    When Poor Richards first started accommodating gluten free diets, I was told by the cashier every allergy concern went through a particular chef. I had no problem eating there at that time. At some point the staff stopped saying my order was going through the chef. Although I ordered from the gluten free menu and asked to have an allergy alert for gluten place on the order--I was sick for a week after I ate there. I didn't go for years. Recently I went back twice. I ordered the same thing twice about a week apart. The first time I had a reaction. The second time I questioned several people and found out they warmed gluten free ingredients on the grill even though I asked the cashier to place an allergy alert on the order. You have to let them know they cannot use the grill. In an instance where I spoke to more than one person from the kitchen and insisted they not heat the chicken on the grill for the salad. I did not have a reaction. I don't know if I will eat there again.

    On a trip to Colorado Springs this week, we went to Poor Richard's for dinner because these reviews said they were Celiac friendly. Sadly, my Celiac daughter got sick. The nice young man at the counter where we ordered explained how they do Celiac-prep: GF crust from Outside the Breadbox bakery prepared and baked in a dedicated GF pan, they wash their hands and change their gloves. However, I assume they used shared sauce and cheese that was cross-contaminated. The pizza tasted great, and we were happy... until the next morning. I do think they try hard and have a decent protocol, but unless there are dedicated GF toppings, there's a risk at all pizza places.

    Read the reviews and decided to give it a try. my pizza was delicious. Crust finally had a taste. The other places tasted like cardboard! They are knowledgeable about gluten and celiac. Loved the menu and place. Kids friendly, huge play area and away from the others.

    Great pizza, with crust from our local gluten-free bakery, Out of the Breadbox. Compared to other GF pizzas I've had, this is a better value and has a much better flavor and consistancy. GF bread is available for sandwiches. The staff was very willing to answer questions about ingredients and food preparation, and I felt they were knowledgable.
