I ate here last Spring. Never had a problem at the Idaho Springs Beau Jo's, or the now closed one on CO Blvd. Ordered a gluten free pizza, told our server I was "allergic"- ( celiac really). The "gluten free" pizza was delicious, but before I even finished, I was plagued with huge gas and abd. cramps. I immediately told the Mgr. that something went wrong in the kitchen with likely cross contamination. He apologized, and didn't charge for the pizza. Of course money is no compensation for a night of agony, and then other "bad stuff" that lasted for a couple days. It's too bad, because I loved the other Beau Jo's, but likely will not return here. Kitchen staff training is so important!

I had the Italian Turkey sandwich gluten free. I told the waitress before hand that I needed it strictly gluten free with no cross contamination and that I would be testing it with my Nima. She was great and said that if the test found gluten she would work with the manager to find a solution. The sandwich came back and I tested samples every portion, especially scrapings off the bottom where cross contamination frequently happens. Nima found no gluten and I did not get sick from eating the sandwich. A couple of notes: 1. The restaurant was not busy at the time I ordered. 2. I have had Nima test positive for gluten on the same sandwich at a different Beau Jo's that was very busy at the time. Preparation seems to be key here. However, on another trip I ordered the GF cheese bread appetizer after carefully explaining to the server and Nima tested it positive for gluten. You are definitely taking a chance eating here.

They offer gluten free items, and although they were generous with the toppings on the vegetarian combo pizza, it lacked flavor. The cranberry walnut salad was good, but not good enough to get me back to the restaurant.

Always celiac friendly and endorsed by the celiac association! We have visited every location as native Coloradans and every time the meat sausage combo is fantastic as well as the gf garlic cheesy bread and the cheese stuffed mushrooms! Not mushy great service and glad to have options since 14 years ago getting a pizza at a restaurant was a dream and not a reality. First world problems solved beautifully!

I've eaten here several times. The service was good and friendly, and I thought the pizza was really good too, great toppings. They also have gluten-free Wednesday where they offer a free salad to gluten-free orders. I like the friendliness and dedication they show.

They used to have a good GF crust but changed it within the last year and now it sucks - mushy, etc. Also, my husband got takeout pizza for us from the new Arvada place, specifically requesting GF, and they screwed up our order, giving me pizza that was NOT GF!!! I had already taken a few bites when I got suspicious and had my husband call them to make sure the pizza was GF. Turns out it wasn't!!!! I had to force myself to throw up what I'd already eaten. Gross but it was better to just force myself to throw up right away to avoid the 24 hour period of nonstop vomiting that follows accidental ingestion of gluten for me, especially since I was pregnant!!! The manager told my husband he would refund our money and talk to the staff, and promised to call us back, but he never did. I will never go back to this place. There are better GF pizza crusts elsewhere such as Woody's Wood-Fired Pizza on Sheridan.

Being a beau jo's thick crust lover before diagnosis I couldn't wait to try their GF crust...it sucked!!! Toppings were great, staff friendly & manager personally supervised everything & I could see cross contamination steps being taken through window...still ended up with full week long agony. Even my dogs just licked toppings off & left crust. $20 tiny 10in pizza not worth it :(

Bye my beloved ski treat until owners figure out cross contamination issues & create own THICK GF crust

Stopped here on our way from white water rafting. Eating out is not always fun when I have food allergies. We had a part of 8 people and was sat in 20 minutes on a Saturday night. I was so happy to know they had a ton of gluten free, Dairy free and lots of non tomato pizza sauces. They even cook the gluten free pizza on a separate pan. The pizza was amazing. I had gluten free crust, garlic olive oil sauce, dairy free cheese, pepperoni and mushrooms. It took me 3 dats to finish the pizza. I only eat about 2 slices in a sitting. I’m guessing it’s a medium pizza. They have happy hour daily too. They also have gluten free cake. I did not get sick.

I grew up eating Beu Jo's pizza and absolutely love their food. Now GF (Either celiac or highly sensitive, awaiting results), not so much. I had their Pesto Chicken pizza with the cauliflower crust and even notified the waitress of my situation, but still had a reaction and did not digest the food.

NOT celiac friendly. I ordered the italian turkey sandwich gluten free and told the waitress that I needed to be strictly gluten free. She was very nice and seemed knowledgeable and said they would change their gloves and use a clean knife and prepare it on clean area with parchment paper. Unfortunately when I got the sandwich and tested a sample of each ingredient and bread with my Nima Sensor, it found gluten. The waitress was very sorry and explained the this is a very busy Buea Jo's and depending on the staff in the kitchen it can be hard to guarantee a gluten free meal. They did not charge for my sandwich. I gave 2 stars for the friendly waitress but I would not recommend a celiac eat here.

Ate here last night - the ~25min wait was worth it. My husband & I had the GF garlic bread, stuffed mushrooms, and then split the GF pesto chicken pizza. The garlic bread is an entire sub cut in half - huge portion!The GF food is prepared separately and comes out MUCH FASTER than the regular pies. We had our food & finished eating within 35mins and the surrounding tables didn't have their pizzas yet. GF for the win! And no reactions what-so-ever!

Hands down the best gluten free pizza I have eaten! I had the 'Lil Italy. From their menu & website I feel like they do a better job of any pizza joint with gluten & gf pizza to prevent cc. I only ate here because of the other Celiac reviews. I would have given 5 starts, but I feel there is still a risk of cc, but lower than most pizza places.

Beau Jo's has ramped up their celiac GF protocols. My server was knowledgeable and the menu is very specific about what is not GF. I felt safe eating here. Their pizza crust is excellent-- my partner says better than the regular wheat crust. I visited here after having a bad experience at Otto Pint and recommend this place as the only place in Ft Collins that I know of that reliably manages pizza prep and cross contamination.

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed after reading all the great reviews. As a Colorado native I have always loved Beau Jo's, even though I'm not usually one for thick crusts - dipping the crusts in honey makes the thick crust worth it, and it's really only thick around the edges...delicious! After reading all the awesome reviews, I expected to have a pizza that was at least similar to their regular pizza, but the crust was very thin and crispy and was practically dripping in oil. It tasted ok, but was certainly not the Beau Jo's experience I was hoping for. I still dipped my crusts, it just wasn't anywhere near the same. :( Maybe I ordered the wrong kind of pizza, though? I'm still giving 4 stars, because the service was awesome, they seemed knowledgeable about gluten free, and they had quite a few gluten free options on the menu (even aside from pizza). I will definitely try again, and maybe next time I'll ask if there is a thicker gluten free crust option. It was just kind of a bummer watching all my friends enjoy their thick, bready crusts with honey while I basically had an oily cracker with honey. If you go, you'll likely be happy as long as you don't have the expectation that it will truly be a Beau Jo's pizza.
