I am currently visiting Fort Collins, CO and was thrilled to find a few Gluten-Free Friendly restaurants in the area. Sadly, Beau Jo's was closed for renovations. I was really looking forward to trying their gluten-free pizza. However, I found a place called Rustic Oven just up the street. They prepared me the BEST gluten-free pizza I have ever had! They also took the time to assure me it was cooked on a dedicated gluten-free pizza stone AND they didn't charge extra for a gluten free pizza like most places do. It was also a great deal larger than the regular pizzas! The servers were very knowledgeable and friendly.
My next successful outing was at a place called Spoons. All of their soups are labeled gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, etc... I had some delicious Butternut Squash and Parsnip soup that was gluten-free, DF and V! I also had a delicious salad with a delicious Maple Mustard dressing. The manager called the owner of the restaurant just to make sure the dressing was safe!
Tonight I am planning on grabbing a quick bite to eat at a coffee shop/cafe called Muggs. I emailed the owner after I heard a rumor that they had gluten free offerings. Their website said nothing about it but I was still curious. The owner himself called me this morning to discuss their gluten free options. They have gluten free bread and pizza crusts and can make almost anything on the menu gluten free for me! i am so excited and was very impressed by his knowledge and professionalism.
I also heard about a Thai restaurant, Sri Thai, that was a gluten-free menu. Unfortunately I won't have time to try it.
Thank you Fort Collins, CO for providing me with a wonderful, stress free couple of days!

Hey! My parents live up there!

I love Muggs and Beau Jo's, but I'd never heard of the Rustic Oven. I'm REALLY going to have to try that next time I'm in town. I'm always looking for new gluten-free pizza options!

I'd always been curious about Spoon's, too. Now I know :) I'm really glad you posted this, because honestly, half the time I go there I'm not sure where I can eat.

A few other places I've had good luck with are Hut Hot Mongolian Grill (they list allergens and will clean the grill specially for you, they're always really nice about it, but I'm always a bit worried about CC) and Austin's American Grill. Austin's is a touch pricier, but absolutely delicious and their staff is always top notch. I've also had good luck at JeJu (the Japanese restaurant in Old Town), but last time I was there - over a year ago- they didn't have Tamari and I had to eat my sushi dry. Either bring your own or call ahead and ask if they have it now, but their food is yummy and I've always loved how friendly their servers are.

Fort Collins actually has a lot of yummy delicious non chain restaurants. I've found many of them to be very accommodating, too. When I lived there (pre gluten free) I had a mile long list of restaurants I loooovved to eat at. I'm so glad that some of them are becoming gluten-free friendly, it makes me love visiting :)

I was in Fort Collins five years ago, shortly after I was diagnosed. I went to Sri Thai and started to explain my dietary restrictions, and my jaw nearly hit the table when the server asked, "Would you like to see our gluten-free menu?" I had a great dinner, and my business colleagues took me there for lunch the next day. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting Fort Collins.
