Federal is an absolute gem for anyone who eats gluten free. They are super knowledgeable, take all of the necessary precautions, and the food is amazing. I recommend Federal 100%!

Had a delightful dinner here and enjoyed talking to the owner. Not only do they have dedicated fryers, but use special dishes to show an order is gluten free. Red baskets or round dishes=gluten free, black baskets and square dishes are non gluten free. The burgers and nachos were very good and the staff was very accommodating. We will go back soon.

Pretty much everything can be made gluten free! They are very careful about cross contamination in the kitchen - the girl on the phone told me the owners have celiac also. Separate fryer. The fries were delicious but I have to say I was rather disappointed in the burger. It was pretty sub-par. My boyfriend thought his burger was good though. However, the meal filled me up and I didn't have any gluten reaction.

Both of the owners also have celiac and they go above and beyond to ensure food safety and cross contamination.

Great food!! Lots of gluten free options. Knowledgeable staff!

Highly recommend!! Very celiac safe!! We stopped there on our cross country road trip, loved it so much and felt safe eating there that we stopped in again on our way home. Can not say enough good things about this place. Wish we lived closer.

Truly great place. They not only took gf safety very seriously, but the food was not just great for being GF, but great in general.

The food was really great and as safe as I've ever seen. We were just passing though and shared our regret that we would not be able to come back regularly.

As soon as I mentioned celiac disease I received the most thorough explanation on what they do to prevent CC that I’ve ever heard. Both the owners have celiac. There’s a dedicated tap for gluten free beer, separate plates for gluten free items and separate prep areas. Great burger and great to have beer.

This place is great! First time here and I was made to feel completely safe and sound. I had the Nachos + the Fish with a small salad and it was so good! We are visiting from Iowa and our server just so happened to be from Iowa as well! It was an all around pleasant experience and I didn't have any anxiety eating there!

I ate and drank my way through a Broncos game here. The owner and staff are very attentive to dietary needs and very aware of what’s safe for Celiacs to eat. The owner and a couple bartenders we spoke to knew exactly how food was prepared and what would be safe for me. The hot wings and sweet potato fries were fantastic. I feel very safe here and will definitely be going back.

Great place, staff is very knowledgeable. The only items they can’t adjust to be GF are the onion rings and the soft pretzel. They have a separate fryer for GF. My celiac daughter enjoyed the sweet potato fries and fried artichokes, as well as the Asian fish tacos.

This place was so good! Almost everything on their menu can be made GF and they have a huge selection of GF beers and drinks. The absolute highlight is that after telling our waiter I had celiac, the manager came by to further explain the steps they take to ensure no CC, that the owners are celiac and they take it very seriously, and finally ask if you have any additional questions that they can answer so you feel safe eating there!

Food was delicious- especially the fries!

AMAZING food, an absolute must if you’re in Denver! The service was amazing and someone came and talked to me right away about the gluten free options and assured me that they were avoiding cross contamination.

Owners are both celiac so they have dedicated fryers, stovetop, and even plates - however they are not a dedicated (solely) GF facility so they do warn about that, however I’ve never had an issue and I LOVE the food here. They even have a dedicated hard seltzer and gf beer on tap!! Hoses have never been used for a non-gf drinks. Staff is also super friendly and the place is so nice on the inside! Don’t let the outside fool ya!! Feel so lucky to live a few blocks away from this hidden gem.

We gave them a go based on the reviews here and we were not disappointed! The server was super friendly and explained that they have dedicated fryers, work areas and dishes. Gluten free dishes are served on oval or round dishes, while non gluten free food is served on or in square dishes. They were so accommodating that the server double checked to make sure the pickles didn't have artificial dye in them. I eat gluten while the hubby doesn't and he is very sensitive to gluten and had no reaction at all. He ate potatoes skins, beer batter fish and fries. He enjoyed it so much we went again and he got a burger and fries. Highly recommended

Outstanding!!! The most celiac aware restraunt I've ever been to. Owner are gluten free and super focused on safety and quality. Was greeted enthusiasticly at the door and the whole experience was 5 stars. They have biscuits and gravy, dedicated flat top and dryer. Great selection. Looks like a bar from the outside, feels like a homey diner inside. My new favorite place in Denver.

This place is spectacular. When I asked about gluten free options, the server told me that everything (besides the onion rings and pretzel bites) is naturally gluten free or can be made gluten free. The owners have Celiac and have taken all necessary precautions with separate spaces, fryer, etc. They also had gluten free beer and cider on their happy hour menu!

This place is amazing. As soon as I asked about a gluten free menu, the host sat down with me and went through all of my options (which is EVERYTHING but the onion rings and pretzels) as well as all of their precautions to avoid CC- separate prep area, fryer, draft lines, and even plates. The food was delicious and hearty. The owners both have Celiac and their daughter has a peanut allergy so they any dietary restriction VERY seriously.
