Diagnosed 6 months ago, and I'm very sensitive. I bring my own wet wipes to restaurants to clean table space as well as the ketchup bottle from gluten fingers that have touched it. I also had to clean the iPad it was kinda yucky dirty. But it was nice they had it to order from allergen menu. I had a grilled chix sandwich ON A BUN!!! GF bun was delicious! Also ordered the Parmesan garlic allergen fries (dedicated fryer). I felt fine and did not get sick! My waitress seemed relatively aware of celiac disease and gluten free issues. 4 stars only due to the nasty iPad...word to the wise take wet wipes!
This was our first restaurant outing since my hubbies diagnosis with CD. I called the restaurant first to talk to the kitchen manager who explained that they have a gluten free menu and a dedicated fryer and that the kitchen staff change their gloves to prepare GF food so we gave it a try. The GF menu was on an IPad that was pretty disgustingly filthy itself. Our food came out on the same plates they serve the regular food on. It was good food though. When we asked for a refill on gluten free fries from the server who checked with us (not our waitress), he said it might take a minute to make which was fine. A minute later he brought out a pile of cold fries that he claimed were gluten free but we were very suspicious were not. My final word... I'm not sure I trust this place enough to avoid cross contamination especially on a busy Saturday night and probably won't be back.
So many great options and they pay attention and keep things separate. It's also exciting to have fries since they have a separate fryer.
Tastes so good, you'd never know it's gluten free. Never have been sick from their food either.
I not only love their burgers, but I could probably eat their fries forever and be happy.
I'm excited to try the food but just had to say the bartender just saved me! I ordered something I thought would be gluten free, the bacon aioli, and he went back to the kitchen and verified that it did have gluten. He was extremely knowledgeable and saved my butt! :)
Their gluten free buns are very good. They have a dedicated fryer for their steak fries so you get hot crispy fresh fries unlimited only wish their tortilla chips were gluten free and they had dessert options too.
I can finally eat fries and a normal burger with a bun and have no fear of gluten contamination causing my dermatitis herpetiformis rash - and I can have a normal dining out experience where I don't feel weird. Red Robin rules.
GF/allergen menu, GF bun, dedicated fryer for fries, fairly knowledgeable staff, all at Brookfield Square location.
Loved it! Finally able to eat out and have a burger with a BUN! Bun tasted great and was nice and soft! Also what impressed me is dedicated fryers for French fries!! Yum! People were knowledgable and friendly! And I did not get sick and I am very sensitive! Seemed to have a decent selection on the gluten free menu! Will be back again!
Brookfield location has GF buns now.
When I'm traveling where there is a Red Robin I have to eat there. Their burgers are consistently good at the many locations I've visited. This one had slow service and wasn't very clean but food was delicious as usual. Their gluten free buns are great.
Read their website on sources of their food. says they cannot guarantee if their suppliers change their ingredients without notice. Not reliable for celiacs.
They offered us an electronic menu that made allergen info easy.
Really helpful servers, give you an iPad where you check off things you cannot have, then you can see a real menu, I had the Ensenada Chicken prepared gluten free and it was very good. As a business traveler I typically go to chain restaurants for consistency.
They have an app that allows you to eliminate allergies from the menu. Then it shows items you can have and lists if there are sauces, ingredients, etc., that you can't have in that meal. They wrapped my chicken sandwich in lettuce like it was a bun and it was delicious.
If you have Celiac Disease this is not a safe place for you. The chance of cross contamination is too high. So disappointed in the service I had last time I was here which was on my birthday. I carefully explained to the waitress that I had Celiac Disease and I double checked that they did their very best to keep things separate. When she brought out my fries after I took one bite I realized they were not gluten free because they were covered in seasoning( he gf fries always come out plain) I told her that they were not gf and that I would need new fries. Instead of just apologizing and starting a new batch she fought me on the issue for a good 3 minutes telling me that she knew they were gluten free. But finally she said she would start a new batch. Well she never did bring it out. Not the birthday dinner I was hoping for. Not to mention I spent the rest of my birthday on the couch or in the bathroom.
Good food, I had the California chicken sandwich on a gluten free bun. The bun did not fall apart, which is a plus. Our server was great, he showed me the iPad with the allergy list where I was able to check off gluten and dairy and soy. It pulled up foods that I could have while avoiding those allergens. It showed me the food item and what would be eliminated or what substations could be made. After leaving the restaurant I started feeling like I do when I eat gluten. I won't be surprised if I vomit later today or get extremely constipated. DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU HAVE CELIAC!
Ate here for the first time since being celiac. Heather was my server and she was great. She brought over an iPad and pulled up the gluten allergen menu which pulled up everything I could eat and what to remove to make it safe for consumption. It also showed options such as lettuce wrap or gf bun. She explained there is a separate fryer for the fries. My meal came out clearly marked with colored toothpicks. I look forward to a return trip. Update July 2017: Red Robin gets it. Their buns are one of the few GF I will actually waste my calories on. Their gf fries are put in the oven and are so good. Great family option.
Just found out all the oil gets filtered by the same filtering machine. So the oil used to fry gluten free fries and then the oil used for onion rings go through the same machine. So there is no way to avoid cross contamination once the filtered oil gets put back in the vat. The burgers are tasty though
Glad they changed things so I can have a burger and fries!
Great gluten free buns for burgers! If you ask for the gluten free menu they bring you an iPad. I'd say they have more options than some.
I have celiac disease. I have been here several times--GF bun is amazing and food is so good I kept trying--but I get sick every single time. Once I found a crouton at the bottom of my salad dressing cup. The employees need better allergen/celiac safe education. The food is so good but I will never go back to this Red Robin and I'm very leery of other Red Robins now!
Don't have a dedicated fryer. There a few choices for protein and veggies, but until my little celiacs can partake in the bottomless fries, we won't likely return.
