This is one of my favorite places to get a good burger.. the allergen menu on the iPad’s that they have is super easy to use. Always have great waiters & good food - plus you can’t go wrong with endless fries!

SWEET POTATO FRIES NOT GLUTEN FREE, FRIED IN SAME DEDICATED FRYER. SO OTHER FRIES NOT GF EITHER. READ PACKAGING. THEY HAVE WHEAT PRODUCT COATING. I have Gluten Ataxia. If exposed, it causes brain damage. I ate there several times and felt weird next day. Noticed balance slightly off. Thought I was tired. NOPE! Next time we went in I asked to see packaging for everything I ate. Their sweet potato fries are coated with the product out of Europe that falls under 20ppm, but is a wheat product. Never been back. Hate to think how much permanent damage they caused me. And Celiacs need to be careful, just cause you don't have symptoms doesn't mean that the low level inflammation won't lead to cancer per a prior Celiac Sprue President. FDA site says no product is allowed to be labeled as GF if it has a gluten containing ingredient. Though they haven't imposed regulations on restaurants yet.

This was our third visit to this location and they have gotten way better. They have GF buns that are better than average and have always made my daughter (Celiac) very happy. The fries were iffy at best on previous visits. My wife (gluten sensitive) complained in the past about feeling glutened. They now have a dedicated fryer for steak fries and this last visit was nothing but smiling faces. Be sure to go early. Wait times can be long for GF orders during the rush.

Love that they have gf buns for sandwiches and burgers. Their sweet potato fries are great gluten free too. One visit here I did get a regular bun... Luckily I recognized it as being too soft and squishy to be true gluten free bread and had the server double check back in the kitchen. They ended up preparing me an entirely new meal and did not charge me for it. I appreciated the efforts they took to fix the mistake, but it does make me a tad nervous.

The gluten-free menu here is pretty good compared to other places I've been to. Lots of different burger options. (I usually get the one with bacon and a fried egg on top - YUM!) They now feature a gluten-free bun at the Gurnee location and it's delicious! I love being able to have a normal burger alongside nice, hot steak fries from a dedicated frier and not have to worry. Sad there aren't really any appetizer or dessert options, but if you're looking for a good, inexpensive dinner, this is your place.

Zero Stars!!! Red Robins Gluten Free menu SUCKS!! It's honestly two burgers and a chicken breast and hummus. You're paying full price for their regular plate that comes with trimmings and sides for just meat. I DO NOT recommend eating there if you need gluten free.

Most red robins are pretty good with gluten. This location is very hit-and-miss. You have to double-check everything whether it's dine in or food to go. They really couldn't care less. We had eaten here quite a bit in the past but, the last two times, the food served to me has not been gluten free. If I wasn't paying close attention and hadn't checked thoroughly, I would have eaten it. We don't intend to go back.

Told the waiter I’m severely allergic to gluten (celiac) and asked him questions how the food is prepared. I ordered a lettuce wrapped burger and fries. Thank God I had my Nima Sensor. It detected gluten right away. I got upset and left to go to the bathroom. My dad told them to remake my food but I told him not to. Will not return. Broke my trust.

Appreciate that they have a dedicated gluten free fryer so I could have the fries too. They will serve burgers on a gluten free bun or wrapped in lettuce. The server was helpful, but I did have to go on the website to determine which items could be made gluten free due to no in-house gluten free menu. There are a lot of options and the food was good.

Burger came out with a purple pick in it, which the waiter said indicated it was gluten free. Upon opening the burger, we saw breaded onions in it. Questioned it. And it was indeed gluten inside the gluten free order we made. Don’t go here. Not safe.

Ordered takeaway online. Has an option to say you have a allergy and they have gluten free buns! I asked if the fries were from a dedicated fryer and they said yes. One star off because they said they can't confirm no cross contamination. We took a chance and did not get sick.

Since it has been a couple of years since the last review. This location has declined substantially. It is definitely not celiac friendly. No one seems to actually care about food allergies and the kitchen staff are horrible. If you go in the afternoon, you are almost certain to wait a long time and pretty well guaranteed to get glutened. Both my daughter and I have had food that glutened us. STAY AWAY IF YOU ARE CELIAC!

