We didn’t used to like their gf buns but after a few years we recently tried again and they have gotten much better. I know they’re a chain and can vary depending on location but the north Austin restaurant has been good. We’ve ordered twice now and didn’t get any flare ups after eating. Was actually quite impressed. Now the price has gone way up. $20 for a gf burger and side but when you don’t want to cook it’s worth it.

They used to be really great about cross-contamination, but seem to have gotten lax in recent years. I got horribly glutened tonight.

Read their website on sources of their food. says they cannot guarantee if their suppliers change their ingredients without notice. Not reliable for celiacs.

Their GF buns are pretty tasty, and I'm a big fan of the lettuce wrap offering they have.

However, after having many conversations with the staff and several managers, I'm pretty much confirmed that the seasoning salt that they use on the fries if you don't ask them to be plain and the hamburger unless you specifically ask them not to (which contains gluten) is often added to the meat itself before they prepare the hamburgers.

Just a process thing, and there is no way to remove it. Therefore, Red Robin is not celiac friendly, and is a risky place to eat if you are trying to avoid contamination as much as possible.

But, if you can tolerate small amounts, they have a variety of yummy burgers.

Clueless waitstaff and unpleasant managers who don't want to be bothered by someone who has gluten issues. I was advised by the manager to not eat there at all.

Love this place!! One of the only Red Robin’s that I’ve found that is safe and I feel comfortable going to. Never gotten sick and I’m extremely sensitive and the servers are always great about my gf needs!

I was prepared to just enjoy the company and eat when I got home (where I know it is celiac safe.) Out waitress, Dorothy, explained in detail how the kitchen has a dedicated area to food allergies. The fries are ALL cooked in a dedicated GF fryer!!! I am so stoked that she took the time to make me feel comfortable and safe. We have visited again and I did eat (a lot) with zero problems. Service, food and preparation all exceeded my expectations.

I informed my server that I have celiac disease, he let me know that they have gluten free buns, the fries are gluten free and they have a separate fryer for gluten items. I ordered the chicken teriyaki sandwich, minus the teriyaki sauce because we all know that is not GF and asked to please have my bun substituted for a gluten free bun. After the server walked away and put our order in, I heard him yell very loud to the cooks " I have a severe gluten allergy order coming back". My food came out as ordered and looked great, I will say that they do charge $1 to substitute the bun to a GF. I have not gotten sick so far and it has been 10 hrs since I have eaten my meal, but my stomach has been very loud and very upset. Not sure that I will trust eating here again.

There is not a GF Menu, however they do have an interactive allergen menu on their website which is extremely helpful. GF buns available, make sure you tell them you have a severe allergy. Fries are made in a dedicated fryer!
