    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.

    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!

    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!

    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).

    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.

    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

    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.