I have celiac and am wary of eating out. Our waitress Tonya was very knowledgeable and conscientious of my allergy concerns. Assured me they had a dedicated fryer, brought me a glove to prevent any cross contamination from using the digital menus, and even a new bottle of ketchup to use on my fries Fries are delicious! Will definitely return

Dedicated fryer means I’ve been seriously enjoying their fries lately lol. They also label all their menu items when you ask to see the allergen list. Their seasoning for fries is also clearly labeled gluten free. Love their burgers and the gluten free buns. Never had a problem and I’m a very sensitive reacting celiac.

I was given an interactive allergen menu to help navigate what to order. Lots of GF options. The waitress seemed unsure if the fries were cooked in a separate fryer but after talking to other staff they assured us it is all separate to avoid contamination. The food was really good and came out marked as the GF order.

We’ve eaten here quite a few times with great success. We have tried the chips and salsa app, and I’ve ordered a gf burger with gf bun and fries many times! It’s amazing to feel “normal” and eat safely. I Nima tested in the beginning to verify that it’s safe. But now I just enjoy since they take their allergy protocol very seriously. I’ve never gotten sick, and it’s a regular on our safe list.

I have Celiac. I called ahead and spoke with the manager. Dedicated fryer, standard change gloves/wipe down counter procedure, really understanding and well educated staff. No issues here! Only give four stars because they accidentally put cheese on my burger and I'm lactose intolerant lol. But that's not as big a deal as gluten for me.

Was excited to try a burger joint with a gluten free bun (bunless gets old!). The hostess was gluten free and gave me pointers, even stating to not be scared that the gluten free bun has gluten in it, since it's not dense and dry! The waitress was so accommodating, and each part of my meal was clearly marked with an allergy stick. Very impressed and will be back soon!

Burger can be done with a lettuce wrap or gf bun. Not all burgers are gf but I had the bacon cheeseburger on a gf bun and it was delicious. Looking forward to eating here again.

Thankfully, I had a good experience here. If you check their website, they do warn you about possible cross-contamination at the prep area for fries, but, because they have a dedicated fryer, I decided to order them and didn’t get sick. My waiter wasn’t super knowledgeable so he referred me to their website where you can filter menu options by allergy and tell you how how to modify your food accordingly.

Safety


How confident are you that this establishment takes safety precautions against cross-contamination?

— Somewhat

On Safety

The server was great. He asked whether I needed gluten-free because of preference. allergy or Celiac so that he could make sure the kitchen took proper precautions. They also do separate allergy-free fries. I'm not sure if they bake them or have their own fryer but I've eaten them multiple times and never got sick. My food has also always been marked for an allergy when it comes out.

Quality & Quantity


Is there a gluten-free menu?

— Separate gluten-free menu

How much of the menu is available gluten-free?

— Some

How would you rate the taste and quality of the gluten-free food you tried?

— Excellent

On Quality & Quantity

I love that you can get fries which a lot of places that offer gluten-free burgers or sandwiches do not do. Also, the bun was properly handled and was a nice soft texture. Some places just through them in the microwave from the freezer and they are chewy or tough which has not been the case here.

Best burger I've had since being diagnosed with celiac disease. Had a bacon cheeseburger with a gluten free bun. A lot of gf breads and rolls just crumble but this bun held up really well with good taste. They mark gf with a pick and have a dedicated fryer. Steak fries were really good too. The waitress was very informative and attentive about my needs

Not safe for celiac at this location. I asked if they have a dedicated fryer for French fries (as many locations do) and the incompetent server responded “they told us that gluten free is without salt.” I again reiterated the question about having a separate fryer for French fries and she repeated the same answer about salt. Clearly the staff has no allergen training whatsoever. My boyfriend asked the server how to check his rewards balance and she said she didn’t know. Not sure why Nisha has a job with no training or knowledge. When we first arrived, we waited nearly 10 minutes without anyone even acknowledging us at the front table. There were a handful of full tables but a mostly empty restaurant and several waiters either standing around in the back or ignoring us. Finally, a driver for grubhub had enough and went to the kitchen to make sure someone came out. Will not return to this location.
