I was recently at Del Taco and the employees didnt seem to know what i was talking about when explaining my gluten-free diet. Does anyone know of any thing gluten-free at Del Taco?

If the employees have no clue, then I'd just forget about it. The odds of them cross contaminating something sounds like it would be high. Though if you really want to eat there, try calling the company? Someone there should know. =)

Here is their website http://www.deltaco.com/, you might want to try to contact them directly.

I know where I live we have "Taco Bell" and there is not much there that Celiac's can eat.

I called Del Taco (number at www.deltaco.com).

They said the following are gluten-free:

Plain hamburger patty

Cheddar cheese

Spicy Jack Cheese

Rice

Red Sauce

Green Sauce

Taco Shells

Tortilla Shells

Lettuce Tomato Onion

Vanilla Shake.

The ground beef seasoning HAS GLUTEN.

And they warn that the environment does process gluten foods, so nothing is guaranteed. :(

Aren't we all better off not eating that fast food crap anyway?! ;) Count not being able to sustain your life from the menu at Del Taco as a blessing in disguise! Make your own tacos at home. We pour Old El Paso Mild flavored taco sauce on our ground beef. It's waaay better than anything gluten full on Del's menu. Look for the silver lining in some of these things! :D

I called Taco Bell (not the same as Del Taco...) but I know that Celiacs can have pintos and cheese and bean tostadas. Other taco shells are contaminated by gluten.

I am a new gluten free guy, and am still learning. I did Taco Tuesday last night and had 6 hard shell taco's for 2 bucks. This morning I am bloated and... I say skip most of those menu items.

If you have a Chipolte near you, they seem good. On the website they will tell you that they only fry chips & taco shell in the oil. You can see them making your food & ask them to put on clean gloves as they may have been handling a flour tortilla.

I work at del taco, your really playing with fire there. The patties you can have but they toast the buns in the same spot. I just eat at chipotle and use the del taco red sauce.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
