    It's such a nice experience to be able to choose almost anything from the menu! (Everything except 2 things can be made gluten free). They also have a few gluten free beers, and their sweet potato fries are excellent!

    Wow! I can't tell you how long it's been since I've had fish & chips. This place is amazing and so knowledgable about Celiac and avoiding cross-contact. Can't wait to come back to try the Vampire burger!

    My Favorite place to stop and grab gf fried treats! My son goes to college in Denver and is celiac and I love meeting him here too! It's also a great meeting place with family because they have a bunch of games you can barrow in the back!

    This is where I go when I need some yummy, not so healthy bar food. Dedicated fryer and the owner is very nice and I believe celiac. The hamburgers are very good and the homemade potato chips are a must get!!

    The owner has Celiac disease, so they are super aware. The entire menu, except onion rings and pretzels, can be made gluten free, including GF chicken fingers, wings, fried artichokes, etc. Lots of vegetarian options too. Server was very knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful. Highly recommend!

    Finally a place I can go to enjoy good bar food with out fear of cross-contamination! Both owners have celiac so it really feels like you are among friends. Almost everything on the menu can be done gluten free, it does cost a little extra but being celiac that's to be expected. FYI the nachos with pineapple jerk chicken are to die for!

    The Pork Belly Bahn Mi sandwich was life changing. Seriously, one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! It came on a GF bun and with a side of fries prepared in a separate frier. Despite the up charge for the GF bun, the prices were still very reasonable. Love this place!!!

    celiac friendly because almost everything can be made GF, but I don't know what sort of kitchen practices they have that prevent cc. I know they have separate fryers, but celiac friendly to means the servers can go above and beyond describing the precautions they take. My server seemed reluctant to do that. Based on other reviews, I am still about to eat a guacamole burger on a gluten free bun and french fries from a dedicated fryer.

    Fantastic! Like other reviewers said, owners have Celiac disease and staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. GF buns, dedicated fryer, several GF beers, and no issues with cross-contamination. Veggie burger was great and my non-GF boyfriend loved his meal too. We will be back!

    I will start by saying that I was surprised when we first walked in. It was a somewhat dark bar. Very clean, just more of a bar feel than a restaurant. Having said that, one of the best meals I've ever had. The omelets were amazing. Only the freshest of ingredients and the bacon was so good we had to order more. The burger and fries were great. Good looking salads and gluten free bread options. Kids menu. Highly recommend!

    I wasn't very hungry for dinner when I visited, but many options. Fries and salad were great. Waitress was well educated and accommodating. Spoke to the owner who is also celiac. Bread pudding for desert was a wonderful and unexpected treat!

    This place is great! I just tried it tonight for the first time. The bartender told me that the owners have Celiac, so they're very accommodating for GF patrons. They have GF buns for burgers, a dedicated fryer, and even a GF beer on tap! The food was delicious and the service was perfect. I would definitely recommend this - plus they had plenty of food that my non-GF husband loved.

    Dedicated deep fryer for gluten free. Lots of gluten free food and beer. All sauces are made in house and almost all are gluten free. Most things can be altered to be gluten free.
