Some of the best burgers in town, at least on Pearl Street and reasonably priced. The beers are decent and overall good value here.

Definitely a place to stop if you are in Boulder. They let you sample beer while you wait and have an amazing atmosphere. Only downside is they don’t have any way to take beer to go and only take cash.

Stopped here for a late lunch and it was very crowded. It's a small place, but we only had to wait about 10 minutes. As soon as they take your name they encourage you to go to the bar in the back and sample their...More

I think their South Boulder location may be able to manage the size. I do. It know the policy of the pub on large groups though. It is cash only so you will need a wad of bills or a local check.

They only take cash so I am guessing they do not sell gift cards. Try Avery brewery or Fate brewery that may sell gift cards

They do not take reservations and are often busy, but very accommodating while you wait. I'm not sure about gluten free.
