Visited here on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. They were busy and either were ignorant of gluten free needs or just didn't want to bother answering my questions. I did manage to get an order in which was just okay and rather pricey.

One of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever eaten at. The food was excellent, I thought it was very Mexican authentic. Good cold beer and my wife had a great Mango Margarita. Excellent service and pretty good prices. Clean restrooms,
