    Staff in front was not informed whatsoever about what was gluten free or not, outside of the fact that they used corn tortillas. My husband is celiac and had one of the worst glutenings in years from this restaurant after being assured everything he ordered was safe - and was also marked safe on the menu.

    White Duck has a nice selection of tacos marked GF. Unfortunately, they also tell you the chips are GF and unless you ask the right questions, you will assume they are telling the truth. Turns out, the chips are fried in a shared fryer and they claim they are still GF because they cook them at 350 degrees. Sad they are allowing what could be one of the best places in town for Celiacs become the most dangerous for us to eat in.

    Fryer is NOT GF! Corn tacos are made on same surface as wheat flour tacos! Chips are marked GF but aren’t. Cashier tried to convince me the FDA says anything deep fried over 375 degrees is automatically GF. Beware, this is not true! Just Google it.

    Best tacos I’ve had in my entire life. The duck and pork belly tacos were amazing. The menu is marked with GF items. Highly recommend.

    Wasn’t very Celiac gf friendly at all. Chips are fried with non gf items, yet they tell you they are gf. None of us enjoyed the tacos, gf or not.

    Lots of GF options. Our son, who had celiac, loved it. It is a popular site for both GF and nonGF. Packed house.

    I went here four times during my trip and couldn't get enough, all of their tacos are made on corn tortillas unless otherwise stated and everything on their menu is marked properly! So delicious! I would highly recommend for anyone who likes different and unique street tacos! If you're like me and have an appetite, I would recommend doing three tacos, I left completely full and happy every time!

    Ate here with my son who has celiac without any difficulty at all. Food was delicious and he did not have any reactions.

    Yum! Staff was helpful and informed. Our 2 kids with celiac ate here with us with plenty of options and no issues after. Fun, local and good food.

    4/5 because they share the grill with the tacos that are not marked as safe for celiac people, however, I am MADLY in love with their fish taco and their pork belly and pickled watermelon rind taco. And I have yet to react too the grill! They even clean it for me sometimes! I go as often as I can!
