Loved the margaritas, the lovely creamy queso dip and salsa. Ordered a wonderful soup, and shared some rellenos with my friend. The service was excellent. I highly recommend this cafe! I liked it so much that I went back the next evening.

Hi jaascar16, I personally did not have a gluten-free meal (at least that I'm aware of), but they promote the fact that they offer gluten-free options! You can find a link to their menu on their website. Hope this helps! :)
