Gluten free menu and dedicated frier for fries. Waitress was knowledgeable. Have always had good experiences at a Red Robin’s and this one is no different.

They were excellent in giving me gf options, identifying my meal as "special handling" with a purple flag so it didn't get cross contamination, and allowing me to enjoy a real meal (including fries!) with my family that was not just salad. However, the gf hamburger bun was really dry and tasted stale. Flavor was good, texture just felt like a week old.

Great dining experience! I ordered the California Chicken Burger. They have good gluten-free buns, but I asked for the lettuce wrapped version. The server was so knowledgable and helpful. She made me feel completely comfortable with my meal. There is an interactive allergy menu available online where you can indicate your preferences and it will list safe menu items and substitutions, but I didn't need it since the server was so attentive. My order was flagged as "Celiac" and everything was prepared in a dedicated area. The chicken breast and bacon were both cooked in a seperate pan rather than on the grill. They also have a dedicated fryer for french fries. Highly recommend!

This is not a place to eat if you’re a celiac. Despite the fryer, the place is filled with contact areas of cross contamination.

Unfortunately, NONE of the bacon is gluten free any more. They cook it in the fryalator I'm told, and not the gluten free one. It also appears that they may not be as careful in general, as there was an onion string on the bottom of my gluten free fries, it's about 2 hours later, and I've clearly been exposed ๐Ÿ˜ž proceed with caution if you go here. I feel awful writing this review, as this used to be one of my favorite places to eat, and never have to worry...

Red Robin is my go to place when I have a taste for a cheese burger. My wife and I have eaten there a minimum of ten times since my diagnosis of severe gluten allergy. She gets a cheese burger and I get a gluten free cheese burger. Their fries are great! They have earned all five stars each time we dine there.
