    2018- I recently wen back again, same great service. The manager assured me the fryer for chips was dedicated, even tested GF with my Nima. Our server was very helpful and willing to ask the kitchen questions. I got the Carnitas over rice, tested GF also. Great margaritas. 2017-Dedicated fryer, corn tortillas, 100% agave tequila (and wonderful margaritas!). Our server was GF aware & knowledge. Definitely going back soon!

    Read mostly good celiac reviews, went and asked for GF menu. Manager said they didn’t have one and proceeded to ask if I had celiac disease. He stated that although they have many GF menu items, he wouldn’t recommend dining here as there are no precautions back in the kitchen. We chose to play it safe and eat elsewhere. 2 stars for the warning!

    NOT celiac friendly. I had a reaction shortly after eating here. The experience itself was nice, our waitress was very sweet & the chef personally came out & talked to me about my options since I have celiac disease, (however they do not have a gluten free menu). But they were very accommodating. Unfortunately, the only option I had that would be “100% gluten free” was a bowl. The bowl wasn’t very good & my family wasn’t a fan of their meals either. And afterwards, I had a reaction while on my way home from vacation, (not a fun ride home). Would not recommend this place for those with celiac. I gave it 2 stars because they did try very hard to fit my needs, I wish all restaurants tried this hard to accommodate those with severe gluten allergies.

    awesomeness!! GF chips, Queso is incredible, corn tortillas, craft margaritas, cool atmosphere, decent prices... asked the host for a server that's versed in their gluten free items, the host said all the servers on tonight were well versed. after we told our server about our gluten allergy she piped up and told us about the dedicated fryer for chips!! if theres anyone that knows about the importance of a dedicated fryer at a restaurant I know I'm in good hands

    Chips are made in a dedicated frier and they are delicious. The home made salsa is also great. Ate tacos here and did not get sick.

    I've had good experiences here. Dedicated chip fryer. The enchiladas are delicious, and they're cooked in their own dish rather than a shared flat top. The staff is knowledgeable. Once, the manager had the kitchen prepare my meat topping on a grill that was not used for gluten-containing ingredients (after he swiped up my contaminated plate before I took a bite), and they've always been willing to do it since. Food can be on the heavy side, but it's generally very good.

    Excellent GF food and friendly knowledgeable staff! The chef, based out of Chicago, even came to the table to chat and informed us that he too doesn't eat regular flour. This was definitely a gourmet Mexican meal worth every calorie and penny!

    None of this is true. I'm from out of town and went there specifically because of their claims. I was quite disappointed. The Margarita was darn good though. 😕
