Though my server answered all of my questions and suggested options as the fries are not made in a separate fryer, I got sick immediately after eating here from cross contamination.

GLUTEN FREE BUNS. They’re Udi’s. A bit crumbly, they fell apart but still good. The fries are not gluten free, there are fruit cups as a side instead.

While they did have a gluten free bun, my food was undoubtedly cross contaminated. Tasted good while I was eating it, but it made me sick later

Im being generous with my star rating because there are not a lot of options for us, meal-wise, at the airport. Ruby’s (though not marked on menu) has gluten free hamburger buns so you can get a burger or sandwich, or substitute for toast with your breakfast. They also offered to give me fruit instead of toast with my eggs which I appreciated.

They’re not knowledgeable about celiac. The waitress said “My daughter used to have celiac and would get bad hives. But she outgrew it”. When asked if the chili was gluten free, she said “No because it has beef and beans”. She clearly did not know what she was talking about

Ended up playing it safe with the chicken Caesar salad which was surprisingly good.

There is no gluten free menu, and I didn’t ask the servers about gluten free options or cross contamination. But I was able to eat the chili without a reaction, and it was filling and warm.

They no longer have a gluten free menu and can't guarantee gluten free items.
