They are not knowledgeable about celiac. There is no dedicated fryer, and there is a large chance of getting cross contamination. I used to think it was ok to eat here before I really experienced symptoms. Everytime I have been in the last couple of years, and reassured by a manager that my meal was gluten free, I've gotten sick.

Ate here twice on a business trip. They are aware of celiacs. They have dedicated fryers for their fries. They also can make burgers with GF flat bread, which I found actually nice. They don't guarantee there is no cross-contamination, but they do try to take precautions and I did not get sick.

First, it's very expensive for small portions. When we arrived, the waitress said, "All fryers are gluten free." Ordered something with onion rings on it and when I asked what they were breaded with, she says, "Oh yeah they have gluten, all onion rings have gluten in them." She was pretty rude about it and I asked her why she said the fryers were all gluten free and she said that's not what she meant. Like wth? Anyway, not coming back here.

Delicious fries from dedicated fryer and campfire marshmallow ice cream in a cup. They told me if you mention celiac/food allergy, they scoop the ice cream from the barrel, not the containers that most people are served out of, to prevent cross contamination. Felt great after.

They have GF flat bread to put burgers on and the fries are made in a dedicated frier. Very good food. Burgers are $12-15 range plus $2 upgrade for GF. Also have some GF drinks

Advertised to me as a gluten free/gluten friendly location to visit while in Denver. Both the chef and kitchen manager report nothing to be safe for real sensitivities, the 'gluten free' label was made for people interested in a diet, not for those with rela health needs. They reported no dedicated space recommendedin the kitchen and advised a salad or another restaurant. Server very nice, not knowledgeable about allergies.

This review is long overdue, but I went to look at this place again to try it maybe a year later and I'm glad I looked because it seems like others are having issues. I had an awful experience. Poorly trained staff, gave me very mixed options, some said I could have any sauce, some said I could only have ketchup. Did not feel safe eating here, AT ALL. Fries came out with barbeque sauce, after they told me it wasn't gf. Didn't seem like they took gf seriously at all.

Food was delicious. Unfortunately, I got glutened. I was assured that fries used separate fryers and burgers were gluten free, as were all sauces. I ordered with instruction from the waiter, and I saw they marked “gluten allergy” on my ticket. And still, I am sick. Beware of cross-contamination in this kitchen.

I was drawn to try this place since it was near my hotel, and I could actually have fries! But when we were seated, my waitress informed me that they don’t have dedicated fryers and they weren’t recommended for celiacs bc of a high likelihood of cross contamination. I decided to Nima rest a fry anyway since so many raves about them, and gluten was found! I ordered the fly fisher sandwich on a gf wrap, though, and it was great. I did have to ask for them to cook it on a piece of aluminum foil bc they cook the burger and warm the pita in the grill where everything else is cooked and could have cc, but they were very accommodating. The manager came out and assured me they were being very careful, changed gloves, etc, and Nima approved! Here I am a day lady, feeling great. So I know it was definitely gf! And it was yummy!

Enjoyed a great lunch while in Denver for a conference. Had a slider on GF flatbread (like a pita), GF fries, Brussels sprouts, chips and a variety of dips. All was delicious!

Came here with a really big group for a work event. We'd informed them when we made the reservation that we have a few people with gluten allergies, and the staff was great about making sure we got what we needed and informing us if they brought out a shared appetizer that we should avoid. I loved having a burger (gf bun) and fries.

The service was great! I was able to have fries! They offered to make my burger with a lettuce wrap or the gluten free flat bread. I choose the flat bread it wasn't bad. I came back recently and they said it got to busy for them to have a seperate fryer. The food was still great.

Had chili cheese fries, delicious! unfortunately when my burger came out, had regular bun. I asked right away if it was gluten free (already knowing it wasn't because it looked the same like my friends burger and they have GF FLATBREAD, not buns. The flatbread is delicious. They immediately took it back and said they would recook the entire burger. So I got the burger, but after others were done eating 4 stars for wasting time, they comped my burger, food is good and not too many complaints because they tried! My friends loved their burger. Be specific up front that you have celiac, don't just request gf option.

Good food. I’m not a burger person so I had chicken breast instead of a burger (which is a normal substitution on the menu). Dedicated fryer for fries. They were okay but not the best fries I ever had. They serve a gf flatbread, but since I decided to chow down on fries I didn’t end up eating much of the flatbread.

just ate there. knowledgeable staff. I'm celiac and gluten free. I got a little glutened with a brain fog from the fries, but I'm not sure if they made those in the right fryer. it was busy and maybe too busy to assure gluten and dairy free food. I might try it again if I'm in a pinch but since I'm not feeling well after eating there, I will probably steer clear.

Excellent burgers and celiac friendly. I eat fries so rarely, due to cross contamination concerns, but 5280 has a dedicated frier... So no worries! Crispy brussel sprouts are super tasty.

Really good burgers! The flatbread was good too, not your usual burger bun but I didn't feel second classed at all. So nice to have really good fries and a good atmosphere too. Go here if you're in town! Plus, alcoholic milkshakes and homemade ice cream in their store next door... we may need to come back for those...

My first visit was awesome! I had a chicken burger and it was great! Loved the GF bread. My second trip was less awesome. The chicken burger didn't have the same WOW factor. Good place for GF burgers and fries.

We ordered the street tacos which were pretty good. We also ordered the "perfect burger". I did not care for it. Its served on cardboard thin flat "bread" and there is a $4 yo charge for it!!!!! It was horrible, didn't even eat. However, the tacos or the bite of burger did not make us sick.

Safe burger and fries back in March 2016 -- dedicated fryer and knowledge of cross-contamination. Their buns aren't safe for me (I forget whether because of egg, dairy, or both), but the burger was good, as were the safe toppings.
