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...
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.
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.
Excellent service every time we go. I even ordered the garlic parm fries to try once and a manager came out to let me know that while those are on the GF menu, he wanted me to know that the butter used is near other items in the kitchen, and he couldn't guarantee there wouldn't be cross contamination. I was floored. We've been back 10 times. I always get the same thing, but I'm never disappointed. Service is great, fries are great.. and do yourself a favor and get the gourmet cheeseburger with all toppings except relish, and then dip it in the sweet and spicy ketchup.. reminds me of a whopper!!!
There was a noodle (not gluten free) in my fries. If that weren't bad enough I think it fell in the "designated frier" contaminating all my fries. Plus staff was melancholy and slow. Did make sure to bring gluten free bun and fry in designated frier, but like I said, that wasn't so hot either.
Super helpful. They will give you an iPad with allergy lists and you can click on gluten or wheat and they will give you all the options. You can not have their yummy fry seasoning but you can have lots of their condiments from ranch to chipotle sauce. No campfire if you love it like me but I appreciated all the patience they had with my questions
Celiac review-I've never had a bad experience here. I love their lettuce wrap burgers!
I was their a few days ago. They are not Gluten free. They have no gluten free menu's. And the waitresses where very Un- knowledgeable. The only thing they have gluten free is buns. So I don't know how they can say they are gluten free, One thing is not a menu, and does not fall under the category of gluten free. I was very disappointed. And we sat their for almost an Hour before our waitress came to take our order. Was not impressed at all.
The waiter seemed very knowledgeable when I told him of my allergy, ordered a chili burger and 'replaced' the bun with a gluten free bun. However they either didn't replace the bun or the French fries/hamburger were cross contaminated. I feel so sick and I'm disappointed they didn't take the precautions necessary for their allergen menu.
While I love that they have a GF menu, 4out of 5 times I've ate there the burger was burnt, dry, and completely nasty. I go hoping to have a good meal and end up disappointed every time.
It was a good experience. Waitress knew what I was talking about. She did not put my order next to my companion's order. They had to give me an iPad to see what was gluten free on their menu. When I went to another RR location the screens at each table had that info on it. Not here. I had no issues and I am sensitive. So good to eat Fries out - without the seasoning. I noticed this time they state that cross contamination can occur with fries and burgers.
They are aware of celiac and offer gluten free buns that are pretty good. They also have a dedicated gluten free fryer. We'd eaten there many times until one night, the sweet potato fries arrived with a big hunk of breading in the middle of them. Our waitress called the manager out to show him and they did apologize and comped my meal, but it was too late. I'd eaten 3-4 fries before I noticed the breaking & ended up getting very sick :(
Got the burger with gluten free bun. It was really good! I do wonder why the white corn tortilla chips are not suitable for gluten/wheat free.
The waitress was very helpful when we mentioned our son needed a GF meal. She seemed to take great care in making sure our son's meal was made correctly and informed her manager as well. Since he's only 4, it will be tough to tell if he has a reaction, but this waitress took our requests seriously.
Horrible experience. Notified waitress of gluten allergy apparently she didn't tell the kitchen staff. When I got to the bottom of my fries there were onion rings = gluten. The manager came over and said sorry and left, didn't seem to care and didn't offer to discount our meals they messed up. My kids and I all got sick from it. Very disappointing experience. We won't be returning.
