All of the food is gluten free! The tacos were quite good, I would go back again. I have had tastier tacos pre-Celiac, but it is so nice to not have to worry here. Prices were reasonable as well. Tastiest item was the chips and guacamole.

Food was good! Always wonderful when a place is completely GF. I’m confident the food was safe. Here’s my “BUT”… but—-the service was awful! We drove an hour an 45 minutes to be there when they opened. They said reservations only. Tables were empty everywhere and only one couple behind us (who also didn’t make reservations). I said that should be mentioned on your website. No comment from the hostess. So, we asked to make a “to-go” order. It was done within a half hour. Great! BUT…they had NO disposable forks/spoons for us and they could have cared less that we just couldn’t go home to eat since as I mentioned (again) to the hostess—we drove an hour and 45 minutes to dine here. So-good food, crappy service and hospitality.

So from what we read online and asked in person everything including the delicious chocolate cake is gluten free. Since my gf got celiacs it’s been hard finding places where she can eat safely. But it was such a relief to just be able to eat everything with worry or care (we ate way to much). I would totally recommend them for anyone with a gluten intolerance or celiacs. Yes we will be going back. Additionally the food was amazing!

Our daughter had a small pandemic wedding recently. Since she did not want to get sick at her own wedding, we ordered "catering" from here. It was perfect! Dawn (the manager) helped me pick the appropriate amount of food and made very good suggestions.

We got two family meals, enchiladas, and some sides/extras. With the family meals you pick various proteins. It comes with chips and guac, salads, handmade tortillas, and all the toppings you need to make several tacos per person. My daughter loves the enchiladas so we got 3 orders and it came in a pan we could keep warm in the oven if needed. The corn side was a big hit.

We didn't order dessert because my daughter made her own "to die for" wedding cake.

This place is tops in my book. If you ever need to be sure there are no "gluten mistakes", come here. You won't be disappointed!

Dedicated gluten-free facility!!

Salt Creek Taco is hands down one of the best gluten-free options in Chicagoland. I try to go here as often as possible even though it is a good distance from my house. The staff is always amazing & the tacos are so unique + flavorful! Their guacamole + chips are heavenly.

Food was fine. They don’t have any gluten on site except they used to have flour tortillas that were cooked on the flat top and they recently got rid of them. I think they also have beer so just don’t order that.

Their fryer is dedicated but ask just to be safe. They are very nice and the chef will come out and answer your questions if you want.

The food quality is why it is four stars. Everything was very salty. It was good, but way too much salt.

The menu is 100% gluten free. Coming from Texas, I’ve missed good tasting Mexican food and this is the first place I’ve found in Chicagoland that gets it right! All the ingredients are locally sourced and the corn tortillas are ground and homemade in house. Excellent food and our son with celiac was so excited he could order every item on menu.
