This place was recommended by people we met in a park. The food was excellent loved the chicken tortilla soup and bbq sandwich. My husband had the cheese steak which was also very good.It was very busy at lunch but we did not feel neglected.

Went with my friend here for lunch. I started with a Bloody Mary, which sad to say was not very good lol. We each had a cup of soup, a beef slider (fantastic), but the best was the truffle french fries topped with parmesan cheese....More

Reasonably priced. Loved the outdoor seating. Not a great menu, but we found the salmon and the mahi mahi to be well prepared. It's billed as the oldest restaurant in town.

Checked out several places in Aspen and found The Red Onion. Food prices were very reasonable and great tasting. Service was very good. The atmosphere is very quaint and historical.

The Red Onion had a varied menu, but we chose burgers. I had a salad with mine, which was fresh and good. Husband had fries which were great. Nice ambiance and reasonable prices.

I'm not sure if they have gluten free choices. You would need to check their menu.
