask about each and every part of every meal bc they do not look out for you. Every waiter I've had said that the meals are gf if theres a feather next to the item on the menu. They're not trained or informed at all. The most disappointing aspect of this is that it took 4 visits to get it straight! I'm not going to return, they are too irresponsible. Previous review: I thought the food tasted great and was presented very nicely. The waiter was nice but I don't think he was well informed regarding gf menu items. His answers to my questions were very vague. I don't think he felt like checking on the specifics. I don't believe my meal was gluten free because today I am very ill. I won't return unless a manager is willing to spend some time explaining their menu and procedures in detail. What's the point of offering gluten free if staff is not well informed? It seems to be a common problem in this area.

    With all the hype of this place, my husband and I were disappointed. The GF items look great on the menu, but we and the couple next to us thought the food was bland. We also had poor service. Great restaurant concept, but did not impress.

    Wonderful new restaurant in downtown Plano. Regular menu clearly marks if each item is gf. Lots of choices. Good Tex-Mex food displayed beautifully and reasonably priced. Fun atmosphere!
