You know how jazzed this Western kid is to have a large soda with chips and salsa?! Ask for the GF menu and specific GF chips right when you get in. I recently ordered the Quesabirria Tacos and it is cheesy goodness.

Separate menu. Good options. Waitress asked if I also wanted GF chips too, which was an awesome surprise. Great experience.

They were knowledgeable about Cross Contamination. They told me to stay away from the chips because even though they didn’t have gluten they were cooked in a shared fryer. They did bring out safe chips for me after I mentioned I had celiac disease. A lot of their procedures are mentioned on the menu.

Very celiac conscious and delicious! No fake cheese or little portions. I actually eat directly from the side menu ordering corn tortillas, side of Mexican rice, side of black beans, and cheese and it's a full meal! Plus... great service. I would have put down 4.5 were it available because the GF tortilla chips are not so great.

They have a separate gluten free menu that includes burritos and separate tortilla chips.

The waitress dropped off chips, shouted something at us and walked away; my husband thought that meant they were gluten free, so I tried some only for her to deliver gluten free chips right after. I did get a reaction.

Also, one of the kitchen guys tried to deliver us the wrong food. The waitress warned me if we come back again to only accept my food if it comes in the yellow ceramic dishes because that's what the kitchen uses for gluten free.

Food was great, you just have to keep a close eye to make sure you're getting the right stuff, and don't try anything before you've clarified with someone that it's actually gluten free if you need to.

We made it clear we were gf and a young waiter gave us wheat chips and said they were gf. It wasn't until our actual waiter came to our table that he corrected this mistake. Unfortunately for us we had already eaten the chips. Their gf menu is extensive so it's a shame not all their staff is informed.

a Mexican restaurant with GF food that tastes good is harder to find than Bigfoot. So I was super pleased with the menu and quality. Not in love with the GF chips they give you but the chimichanga is amazing.

The servers were very accommodating. Once they knew I had a corn and gluten allergy they helped customize a plate with everything I could eat. The decor does not demonstrate how good the food is. So don't judge a book by its cover and give this place a chance.

I was in Denver a couple weeks ago. I ate at Blue Bonnet twice.

Every time I visit Denver, I try to come here. They have a gluten free menu. I can eat here with confidence. They give you generous servings and bottomless chips and salsa. They stock GF chips and bring you your own salsa.

I grew up in Denver and this is what I remember Mexican food to be. It's hard to find any where else. Even my sister who has moved from Denver as well, commented on how delicious this place was. she said "Now this is Mexican Food". Apparently she can't find the real deal where she lives either.

Always a good choice even if you're not gluten-free. Not only do they have a separate gf menu, they have a separate fryer so there's no gluten floating around in there. Cheap and fast too!
