I like to stop here when traveling between Colorado and New Mexico. There are not many restaurants in Raton. Even though Dennys menu has GF items marked, you have to be very careful of cross contamination especially at this location. The wavy fries are marked GF. I asked the waitress if they have a dedicated fryer and she said, "no, but they're still GF!". I then educated her on cross contamination. She said, "oh, I didn't realize gluten could do that." I ended up ordering a salad with no potatoe sticks. I feel fine.

Hopefully it was just the waitress we had and the whole place isn't careless. Of course their menu let's you know what's gf. My son and I tried to order and I did the whole "I want this, but I need it gluten free" and she said it comes how it comes, if it says gf then it is. I replied I understand, but I still like to let you know so precautions are taken in the process. ie: changing gloves, cooking separately. Then my son ordered gf pancakes. When they came out they looked a little not gf. So my husband went to ask if they are and the lady said if the menu said they are then they are. She just refused to help, take us seriously or anything. So the stray dogs got pancakes that day since they were in fact not gluten free. I spent the rest of the day sick from being glutened. Should have just walked out at the beginning.

Denny’s has gluten free options, but the servers do not seem to understand anything about out how stuff is prepped at this one, but the server brought the chef out to talk to me about how things are prepared. He sad each thing like eggs, bacon and sausage, and hash browns all have their own station. The gluten free English muffins are done in the same toaster though and he offered to clean it out but I told him not to worry about it.

He cleaned all the surfaces just in case something happened and he was happy to do it. Even came out to check on me and see how things were and make sure I knew he cleaned everything before even though those surfaces shouldn’t have had anything with gluten made on them.

I waited for 18 hours before doing this review to make sure I didn’t get sick and I have not. I usually get very sick very fast even from cross contamination.

Food was delicious. I got 2 linked sausages, 2 eggs over easy and hash browns

Once I arrived I asked if they have a Gluten Free menu like I was told, they said they didn’t. They managed to compromise with a burger with no bun. Wouldn’t recommend for a meal

Let’s face it. We don’t go to Denny’s for the cuisine. Yet they are always my travel back up plan. I’ve never ever gotten sick from their naturally GF eggs, breakfast meat, hash browns or fruit. Always tell my server my allergy and apologize about needing extra care taken that my food is on a freshly cleaned section of the grill. Reliable food when on a road trip.

If you’re gluten free keep driving.

The GF english muffin that I’ve had at other Dennys and is advertised all over the menu isn’t carried here. There are still other basic options but a lot involve substituting a GF english muffin.

The place feels dirty as well

I ordered gluten free omelette, hash brown and GF English muffin. The server seemed to understand. Service was slow and 45 mins later my breakfast came with toast on top. I tried to explain I wouldn’t be able to eat it. And the server wasn’t very friendly and said they run out of GF muffins and didn’t seem to underdtand that I couldn’t eat the breakfast after the toast had been put on top. I sent it back to the kitchen and went to spk to a manager who said they take allergies very seriously as she has certain allergies herself. I knew the server would just remove the toast and give me the same breakfast. Which she did!!!! The manager had a new omelette made for me. However the place was grubby and didn’t fill me with confidence. I didn’t get charged for my omelette, but I didn’t feel that was any consolation. The server apologised and said she was very busy!
