They know what you mean when you ask for gluten free, and they place aluminum foil over the grill when warming your corn tortillas. They have always gone out of their way to accommodate me. And the tacos are great!

Before ordering I told them I had celiac disease and asked if they knew what it was. The woman behind the counter looked at me like I had 8 eyeballs. I then said I have a gluten allergy and I would need the staff to change their gloves. She still looked at me like I was a freak, but she called out to the staff “gluten free.” (Ok, close enough.) They did change their gloves. Corn tortillas go on a griddle that is separate from the flour tortillas. The chance for cross contamination is definitely via the ladles they use for ingredients, since they touch the tortillas. I didn’t feel super sick after but I did feel a little off the day after eating here. Your experience may just depend on who’s on staff and which location you go to.

This place is literally so delicious. And online ordering gives an option for “gluten free”! Highly suggest

I had heard this place was good for GF people, but the manager was quite rude to me and my party when I asked for the GF menu I had read about. According to him, there is absolutely no way they can properly serve someone with gluten allergies or celiac. Very disappointing after reading and hearing good things.

Love District Taco! I usually get the bowl, but corn tortillas are gf. Breakfast tacos are good - have to exclude the fries. They make chips, fries and churros in the same fryer, but that’s about the only cross contamination.
