Excellent GF options & a dedicated fryer
The servers were knowledgeable, they have me an iPad with the allergy menu to use. The gluten free bun tasted great! Them the manager came to see if I was happy with my experience. I will certainly come back here!
I have celiac and was glutened here on my second visit. The first time, we went for an early lunch. Loved the burger & the GF fries. The manager and waitress were very helpful & explained everything they do to avoid cross contamination. The second visit was at night & we were not early, so they were very busy. I had the same meal the second time, and was sick afterward with GI issues for a few days and joint pain for 5-6 weeks. If we try them again, we will go early or not go. If you are a celiac, I would recommend going early & stressing to the manager that you are very sensitive to cc.
This is a very well deserved 5 Star review... I don't give that out lightly. Especially since my daughter was diagnosed with CELIAC DISEASE. This goes out to the RR manager, Terri, and our server, Daniel, on Saturday night 3/21/15. Of course, this is a chain burger place, not a Michelin star rated establishment! But I believe the rating should reflect the experience relative to the type of restaurant that it is. And for a "burgers & more" type of place, this one is by far one of the best!! First of all, the service was BEYOND attentive and friendly. I always ask to speak with a manager and our server right away because of my daughter's Celiac... So we met Terri before we were seated. She readily went over RR's allergen program, precautions taken in the kitchen (separate prep materials, cutting board, utensils, GF buns kept and prepared separately, dedicated fryers for both fries, separate grill area to cook on, etc), and offered an iPad for us to look over all the Gluten Free menu options on their website. There were apps, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees, sides, and shakes! When we met our server, Daniel, he had already been filled in (by Terri) on our special needs, and he was also extremely helpful and anything he didn't know, he went and found out! Very prompt, attentive, helpful with menu suggestions, etc. He then told us that Terri went in the kitchen to oversee preparation of my daughter's Gluten Free meal herself! The menu... We were shocked how much their menu options have evolved! There were some really "gourmet" type options on there, as well as the classic burger and fries... And lots of GF options of all kinds. Just tell your server! I got the Angus burger w/ roasted tomatoes, garlic aioli, arugula, and provolone, on ciabatta type bun with sweet potato fries... it was awesome! My husband got the Fish Sandwich and fries (said it was delicious), my son got the bacon cheeseburger and devoured it all, my non Celiac daughter got the kids chicken sandwich w provolone with fries and loved it. My Celiac daughter also got the chicken sandwich w provolone on the GF bun and fries... She said it was the best bun she's had (she ate it all) and even though she's "not too big on fries", those were the best she's had and her new favorite! I took a bite of her sandwich, and I loved the bun too! Found out it was Udi's, which explained it... Awesome! Overall, it was a home run... And a stress free, delicious dining experience for our family. Not only was my celiac daughter extremely happy, but the rest of got to enjoy exactly what we wanted too! Not so easy to find these days. We are excited to go back regularly, as there are so many different options for us (and my daughter!) to still try... Not just burgers, but sandwiches, entrees, pasta, salads, appetizers, and of course many other burgers! Thank you Terri and thank you Red Robin! Your efforts are very much appreciated!
I've constantly been impressed with this location - as soon as the server hears 'allergy', they are on it. The first time we ordered, he also said we needed to order the patty and fries without seasoning, as well as get the GF bun. Then the burger was brought to the table separate from the other food, and he was wearing gloves! Each time we've had this experience, they are consistently attentive. Kudos for training their staff so well and for being genuinely caring.
I was "glutenated" at this Red Robin. It could be my fault, though, hence the two star review. I ordered off their gluten free menu, which is a 3-ring binder full of nutritional information. I got the simple burger with lettuce wrap in place of the bun and sweet potato fries. In the menu, it states the regular fries are considered gluten free, but they use the same fryers for everything so cross contamination is a concern so they aren't listed as a safe product. Sweet potato fries are listed as safe, however, so I ordered them. There's a possibility they were fried and not baked. I never asked, but I wish I did. I also used some of the seasoning at the table. It listed soy as an allergen, but not wheat. Still, I know better because wheat (and other gluten containing foods) can hide anywhere. I just want to let everyone know to be a little more careful than I was at Red Robin.
Good burger, but they had run out of GF buns. Would have been much better with bun instead of lettuce wrap. Maybe next time...
this location has been a regular stop for me for several years and they have been awesome. Amy? in the bar area often takes care of me & actually remembers customers usual orders, she's great! Never had problems with GF burger bun (yay!) & unseasoned fries (double yay!)
Amazing gluten free bun. It's light and soft with none of the denseness or crumbling found in most GF buns. I was doubtful it was actually GF until I compared it to my husband's and realized it was different. Fries are safe too. It's really a treat to be able to safely eat a real burger with a bun and fries!
My husband has celiac and I have an autoimmune diseases requiring me to be gf. Red Robin is a favorite of ours. Almost every server has been well educated and took our gf requirements seriously and we have appreciated it! Love that we can have their seasoning now that it's gf!
I eat here almost weekly. There are a lot of options and the fries are safe and bottomless. I usually get the French dip (minus onions for gf) on the gluten free bun. Lettuce wrap isn't bad for sandwiches either. Just let your server know it's an allergy.
The first time we had food from this location it was taken out and everything was fine. We went there again yesterday and my husband ended up with breaded onions on his burger and they gave us all seasoned fries which we were later told has gluten. Hit or miss really. Won't be going to this location again.
