Allergen Information

Please inform us if you have an allergy.


We are not a gluten-free restaurant, but many of our menu items are made without gluten. We cannot guarantee anything to be 100% free of gluten because we have products in the kitchen that do have gluten.


Our corn tortillas and our chips are corn. Our fish is breaded in cornmeal. However, concerning the chips, fish and anything else fried, it’s always important to check with your server to make sure the fryer is wheat-free that day, just in case of any specials that may be made with gluten and fried.

These are things that do contain gluten.
