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.

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.

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 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!

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.

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!

Wow! My new obsession! Guac was fresh and phenomenal. I love that every taco BUT the carnitas is GF. The baja were great and the pork belly were my absolute favorite. The manager told us how serious they take celiac... a manager handles the ticket and they use a red card to show whats gf and whats not. An awesome find!

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!

This place is sooo cute, fun music, friendly staff, delicious food. Let them know you are gf.. they take it serious. Have gf tacos. Pork tacos are not gf. Must order guac+Roja+vieja !! FYI their “grilled” chicken is like rotisserie (mixture of white and dark meat). Chicken chorizo taco and bowls are to die for lol Must try at Seaport!!

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.

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.

This place is amazing. First thing I noticed is that the interior of this place is really really well done and I don't normally notice that kinda stuff. I just remember what this building looked like when the last business occupied it and it looked nothing like it does today. On top of that, literally everything I have had here is amazing. Pork belly tacos are so so good, guac is as fresh as it gets, steak tacos are tender. Even tried the coconut gelato, best i have ever had. Also my wife has celiac and just about everything is gluten free!

Bartaco is not a dedicated gluten-free restaurant but it’s pretty close! Instead of items being marked GF on the menu, items that CONTAIN gluten are marked with a little ^ because there are so few of them. They have fried corn fritters, chicken empanadas, fried shrimp and fried fish tacos that are GF. They have two friers (according to everyone who’s waited on us so far). One for their GF products and one for regular items. We’ve been 3 times recently and I haven’t had any reactions. I’m very sensitive so that’s definitely a win! I highly recommend trying it out if you’re in central Dallas.
