The waitress was extremely friendly and considerate of the accommodations we were asking for. GF buns and GF fries just ask!

My 4 year old daughter has Celiac disease so it can be hard to find options that a picky little one likes. They have grilled chicken nuggets/tenders and a gluten free bun for burgers. She loved her GF burger! There are lots of options for GF sides including their fries as they have a specific GF fryer. They also put an alert on her order to make sure they took safety precautions to avoid any cross-contact and put a little GF flag on her food as well.

Waitress assured us that the appropriate precautions would be taken. They have a separate fryer for the French fries, she said gloves would be changed and food would be cooked in a designated area. Felt safe eating here.

I've been here several times now. They have a dedicated fryer for their steak fries, however one time they gave me the wrong fries. I've been a little more careful since, but I have now been glutened there twice even after they put on the allergy markers and say it will be safe.

Love this place! I’ve been to other Red Robin’s in the past. But this one knows what it’s doing with being Celiac safe! Separate fryer for GF fries and separate prep space for GF food. I ordered a gourmet burger with a gluten free bun—DELISH! Did not inquire about the pizza’s they offer.. but I plan to see if they can accommodate for a celiac safe one the next time

They were very helpful here. We went in for a burger and my son actually ended up getting Donatos Pizza that they also serve here. He very much liked it. Of course you have to get the fries!

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.

I usually order the California chicken burger without guacamole and gf french fries. I don’t know what’s in the guacamole or what Red Robin’s process is to isolate the ingredients when it’s prepared. It can’t be gluten free.

Really wish I could write a better review of this place. Waitress was very accommodating, separate allergen menu, dedicated fryer for fries and GF bun for my burger. But I've eaten there twice in the last two years and can now say definitively I've gotten sick afrer both times. Maybe shared grill space for the burgers? Not sure but don't think I'll take the risk again.

Had the worst experience with their takeout when I visited the area. Received a third of gluten free fries compared to the regular order, they forgot the guacamole on the guacamole burgers, and food was tasteless. I reveived a partial credit for the inconvenience, but ended up throwing my order away.

I was nervous about going here after reading the lukewarm reviews, but boy was I impressed! I'd never eaten at Red Robin before, but I've already gone back because it was so good. I immediately mentioned to my waitress that I had celiac and she checked with the chefs to ensure their location had a dedicated GF fryer. Then the manager oversaw my entire meal. The gluten free bun on my grilled turkey burger was delicious - the first I've eaten in a year! - and the bottomless GF steak fries were amazing! I didn't suffer any ill effects and had plenty of leftovers. Just be sure to download their app or check the allergen menu online since they don't have GF menus at the restaurant.

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.

This is our go to for family meals. Lots of gluten free options for me and fries are cooked in separate fryer. I have not gotten sick yet and there are lots of options for our kids too (not gluten free)

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.
