I didn't try the gluten free buns, I opted for the lettuce wrap instead. I was very appreciative to be able to enjoy fries and garlic aioli. Everyone else in party ate gluten, because they can, and they took a nap when they got home.

We ate here with 4 people- a celiac, a vegan, a dairy free and a low FODMAP. The Server, Tiffany was amazing in making sure there were no allergens in our food. They have a gluten free bun and dedicated fryer for the fries. No problems.

Long review ahead. It will be worth to read how gluten-UNfriendly this place is, but for those who don’t want to read, I’ll tell you this: find another place to eat or eat at home. This place does not take allergy protocol seriously and does not know what gluten free truly is. This place is completely unsafe for celiacs.

I have celiac disease and have been to this restaurant 3 times. All 3 times were not a pleasant experience. You’d think I would learn the first time, but seeing so many raves on Facebook about RRs amazing gluten free menu and how safe everyone was, I kept deciding to give it a try. The first time, a few months ago, I ask for the gluten free menu (they have tablets they bring to the table for allergy selection) and she told me to look it up on my phone. Not sure why it’s assumed I have a smart phone or the ability to look the menu up myself, but okay. I look it up and it’s not easy to access from my phone. It’s glitchy, it’s slow, and it’s all in all hard to navigate. I wished they had given me a tablet but I thought maybe this location didn’t have them. I ordered a gluten free burger off of the menu and said “so of course the gluten free bun and none of the sauces that come on the original burger, I’ll need gluten free sauces on the side”. The waitress then proceeds to ask me what else on the burger has gluten, which I find astonishing as I believe all waitresses should come equipped with that knowledge or should be able to ask the kitchen staff. I told her I don’t know, but according to this menu I believe it’s just the original bun and original sauces. So please a gluten free bun, no sauces on burger, and I asked for a special gluten free sauce on the side. I told her I have severe celiac disease so will get really sick if my burger is not prepared properly. I can’t have any gluten at all touch my burger, so I’ll need the staff to change gloves and use clean utensils. She acted confused and mad that I was asking for such allergy protocol to take place. I get my burger back and the burger has the original gluten sauce on the burger, which I told her a couple different times I could NOT have on my burger. I asked her to remake my burger because if they just replace the bun, but not the whole patty, I will get sick. It comes back out and it’s fine. The second time I went, my husband ordered it over the phone for me and we went to pick it up for carry out. He stressed over the phone that they HAVE to change gloves before handling my food and make sure nothing with gluten touches my food as I can get extremely sick and last time it wasn’t made correctly. I get it out to the car, and lo and behold, it isn’t gluten free (has the original BBQ sauce that contains gluten) again. I sent it back in with my husband and asked for a refund. The last, and it WILL be my last, time of going in and ordering food was yesterday afternoon. I asked for the gluten free menu (thinking surely they have tablets as I saw another table with a tablet) and she told me look it up on my phone. 🙄 so I did. It, again, wasn’t working the way it should. She then comes over and tells me “she can bring me a tablet over if the phone isn’t working”—something she should have offered in the beginning. I order my food and stress the important allergy protocol I need the kitchen staff to take. I get my food out and there is no purple toothpick indicative of a gluten-free burger. I pointed that out to her and the waitress says “oh I can get that for you if you want”—I said no, that not what I mean. I want to know my burger is safe. That it is COMPLETELY gluten free. She tells me yes it is. I check it over and it SEEMS okay (gluten free bun, no sauces on burger). Okay, then. I eat, and about 15 minutes into eating I start getting my celiac symptoms. By a few hours later, I was puking out of the car door by the side of the road and sick all night long.

Point of this long review: celiacs, find a different place to eat, or at least at a different location. I’ve spoken to the manager about this, and he doesn’t seem knowledgeable about gluten free procedures. This Red Robin is not celiac safe and quite frankly I wouldn’t trust any RR at this point. They don’t have a dedicated kitchen space and they do not produce gluten free burgers even when stressed as much as you can for it to be gluten free. This place may make you sick if you’re sensitive like me. Next time I go to Red Robin with family, especially to this location, I’ll stick with a pop.

I think our visit to this Red Robin was doomed from the start. We asked for a gluten free menu (we have gotten them from other locations) and they told us they no longer carry them to look it up on our phone. Gf menu was difficult to find from a phone. When ordering we talked to the server told him the order was gluten free he seemed knowledgable giving recommendations on which burgers would be gluten free and ordered a gf bun. Also questioned about the fries being prepared gf as each location is different and the server indicated yes but with no seasoning.

Fast forward to the meal coming out and the burger came on a regular bun. Talked to the server and sent it back to be made again (not just switch out the bun). Meal came out a second time and appeared to be gf. Well apparently either the fries were not gf as suggested or they cross contaminated the burger because ended up sick.

We've been here many times and have never had an issue with the unseasoned fries or the GF buns. The food is great and the service is awesome at this Red Robin. I've been to many in the chain without issue and I have an extreme sensitivity so this is important to me. This has to be my favorite location though.

Ordered gluten free fries, refills were clearly marked as from the dedicated fryer. I was able to have my sandwich prepared in a clean space and with a gluten free bun. No problems. All staff polite with my requests.

We've ordered from here a couple times for our celiac daughter and we've had positive experiences both times. She's had the fries, kids chicken, side salad, broccoli and milk. You can specify when you order that you have celiac.
