This place is one of the absolute best GF options around. I get takeout from here several times a month. The food is delicious, and they completely understand and are conscientious about food allergies & celiac. Most of the menu is GF and they have lots of DF options as well. Huge bonus points for allowing you to specify allergy info in their app, making it really easy to order ahead for pickup.

I LOVE BarTaco. Will forever be one of my favorite must-eat places in Stamford. Most of the food is gluten free, so much so that they actually mark the ones *containing* gluten on the menu. The duck tacos are my absolute favorite. Their drinks are so fresh and the chips/salsa/guac trio is a must order.

In addition to celiac, the allergies at our table were: wheat, shellfish, peanuts and sunflower. Issues eating here: ZERO.

They added a fried oyster taco. Yummy. We also had guac, empanadas, street corn, duck tacos, and chicken soup. Everything was 100% delicious!

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.

This is one of my go to GF safe places! I love the food here and they are always so accommodating to my Celiac needs. I have never been sick or have had even slight contamination. The staff and Management team are always so pleasant and welcoming! I love Bar Taco and hope they area staple in DP for a long, long time!

Almost everything on the menu is gluten free. When I called to inquire they told me they are “the gluten free Mecca!” And they were right. Everything is so good and fresh ingredients. Let them know about the severe gluten allergy and didn’t get sick. Would definitely go back!

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!

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!

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

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.

There are many GF options. I am allergic to casein and eggs as well and the staff are right on in this area. I have never had an issue and I eat there three times per month. The food is excellent and I recommend the salsa verde (YUM!) I put it on everything and it’s so fresh every time. The staff at Bartaco Stamford are very friendly and allergy aware. They immediately notify the manager of the GF order and double check the allergies with items ordered with the manager. I feel very safe eating here and I recommend it highly. It’s actually the only restaurant in Stamford besides Teff that I feel safe eating at or from. If you go on their website they list every item on the menu with the top allergens including gluten for each item in a graph type layout.

This is a corporate chain taco place, but damn if it ain't good. The majority of the menu is GF. And everything I've tried is tasty. I've probably been here too many times at the expense of my other local taco joints. Shout out to Taqueria la Vaquita and Super Taqueria!

Not only is the food excellent but almost the entire menu is gluten free (the desserts contain gluten besides ice cream)! There also are separate fryers for GF items. Order by checking boxes on a card and there is a clear spot to specify your allergies. Servers were extremely knowledgeable about Celiac. I tested the tortilla chips, roja salsa, and chicken empanadas with my Nima Sensor and no gluten was found! I also ate a chicken and pork taco and did not feel the need to test any further - did not get sick. Food, drinks, atmosphere, and staff are awesome. Highly recommend!

My daughter loved her GF quesadillas, however she got sick from them. Just spoke to restaurant- said they can confirm quesadillas were GF but they were “horrified” to tell me they were cooked on a shared surface that cooks flour tortilla quesadillas. However, when I spoke to the waitress when ordering, she seemed to understand my daughter couldn’t tolerate cross contamination and I wrote this in the allergy section of the ticket... We thought the food was good, would go back without her, just not celiac safe if you order quesadillas..: though there are mainly all gluten free menu options besides the flour tortilla quesadilla!

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.

Their menu was almost entirely gluten free and everything that was not was very clearly marked. Tons of options to choose from! I had the lunch platter with a cauliflower, mushroom, and chicken pastor taco with a side of chicken soup. I also added a pork belly taco. The chips and salsa and guacamole platter was also gf. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and informed me that they would clear an area to cook on for me. This was my favorite meal in Nashville!! I would recommend to everyone celiac or not. UPDATE: I did go here on another trip to Nashville and wanted to order the mojo pork carnitas. They did let me know they were made with a GLUTEN REMOVED beer so they weren't safe for celiac! This wasn't listed on the menu so be careful with that.
