Wonderful experience here! The food is amazing and the atmosphere is great. There isn’t a GF menu but everything on the menu is GF except the churros. The manager even mentioned that the churros are fried in a separate fryer before I could ask. I definitely will be back and highly recommended Bartaco. Give it a try!

Excellent food and clearly marked GF items. It was great to find things like fried fish tacos that were safe to eat! Plantains were excellent as was the street corn. Highly recommend!

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.

Almost the entire menu is GF (although no separate menu), and when ordering (online right now even when you go in person), you can select GF and DF among other allergies. Food is always delicious, and their margaritas are the best around. Only place in North Hills that I feel like is always safe for CD.

Really like their ordering system and way of marking GF. It might be tricky if someone wth your table is ordering gluten items bc they seem to default to putting things on shareable trays. Food is great and have had good experiences with take out and dine in.

With covid, you order through an app. And the app allows you to flag gluten as an allergen! Within moments of ordering, a server came to double check my order as I had called out gluten, to go over possible contamination. Excellent care for celiacs, and great food!!

(I’m not celiac but will get noticeably sick if there is any gluten in the food that I eat.) I’ve been to Bartaco four times, and not once have I ever had any sort of reaction to the food there. The menu doesn’t directly indicate which foods are GF but I learned from asking that about 85-90% of the menu can be made GF upon request, and their menu you can order online from had a gluten free option you can hit. The staff thoroughly checks each of the items and they were knowledgeable about the ingredients in everything. And when I asked they said that the gluten free food was made on separate sanitized grills, with separate utensils. The food is delicious, and I would definitely recommend!

Delicious food. Allergens clearly labeled on menu and online ordering platform asks about allergies on each item ordered. Seemed like 90% was gf. Food was delicious. I got the pork belly bowl, husband got a selection of tacos. You have the choice between lettuce or corn tortillas.

The staff was able to answer all of my questions. They have 7 fryers and all but one is gluten free. Everything is served with corn tortillas unless otherwise specified. All alcoholic drinks except some beer were gluten free. Can eat most of what’s on the menu.

Lobster and fried fish taco are excellent! Was able to eat the homemade chips and salsa which were also very good. Most items are gluten free.

This location doesn’t have table service you order online after downloading the QR code. At first it’s kind of a hassle since no one is there to Answer questions but they are helpful once you get someone to your table. After figuring it out it’s quite convenient. And ordering additional food or drinks is very convenient as well. Service was quick

There are more gluten-free things on their menu than non gluten-free so they mark the things with gluten. The staff is super great about explaining everything to you and their allergy process not just for gluten but any allergy. They use a separate order card and tray for customers with dietary restrictions. I've eaten here twice and not gotten sick. It's also very nice that they use a gluten free flour in their breaded fish.

Some of the best tacos in town. I love that you can mix and match different kinds. I highly recommend the brussel sprouts taco.

Bartaco is so fantastic for anyone with food sensitivities. I am so happy they finally have Raleigh location! Their menu is clearly marked with any items that DO contain gluten, which is only a couple. Everything else is safe! This will be my new favorite gluten-free spot in town.

Great place to go have lunch and dinner solo or with friends. Tacos are GF because they use corn. You can sub for lettuce cups. 95% of the menu is GF. So lots of options for everyone. They have gluten removed beer and a cider. Also their cocktails are gf. You can write in the menu your allergens. I wrote no gluten or dairy and so any item I ordered that comes with dairy they took the dairy off. Menu is written so they label items that have gluten in it.

Ohh my gosh these tacos are fantastic!! Wasn’t going to order the Baja fish but the woman at the restaurant told me I had to try it. She was right! My favorite of the 3 that I tried, and I rarely like fish but it was a great treat to have a GF battered fish option. Will definitely be back!

Ordered tacos and a mushroom bowl - The tacos had fried fish and oysters and safe for Celiacs. The food is delicious! The online ordering was easy and the food was ready quickly for even easier pickup. They asked about allergies for every chosen item, too. Highly recommend!
