Excellent food 90% of the food is gluten free. I pigged out on 7 tacos and no celiac reaction (they are small street style tacos with a gourmet twist) It’s so hard to find truly gluten free great Mexican food - highly recommended BarTaco.

The food was delicious and the manager couldn’t be nicer when I explained that I have celiac. He not only told me that the menu is 90% GF but proceeded to quadruple check about a food I wanted to eat that he wasn’t sure about! I felt totally safe eating here and can’t wait to come back :)

All ordering done with an app on your phone where you can make any modifications you need. Another neat feature is that you can order at any point, so if you decide to get another taco mid-meal it'll come out right away.

The ability to order on the app and add your allergies is fantastic. The fact that everything is gluten-free, except for their desserts and kids’ meals are amazing!!

Awesome experience. I will keep on coming back.

Bartaco continues to be reliable! I’ve eaten at the chain in a handful of different states, and I’ve never had a problem. They make it easy to flag your order as a gluten allergy when you order online. Atlanta has 3 locations, and I would trust any of them. I love the taco packs for sharing! Just wish they would make crema and cotija available as add-ons. Also, just an FYI that have a full spreadsheet of allergens and cross contamination risks on their website, but you have to search for it!

Unusual experience in that you have no waitress but there is a wait team that brings your items to the table… which as a celiac makes me uncomfortable becuase I like to know I have one specific server that’s looking out for me. However, I was reasonably confident that the food was GF because the my said the entire menu was GF other than desserts and the “special” taco. They also have a clear selection when ordering for listing gluten allergy and notes. The food and cocktails were really good.

As someone with Celiac that lives in a rural area, I rarely get to go out to eat. My husband and I stopped in Bartaco on our last trip to Atlanta, and it was fantastic. I felt like the staff was very knowledgeable about gluten and the food was excellent. I sampled a variety of tacos and had a fabulous spicy margarita. Upon learning that it was our first visit, one of the hostesses even brought us complimentary duck tacos to sample. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

Everything on the menu except for dessert is gluten free. Everything is separate so the bill can get pricey. For example, the chips & salsa are not complimentary like a typical Mexican restaurant. The tacos are reasonably priced at $3/taco. I loved the duck taco!!!

Almost everything (minus some of the desserts) is gluten free. What has gluten is marked on the menu. Ordering takes place online and there is a spot on your order to mark if you have a gluten allergy. Everyone was super friendly and the atmosphere was great. I highly recommend the Baja fish tacos.

So much of the menu is gluten free that they mark the few items that are *not* safe! For reference, my partner is extremely sensitive to cross contamination so we have to be extra picky. We visited the Inman Park location.

On the downside, the bar was uncomfortably crowded for Covid with the tables right next to each other. While the staff are wearing masks, I didn't see a single patron with one, even before being seated. So even outside I was a little uncomfortable with the risk. The place was also super loud, but the music was good. They've gone completely paperless so you sit, scan the table's barcode, and then open their app. You place your order in the app, marking each item with allergens as needed (gluten, dairy, nuts, shellfish, etc) and even pay through the app at the end of the meal, so contact with staff is minimal (an introvert's dream! 🤣).

The guacamole wasn't very good at all. Way too much lime and salt, no tomato, and it seemed at least partially made with Florida avocados because it was super bland beyond just hot salty and sour. Not worth the money. But the TACOS...oh the tacos were a different story. They're small, so if you're used to eating three tacos, you'll want about five of these. And they are SO GOOD.

I had the chicken verde, which wasn't that spicy but had a great smoky grill flavor. The duck was my least favorite, as it was oily and a little bland, but tender. The ribeye was good. The crispy oysters were my absolute favorite, just lovely and tender. My partner liked the mushroom tacos best, followed by the oyster.

Overall we were very impressed and plan to make this place a regular visit whenever we're in Atlanta. While the tacos are small, the rice bowls look like they're a good sized meal, and might be better value for money if you're on a budget.

LOVE bartaco but celiacs beware:

-They cook the corn tortillas on the same surface as flour so I always opt for lettuce wraps -They claim the mojo pork is cooked with gluten free beer HOWEVER it’s omission beer which is currently *crafted to removed gluten* so not 100% gf -chips currently fried in safe fryer but double check-may vary on the day

I’ve eaten here several times and been fine and I’m extremely sensitive

I’ve been many times and I always love it. I’ve had many tacos and bowls that are safe. Remember to ask for corn tacos instead of chips with the guacamole. The fryer isn’t dedicated gf.

My server was very knowledgeable about what I could eat that was both GF and DF. I had many more options than I'm used to having. The manager stopped by to ensure I was having a good experience. Very impressed! I'll drive the 45 minutes to eat here again.

I went for the first time this week and found out the entire menu is gluten free except the kids menu and some deserts. They have dedicated GF fryers for the corn chips and other fried items. I have the Baja fish taco and the batter is made from rice flour. It is such a relief to know I won’t get sick here!

What a great experience! Really fun. Almost everything is gf - truly gf, as in safe for celiac. You use the app to order food and pay for it, so that’s super convenient once you’re up to speed. The service was great- lots of check ins to see if we needed anything. I told them celiac when I arrived and they confidently told me how they are free of gluten and cross contamination. I ordered tons of food and it was all great. I’m a wimp with spices, and the least spicy items were the half chicken, chips and guacamole, pork belly taco, & crispy oyster taco. Def going back!

I’ve eaten here a few times and haven’t had a reaction. While I know some people don’t like the ordering process, I do really like that I can specify “celiac / gluten allergy” for each item I order. I believe there are only a very few number of items on their menu that have gluten (all of the desserts unfortunately). Can’t wait to go back.
