This is one of the restaurants I frequent the most in Albuquerque for GF food. (I have to avoid wheat/gluten but I’m not a celiac.) GF buns are available, and there is a separate “allergen fryer” available to prepare french fries, sweet potato fries, or their “yukon chips.” If you ask, they can show you a tablet with allergen information for each meal, and how to order items to be gluten free. During the rare times I have received a meal containing gluten, the most frequent reason was that the offsite call center collected my to-go information but didn’t relay it properly to the local restaurant. I can get around the call center by using the online ordering system. The other problem is that sometimes my salads appear with croutons (it doesn’t click with some cooks that croutons contain wheat.) This location (Office) and Cottonwood locations are significantly better at handling GF orders than the Winrock/Coronado location is.

I had a terrible experience at the Coronado location. My burger came out on a regular bun and when I told the waitress, she acted annoyed with me and sent the order back. It came out super soon after on the same plate. I was assured it was a new patty and plate and so I ate it. Ended up super sick the next day and haven't been back. Supposedly the westside location has a dedicated fryer for french fries. Maybe I will try that one sometime and hope for a better experience.

We came in a little late. 925 and they close at 10. However the second my burger came out with a rock hard microwaved bun and looking like a mess I knew I would need to take glutenease. I very nicely asked for a new top bun, not whole bun, just top and it came out piping hot and turned into a hockey puck a minute later. Our server was very nice however the kitchen was obviously in no mood to make our food. I've eaten at a lot of different red Robin's and have always walked away satisfied and unglutened. This one is not ran quite the same. So if you are in the area, consider a different restaurant.

Staff was knowledgeable. If you tell them you have celiac they give you an iPad you enter your allergies and it will tell you what items to avoid.

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.

I usually go to this location once a week, never been sick once. The staff always know what celiac is and make sure everything is safe. everything, including fries, always come out marked as celiac safe.
