Called to ask about their safety measures with a manager. I would not recommend this place to a Celiac for these reasons:

1. Pizzas and other foods are prepped on shared spaces, though the raw GF dough is placed on parchment as a divider both in prep and in bake.

2. Prep utensils are cleaned but not dedicated and cross contamination cannot be guaranteed or even confidently stated.

3. Ovens used are CONVECTION, and therefore utilize fans. Ovens are shared by both GF and gluten pizzas. Pizzas are prepped using raw wet dough without any dry flour, but as the pizzas are cooked and dried out, keep in mind that that dough will become crusty and particulates will separate and cross contaminate.

4. Oven utensils used to rotate and pull finished pizzas are common, nothing dedicated for the GF items to prevent contamination if something slips.

Staff was knowledgeable, and told us to request allergy precautions when ordering. They had multiple GF options. We ordered the GF garlic cheesy bread to start and it was good, but could have used more garlic. The GF pizza crust is made in a separate dedicated facility and baked on parchment. They used a clean knife to cut it. It was amazingly tasty! We also had a regular gluten pizza on the table and there was very little difference in taste or texture. My daughter did not get sick. We all enjoyed it and we will definitely be back. They told me we can order a box of 4 crusts from them for $20.

I tried the gluten free pepperoni pizza and the gluten free garlic cheesy bread and the gluten free chicken tenders. Everything was so delicious! It was the best gluten free pizza I have had in the states. Reminded me of gluten free pizza I had in Italy.

Super yummy! Was able to get gluten free garlic honey cheese bread as an appetizer. Then a delicious gluten free pizza with all the toppings. I can’t believe how good the honey was with the food. Staff was Great.

The staff was very knowledgeable & friendly. Had many gluten free options including buns. The pizza crust is exceptionally good! I've ate there today & once a year ago (visiting from Salt Lake City). I did not get sick either time! Win win!

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

They have been approved by the Celiac Sprue Association and have received special training. I didn’t even know this was a thing! So I was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was great! I also had the stuffed mushrooms. Soooo good. All items that are NOT gf are marked on the menu as unsafe, so there are actually many items that we can have. It was such a wonderful place to eat. I look forward to my next visit.
