This is a go to for me. I agree with another poster though, I don’t feel safe when it is super busy. But I feel that way almost anywhere. AND last year they had a dessert on their menu marked GF BUT it came with a topping that had gluten in it!! So glad I asked to be sure. I do feel like if I make sure to inform my server, write “celiac” on my card and don’t go when it’s too busy it’s fine.
Unlike most Bartaco franchises, this one doesn’t have a dedicated GF fryer. Their fried plantains are my favorite item on the menu, so that was disappointing. However, most of the non-fried menu items are GF and delicious. I had tacos and asian slaw, all really good.
This place is heaven on earth! Everything I have ever had is amazing. I’ve had their pork belly and shrimp tacos, both to die for. The rotisserie chicken is so moist and juicy and their guacamole is some of the best I have ever had. The best part is almost everything on the menu is gluten free!
Almost everything on the menu is gluten free. In fact they mark the few items that are not with a star. The mangers take care of every order that is for anyone who is celiac or sensitive. I'm a celiac and have not felt this safe for a long time.
I have eaten here several times! Food is very good. The problem is if you have celiac or an allergy it's just not a safe choice. I have been here several times the first few times I went I had no complaints. The last two times I went I got so sick that unfortunately I can not trust that this restaurant is gluten free. Again very good but not a safe choice!
I got glutened twice! Months apart. I was sick before I even left the restaurant. I was very clear with the server that I needed everything to be gluten free and even wrote it on the Order form and they server informed me almost everything on their menu is anyways but they would be sure to make sure everything on our tray was gluten free. Guess not! :(. Fellow Celiac peeps beware! I am never going back.
*Updated* 7/29/15- I had eaten here twice without being glutened(celiac), both times the restaurant was rather dead. Tonight it was very VERY busy, and I was definitely glutened as I am writing this sick. Maybe okay for all adopting the GF diet, but not always a sure bet for us celiacs, so be careful. If its packed, I highly doubt the kitchen will have the time and cleanliness that those of us with autoimmune diseases need. As such I am changing my celiac safe status. If a place can not accommodate a celiac every time they are dinning out, they are not safe- period. Happy celiac- did not get sick eating here! Food was yummy, but tapas, so very small portions for a very big price, which is one of the contributing factors in the 4 star rating. Also, the waitstaff situation is confusing, our party of four had a hard time deciding who our server actually was ( we counted about 5 different people helping us during our visit), and because of this our drink orders kept getting messed up or completely forgotten. Still though, no ill effects after eating here which is huge.
Just went there yesterday and it was awesome! All of the things on the menu were GF except for like 3 and you could fill out your own card with your order on it. The food comes speedy fast, and it is delicious! Anyone who has celiac, I feel really safe here!
