After explicitly telling the waitress that I had a severe gluten allergy, I ordered from the allergy menu and she asked if croutons are ok on the salad. Highly uneducated staff about gluten. I ordered an angry orchard. She dropped it off at my table, I took a giant swig of what I thought to be angry orchard, she served me an IPA. I spit out as much as I could but how dare she. After it being brought to the managers attention, she sat there and smirked. This is my health and serving a celiac an IPA is not ok. We usually visit Red Robin’s when we travel and have never had any problems. Do not come here - this is unacceptable.

I asked of the waitress could tell me which burgers were gluten free because I knew I could get a gluten free bun. She seemed very irritated and said they can't help with allergies and walked away and came back with an iPad that she threw on the table and said I'd have to figure it out myself. The burger meat was pretty gross, won't be going back.

This is a chain that I love, but when I had to be Gluten-free I thought it was just salads for me but I was so happy to hear that red robin's burgers can be served with a Gluten-free bun!

They have an electronic allergen menu. You select the food allergies you have and a menu displays based on foods safe for you to have. They have GF buns and a dedicated fryer for the steak fries.

I have Celiac. I called ahead and spoke with the manager. Dedicated fryer, standard change gloves/wipe down counter procedure, really understanding and well educated staff. No issues here! Only give four stars because they accidentally put cheese on my burger and I'm lactose intolerant lol. But that's not as big a deal as gluten for me.

Went for Valentine’s Day and the server gave me the gluten free menu. Lots to choose from. They also have a separate gluten free fryer so you can enjoy fries! My non celiac husband said it was the best burger he ever had! Celiac safe!

I have not gotten sick eating here. However, getting an allergy menu is somewhat difficult and their app never seems to work on my phone so that’s kind of frustrating.

Great allergen menu (on iPad), clear communication of what was okay or not. Didn't get into any deep conversations to evaluate their general practices though. Had a cheeseburger and fries, so far so good.

Was excited to try a burger joint with a gluten free bun (bunless gets old!). The hostess was gluten free and gave me pointers, even stating to not be scared that the gluten free bun has gluten in it, since it's not dense and dry! The waitress was so accommodating, and each part of my meal was clearly marked with an allergy stick. Very impressed and will be back soon!

Friendly staff. Server was great and brought over an iPad where I could select my allergy. It pulled everything I could eat and what to remove to make it safe for me. Burger can be done with a lettuce wrap or gf bun. Not all burgers are gf but I had the bacon cheeseburger on a gf bun and it was delicious. Looking forward to eating here again.

Thankfully, I had a good experience here. If you check their website, they do warn you about possible cross-contamination at the prep area for fries, but, because they have a dedicated fryer, I decided to order them and didn’t get sick. My waiter wasn’t super knowledgeable so he referred me to their website where you can filter menu options by allergy and tell you how how to modify your food accordingly.

Safety


How confident are you that this establishment takes safety precautions against cross-contamination?

— Somewhat

On Safety

The server was great. He asked whether I needed gluten-free because of preference. allergy or Celiac so that he could make sure the kitchen took proper precautions. They also do separate allergy-free fries. I'm not sure if they bake them or have their own fryer but I've eaten them multiple times and never got sick. My food has also always been marked for an allergy when it comes out.

Quality & Quantity


Is there a gluten-free menu?

— Separate gluten-free menu

How many gluten-free options does this establishment offer?

— Several

How would you rate the taste and quality of the gluten-free food you tried?

— Excellent

On Quality & Quantity

I love that you can get fries which a lot of places that offer gluten-free burgers or sandwiches do not do. Also, the bun was properly handled and was a nice soft texture. Some places just through them in the microwave from the freezer and they are chewy or tough which has not been the case here.

Best burger I've had since being diagnosed with celiac disease. Had a bacon cheeseburger with a gluten free bun. A lot of gf breads and rolls just crumble but this bun held up really well with good taste. They mark gf with a pick and have a dedicated fryer. Steak fries were really good too. The waitress was very informative and attentive about my needs

Not safe for celiac at this location. I asked if they have a dedicated fryer for French fries (as many locations do) and the incompetent server responded “they told us that gluten free is without salt.” I again reiterated the question about having a separate fryer for French fries and she repeated the same answer about salt. Clearly the staff has no allergen training whatsoever. My boyfriend asked the server how to check his rewards balance and she said she didn’t know. Not sure why Nisha has a job with no training or knowledge. When we first arrived, we waited nearly 10 minutes without anyone even acknowledging us at the front table. There were a handful of full tables but a mostly empty restaurant and several waiters either standing around in the back or ignoring us. Finally, a driver for grubhub had enough and went to the kitchen to make sure someone came out. Will not return to this location.

We have eaten here twice now and I haven’t gotten sick! They have a completely different fryer for the fries. The only mistake that was made was gram crackers were out in my s’mores shake that I asked for with no gram cracker mix. Waiter got it fixed right away! Great bun on the burgers as well and the fries are delicious!

Dedicated fryer makes ordering french fries possible! Wish more places would get on board with this. Hamburger bun was soft, probably Uti’s brand? Use of the interactive allergen menu online was necessary, but fairly easy. Thank you Red Robin!

The waitress was wonderful and went back and spoke to the cook. She then came back and reassured me that the cook understood the restrictions and would prepare my food on the allergy table away from all other food. I had a burger in the lettuce wrap with broccoli. It was good and I did not get sick.

Yes, perhaps surprisingly, the crew at Red Robin Southgate knows how to do Celiac-safe gluten free food. I have visited many times and have never had anything close to a reaction. I get the Royal Burger with GF bun, and GF bottomless fries from their dedicated frier. The front staff is knowledgeable, as out the folks in the kitchen.

Manager came right over and was super helpful with accommodating my celiac. He ensured my meal would be prepped safely and was marked thoroughly with purple markers and was prepped with kitchen utensils from a separate kit. The burger was delicious, it was my first restaurant meal since my diagnosis and I was so relieved to have such a great meal that didn't make my super sensitive system deathly ill!!! Thank you so much to the manager, you were awesome!
