Most of their burgers are available gluten free by ordering with GF bun. Also, all types of fries and seasoning are GF and cooked in their own fryer. Waitress was aware of all this and took time to explain options. Very friendly and helpful. Ate there 2 days ago and had no reaction. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac. Have also heard from a friend with 10+ years Celiac diagnosis and someone else with a severe wheat allergy (anaphylaxis ) that they have eaten here multiple times with no problems. Another positive, they were only seating a small number of tables with plenty of space between them. I have not been eating at restaurants during covid and had planned to get carry out but ended up eating there because you could tell they were being very cautious and pro-active so I ended staying. Very positive experience!

No separate GF menu or GF indicators on the menus at the restaurant, but Red Robins have a good interactive allergy menu online, which helps with figuring out what to order. The waitress we had assured us that they handle all allergy tickets in a separate prep area and change gloves, utensils, etc. in the kitchen. The dedicated fryers for the french fries are a plus! No manager came over to talk to us, but my order did come out with a special “allergy” pick in it, and our check did show the allergy note on my order. I felt good after eating here!

Do not eat here if you have Celiac disease. They no long have a gf menu. They bring you a filthy dirty iPad and you have to agree to their terms in the screen to be able to see gf options. It states that they cook the meats on the same broiler. Also the server stated that they cannot give you advice on what to order. They do have a dedicated fryer now for gf fries though.

ordered a gluten free chopped salad (without blue cheese and croutons). when the salad arrived I was surprised to see blue cheese on the salad and asked the waiter. he assured me the blue cheese was gf. as I was about to take my first bite, the waiter came back and said he was mistaken and the blue cheese was indeed not gf. close call....

Edit:. They've changed the buns and now are horrible. Don't waste your money.

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 😞 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.
