This is a restaurant I will definitely frequent when I am in Estes Park! I love tortas and thought my days of enjoying these delicious sandwiches were gone, but not here! They have a gluten free torta on delicious bread (that I found out is made in Loveland, CO but I didn't get the name of the bakery). I was in heaven. The gluten free menu shows you which items are strictly gluten free and which items have a risk of contamination (due to a shared fryer), and they will offer special gluten free sides for your meal. The corn salsa was delicious!
I ordered 3 gluten-free pies for last Thanksgiving, apple, pecan, and chocolate. I had lots of questions when I ordered, the gentleman at the counter was very helpful. The pies were excellent, very tasty! Couldn’t even tell that they were gluten-free. My husband picked up the pies, it was the day before Thanksgiving, and they were super busy. The pies were ready to go. This was our first experience with Papa Ganache, and it was great! We’ll be back.
I went multiple times to get gf French fries. I asked each time and was told it was a dedicated fryer. I kept getting sick but my symptoms as a celiac take almost a week to present themselves. the last time I went I asked about gluten free sides and they said if I was sensitive, NOT to get the fries because they fry the chicken in there. stopped going there, stopped getting sick.
Excellent gf and vegan choices. Food is fantastic. Dedicated fliers and cook with olive oil. Very large portions. Found this on gf website and the description does not do it justice staff and chef very knowledgable
I need to eat GF and no dairy or egg or yeast but can eat fish. They had Phad Thai that's very unique tasting, it has white fish and I had the egg or preserved radish fermented). There aren't a lot of options for me but the waiter was extremely knowledgeable when I mentioned Celiac. He said he would tell the chef and they would be sure of no cross contamination and its prepared in a separate area. It was tasty. I'm a visitor but don't think I'll be back during this trip with such limited options for me. It was Friday night we made a reservation for 8:30 pm and it was extremely noisy.
I was in Chicago on a business trip, I ate there for breakfast one day, and it was so good I literally considered staying in Chicago an extra day just so I could have another sandwich. Everyone was super nice and very friendly, and the bread is unbeatable. They have worked with a local bakery to create A special bread for their sandwiches.
I do not think this restaurant truly understands gluten free. I became violently ill after eating their meal this evening. After reading the review that talked about their French Fries not being gluten free due to possible cross contamination it made me pay attention. While filling my glass at the soda fountain I watched a staff member put ribs into a deep fry basket and then pull out a French Fry that was left over and I can only now assume it was also cooked in the same oil. I also witnessed them carry biscuits with tongs over our food on the counter. When the meal was brought out I asked the server, who happened to be that same person who pulled the French Fry from the basket about their fries not being gluten free and what oil they are being cooked in. She assured me they were not cooked in the same oil. 1:30 in the morning and I am sick as a dog, so what I witnessed and what I was told was two different things. Celiac Disease is VERY REAL, and until restaurant owners, managers and their stuff FULLY UNDERSTAND this and stop treating it like like 'diets of choice' that will have no negative effects people will continue to get sick and in turn not dine there. If you have Celiac Disease I would use EXTREME CAUTION dinning at this restaurant, because what they say and do are apparently two different things.
I just ordered from here for the first time. I ordered the shrimp mushu and the land and sea stew (it will last me a while!) and it was DELICIOUS. Both dishes were amazing but I especially loved the land and sea stew - super fresh seafood with delicious broth, yummy noodles, and veggies. The shrimp mushu was also fantastic. Also, very generous portions!
When I found out I was a celiac, I was so sad because I thought I would never be able to eat Chinese food again. Then I found out about this place. Now that I've tried it and confirmed that it is indeed delicious, I'm so excited. They even offer tips on their menu to avoid cross contamination! Highest recommendation! :)
They have a decent size menu for gluten free individuals. My son loves the buns! It's refreshing to be able to go out and get burgers for the family without having to worry. The cook staff is very well trained on how to handle for celiac individuals and is very accommodating. My son also loves the fries!!!!
while they don't have a dedicated kitchen they still take proper steps to ensure that there is the least amount of cross contamination as possible. Staff was trained well in handling of food and always use gloves and dedicated utensils when making a gluten free pizza. For my busy family this is an amazing option for a quick dinner when we've had a long day.
