Reviews, awards, and the packed house don’t lie. This is a special strip mall gem. The tacos were much heavier and greasier than I expected (tons of cheese & guac). Next time I’d get at least a couple vegan ones and specify no cheese with the corn tortilla. Limited seating, all outside. Just 2 blocks from Highland Park A line Metro.

Amazing tacos!! They don’t list they are gluten free on their website or menu. Based on reviews from here I reached out via email to the restaurant to ask if they are gluten free and the owner responded that they were and lots of celiacs come and have no reactions. I didn’t react either. It was so good!

Amazing tacos! They don’t advertise gluten free, but when we called to ask about GF they sounded confident and mentioned celiac before we brought it up so staff seemed knowledgeable. Ate here without getting sick and so delicious!

I love Villa's! Have never gotten sick from Villa's and they have vegan options as well for my girlfriend. Their lime cucumber and jaimaca drinks are incredible but the highlight for me is the combo of 3 meat tacos with guac and cheese. Genuinely some of the most consistently high quality tacos I've had. Just make sure if you have a vegan member of your party to have them specify no cheese on the vegan platter!

Villa’s Tacos is 100 percent gluten free and is the best taco I’ve ever had in my life pre and post Celiac Disease diagnosis. They freshly make blue corn tortillas with every order and don’t use flour tortillas at all. I usually get the Villa’s trio and it’s SO good. The owner called every vendor to triple check that everything was gluten free after he found out how severe my reactions can be. I will say I steer clear of the pickled onions from the salsa bar (even though they should be gluten free) because I don’t do well with them. One more note, they don’t have indoor seating and the outdoor seating is limited so you may need to enjoy these in your car or take them home. SOOO WORTH IT THOUGH! Had some last night and want some again now lol.

Head over heels for Villa's. The cheese baked corn tortilla is primo. They're so generous with their ingredients. So much flavor and satisfying. Go hungry because the tacos are very filling. Sadly, I don't think this is a celiac friendly spot but I also didn't ask.

All GF taco stand, won best tacos in LA two years running (LA Taco). Yummy super loaded tacos on blue corn tortillas. They only use handmade corn tortillas here so it's a safe spot for GF (I'm Celiac so this is important). Fun vibes and atmosphere waiting in line at this family run stand, everyone was so nice. Hibiscus agua fresca not too sweet, which is perfect! Plus, a wide range of salsas. Look forward to trying a quesadilla and/or mulitas next -- these are tough to find gluten free. Be prepared to wait, but it’s quick once you order. Accept cash and Venmo.
