    Most items on the menu can be made gluten free. Knowledgeable staff.

    This place is hit or miss for me - sometimes I get a little cross contamination sick and sometimes I'm fine.

    I have celiacs and am very sensitive. This is one of my favorite places. I've never gotten sick. Good food, and staff is knowledgeable.

    My mom has extreme gluten sensitivity so always orders from the gluten-free menu. Unfortunately, when we ate here she broke out in a terrible rash afterwards most likely due to cross contamination. She never eats the chips but instead orders corn tortillas. She also ordered off of the gluten-free menu. I personally like El Taco and all Fifth Group restaurants but I do not have gluten issues. If you do, I would advise you to go somewhere else that is more knowledgeable and experienced with gluten sensitivity.

    They are very accommodating and aware just make sure and let them know you're celiac. They almost always get it right and the food is really good and not too expensive. I have had my order come out wrong before ( fried jalepenos ended up on my tacos) but I sent it back and they were great about it - offering free drinks. Fun atmosphere.
