This place was amazing. Awesome food. Awesome service and extremely knowledgeable and took special care with allergies. Lots of yummy options too. They even announced the fact I have celiac and my friends mushroom allergy when they brought the food to the table. If I could give a 10 star rating I dont feel like that would even be enough.

The staff is great about all gf options. They have 3 can\bottle gluten free beers and 4 ciders options. The corn beef for the is beer braised despite have a gf label next to it but that only applies to the veggie options which my server let me know right on the spot. Went two nights in a row because of how great it was!

I had an AMAZING dinner here. I tried the sweet potato fries (a little spicy for me but delish) as they have a DEDICATED FRYER, and a breakfast burger, complete with egg, bacon, and peanut butter. Surprisingly one of the best burger combos I’ve ever had! The staff was very knowledgeable about my celiac and dairy allergy. I would highly recommend this place.

Food was just ok. The gluten free bun was really soggy and basically disintegrated into the burger. They have GF fries which were good but cooked a little overdone. Our server was not friendly. Drinks were not cheap. It was an alright experience but I won’t be returning.

The menu is clearly marked with gluten free options (about half of the menu can be ordered GF). I had the turkey burger on a GF bun with regular fries in a dedicated GF fryer (both very yummy). I also had the Glutenberg Pale Ale beer (also very good). Overall great meal and ambiance. Others have stated the prices are high, but I think they’re fine since the food and service was quality. My bill was $23.50 with tax.

It was a GF hamburger and fries. Add on the tip and parking and we dropped over $40.00 for 2 burgers and water. The seeing is like a bar or lounge, not really our scene. There are better options fit us, for less.

Best burger I’ve ever had. Beef was supreme and flavorful. Cheese was top notch. Dressing was perfect for the burger. Fries are very good and dedicated fryer. Bun was okay but good for GF, so it was still dry and crumbled. But the hamburger outshined the bread!

Been to every Red Cow in town, and thus far, every spot has been great for celiacs. Rare GF frier means we can get fries and a burger. Almost all their burgers are optioned as GF, so be sure to order clearly. Also, most of the servers actually KNOW what celiac is. Points.

I am a celiac and got wicked glutened by there burger. Its possible that they didn't catch that I ordered GF, but I have just went through 2 awful days of serious gluten poisoning--this was no cross contamination. The burger was good, the fries were good, but gluten poisoning is not worth even an amazing dining experience. Celiac peeps, make sure that you double check with the server about your order.

Fabulous experience! There is SO much on the menu that is gluten free, and they have a dedicated fryer! We spoke with a manager and he said they take gluten free items and celiac disease very seriously. He mentioned they have staff members with celiac disease that have helped educate on celiac and the precautions that need to be taken. I had boneless buffalo wings for the first time in years!! SO good and I’d highly recommend!!!

I eat here a lot because I've always had great luck here, but just had a particularly outstanding service experience. My family ordered takeout from here tonight and the food came home with my "allergy" listed on the ticket, but the gf bread looked different than usual. We also received something in our bag that we hadn't ordered, so my radar was already up that they might be having an "off" night. I was going to just trust it and eat my food, hoping they were right, but I decided to double check. I called and talked to the front of house manager. It was 6:15pm - middle of dinner rush - and they were clearly swamped. But he took a full 10 minutes on the phone with me including double checking with the chef and all kinds of other details about the order to finally be able to fully assure me that I did indeed receive the gluten free (celiac safe) version of what I ordered. Many restaurants would've treated me much differently, especially knowing that they were right about what they received. I was blown away about how kind and respectful this manager was.

I’m sad to share this but it is a lesson for due diligence on everyone’s part.

Before I ordered, I shared that I had celiac and was quickly assured that my meal would be made gluten free with diligence given to cross contact (changing gloves, dedicated fryer, etc). The server said that they were writing it down as serious and would talk to the kitchen staff. Later, when my meal came, I again asked for confirmation that it was gluten free and was told it was. I was skeptical because the bun looked the same as glutinous ones but I did not think to press it in the moment. While I was eating fries but before I bit into the burger, a manager came over asking if I had ordered a gluten free burger. After I said yes they apologized and took the plate away. The server came back over and apologized and said that it was the fault of the kitchen because they (the server) had asked the kitchen staff before taking it that it was gluten free. Later, the manager said that there were multiple points where both the server and kitchen staff should have caught it and is planning on talking to all of the staff because of this misstep. I thanked the manager because this is serious and many people’s health depend upon it, especially when Red Cow is often recommended on #GFTCMN.

TL;DR listen to your instincts and ask questions/ask to speak to a manager when ordering. But even when you do, mistakes still happen.

Have eaten here several times without issue, but my last visit, I got sick. We typically go during slower times, but this time was a very busy Saturday night. After reading other reviews, I would say that they are still Celiac Friendly, but you have to be diligent every time you go. I admittedly have become lax after several times of going, but just telling them I had celiac and needed to be gluten free was not enough the last time.

THIS PLACE IS NOT GF FRIENDLY. While they have gluten free items, they have continued to make mistakes, even when I ask the wait staff to notify them that it's an allergy. After 4 chances, I am officially done. I have gotten, and eaten, burgers with a normal bun. I have ordered wings, and after eating, am notified that they contain soy sauce.

Ordered pulled pork sandwich with gluten free bun and server said she would make sure to let kitchen know that it needed to be gluten free. Order came out on a regular bun. The person suggested I keep the salad (touching the bun) and he would bring a new sandwich. I’ve lost my trust in red cow’s understanding of gluten free preparation. Celiac’s should stay away.
