Updated February 2022! Taco Del Mar is a Mexican fast casual chain that spans the U.S. and Canada. They have a great build-your-own Burrito, Bowl, Tacos, Taco Salad, or Enchilada model that makes it easy for special diet needs. Our dairy-free guide below breaks it down for easy ordering, and includes allergen notes, gluten-free options, and vegan choices.
Taco Del Mar Dairy-Free Menu Guide with Allergen & Vegan Options
Allergen Notes: It does not appear that Taco Del Mar uses any peanut ingredients, and the only items that contain tree nuts are their cookies (which are not dairy free). We’ve labeled items containing egg, soy, and/or wheat below. Any items not labeled with wheat are listed on their gluten-free menu.
Vegan Options: All non-meat, non-egg items listed below are vegan-friendly, except for the Enchilada Sauce. Vegans should skip the enchiladas and wet burritos. For the “protein” select menu items have Beyond Meat as an option, or you can order the Veggie/Vegan option. The latter adds guacamole (at no extra charge) in place of the protein.
