Next Door did a fantastic double handling celiac disease and preventing cross contamination. They have a separate fryer, sanitize and take all precautions when preparing your food. Almost all items can be made GF. They also make the most amazing chocolate chip cookies!
Some of the best gluten free options I’ve seen out there since finding out I had celiac 10 years ago! Fried calamari used to be my favorite and I could never have it, but Next Door offers the only gluten free calamari I’ve ever come across and it’s fantastic! No gluten free pasta, but their burgers and soup are both incredible too! Celiac makes it hard to have fun finding new restaurants sometimes, but Next Door changed that for me and offers a really fun experience of trying new gluten free items you usually can’t find anywhere else!
Service was excellent. Server was knowledgeable and found a manager to double check on the safety of the chips. They were kind and cautious. Large gluten sensitive menu and fantastic bread with local cider available, even though it's a chain. Cuban sandwich was delicious!
We told the server I was celiac and my daughter is gluten intolerant. He seemed very educated. Then our daughter was brought a regular grilled cheese. They corrected it. Then brought a different desert than we ordered. Supposedly gluten free. But, at this point I was nervous and couldn’t relax.
I am Celiac and I had the 50/50 burger mushroom had a gf bun served with potato chips and a small salad. Delicious! Asked me if it was allergy I told him celiac and he told the chef.
Really good celiac awareness - I’ve eaten here 3 times in the last year without issue. Waitstaff is knowledgeable about cross contamination. Fryer is not dedicated GF so many of the appetizers are out if you have Celiac but good sandwiches and salads that can be made GF
Went there for lunch with our daughters (2 have celiac). Their menu clearly states what can be prepared GF. The server explained how our GF meals would be prepared vs the gluten containing ones. The burgers were amazing! We also got GF ice cream sandwiches, which were ice cream between two soft, chewy, delicious GF chocolate chip cookies. Our girls experienced no cross contamination and we all had a great meal. We'd definitely go back.
Update: Within the last month a menu item was added that makes the fryers unsafe for Celiacs. Rating changed from five to three stars and hoping to have a reason to change it back. We plan to come back. Farm to table local sourcing approach with games available for kids and adult to play while waiting for food.
There was a wide assortment of Gluten Free options that all actually sounded good and were still healthy. They couldn’t guarantee gluten free fries from the frier but they had plenty of other choices. The food had great flavor and did not make either of my daughter and I sick. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about Gluten Free options. When he asked if we were sharing food, the cooks split our burger and meal completely. Great place, very nice environment! Would recommend.
There are many GF options. I had the chicken sandwich which was excellent! I’ll definitely go back!!
Shared frier. Terrible service.
Many gluten free options on menu, including appetizers. They were celiac knowledgeable, and the chef even came out to our table to let me know specific preparation variances he would make with mine to ensure celiac-safe. Delicious food, we will go back.
Very knowledgeable and basically everything is gluten free or can be made gluten free.
THEY HAVE GLUTEN FREE FRIED ITEMS! SOOO GOOD AND KNOWLEDGEABLE!!! SO HAPPY!!!
Awesome! Barb, our server talked to me about how my son’s meal would be prepared since he has celiac disease. Tons of GF options-even things that usually aren’t-like chicken fingers. All of my kids loved this place, which is rare. They have board games and pop comes in glass bottles, which they thought was awesome. Prices are not astronomical, but this was definitely considered a treat for us. We will be back!
amazing, gluten free items not typically found elsewhere. all fried items were gluten free!!!! calamari was great as was crispy gulf shrimp.
The server was very knowledgeable about gluten and corrected himself when he referred to it as an allergy. Not only did he list my safer options, he explained why they were safer options. Menu is marked GF and GFO. Vegan options available too.
Knowledge staff, many gluten free options, good food
They do a great job with food allergies and are very knowledgeable. They also offer food that isn’t normally “gluten free,” which is always special for us. They have a spicy, crispy shrimp bowl that is awesome.
Not entirely sure why there are so few reviews for this restaurant but if you are in the Denver area DEFINITELY make a stop at Next Door Eatery. As a gluten free vegan I struggle to find quality restaurants. Not only was this food DELICIOUS, it was safe to eat, easily able to be modified, and the wait staff is incredible with allergens. As an added benefit, a member of their kitchen staff has celiacs so she's incredibly careful and thorough. 5 stars across the board!
The staff was amazing. I mentioned I was celiac and, even on an extremely busy night, the chef came out to talk to me about a very minor concern on one ingredient he wasn't sure about. The fryer does have gluten ingredients on Tuesday and Friday for their specials, but they are cleaned thoroughly at the end of every day. I'm not sure I have ever felt more welcomed and respected at a restaurant. And the food was FANTASTIC.
