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.
