Great gluten free dining experience here! Everything is 100% GF. We went for brunch and had the home made (corn) tortillas with salsa and guacamole and GF churros for dessert. They were DELICIOUS - it was such a treat. I was with a non celiac and they loved their meal. Couldn’t even tell it was gluten free. Definitely will be back and highly recommend if you’re looking for a safe dining experience.

El Pacho does accept parties of 2 when you walk-up but not through the reservation system.

Unbelievable. This place wont take parties of 2. Some restaurants focus on the customers.. chalk this one up for the ones that dont. Good to know up front. I will pass it on.

Gluten. Free. Churros. Need I say more? This place is a gem, and I’ve brought so many gluten eating friends here who now go back without me. The restaurant is free of gluten and is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the city, hands down.

Really delicious and small menu. The vegetarian black bean tacos are the best my wife has had (including mine apparently 🤨) and the fish tacos were done to perfection. The sauces that dress the tacos, fries, and corn is really some else! When you ask about gluten-free items the reply is "everything is gluten-free".

Note: We arrived at 5:45 on a Friday and soon after we arrived all the other tables were taken by walk-ups. You cannot make a reservation for 2 people so be ready for a wait list or arrive early. But I promise, it's worth the wait!

This entire place is dedicated gluten free. They even have gluten free churros! And the food is excellent. Love the fish tacos. They also have vegan options. Something for everyone!

Small place, so may be worth booking as they are often fully booked

What a rare experience being able to order off the menu and not make a fuss. Everything is gluten free. They even have a disclaimer on the menu letting you know that they do have gluten on the premises, but that’s only for beer.

Food was also fantastic and the pricing was very reasonable. Get the Pocho fries!!

Will be back and bringing friends to show them how gluten free can be!

LOVE El Pocho. It is my go-to for quick delicious dinners, prices are pretty good, and the food is great. It's tiny and cute, the outdoor seating is nice in the summer, the cocktails are fun, and definitely safe space for the churros!! Everything is 100% gf, except the beer :)

This place is a celiac's dream come true!!! EVERYTHING on their food menu is gluten free, even the churros! We started with the fries served with chicken in adobo (special of the day) and the fries were super crispy and delicious and the spice level was perfect. Also had the deep fried avocado taco and other tacos too, everything was delicious. I would of eaten more tacos, but I definitely needed to keep space for some churros. Out of habit, I double confirmed that they were gluten free, and I was told they were, and they were so worth it!!! Even my hubby who is not celiac, loved them! We will definitely go back!

Fantastic GF restaurant that I would visit frequently even if I didn't have celiac! Sadly that's all too rare for me... On the few occasions I eat out, I find myself at places where it is safe to eat but not necessarily where I would want to eat if given the unlimited options that non-celiacs have. Luckily, this place offers both. It is also great that everything is GF so you can share dishes. Service was very friendly and helpful. A highlight of our trip to Toronto. My daughters (one of whom is also celiac) wish it was next door to us in London rather than in Toronto!

This place is completely gluten free. (Except for the beer). They make all their tacos and chips with corn. And their Churros are to die for! Omg. I will dream about these churros. Closest I have come to having a real donut like texture since I was diagnosed over a decade ago. Amazing little place. Not a lot of tables— go early and go often.

HOLY ****! Thank you for serving me the best (and gluten free) churros ever made! Everything is gluten free. My girldfriend and I had wonderful tacos (tacos gringos are wonderful but spicy), and churros thereafter. The churros were so wonderful that we had to comeback the day after before leaving for Montreal.

Loved the fried tofu tacos, the sauce and sesame seeds balances it all out. Churros were great but tasted a bit eggy. I liked the vibe of the place but thought it was pricey considering the size of the two tiny tacos. Would’ve liked to try more but didn’t want to pay a fortune.
