We did catering here, and the manager explained they fry the churros (which have gluten) separately from the chips. I’ll update if any bad aftereffects.

Very obvious cross contamination. I am extremely surprised by the current rating. Corn tortillas are dipped in shared oil and placed on same grille. Attempted to explain and staff did not understand. Not safe for celiac; ok for lifestyle people but not for true gluten sensitive folks

Stopped here while between tourist sites because of good reviews on here. It was a crazy busy lunch time but guy taking our order made sure to go back and mark our ticket for cc protocols. However, as person after person got their food and we didn’t, it was clear our order got bumped bc of the volume and the need to change gloves and clean- we finally had to ask and they had to go find our order to start making it. Food was good, safe, but going at a busy time was a problem.

Before ordering I told them I had celiac disease and asked if they knew what it was. The woman behind the counter looked at me like I had 8 eyeballs. I then said I have a gluten allergy and I would need the staff to change their gloves. She still looked at me like I was a freak, but she called out to the staff “gluten free.” (Ok, close enough.) They did change their gloves. Corn tortillas go on a griddle that is separate from the flour tortillas. The chance for cross contamination is definitely via the ladles they use for ingredients, since they touch the tortillas. I didn’t feel super sick after but I did feel a little off the day after eating here. Your experience may just depend on who’s on staff and which location you go to.

I had heard this place was good for GF people, but the manager was quite rude to me and my party when I asked for the GF menu I had read about. According to him, there is absolutely no way they can properly serve someone with gluten allergies or celiac. Very disappointing after reading and hearing good things.

Love District Taco! I usually get the bowl, but corn tortillas are gf. Breakfast tacos are good - have to exclude the fries. They make chips, fries and churros in the same fryer, but that’s about the only cross contamination.

I've only had tacos. The gf tacos use corn tortillas heated on a isolated grill top. There seems to be a chance of cross contamination as the filling is added to the tortilla but in my 10+ visits, I have not been glutened yet. It is good enough and they take enough care (at non peak hours) that I feel safe eating there

Almost everything can be made gluten free, and they distinguish the corn tortillas as gluten free or not, depending on if they heat them on the same surface as the flour tortillas. Easy, good value and delicious.

You can find me here most Saturday afternoons! My usual: chicken taco on corn tortilla with black beans and cheese, a breakfast taco (just egg and cheese), and chips and queso. My only complaint is that if you get the large chips and queso, there aren’t enough chips! They serve beer (not sure if any are gf) and Boylan’s soda, but I never get a drink.

I got three take-out tacos in early October 2019. The options offered were thoughtful; the food was well-made and generous for the price. This place is a good bargain.

Even better, the clerk at the register was happy to answer my questions. There were many, many GF options, and the clerk volunteered that, once he put "gluten free" on my ticket, the kitchen staff would change gloves and take allergen precautions.

The tacos (al pastor, pollo asado & guacamole) were delicious, and I was able to have a worry-free meal. This is a good place.

Great food! Even with technical difficulties leading to no corn tortillas or eggs, everything else is still fantastic! I had the taco bowl with chicken, bacon, rice, beans and sour cream. Yum!! In fact, only thing that has gluten are the flour tortillas.

Everything except flour tortilla (thus burritos) are Gf. Clearly marked allergen menu with all ingredients online. Chips are marked as gf and I confirmed in restaurant that they’re not fried in anything shared. Mentioned GF before I started ordering and they flagged someone to handle my order individually. Very easy and comfortable ordering experience! Also all salsas at their free salsa bar are GF.

Had a great meal and didn’t get sick. I was a little skeptical when the girl I ordered from didn’t know what meat was gluten free. She asked the other cashier who suggested she go and ask a cook. She came back and told me all the meat was GF. I had the burrito bowl with Barbacoa shredded beef and it was great!

Most taco places should be gluten friendly so when we asked about it here the cashier was good to ask. What made the service and place exceptional was that the manager stopped my order (pollo asado bowl) because she said she wasn’t sure about the marinade but she made a call and came back and said all was good for being gluten free. The bowl was ok. The chips and guacamole were excellent! To be honest, I would go back in a heartbeat because the manager, Claudia, took the extra step to make sure that all was going to be ok. She even stopped by our table to ask how it was. I explained to her that I had just walked down the row of restaurants where they are located asking for gluten free options and most of the front staff were clueless. Thank you!

District Taco is great! Not only is almost everything on the menu gluten free (the one exception is the flour tortillas), but the staff are trained in gluten friendly protocols. As long as you mention gluten free when you order, they will put it on the ticket. I watched as gloves were changed before making my tacos, and fresh aluminum foil was put on the grill for my corn tortillas! Also the flavors are amazing!

Was in DC 3 days sightseeing. I have celiac and so does my son. We ate here four different times and loved it. My son liked the tacos but couldn't stop getting the gf queso. For gf orders they have a dedicated person change gloves, wrap fresh corn tortillas in aluminum and prepare the order. Tortilla chips are gf.
