Celiac and had no reaction. Ordered fish tacos, chips and Guac, rice and beans. All was good just not the most flavorful. But good quality.

Almost everything is gf. So delicious. Ok have gone twice at 2 different locations. They are way better than Chipotle. Items aren’t marked. I looked it up on line and they were helpful as well.

Very obvious cross contamination. I am extremely surprised by the current rating. Corn tortillas are dipped in shared oil and placed on same grille. Attempted to explain and staff did not understand. Not safe for celiac; ok for lifestyle people but not for true gluten sensitive folks

Stopped here while between tourist sites because of good reviews on here. It was a crazy busy lunch time but guy taking our order made sure to go back and mark our ticket for cc protocols. However, as person after person got their food and we didn’t, it was clear our order got bumped bc of the volume and the need to change gloves and clean- we finally had to ask and they had to go find our order to start making it. Food was good, safe, but going at a busy time was a problem.

I've only had tacos. The gf tacos use corn tortillas heated on a isolated grill top. There seems to be a chance of cross contamination as the filling is added to the tortilla but in my 10+ visits, I have not been glutened yet. It is good enough and they take enough care (at non peak hours) that I feel safe eating there

You can have the corn tacos or Burrito bowl without any problems and they can put gf on the order so that cross-contamination is minimized.

Had a great meal and didn’t get sick. I was a little skeptical when the girl I ordered from didn’t know what meat was gluten free. She asked the other cashier who suggested she go and ask a cook. She came back and told me all the meat was GF. I had the burrito bowl with Barbacoa shredded beef and it was great!

Excellent place for some yummy Mexican food. I ordered the burrito bowl (but they did offer corn tortillas). The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I did not get sick and will be back.

Was in DC 3 days sightseeing. I have celiac and so does my son. We ate here four different times and loved it. My son liked the tacos but couldn't stop getting the gf queso. For gf orders they have a dedicated person change gloves, wrap fresh corn tortillas in aluminum and prepare the order. Tortilla chips are gf.

I had high expectations for this place after reading some reviews. I go to all the popular Mexican restaurants so I find it easy to give my opinion here.

Overall the food was decent, no brilliant flavors or spices mostly salt and pepper. The rice is completely unseasoned white rice, no cilantro or lime. The steak was very plain too, however it was tender. I would give their food 2 stars because it was so bland, but adding 1 star because it did taste fresh and they did accommodate gluten intolerant customers.

Their chips and queso are gluten free, and to make all the dishes better I put queso on them.

Be careful because some of their salsas have wheat, you should ask which ones.

I would rate them below all the major Mexican chains even California Tortilla and Moe's...

We thought the tacos were very good, especially the fish tacos. I didn't have any symptoms after eating there. The order got confused several times, but they did their best to get it worked out.

Unfortunately both times I've been here, I've gotten sick. Make sure if you get tacos that you specify that you want gluten free, not just corn tortillas. They handle them differently. I'm not sure if I picked up cross contamination from the chips or what. However, well priced, and while the food isn't spectacular, it's good with a bit of salt, pepper and lime.

Due to being GFCF I eat a lot of Mexican food but even though it was quick and inexpensive, I wouldn't call it fast food. It was freshly prepared, the salsas tasted home made and it was delicious!! What a wonderful treat. I wish we had these in New Jersey!!

Less than $5 for lunch from District Taco - corn tortillas with pinto beans, rice, guac, and mixed veggies. Tell them you're gluten free at the register and they'll make your meal special to avoid cross contamination!

I could taste the quality of the ingredients. You can mark gluten-free when ordering from Grub Hub. Felt great after eating it both times and will definitely be coming back.

I asked for a GF menu, but they do not have one. The woman informed me she could make a selection to indicate gluten free when I ordered. However, she then asked if I wanted a flour tortilla 😅. They have kiosks you can place your order at as well - which might be better. The food was good. Not something I’d go out of my way for, but if I needed something quick and convenient, it’s great.

District Taco does an amazing job with gluten free. When ordering on their app or at the kiosk in the restaurant, you can indicate Gluten Free. They change gloves and have strict protocols for GF. They do offer flour tortillas and I asked about cross contamination with the corn tortillas.. they showed me that the corn tortillas and flour tortillas are heated on separate equipment so there is no CC. We really loved eating here prior to Celiac diagnosis and even more so now!!

Most of the taco ingredients here are gluten free, as long as you go with corn tortillas. We specified gluten free in the kiosk ordering system for my son and a staff member came over to check with us about the breakfast taco potatoes he'd selected, because they're cooked in the same fryer as their churros. We opted out of the potatoes and everything was great. Plus, the tortilla chips have a dedicated fryer!

Their online menu has good info about gluten and allergies.
