UPDATE: Larkburger is out of business.
There are some really good fast-casual restaurants in Denver, Colorado that cater to the gluten-free community, and Larkburger is one of them.
Larkburger says it’s committed to using natural and clean ingredients. You won’t find any preservatives or additives in its foods. In fact, all of the restaurant’s sauces and dressings are made in-house, its fries are cooked in trans-fat-free canola oil, and it only serves all-natural Black Angus Beef.
Another way Larkburger embraces the “natural” theme is in its packaging. All containers are biodegradable and its utensils are made from potato starch and cornstarch. Nothing goes to the landfill; every part of the meal is compostable.
OK, enough about that, you want to know what’s gluten-free at Larkburger, right?
Well, here’s the kicker: EVERYTHING on the menu at Larkburger is gluten free except the buns (although you can order a gluten-free bun if you want).
Pretty sweet, right? Of course, when you visit the restaurant, double check to make sure nothing has changed because you know those pesky restaurants can change their menus on you.
If you ask me, you can skip the bun. It’s not the best tasting bun and I would have prefered to have my burger lettuce-wrapped anyway for a lighter option. I simply ordered the bun in the name of research so you can see it. But going forward, I’m ordering the lettuce-wrapped burger.
The fact that everything at Larkburger is gluten free means you can not only enjoy its delicious burgers, but also you can order any of the restaurant’s salads and fried foods.
In fact, the fryer at Larkburger is only used to cook gluten-free items, including French fries, tater tots and my personal favorite, ONION RINGS. Yes, you heard me right, onion rings!
These onion rings are addictively good. I went with my family of four and we ordered two containers of onion rings. It wasn’t enough. We went back to the counter to order a third serving of onion rings. Yes, they are that good!
The onion rings are crunchy, slightly sweet, and oh-so-delicious. As I write this, I’m thinking of going back to Larkburger just to get more onion rings.
Before you visit Larkburger, check out the restaurant’s online menu so you’re familiar with the menu, then be sure to disclosure your “allergy” to your server.
By the way, just a side note, the service at Larkburger is extremely slow. Every time I go there, I have to wait a long time for my order.
