    Awesome street taco place and entire menu (minus the french toast) is gf. They say they change the deep fryer oil after the weekend and the crispy fish during the week is gf, but I don’t quite believe that so I just steer clear... not a big issue since all the other tacos will blow your mind. The chips and shared plates are also really solid!

    This is my FAVORITE restaurant in Chicago- been going here since it opened. I prefer this location to the River North one- it’s a lot more “chill” and the menu has more tacos. Seriously the most delicious tacos ever. And the margaritas are wonderful, I usually get whatever the “seasonal” margarita is at that time. Go!!!!!

    My husband and I really enjoyed our meal here. It was so great that my Celiac husband could order anything off the menu. They said everything is GF except for a couple brunch items. We tried their guacamole, 3 types of tacos, the corn, and margaritas. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service was good too. The owner checked in us to make sure our experience was good and also told us about his other location which we hope to visit soon. The space is very cool too and they have a small outoor area with seating. Overall we had a great experience and look forwars to returning.

    The entire kitchen is gluten free. The only gluten containing items are the drinks. Everything tasted good and I didn't get sick.

    Totally celiac safe. Almost everything is gluten free, the whole taco menu is, they have fried french toast on Saturday and Sunday that isnt gluten free but everything else is. The fried chicken tacos, only available Wednesday, were incredible. I also had the vegan tacos which were delicious. I had leftovers and ate one at home with a runny fried egg and it was perfect. Their chips and salsa are also delicious. Edit fish tacos are also some of the best tacos I’ve ever had

    menu proudly states everything (minus the French toast) is gluten free, but don’t be lulled into a false sense of security... the free cinnamon sugar crisps on our table turned out to be made with flour tortillas when we asked which then made me wonder where the heck they fried them and if in the process they opened up the Pandora’s box of cross contamination... fortunately I didn’t get any reaction and my chorizo potato tacos were delicious. Still, I could have done without the uncertainty.

    Yeah man. This place was safe, the server was cool and didn't stress out about my celiac cross contamination paranoia, and the food was damn good. Note that it's not totally gluten free on weekends because they have French toast, which also means the fryer is not safe on weekends (they change out the fryer on Mondays) aka avoid the fish tacos on weekends. But I asked them to change gloves before making my dish and they were cool with it. Had a great and safe experience!

    The fact that this is (not officially) a gluten-free facility (their brunch french toast brings wheat into ‘da house) just became a secondary reason to come here. Its Michelin Star restaurant rating is here for a reason. The food is simply amazing. As a Celiac...I can’t believe what I just experienced. You can’t go wrong with a thing on the menu, and the margarita’s are also to die for (and I’m picky about them, especially since I normally can only drink while watching friends eat!). The atmosphere gets a huge thumbs up too. A foodie’s dream. We will be back!

    This place was fantastic. Everything on the menu was gluten free and my non-gf Chicagoan hosts were super impressed and grateful to know about this gem. Love love.

    I was in Chicago a few weeks ago and went to Takito Kitchen. Everything was gluten free. I had a wonderful experience. The tacos and drinks were amazing and the service was outstanding. I was even able to get dessert.

    Fabulous restaurant! The tacos are AMAZING! Everything on the menu if GF, the fried fish tacos are fantastic! The menu is obviously carefully articulated for delicious flavor combinations for each dish. I recommend for any Celiac, and just anyone in general! My non-Celiac (gluten loving) husband was incredibly impressed as well!

    So happy "Find me gf" directed us here! Would be considered pricey for ordinary tacos--but these are not ordinary! Would love to explore the other options on the menu!

    Super delicious tacos and everything on the menu is gluten-free, so it's easy to share! The service was amazing and the margaritas were great. Our waitress wasn't bothered when I continued to double check everything was gluten-free even after being told the whole menu is. Would highly recommend!

    this place was amazing! The food was great! I went here for a dinner date with my 1 year old. we had crispy fish tacos and tomatillo pistachio salsa. They cut up some fruit for my son, which is so so nice. 100% reccomend.

    The hostess, Katie, and our waiter, Bobby, were really wonderful about helping me determine what I could eat given my numerous dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, vinegar). They worked with the kitchen to ensure I would have a safe and tasty meal. I got an order of the crispy fish tacos (they use rice flour), and an order of the lamb tacos. Both were delicious, even with avocado being substituted for the fixings they are usually served with in order to accommodate my dietary restrictions. My husband loved his Amish chicken tacos and La Paloma cocktail. We will definitely return!

    Some of the best food I've ever had. Ever. Pork belly taco is incredible, the website makes the restaurant more casual, but it's trendy and a bit upscale, perfect for a date night, girls night, or for a family dinner. ENTIRE MENU IS GF, servers are knowledgeable, helpful, and subtle about making sure you get what you need!

    Great creative and delicious tacos. All items are gluten free except for the masa crackers that come with the salsas, but they have rice crackers as a replacement. They were voted one of the best 25 restaurants in Chicago.
