The last 5 times (at least) we have been here, major cross contamination issues. Even going inside, meticulously picking apart their allergen list, explaining "allergy" needs.... still got sick. They have been officially crossed off our list. [Celiac unfriendly!]

I called to speak with someone about ordering gluten and dairy free and the person on the phone stated they didn't know what that meant and they didn't have a gluten free menu. When i stated that it lists online that they can accommodate they said "oh, then i guess we will figure it out." No thanks.

The waitress was careful and asked the chef about everything I had questions on. It was a good option for the whole family.

I have celiac and was glutened here on my second visit. The first time, we went for an early lunch. Loved the burger & the GF fries. The manager and waitress were very helpful & explained everything they do to avoid cross contamination. The second visit was at night & we were not early, so they were very busy. I had the same meal the second time, and was sick afterward with GI issues for a few days and joint pain for 5-6 weeks. If we try them again, we will go early or not go. If you are a celiac, I would recommend going early & stressing to the manager that you are very sensitive to cc.

This is a very well deserved 5 Star review... I don't give that out lightly. Especially since my daughter was diagnosed with CELIAC DISEASE. This goes out to the RR manager, Terri, and our server, Daniel, on Saturday night 3/21/15.

Of course, this is a chain burger place, not a Michelin star rated establishment! But I believe the rating should reflect the experience relative to the type of restaurant that it is. And for a "burgers & more" type of place, this one is by far one of the best!!

First of all, the service was BEYOND attentive and friendly. I always ask to speak with a manager and our server right away because of my daughter's Celiac... So we met Terri before we were seated. She readily went over RR's allergen program, precautions taken in the kitchen (separate prep materials, cutting board, utensils, GF buns kept and prepared separately, dedicated fryers for both fries, separate grill area to cook on, etc), and offered an iPad for us to look over all the Gluten Free menu options on their website. There were apps, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees, sides, and shakes!

When we met our server, Daniel, he had already been filled in (by Terri) on our special needs, and he was also extremely helpful and anything he didn't know, he went and found out! Very prompt, attentive, helpful with menu suggestions, etc. He then told us that Terri went in the kitchen to oversee preparation of my daughter's Gluten Free meal herself!

The menu... We were shocked how much their menu options have evolved! There were some really "gourmet" type options on there, as well as the classic burger and fries... And lots of GF options of all kinds. Just tell your server! I got the Angus burger w/ roasted tomatoes, garlic aioli, arugula, and provolone, on ciabatta type bun with sweet potato fries... it was awesome! My husband got the Fish Sandwich and fries (said it was delicious), my son got the bacon cheeseburger and devoured it all, my non Celiac daughter got the kids chicken sandwich w provolone with fries and loved it. My Celiac daughter also got the chicken sandwich w provolone on the GF bun and fries... She said it was the best bun she's had (she ate it all) and even though she's "not too big on fries", those were the best she's had and her new favorite! I took a bite of her sandwich, and I loved the bun too! Found out it was Udi's, which explained it... Awesome!

Overall, it was a home run... And a stress free, delicious dining experience for our family. Not only was my celiac daughter extremely happy, but the rest of got to enjoy exactly what we wanted too! Not so easy to find these days. We are excited to go back regularly, as there are so many different options for us (and my daughter!) to still try... Not just burgers, but sandwiches, entrees, pasta, salads, appetizers, and of course many other burgers!

Thank you Terri and thank you Red Robin! Your efforts are very much appreciated!

I've constantly been impressed with this location - as soon as the server hears 'allergy', they are on it. The first time we ordered, he also said we needed to order the patty and fries without seasoning, as well as get the GF bun. Then the burger was brought to the table separate from the other food, and he was wearing gloves! Each time we've had this experience, they are consistently attentive. Kudos for training their staff so well and for being genuinely caring.

I was "glutenated" at this Red Robin. It could be my fault, though, hence the two star review. I ordered off their gluten free menu, which is a 3-ring binder full of nutritional information. I got the simple burger with lettuce wrap in place of the bun and sweet potato fries. In the menu, it states the regular fries are considered gluten free, but they use the same fryers for everything so cross contamination is a concern so they aren't listed as a safe product. Sweet potato fries are listed as safe, however, so I ordered them. There's a possibility they were fried and not baked. I never asked, but I wish I did. I also used some of the seasoning at the table. It listed soy as an allergen, but not wheat. Still, I know better because wheat (and other gluten containing foods) can hide anywhere. I just want to let everyone know to be a little more careful than I was at Red Robin.

Good burger, but they had run out of GF buns. Would have been much better with bun instead of lettuce wrap. Maybe next time...

I've tried eating here several times and I'd say they get it right 50 percent of the time. I always let the server know and they note it in the order. I've ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with broccoli and also ordered the avocado salad with no croutons. First time I ordered the sandwich with a gf bun but still had symptoms I'd had gluten. Second time, I ordered no bun...still symptoms. The only thing I've had no symptoms from was the salad. I just don't feel the kitchen staff really takes care ensuring no cross contamination despite being informed it's necessary.

After reading the more recent food reviews, my husband and I gave our local Red Robin another try. It was a good experience! I really appreciate the interactive website allergen avoider and it made choosing safe options really easy. Our server was brand new but she did great. Happy to have RR back on the rotation again.

I never actually went in but I ordered takeout. Got a burger with coleslaw. Everything tasted great, wish they had more options though.
