I went for the first time this week and found out the entire menu is gluten free except the kids menu and some deserts. They have dedicated GF fryers for the corn chips and other fried items. I have the Baja fish taco and the batter is made from rice flour. It is such a relief to know I won’t get sick here!

My all time favorite restaurant! 90% of the menu is gluten free. Celiac safe fried fish and fried oyster tacos. The elote corn fritters are the best thing I’ve ever eaten. They taste like cheese curds and elote combined!! My favorite taco is the pork belly…so good! Staff is insanely friendly, the atmosphere is eccentric and I couldn’t recommend this place enough.

Bartaco was amazing! The online ordering system clearly states ingredients and as lows you to identify allergens with each item. The food was so good!! The chips and verde salsa, the #bartacosecret tacos with brussel sprouts with spicy candy pepitas were one of the best things I’d ever eaten. My son loved the chicken rice bowl. Knowledgeable and friendly staff confirmed safety of menu selections upon pick up. The only downside, no gf desserts! Will absolutely be back!

Had a great experience. The app you order on allows you to select gluten as an allergy. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be coming back!

Talked to person serving us to make sure food was gluten free and safe for our daughter who has Celiac disease. Ordered kids fish tacos, kids guacamole and chips and lobster taco and was fine. She enjoyed it!

Nearly everything is gluten free, and they have a dedicated fryer. Got a fried fish taco and fried corn fritters - both great. Staff was helpful and very knowledgeable about celiac.

We asked the host about gluten on the way in. He said everything on the menu except the dessert was gluten free. So we didn't think twice when we ordered my Celiac daughter the kids plate. It was not obvious from the ordering app that the kids quesadilla on the platter was NOT gluten free. There is a spot on the ordering to mark allergies and we did select "gluten allergy" for her meal. Even though we didn't catch the gluten, I would have expected that us selecting allergy would either indicate to change the shell automatically or for someone to come and ask about it but neither happened. So my 4 yr old spent the night puking. Checked the menu this morning and yup, kids quesadilla contains gluten.

Everything on menu GF except deserts and pork tacos. Great atmosphere and delicious food. After chips and three different salsa type dishes, devoured several street tacos and half roasted chicken. We will be back!

Really, really delicious tacos and bowls. Most of their menu is gluten free so it's pretty safe for celiacs. They lose a star for one thing that's important to know - the pork taco is braised in a GLUTEN-REMOVED beer, which is not safe for celiacs. They did come back to tell me so I was able to order something else, but it's marked gluten-free on the menu and not every waiter may know to tel you about the beer so I wanted to note it here. Everything I had was amazingly delicious so you should definitely go, just stay away from the pork taco.

Everything is gf aside from the deserts. I have celiacs and have eaten there dozens of times with absolutely zero problems which is super rare for me. They even have fried fish and shrimp tacos that are totally celiac friendly!

Bartaco was wonderful! They have a separate fryer for their gluten free options and the waiter asked about allergies. My celiac kids ate the chips and salsa, fried corn fritters, chicken empanadas and a couple different tacos. Neither had any reactions and both want to return. Sadly, there are no gluten free deserts.

Delicious and unique tacos. I have a gluten and dairy allergy and they were very aware of options. Almost everything is gluten free and most can be modified for dairy free. Tacos are small so I tried 4 different tacos: tuna, duck, mushroom, and chicken.

I have Celiacs and I went here based on all the decent reviews. Unfortunately, after eating here, I got sick for 3 days. I ordered GF chicken tacos and I tasted fish at random times. I waited for the waiter and tried to tell someone but no one came (their system for service is weird…you have to scan the table and I never saw any workers walking around after). I ordered 3 tacos and ate one. It was gross. I paid for my food and I kindly let them know it was not good. I don’t think they operate like this all the time, I may have just had an isolated, bad experience. I was sick with stomach pains for 3 days.

C'est le paradis 🥰 Tout le menu est sans gluten exception du menu enfant qui contient des tortillas au blé. C'est délicieux, parfaitement assaisonné, assez relevé tout de même.

The food was delicious and the manager couldn’t be nicer when I explained that I have celiac. He not only told me that the menu is 90% GF but proceeded to quadruple check about a food I wanted to eat that he wasn’t sure about! I felt totally safe eating here and can’t wait to come back :)