My waitress was Erika she was great! I ordered the bacon cheeseburger got a gf bun (which was so delicious) got gf fries tastes great. They have a separate fryer. They are very aware of cross contamination. Got more fries & we got gf fries for the table.
Excellent and delicious! Our meal was prepared and delivered by the manager who personally made sure there was no cross-contamination. They were very cautious and our server Toni was sure to double check everything and answer our questions. They had no problem when I asked that our toppings be taken out of the walk-in instead of on the line. First time dining out since diagnosis and their exceptional service put me at ease. I will be eating here again soon! Update 3/10/17: Went again this evening a little before 6pm. Our server Allen was an excellent listener and didn't complain about my many requests. He even wrote them all down to be able to communicate them to the kitchen staff and even suggested/checked ingredients of a few sauce options. Very understanding and I so appreciated his extra effort!
red robin has been very hit or miss for us. we have had successful visits only about 50% of the time. it seems that during lunch (when it's slower, perhaps?) we've been able to eat without my husband getting contaminated . every time we've come in at dinner time and it's busier, despite extensively explaining to the server who writes it all in red (they've shown us) he gets contaminated every. single. time. we love that they have a website that lists their gluten free products, but it's very frustrating to use for my husband. we love that they have dedicated fryers and are generally knowledgeable about allergens, etc. but this needs to be ALL the time. being busy doesn't excuse them to be sloppy or irresponsible and make someone sick.
My local restaurant used to be fantastic. The past several time I've been there (over the span of a year) I've gotten sick. I've found sesame seeds from a gluten filled bun on my plate three of those times. They are currently on my do not trust list.
For those with gluten sensitivity or intolerance, this restaurant would probably be fine. However, for those that have celiac-don't be fooled! They advertise as gluten free but have no accommodations for cross contamination. The staff was not very knowledgeable, and although they assured me they would cook my meal on tinfoil to prevent contamination, I was very sick afterwards.
Despite what I was told by the individual who took my order that things would be prepared gf and that the fries were in a dedicated fryer, whoever prepared my meal in the kitchen did not properly make a gf meal. I ordered a burger and fries from the to go menu, and was horribly sick within 20 minutes of eating. Was in pain for almost 48 hours after the meal. Food was not prepared as promised. If you are celiac, I would not go to a red robin facility.
I can't speak for celiac's, but for someone with gluten sensitivity, this is an excellent option. Staff cares about food sensitivities/allergies, and will let you look at an iPad or tablet to see what you can eat (mark which ingredient you wish to avoid).
Ate here 4 months ago got extremely sick as did my Mother in law. The restaurant was very dirty. Love Red Robin but after getting so sick I'm not going back. The Gluten-free buns are the worst. Extremely dry. The staff doesn't understand about cross contamination. Save your stomach.
While I was ordering my appetizer I made it very clear that I wanted the gf sweet potato fries to the server. When they came out, I started eating them trusting my server listened to me. Instead I come to fine mozzarella sticks mixed into them. Trying to explain this to the server that I'm now going to get sick over this, she told me that she didn't know they couldn't touch/about cross contamination. This is not my first experience with contamination here. Ordering a salad that you can have the blue cheese and crouton removed then having it served not once but twice with the contaminates on followed by them scraping it off like it's not a big deal had me speaking to the manger quite often. Why offer a specialized menu that you pride yourself in having without training your staff on what certain things contain??? I was very fortunate that my symptoms won't come straight away. I cannot image if someone had such a severe allergy that they would need an epi-pen than having your server use the excuse "I didn't know". Will not be visiting again anytime soon.
Multiple waiters caused me to get an answer to the question regarding if the chips served with the artichoke & spinach dip were gluten free or not. Since their online allergen list was down, I relied on the answer from one waitress who said they were. NOT! I got sick for 3 days. And my salad cane out with croutons but our waiter immediately sent it back. The manager brought it out with apologies and a promise that it was removed from my bill. Nice of her, but I won't be back. I'm not willing to get this sick again.
Honestly this was the worst Red Robin I've ever been to. Typically they have separate fryers nope not at this one. The waitress also told me she had bad Celiac, which honestly I have to completely doubt after she told me shared surfaces and fryers are totally fine for people with Celiac. I ended up having a wedgie burger which was fine but there wasn't any of the protein cup (I didn't get the gf bread) and the burger was way over cooked. Our waitress disappeared too so that didn't help either. Needless to say as much as I usually love Red Robin we won't be back.
Have been eating here for over a year with no problem but then on a celebration for a family birthday I found a piece of a chicken finger at the bottom of my refill fries that I have been told were gluten free when I informed my waitress who was horrified, told her manager. Manager did not handle it well, asked me if I would get sick, informed me that sometimes things get in their other fryer, and that his son is gluten intolerant so he knows how this goes. He finished his monologue with the simple statement that if I get sick please call them back later. Left me with no solution or anything. I did spend the next 36 hours very sick and in pain. Had to escalate this whole problem to the upper management and regional managers. Was never assured that the problem was fixed, will not eat here again.
Ordered a salad and made very clear I had an allergy and was not a life style choice. I had a fried onion straw hiding in my salad that I found after I had started eating. Told our waiter and his response was "My bad". And I had to tell him I wouldn't be paying for it, he didn't even offer to take it off our bill. We also wrote an email complaint and never heard anything back.
