Between the interactive online menu that you can see the ingredients of each item and what you can substitute with. Every time I come here and mention any allergy the waiter /waitress will ask “do you mind sharing your allergies with me so we can help protect your meal.”

My son is an extremely sensitive celiac. We ate here last night with 0 issues. Waiter was completely aware about cross contamination.

Unfortunately none of the meat is listed as truly gluten free. They state that all meat grilled on site may be cross-contaminated. I do appreciate them stating that fact but due to being celiac did not eat anything of substance here. Just fries, which have a separate fryer.

The hostess has no idea if they had a GF menu, but once I talked to our sever she had a manager come out with their allergen menu (which is in an iPad, which is kind of cool). Had the spinach dip and Cobb salad - no ill effects.

Very happy with the attention to detail by our server. Was very knowledgeable. Was able to get a hamburger on a GF roll and French fries without their seasoning were GF also. Very pleased. Will definitely eat there again.

The GF bun was delicious. I asked the server if any of the sauces were GF and he didn't know and didn't offer to ask. I googled the chipolte sauce and it said it was. Was still Glutened. I imagine it was from cross contamination.

Good gluten free rolls, manager said they cook everything on a separate grill to avoid cross contamination, however, I've gotten sick twice now eating there.

Service is great but not when crowded. The gf buns are Udi's buns and each time I have come, the buns are always served overcooked and nearly too hard to eat. It's disappointing because the Red Robin in Carlisle and Hershey are so good, with gf buns served just right. However, a friend said that if you specifically ask for SOFT buns, they will comply.

Be sure to order from their GF menu specifically as it changes every month. I always ate their salsa and guacamole but all of a sudden it's not GF. Managers are knowledgable and accommodating but the kids working there are not.

They have a dedicated fryer for fries. They can also do burger without bun, lettuce wrapped, or gf bun. The gf bun is actually one of the best around.

I go here fairly regularly & have never had an issue with Red Robin. Every time I let the server know I have an allergy & they are always able to accommodate me. Their gluten free bun is so good, and the fries are safe to eat as well.

I was surprised when someone recommended Red Robin as a celiac friendly restaurant, but decided to give it a try. Their staff seemed knowledgeable about their food safety precautions and had the manager oversee the process. Have eaten there several times without getting sick.

Still need to be careful about what surfaces you touch on the way in and out, and there are contamination risks, but overall have had a safe experience and a sense that the staff knew how to handle the food with care. Gluten free substitute options have been very good as well. Certainly nothing that takes way from the experience at all.

Only downside is ordering requires comparing the physical menu to the online allergen menu, though the allergen menu is at least interactive and has “swap out” options for ingredients that need to be replaced.

2024 edit: have now eaten here probably around 15 times and have only once had what seemed like a clear gluten reaction, which I consider to be a pretty great record for an environment with so many gluten-containing foods eaten by hand. Easily could have been some other surface or something and not the food that caused the reaction. They seem consistently knowledgeable and careful. And the online allergy menu helps a ton with ordering.

Definitely recommend Red Robin for Celiacs.
