Restaurants In Colorado Springs

I am so new to this, and really hate to make a scene at any restaurant. So, actually asking for the gluten free menu has been a stretch for me. I have been pleasantly surprised in Colorado Springs. Biaggi's, Champps, and Texas Roadhouse were more than happy to accomodate me with a menu and the waiter staff and managers took a couple of minutes to expain the menu and specifically what I needed to tell the wait staff (like no seasoning). They were happy to help me, and I will go back. The best was the menu from Champps. On the last page it talked about 2.3 million people having celiacs, and that those people become loyal customers of restaurants that do their best to not make them sick. It said it would be nice to gain those 2.3 million peoples' trust and business by delivering a meal that was both safe and delicious! I know that in my area Carraba's, Outback, Chili's and On the Border also have special menus. We also have an Italian Market that makes gluten free pasta. I haven't tried it yet, but I have heard it is good.

I also live in Colorado Springs, sounds like your finding some good choices. I heard that Mimi's Cafe is also gluten free friendly but haven't gone there yet. Personally I prefer the fine dining restaurants because the chef's make all food in house and proudly accomodate you. So if you feel like endulging here are my favorites.

Walters

Margarita at Pine Creek

Plate World Cuisine

Old Colorado City

La Petite Mason

Manitou Springs

Craftwood Inn (my favorite!)

Also if you haven't found them yet. Out of the Bread Box in old colorado city is a gluten free bakery that makes the best breads and cookies! Good luck

Just got back from Colorado Springs this weekend. I had a wonderful dinner at the Briarhurst in Manitou Springs. Chef Peoples is amazing. I had a wonderful salmon with a creamy sauce and sorbet for dessert. Great place!

I have been diagnosed with high gluten intolerance for 3 years although some choices are getting better these past few years there's still not much in the exciting dining categories. I have been thrilled to find a new restaurant that is incredible, is affordable gourmet and better than a piece of protein on a plate with veggies. it's in Manitou Springs called Coquette Creperie and I was able to order some crazy good and hearty crepes which I never thought I'd have again. The whole experience was like going to Paris. I had read about them in a local paper and the menu choices are amazing... check them out. worth the visit

We had heard good things about Famous Dave's BBQ in northern Colorado Springs, but had no idea if they could accommodate my new gluten free diet. When we asked the wait staff, they seemed eager to please. But the real bonus was when Mike, the General Manager, came to our table with the book of ingredients, and went over it with us. Each entry included a postscript of allergens that the food contains. Most were soy, but a few were wheat. He recommended a steamed chicken, potato salad and broccoli, all of which were delicious. The cooperation and enthusiasm of the whole team is what will take us back to Famous Dave's.
