This place is good for Americanized Mexican food - the bar at this location is a comfy spot to hangout for drinks and appetizers and/or while waiting for a table - its a popular spot! The Margarita's are HUGE and the guacamole is really good.

I'm not sure about the gluten free options as I don't look for them when dining. They're menu is quite extensive so I'm sure you would find something that fit your needs.
