Great food and really good about marking gluten and other allergies. Overall just an incredible place. They have this system for ordering using an app, I don’t think it’s required but i like it.

So so good!! I never worry when I go here! I love the tacos too. I think only 1 taco (the carnitas) has gluten so make sure to ask but most items are gluten free. I get chips and guacamole (salsa is gluten free too) along with the pork tacos, duck tacos, and cauliflower. Amazing!!

Almost everything was GF. As my wife is the only GF person in the house being able to order the family platter of tacos and have the whole thing be GF was awesome. They also have an allergy matrix which is very easy to read and there only seemed to be deserts and kids items that had gluten. Curbside pickup in Reston was also seamless. The food was ready right at the estimated time of pickup from ordering online.

Great place, delicious food! However the fryers are NOT dedicated to gluten free foods. I had the baja fish tacos and was told they were gluten free. The batter coating is gluten free but the fryers are not because they also fry churros in therm so I had a reaction after eating them. Other than the fryers, they are celiac friendly and otherwise knowledgable about gluten containing food items!

Rather than marking what’s gluten free on the menu, they mark what isn’t, which makes sense considering almost the entire menu is gluten free. Great food, and plenty of choices.

Just ate here last night and had a fantastic meal. It was wonderful to eat at a restaurant where the gluten free (and dairy free) options outnumber the non-gluten free ones. We split a large order of guac and then I had about 3 1/2 tacos (shared one with my husband) and I was full. They're small bites, but filling. The only thing I didn't love was that a glass of wine cost $10. I would have liked to order a second glass, but there's no way I can justify spending that much. Overall, we were very happy with our meal and I felt fine this morning.

Lots of gluten free choices marked on the menu. They have a spot on their order card to list food allergies. Our waitress was knowledgeable and modified our order accordingly.

The food is so good and fresh! No extra sour cream or other fixins unless you want it. Perfect for my husband and I who are gluten free and dairy free! The price wasn't too bad for the roasted duck bowl either!

Bartaco is very Celiac-friendly! And the food is absolutely delicious. Most of the food items are naturally gluten free (there is an asterisk on the menu next to food that contains gluten) and the staff takes extra precautions if you tell them you have an allergy. It is wonderful to be able to eat almost anything from the menu.

Staff was knowledgeable about gluten free. Most things on the menu are GF, except for a fee that are clearly marked not gluten-free. I had to call someone over to confirm after I received the fish tacos since they were fried (I was expecting grilled/baked fish.) They were indeed GF— their tempura batter is rice based.

Just had dinner so it's a little early to tell if I have a reaction, but the staff made me feel really confident that they had things under control. Great menu, tons of GF (and dairy free) choices. Every allergy ticket is run up separately and under the manager's supervision. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Fun atmosphere, reasonable prices. Dedicated fryer. All the tacos are GF!

Love this place! I've eaten here at least half a dozen times with no reaction. I have celiac and react super-fast, so I feel confident recommending this place. Chips and plantains are fried in GF fryers- as are the oysters, I believe (but double check this as I've never ordered them). Great cocktails, too!

A fantastic place I will absolutely be visiting again. the menu is gluten free to such an extent that they label the food that DOES contain gluten (and nuts). smaller portions sizes, much like tapas. the staff is very knowledgeable and willing to accomidate. simple dining experience. delicious food. recommend the duck, sesame ribeye, and pork belly tacos. guac also not bad. good atmosphere, casual but can also be a little more if you like.

tl;dr - great place. very gluten friendly. delicious food. will certainly be visiting again.

While I enjoyed the food I was a bit nervous eating since there is no specific waiter for the table. You can specify “gluten allergy “ on your meal ticket but I’d rather speak to a person and be reassured I’m safe to eat there. Food was good and I didn’t get sick but I just would have appreciated a more personable experience

One of best places in Raleigh to have celiac disease and be 100% safe eating at. Great food and very safe. Most of the menu is gf on its own but there is also an option to identify which items are for those with allergies when ordering so extra precautions are taken.
