    I've eaten here dozens of times. if the fries have seasoning, ask for plain. The server is always aware of what to do (gluten free fries, bun). Otherwise my burger has always been on a proper bun, haven't gotten sick. Usually keep it simple burger or Red Robin burger. tip: order your free extra fries right when food is served. otherwise you have to wait too long.

    I am a celiac and had such a bad experience I won't even attempt going there again. It took them 15 minutes to come over with a card that they wanted me to scan in order to even see the gf options. Besides the fact that the restaurant is in an area where the cell service isn't great, and I have Verizon and don't usually have an issue, the menu is quite annoying to navigate on the phone. I finally decided on a salad which obviously was to be served without the croutons and blue cheese as per my allergy and the gf menu they had me look at. When I received my order there was blue cheese on the plate and if that was the only issue I would have chalked it up to someone not realizing that blue cheese can be an issue for celiacs but the fact that there were two large garlic toast croutons on the plate confirmed that the staff had no idea what gluten is. I then had to send it back and decided I wasn't going to chance eating there. When the waiter returned to the table I asked him if he knew what gluten was he had no idea. Then he told me that even though I was ordering off of the gluten free menu I should have made sure he wrote down that I wanted the gf option and then I should have specified what should and should not be in the dish I was ordering. I'm sorry but I thought that the fact that I was ordering off their gf menu and their menu specifies what should not be in that specific salad I was okay. I was wrong. I would not recommend going there is you are celiac because you will be taking a chance that the wait staff has no clue about a gluten allergy and that can lead to cross contamination and sickness.

    When you ask for the gluten free menu you're given a card to scan which brings you to their food allergy website. Many items can be modified to be GF friendly. Burgers can be served on GF rolls which are quite good. The fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer but come with the warning of possible cross contamination during handling. Good to know you can get a killer burger and chili cheese fries and stick to the diet.

    There is no real menu. Just a binder filled with what you can't have. You have to go back and forth with regular menu to see what is in the actual meal. You have to do the work. They do make their fries with different machinery and have gluten free buns for an added charge. Probably won't go back.

    Gf options are not options it all. It's a regular menu--no buns, no garlic bread, no croutons, no wraps. Absolutely useless.

    Have eaten here dozens of times without a problem. Ask for the allergy book at the hostess station - gf options are listed, along with the top 8 allergens. Beware that the seasoning mix is not gf, nor are the fries (i ask for steamed veg instead). The book gives you the modifications to request - no bun, no seasoning, etc.. They make the best lettuce "bun" around, though!

    If I could give this location zero stars I would. I've been here twice now and both times have gotten sick even though they assured me what I was ordering was gluten free. Absolutely horrible service when it came to being allergy sensitive, to the point that even my friends who were with me who were not gluten free began laughing uncontrollably after the server would walk away because the things they said were so ridiculous! For example when I asked if the fries that he had just brought out were the gf ones they said they would make me, he responded, "um, it has salt." And walked away like he had no doubt that was answer enough. Excuse me, do you have any idea what gluten is? Because salt has not a thing to do with it. And if it tells you something about whether it's the gf version or not, please share that info, thanks. Absolutely crazy that they would find the things they did to be any level of customer service. I will NEVER eat at any red robin location again after these two experiences at this location. Do yourself a big favor and don't go here.

    I asked for a burger on a gluten-free bun, which prompted the server to ask if I had an allergy. I told her I have Celiac. When she brought the food, she said, "I'm sorry it took a while, we were waiting for the gluten-free fries." I was happy that they took my situation very seriously. The burger and fries were delicious!

    I ordered a gluten free burger and they brought it to the table with a regular bun! Thank goodness I was suspicious and flagged down someone. They took it back and the manager swore they made a completely fresh one. Side items were limited - I had fruit salad, which was delicious. I also had a raspberry limeade. They brought me a refill and it was cherry, which WASNT on the GF menu. I got really sick that night and it's hard to know which thing was the culprit, but I definitely won't be going back and beg my celiac friends to steer clear!

    This used to be safe, but they seem far less knowledgeable now. You have to get on your phone and go to their app or they have a iPad to view the GF options - however I got glutened last night. Feeling miserable today. Had a burger in a lettuce wrap and some hummus and veggies so I assume it was cross contamination.

    Fries and pink lemonade are amazing. I prefer my burger wrapped in lettuce than with the gf bun it was okay but not great but I'm fine with that gives me more room for fries. Last time I was at this location my order ended up being free due to my burger coming 3 minutes later than the rest of my table which I really didn't mind at all. Great service.

    Server put in the system that there was a person in my party with celiac. The chefs obviously did not care. Within the fries (which can are supposed to be cooked in a separate frier) was an onion ring. Onion rings are not gluten free. The wait staff and management apologized, but did not seem to understand what celiac was nor the reactions. We educated them, thoroughly. Would not recommend this restaurant.

    This location was TERRIBLE!!! My father-in- law ordered a side of the creamy BBQ sauce for his meal and it came on my plate. When I asked the waiter if this was gluten free he quickly replied yes. I followed up with asking him if he was 100% positive in which he replied yes this sauce is 100% gluten free! I put a little on my burger to try it and took a few bites. The manager came out and informed me that the sauce was not gluten free. He said I should be fine though because I only had 2 or 3 bites. I will never eat at this location again!

    Pretty good.....good gf fries! Good gf burger! And they do have gf buns..however they are pretty solid and hard to chew. But good once you get it in your mouth. They seemed very aware and sensitive about my allergy...about 5-7 choices of things I could have...however they had to bring me a tablet and stay there until I picked my meal....so no time to think and kind of uncomfortable to just sit there and watch the waiter stair. Overall it was good. Nice service too!

    Ordered the french onion soup which was on the gluten free menu (without the bread topping). I asked for no bread topping and they brought it out to me with it anyway. I kindly asked them to bring me a new one with no bread and made it clear I was severely allergic. They brought me a new one that appeared to have no bread. I started eating, took several bites and got to the bottom of the bowl only to realize they stuffed the bread at the bottom instead!! My mom was pissed and called the manager over and he was less than apologetic, even offered to bring me a THIRD bowl of soup but by then I was already feeling miserable and just wanted to leave. This was a few years ago so they may be better now but that was the last time I have ever eaten there. Very bad experience and missed a week of school because of being glutened from nothing but staff carelessness.

    We tried so many times to eat here (at the citrus park location) because we LOVE their fries and burgers. Three times, I sent my burger back because it had a sauce or an item specifically listed as not gluten free (even after I had a discussion with our server and the manager explaining that I have celiac). Three more times, I and my son (who is also celiac) got sick. I gave up.

    I have mixed feelings but all in all I ended up eating a meal without becoming sick. That said, I also had little confidence in the info my server gave me but the manager came out to confirm that there is currently a dedicated fry fryer and they don't put salt on from the kitchen for cross-contamination prevention. The seasoning on the tables is fine to eat. The burger... The first one they served me had a sweet potato fry fall out of it when I took my first bite. They made me a fresh burger when I pointed out the mystery fry. It was yummy, the gf bun gets a little soggy on the bottom but not terrible. I also inhaled my burger since I had to wait while the rest of the table ate for my second burger to come out. And they have omission beer and angry orchard!!
