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.

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
