Some solid options, fun atmosphere, good price value if not much variety. We come here pretty often. It’s a single shared fryer per location with things like onion rings so even though there’s a claim (and the employees will say) there are a lot of options, I’ve only found 3 different types of dishes: 1- enchiladas with tasty red sauce, 2- tacos (combos under Wing’s Faves), and 3- a loaded corn-tortilla quesadilla (First Wave app) made in a pan with foil. Kids’ items follow same pattern. No gf desserts.

For protein options avoid spicy Cajun fish, Cajun chicken, and fried flounder/fish.

Only white rice, cauliflower rice, the black beans and delish citrus slaw are gf - for sides.

Veg options banzai veg, tofu, spicy mushrooms show as gf on their allergen guide, also as vegan.

Chicken tortilla soup, wahoo’s/chicken salads could work but remember even chips come from shared fryer, but they can be careful to not include “tortilla strips” if specified.

Wine in cans! Stem cider! Something called curation cocktail cans, double check if they’re gf. Agave Marg looks simplest - tequila agave lime, not sure if margs use sketchy mixes.

Not marked on the menu but they seem knowledgeable at both locations I’ve tried. I love the tacos here. My favorites are Al Pastor and Fuego Carnitas. Our absolute favorite tacos

If you ask the servers you can figure your way around the menu. I got the citrus slaw fish tacos with rice and beans and it worked great for me, a Celiac.

Lots of GF options. Food taste won’t blow you away but it’s decent (somewhere between taco shop and Islands). Staff could be better educated on what gluten is.
