I was excited to go to the Stapleton (Denver, CO.) location for the second time. First time I had been, I had been informed that this new location had dedicated gluten free fryers. AWESOME! On that first trip, I had FRIED CHICKEN!!!It was disappointing, kinda bland, but, still, I walked away happy, didn’t get sick and I’ve been jazzed to go back again soon. Finally made it back today. I was more than disappointed when I learned from the server during my “I have Celiac disease, can you feed me safely?” conversation, that they no longer have dedicated gluten free fryers. I was so bummed, but I was with my family and didn’t want to just not order, so I ordered the Knockoff burger with a gluten free bun and a side if beans, since I couldn’t have the fries. Luckily I had my trusty Nima tester with me. I Tested the bun, burger and the side of beans. The three minutes it took to test my meal felt like forever, but eventually the test finished. It was positive for gluten. I had the server take it away and asked to have the meal removed from the bill. She was very apologetic and said we wouldn’t be charged. A few minutes later the manager approached and asked about what was wrong with the meal I sent back. I explained the situation and he also was very apologetic. He asked for a chance to make me something else, but by then my family was almost done eating and we had plans, so no time to let them try again. The manager then offered me a gift certificate to come back and try again later. If it weren’t for my Nima, I would have said no thanks, I I have a one strike rule when it comes to gluten exposure at a restaurant, but with my Nima I can always verify the safety of my food. Sorry didn’t mean for this to turn into a Nima review, but it really makes me feel so safe and empowered! Anyway, I’ll post an update when I go back and use that gift cert.

Went because of the mirage promise of gluten free fried chicken only to hear the hated words "oh I'm sorry it's gluten FRIENDLY if you have real allergies let me recommend ____". 😢😢😢 even advertise gluten free chocolate cake that looked amazing in the case next to their "regular carrot cake".

Hard to hate when the staff is so passionate & nice, but DO NOT promote this as gluten free when all of the precautions aren't being taken.

I ordered the chicken soup and it was so salty no one at the table could eat it. Then I ordered the tacos and there was so much sauce you couldn’t taste the taco. It’s bar food, yes, but not good bar food. That said, I had those and French fries and didn’t get sick at all.

Great place, great for families and large groups. They have a ton of gluten free options on their menu, marked either with GF or GFA. I didn't ask if they have a gluten free prep area or dedicated fryers but their menu says that they can't 100% guarantee there isn't cross contamination but they try their best.

Server very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Dedicated GF fryer for fries- tested parmesan fries with Nima and did not get sick. I went at 3pm- not a busy time for the kitchen.
