gluten-free In Denver, Co?!?!?

Recommended Posts

I'll be visiting Denver at the end of the month to look at the university. Does anyone know of some good, gluten-free restaurants? I know there's Chipolte, PF Changs, Outback, Chili's, and healthfood stores of every type, but I wanted some othere suggestions. I've researched a bit online, but I wanted personal feedback. Thanks!

There's quite a few options here. Are you visiting DU?

One of our favorites is Noodles. They have pad thai or you can get rice noodles with just about anything you want with it. We eat at Noodles about once a week and they have always been very careful about preparing my daughter's food when you tell them gluten free (ask them to press the "allergen alert" button and tell them you are very sensitive).

If you have some money to spend, the Maggiano's in downtown Denver has been great for us as well. Call ahead and tell them you are gluten-free, then remind your server and the chef will come out and take your order. It's pricier, but you'll get good food and won't get glutened.

The Melting Pot (a fondue place) also has a gluten-free menu.

That's about all I can think of for now. Enjoy your trip!

Hey, I hope you enjoy your visit! There is a gluten-free Bakery called "Deby's" which makes good stuff, and also a pizza place "Beau Jo's" that makes gluten-free pizza! There is also a gluten-free indian food place, but it is in a suburb. :( But, they are really good! However, I recommend that you check out the Denver Chapter of the Celiac Sprue Assoc.

Click on "dietary" and then "dining out" --- they have a whole list of gluten-free places.

Happy dining!

I just moved to the Denver area and there are several great places!! I loved Maggiano's Little Italy, Beau Jo's Pizza, Deby's Gluten Free Bakery, and the places you listed that we all know (Outback, Chilis, PF Changs, etc). Hope you have a great trip!

There is a Noodles extremely close to the CU campus in Boulder. My daughter had a performance there last Saturday and we stopped in for a quick dinner (we go to Noodles quite often near our house). I was worried with college kids there they might hose it up, but the order-taker-gal was really great and she pressed the "Alergen Alert" button 29 times for us! They were very careful and my daughter didn't get glutened on the opening night of her play. Thanks goodness!

Boulder would actually likely be a very Celiac-friendly place as it is very much a health-conscious place. I don't know about the CS campus, but Denver is also rather nice and abundant eating options as well.

Well this is going to come in very handy!

My parents and sister are landing at DIA on the 5th of nov, my first house guests after going gluten-free, and as this is the first time they have been out here I get to play host to the tourists...... No I will not be wearing that tacky tourist shirt either! I'll be the normal one standing next to them!! :P

Now as long as I take my list I can eat safe !

Now anyone know what my sister is talking about when she says some candy place in denver that makes ribbon candy while you watch?
