The Ruby’s location in Corona Del Mar does NOT have a dedicated fryer like the location in Laguna Beach. They said they could NOT promise that there wouldn’t be cross-contamination. She checked and said the chicken tenders had changed recently but should still be gluten free. We left because it wasn’t worth the risk.

Additionally, we walked in at 7 on a Saturday night and were seated within 5 minutes but the table was sticky and we didn’t see a waitress for 35 minutes.

Ruby’s has recently launched a new Gluten Free offering! They have a delicious and truly gluten free recipe for their chicken strips. They are using fresh, not frozen, organic chicken and a rice flour based breading. Best part- these are cooked in a dedicated fryer, not shared with other menus items that aren’t GF! Supposed to be available in other locations very soon!

We used to LOVE their GF chicken fingers and fries as a family that rarely gets food like that. They took the GF chicken fingers off the menu.

GF buns still available.

Fries are GF in a fryer that is ONLY used for the GF fries.

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.

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.

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.
