Not your typical greasy Mexican food…. it is sooo much better than that! It is fresh and full of flavor. Pretty much everything here is gluten free. Most desserts and kids quesadillas are not gluten free, but everything else on the menu is. Dedicated fryer and amazing food! You can indicate allergies when ordering which is good too. We have become regulars while vacationing in Florida and Colorado.

Loved this place. When you order on the app at the restaurant, you can indicate gluten allergy. Actually got to enjoy breaded fish taco (breading made of rice flour) as well as other tacos. Tacos are made with corn tortillas. Guacamole was very good. Everything fresh. 99% of the menu is gluten free (the 1% includes the desserts). The staff is VERY friendly!

My fav...Pork belly bowl!
GF lemonade and pomegranate juice
GF chips and salsa
GF appetizers
Actually mark what's not gf rather than what is since they have so much. Corn Fritters, AMAZING! Service great. Tacos look small but are filling.  Definitely will return.

I've eaten here many times successfully; both dine in and takeout. Never had a problem with tacos or bowls. I tried something new yesterday; the roasted half chicken and a mushroom bowl. Plus some guacamole and chips that I've had before. It was takeout. I was definitely glutened.

I ate at Bar Taco before in Nashville and was assured that everything was gluten free except for the deserts, drinks and optional flour tortillas. I had no issues. I arrived to Orlando location and the host told me that absolutely everything was gluten free that I could order without any problems. I thought it was weird because both the other location and the online menu said that some items have gluten and some items share a fryer. I didn’t have my tester with me so I just thought I’ll follow the online allergen menu (it shows things that are prepared in the shared fryer or not). When my Baja fish taco arrived I wanted to confirm again, so I asked this server if it was fried in the shared fryer and she said “no, everything is gluten free here” I nicely said again “I just want to make sure cause I can’t eat gluten” then she asked if I was celiac and I suddenly the conversation changed she said “I need to check cause we sometimes use beer batter on those, I think the recipe changed” at this point I’m almost giving up because why would they advertise their place as gluten free and have beer batter in the gluten free food? Also why keep denying that was any gluten in the items? When all desserts contain wheat flour, plus some kids items. I ate and the food was delicious but I would not go again without a tester. Only reason I accepted to eat was because they promised that was no gluten on what I had and the allergy menu said no gluten or shared equipment for these items. But I’m still scared (it has only been three hours).

Absolutely incredible! Almost everything is gluten free, items that aren't are clearly marked on the menu. Since the pandemic they switched to mobile ordering from your table so the online menu is a little more difficult to navigate for gf (you have to click on the actual items to see the allergens and ingredients). I am celiac and have been going here for years and have never gotten sick. Some menu items change seasonally.

My absolute favorites are the Tuna Tatako, Baja Fish Taco, and the plantains. They also have delicious cocktails. Management has always been incredibly helpful if there is ever any kind of issue. They have some takeout taco pack options that are a really good value.

We went there and specifically asked about gluten free items. The man who sat us said everything on the menus was gluten free accept for deserts. Unfortunately we took his word and now my son is vomiting. He had the quesadillas which is made with a flour tortilla. The menu says it contains dairy. Nothing about wheat or gluten. You have to click further on the items and open up more windows to find That the menu it does state this. We should have paid more attention instead of taking worthless information from Someone.

Please be careful out there.

Of the 4 times my Celiac daughters and I have eaten here, they messed up once and badly glutened my daughter with the supposed gluten free Baja Fish Tacos.

While the food tasted good on our many visits, they screwed up and glutened my Celiac daughter on our last (and final) visit.

This place is amazing! The food is delicious and it has a lovely atmosphere. I really would give it a 5 star on any other site. But, this is a review on a Gluten free site and to be honest there was a possibility of a mishap, if we were not as persistent as we were, about the food brought to the table. My daughter is the one with Celiac and she also has an egg allergy. They had multiple choices for her which was fantastic. We never go out to eat because of cross-contamination, but I felt safe trying this place because they really only had three items on the menu that could possibly contaminate her food. The waitress was amazing and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, since it was our first time there we didn't realize it was family style ordering. When the food was brought out by someone other than our server we had to ask her multiple times which was the Celiac egg free dishes. She was nonchalant about it which bothered me. So, we gave my daughter the food the server handed to us for her. I went with my gut and told my daughter to wait a minute and we would find out for sure from our waitress if it was safe. The waitress pulled it up quickly and the manager came out with our daughter's food. Nobody had mentioned that the manager would deliver her food. As with any other restaurant you have to really watch out. But like I said earlier this is a gluten-free site and I'm writing it as a gluten-free review. We will definitely go back again sometime, but having that extra bit of knowledge really does help.

Not helpful with gluten free options. Disappointing taco’s, very small with little filling. The side of brown rice was clumpy. Sat at the bar and the Bar tender was on his phone more than serving the customers. Gave it three stars for the atmosphere. Not worth the trip.

So many gluten free options that they actually mark what is NOT gluten free on the menu (only 5 items 4 are desserts). Shared 3 appetizers plantains in a dedicated fryer, pork tamale, and blistered shishitos for tacos we shared Baja fish in a dedicated fryer, falafel, pork belly, rock shrimp, and Portobello mushroom. We also shared grillled street corn, and didn't have room for our ahi tuna rice bowl so we took that home. They have 1 dessert option spiced chocolate pudding. I have not 1 complaint. Everything was delicious, the staff was friendly and very knowledgeable to cross contamination. Will be eating here again in the near future

Amazing! I have Celiac and am rarely able to eat out. I had no issues eating here. Great atmosphere, not too busy,l. I was told that everything on the menu is gluten free except for one soup and some desserts. All the tacos, sauces, chips and fryers are gluten free. Their tacos are a smaller, tapas style size where you order by the taco. All the flavors I tried were awesome and best of all, I felt great afterwards, never got sick! I will definitely be back when I come back in town.

The food was delicious and majority of menu naturally gluten free! Tacos are smaller scale and made with corn tortillas. I’ve been many times and always great. Dedicated fryer...make sure you inform them of allergies. They put a butter spray on chips....make sure you let them know if you cannot tolerate and they will eliminate that step.

We happened to walk by and decided to check out the menu. Turns out, they only mark the items that are NOT gluten free with an asterisk. I was told by 3 of the workers that 90% of the menu is naturally gluten free and that they will note it on the order as well. Because we had already eaten dinner, we didn't get a chance to try the tacos but I did order the Spiced Chocolate Pudding w/Hazelnut topping for desert and it was amaaaaaaazing. So far so good, excited to come back and try the rest of the menu! Oh and also, there drink menu looks awesome! 🍸😉

I ate here this week on 6/13/22. The people here knew about celiac and seemed to take measures to prevent cross contamination after I explained that I have celiac. Also, a lot of the menu was gluten free. I had a rice bowl, and did not have a problem with cross contamination. It was also pretty good!

Ordered the kids chicken taco and a fruit skewer for my 6yo son with Celiac. I called the day before and they told me that typically the child’s tacos come with a flour tortilla, so I made sure when we called to order I mentioned it was for a child with Celiac and specifically asked for a corn tortilla. They clearly marked this on the ticket (we saw it taped to the bag at pickup). When my husband picked up the food, they said that they only have corn tortillas that are gluten free. Only thing on the menu with gluten are the churros. Reasonably priced and delicious! Our son is somewhat picky and after the first two bites said the taco was delicious! We’ll be back!
