I'm sorry, I only ate supper there. I shared the beef fajitas with my wife and they were excellent. However, I'm pretty sure there was nothing low in sodium or potassium in our meal. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

If you select something that uses corn tortillas instead of flour, there should be quite a few options for you. They may not be labeled as gluten free but you should be able to have several decent options.
