A Few Tried-And-True Gluten-Free Restaurants
I know that my focus is aimed on gluten-free body care products, but many people ask me for food recommendations…so from time to time, I have to put in a good find!
For those of you that are gluten-free and live in the Denver area how lucky are you? VERY! I travel quite a bit and I have to say that the Denver area abounds with Gluten-Free Options.
For those of you that are not from this area, I will include some safe gluten-free chain restaurants.
As always, I am open to suggestions to share with others, so please add a restaurant anytime!
The Bistro at Marshdale in the Evergreen, CO area is ridiculously delicious! It gets 5 out of 4 stars. Yes, 5 out of 4 stars. I have never had a mediocre meal there. For sure, they know gluten-free. They know the difference between gluten intolerence and celiac disease. They have delicious gluten-free bread and they will pour your dipping oil out of a separate, gluten-free oil container (meaning; no contaminates got into the oil.) You are safe here. Beyond being safe, I can not say enough about the menu. Diverse and yummy are two words for now. Also, dear Chef Brian; I am begging you to put the Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Mousse on the desert menu full-time! Please?! Also, they have a lot of specials, like March Madness that cost about $36.00 and you got to eat three courses for that price. I did; twice!
Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill Chain, also found in Denver, CO area. Fresh, inexpensive, delicious, good for you, and you guessed it: gluten-free. It is considered to be fast food and a chain. They have little GF labels on their food and the staff seems well-educated on gluten-free. They serve falafel, hummus, shwarma etc. The falafel is delicious, not dried out and nasty like some that I have tried in the freezer section. I pray regularly that you open a restaurant near me! Thanks!
Tokyo Joe’s Chain, also found in Denver, CO area. Fresh, inexpensive, delicious, good for you and many gluten-free options. Fast Food, Japanese fare, with gluten-free soy sauce (tamari), gluten-free teriaki, gluten-free curry sauce, the list goes on and on and on and on for gluten-free options. The staff is well-educated on gluten-free and they always have a friendly, helpful attitude. I love you Tokyo Joes!
Here is a picture of the Alfresco dining at Tokyo Joe’s; I was so excited to eat, I ate the food before it dawned on me to take a picture!
Blue Sky Cafe Denver, CO. I will let a few menu items sell this place: gluten-free pancakes made of corn or sweet potatoes, gluten-free crepes, gluten-free english muffins and other gluten-free bread items, gluten-free soups, sauces, dressings! You can almost eat anything on their menu without gluten!!! This is one of my top go-to breakfast place. Comfort food. Delicious. Not expensive, but not inexpensive either.
Wild-Flower Cafe, Evergreen, CO. Lunch or Breakfast? Either. They understand gluten-free, and the staff adds character to your meal, you will want to go there just for their company! But, they have gluten-free french fries on Thursday, the best turkey reuben ever, of course sans gluten, and they have gluten-free bread, waffles and other breakfast fare that is gluten-free. Inexpensive and delicious. Fun staff.
Mccormick and Schmick’s A delicious nationwide chain. It can be pricey, but when I travel, this is a reliable gluten-free chain. They may not have gluten-free bread for you, but they will keep the gluten out of your food. I have never had a bad meal here! Reliably delicious would sum this up!
Sullivan’s Steakhouse A reliable (no gluten in your food) good nationwide chain. Also, nationwide, also a bit pricey, but good food. Same as above, no gluten-free bread for you, but the staff reliably understands gluten-free food.
In-N-Out Burger Chain…various locations throughout the nation. As always, use caution, state your gluten-free issue when ordering. After reading, calling the company and actually eating at In-N-Out Burger repeatedly, I believe this chain to be safe for celiac’s disease sufferer’s. Currently, the special sauce is said to be gluten-free, if you are concerned, skip it. The french fries are just fresh-cut potatoes, fried in their own fryer that is used for nothing else. You order your burger “protein style” and it comes wrapped in lettuce, they do a nice job with it. The only gluten in the restaurant are the buns. So, to be extra, extra sure, ask for a clean spatula to be used, and ask for the sauce in a to-go packet. I have never gotten sick here.
