This could be a great place if the would get the gluten out of their sauces. The chips are prepared in a dedicated fryer. I really like their salsa and the bean and cheese dip. They have a gf menu. The problem is every time I order from the gf menu my food comes out different, I never know what I am really going to get. This tells me that the kitchen staff isn’t trained. The menu says you can order gf enchiladas, but with out the sauce and the tortillas. What do you get then?

Dedicated fryer for the chips!! Yay!! I ordered a taco and enchiladas. The taco was good, the enchiladas were eh. They were absolutely packed with meat!! The ground beef is NOT GF! The gf menu is out of date, and the waitress had to keep coming back to ask me what I wanted instead. The staff and manager were good at finding answers and did a great job with making sure that my food was handled safely. I wasn't super impressed with the taste of anything, buti was very thankful for the safe meal!

Staff completely unsure of allergens. For a couple things they showed us the ingredient lists, but pointed out items that clued us in to the fact they had no idea what to look for or warn us about.

I loved the food here! Chips were Gf according to the waiter and they seemed to know if things were or weren’t GF. There were several corn and rice based options!

They have naturally gluten free options on their allergy menu. Unfortunately, the local haciendas do not use a dedicated fryer for their chips so I have to bring my own. Am able to get a black bean with corn shell taco, rice and beans which makes for an alright meal when out with friends.

After the meal we had I’m honestly surprised anyone eats here. The chips are fine but the “salsa” is not salsa it’s a tomato sauce that has a weird flavor. I ordered a combo of a taco and enchilada. First they brought out the wrong combo. Then they brought the right combo but it was covered in onions which I specifically asked for no onions and the lettuce on the taco was brown and dry. They finally brought out a taco without onions.

The flavors on everything was just off. The rice is extremely strong seasoning it was only eatable with the extremely bland refried beans. The person I was with had a chimichanga but it was very bland.

The only reason I can think that this place is still around is because there’s nowhere else to eat. Very disappointed.

They have a dedicated fryer for the chips so you can have chips and salsa. Several of your normal options for gluten free Mexican food and it was good. Neither my daughter or I had a reaction. We would eat here again.

I ate here several times this week and was good. The fajitas with soft corn tortillas tasted great. Also had the chicken enchiladas with chipotle apricot sauce and that was a great sauce. The tortilla chips and salsa are safe. Will go back next time I'm in town.

When I asked if the chips were made in a dedicated fryer, our waitress knew right away what I was asking. She brought me a GF menu and gave her suggestions. Food was good and her service was fantastic.

Not to mention, the margaritas were large, strong, and still cheap.

Gluten free menu. Staff not as knowledgeable as they could be. Edited after second trip: ordered a tostada that was supposed to be GF and on a corn tortilla. It came with a fried flour tortilla. Won’t eat here again.

No one really knew exactly what was and what wasn't gluten free and even though their gluten free menu included the fajita salad, it came with croutons in it for some reason. Thankfully I was only three bites in when I found the first one. They do make their corn tortilla chips in a dedicated chip fryer so I was able to eat an appetizer.

if you really like Mexican food,I wouldn't go here. salsa seems to be a can of tomato paste with a splash of hot sauce. Table was dirty.. fork bent.. Shrimp taco tasty but... $5.29?? really?? server was friendly and clueless about allergies.

I am very sensitive to gluten. This place was very knowledgeable on what you could and couldn't eat. Chips fried separately and GF along with salsa. Had chicken fajitas without the wrap and was very good. Did not get sick and no issues.

They probably wouldn't say they're gluten-free friendly. I really like their corn tortillas, so I'd like to get tacos or fajitas. Before you eat the chips, ask if it was Fried in a dedicate fryer

Beware of cross-contamination, probably not recommended for someone with celiac. I recommend tacos or fajitas with corn tortillas.

Had an enchilada with pork filling. It was good and was inexpensive- $5.29 with no sides. The free chips and salsa were tasty. Salsa is more like a tomato sauce - ask for the chunky.

I will never eat here again. My daughter has celiac disease and she ordered a salad off their gluten free menu. Her salad was served with croutons. When the waitress returned with her new meal she said the kitchen staff didn't know what gluten was! I asked to speak to the manager and she told me their staff didn't know what gluten free meant and it would be too hard and expensive to educate the staff about it. I asked her why they even had a gluten free menu if their staff was unable to prepare gluten free food!

They had better food when I was a kid. I didn't feel comfortable eating GF here. Waitress had no idea what gluten was and they made some things in the same fryer as gluten foods...
