I've eaten here dozens of times. if the fries have seasoning, ask for plain. The server is always aware of what to do (gluten free fries, bun). Otherwise my burger has always been on a proper bun, haven't gotten sick. Usually keep it simple burger or Red Robin burger.

tip: order your free extra fries right when food is served. otherwise you have to wait too long.

I am a celiac and had such a bad experience I won't even attempt going there again. It took them 15 minutes to come over with a card that they wanted me to scan in order to even see the gf options. Besides the fact that the restaurant is in an area where the cell service isn't great, and I have Verizon and don't usually have an issue, the menu is quite annoying to navigate on the phone. I finally decided on a salad which obviously was to be served without the croutons and blue cheese as per my allergy and the gf menu they had me look at. When I received my order there was blue cheese on the plate and if that was the only issue I would have chalked it up to someone not realizing that blue cheese can be an issue for celiacs but the fact that there were two large garlic toast croutons on the plate confirmed that the staff had no idea what gluten is. I then had to send it back and decided I wasn't going to chance eating there. When the waiter returned to the table I asked him if he knew what gluten was he had no idea. Then he told me that even though I was ordering off of the gluten free menu I should have made sure he wrote down that I wanted the gf option and then I should have specified what should and should not be in the dish I was ordering. I'm sorry but I thought that the fact that I was ordering off their gf menu and their menu specifies what should not be in that specific salad I was okay. I was wrong. I would not recommend going there is you are celiac because you will be taking a chance that the wait staff has no clue about a gluten allergy and that can lead to cross contamination and sickness.

When you ask for the gluten free menu you're given a card to scan which brings you to their food allergy website. Many items can be modified to be GF friendly. Burgers can be served on GF rolls which are quite good. The fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer but come with the warning of possible cross contamination during handling. Good to know you can get a killer burger and chili cheese fries and stick to the diet.

There is no real menu. Just a binder filled with what you can't have. You have to go back and forth with regular menu to see what is in the actual meal. You have to do the work. They do make their fries with different machinery and have gluten free buns for an added charge. Probably won't go back.

Gf options are not options it all. It's a regular menu--no buns, no garlic bread, no croutons, no wraps. Absolutely useless.

Excellent gf menu! Manager oversees cooking. They cook gf fries in separate oil from non gf food. Just make sure you clarify you can't have the red Robyn seasoning.

They brought a gluten free protein wrap cheeseburger with a regular one and argued that there is no such thing as cross contamination. Will not go back.

Have eaten here dozens of times without a problem. Ask for the allergy book at the hostess station - gf options are listed, along with the top 8 allergens. Beware that the seasoning mix is not gf, nor are the fries (i ask for steamed veg instead). The book gives you the modifications to request - no bun, no seasoning, etc.. They make the best lettuce "bun" around, though!

Always a good choice if you’re looking for a burger WITH a bun. Also, you can eat the fries because they use a separate fryer!

Gluten free buns are awesome and ask for the fries to be gluten free so they make sure they are not in a shared fryer!! I’ve never been disappointed here

Had to wait for a table and the service was a bit slow, but that’s true for most restaurants these days. My cheeseburger and a lettuce wrap was quite nice, and the french fries gave me no trouble at all. (Typically they use a separate fryer at all locations)

Knowledgeable about foot prep and handling for Celiacs. And the GF bun is actually good! Eaten there many times with no issues. UPDATE: 06/09/22 - lost most of my confidence. GF order was marked as allergen/GF, but served on a regular bun (which I recognized and did not eat). Burger had to be made 3 times to get it right. Then she said something about asking for GF fries… after I had already eaten a batch. That will be my last visit there.
