    Staff is knowledgeable. I got the breakfast egg sandwich with the gluten free English muffin as a substituted bun. No problem! Also, most of their milkshakes are GF

    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!

    Excellent service. Breakfast items were gluten free, but that’s true at most restaurants. It was nice that they had a gf English muffin available. I would not go out of my way to dine here just for the gf options.

    Wow! Pretty good burger for airport food! They offer gluten free hamburger buns or will wrap it in a lettuce wrap for you. The kitchen manager cane by to ask if I was celiac or intolerant. Said the fries are cooked in a shared fryer and offered a fruit cup, side salad or bag of chips as an alternative. Said he has the cooks change gloves and clean spatulas. Burgers are cooked on a separate grill and prepared in a separate clean space. I was impressed with his knowledge and his sense of concern. I felt extremely safe. Even told him about this app and he wanted to know the name since he had no idea it existed and thought it was “pretty cool”

    Cute place but I wouldn't call it celiac safe. I asked about the fries and they're made in the same fryer as breaded foods. The root beer float couldn't even be guaranteed safe, according to staff. I just let my boyfriend eat here (he isn't celiac) while I sat and drank water. Good review is because he LOVED his chili and hamburger, the view is great, and the waiter, Noah, was very friendly and courteous. He told me there were gf buns but I didn't take the chance because I'm 6 months pregnant.

    This particular location at the Carlsbad Outlets has gluten-free buns. Otherwise, there are no other clear gluten-free choices on the lunch/dinner menu. There is no dedicated fryer - I was confused by other locations' reviews and thought they had a dedicated fryer. So when I asked about gluten-free options for my daughter with Celiac, our server told me right away about shared fryers and that any fried food would not be safe. we ended up ordering a burger with GF bun and a side salad. The GF bun, while tasty, was still partially frozen. Side salad came out of the kitchen with the croutons on top. We promptly requested to re-make it, which they did right away and apologized. I'm giving this place 3 stars as opposed to 2 because the server really tried to accomodate us and seemed knowledgeable. I asked him to request that the kitchen take steps to minimize cross-contamination, clean out the grill, etc., and he was happy to oblige. I also really appreciated that he understood about shared fryers and told us right away. He also knew ingredients in sauces and helped us select a burger without gluten-containing ingredients.

    Now has a dedicated fryer for fries, we tested the fries with the Nima and they came out safe 😃, unfortunately we ordered the chicken sandwich with gluten free bun and that tested positive for wheat, probably from cross contamination on the grill, they grill the bun assuming with regular buns, we did not notify the wait staff, 👎 the chicken grill side came back positive for wheat 👎👎, otherwise the staff was pretty knowledgeable about gluten safety, another crappy day with celiac when ur starved

    Went here after reading such great reviews. Place was almost empty. Ordered burgers with gluten free buns. Stressed the gf MANY times. Also got fries and shakes. Again, we stressed the whole gf thing and the waitress even repeated it. We got our food and Intake a bite. The bun is unlike any gf bun I've ever had. Then I notice my daughters bun looks different, and hers is falling apart, as we have come to expect from most gf buns. I realize they have given me a burger with a regular bun! I call the server over and they go get a supervisor who removed my entire plate to go check it out. By this point I'm already feeling the impact...he comes back out and offers to get me a new burger and he acknowledges it was NOT a gf bun and he's not sure what happened. They Did comp my meal, but that's not enough to make me feel good about dining there again

    They have gluten free buns and if you ask will make fries in their own pan to avoid cross- contamination. They also will make shakes separately and hand mix. We visit often and they are always very aware and careful even though they will tell you they can't promise no cross-contamination. My son has never gotten sick and he is extremely sensitive celiac

    Very iffy today which was a shame as before it has been safe. Told by the waitress that their fries were gf, and fried in a separate fryer. I asked for a turkey blt on a gf bun. She said fine. When the food came out, I had salad with croutons on the plate and the sandwich did not look gf at all. So I checked and they had bought be out a normal one! Good job I checked. Also the fries are no longer gf. Then I was given a salad instead of fries- which on investigation had some dodgy sauce on a little bit, buried under lettuce leaves. I did not eat that! Eventually a gf turkey blt did come, it was ok and I wasn't ill.

    I wish they had gf cinnamon swirl French toast (he glutinous version is so wonderful!). Maybe one day. I ordered the eggs Benedict without the muffin and the manager not only checked to make sure it was GF, she took a picture of the ingredients so that I could read them. The Benedict was very tasty and I felt just fine after eating it :)

The kitchen cleaned the grill for us before cooking our burgers. The garlic fries were delicious. Will eat here again!

    When questioned about the fries the waitress said they were gluten free. Pressed further she said they were fried in the same fryer as breaded items but that "It's not a problem unless you're really sensitive." I ordered a Bleus Burger on a gluten-free roll with a side salad in place of fries. I'm not sure if I got a regular roll or if there was a cross contamination issue, but within an hour I was very ill. I would not recommend eating here if you are gluten intolerant or Celiac.

    It's basic diner food. There are only two specific gf options. The fries and the coleslaw are not gf, so the only sides are tomato slices or cottage cheese. The food is OK, but don't expect a lot of options.

    You only have 2 options (hamburger or turkey sandwich) if you don't want salad. Fries have gluten per the deep frier. They also have yummy gf bread. Not many choices but the burger on gf bread was huge and delicious. (Offered a side of cottage cheese instead of the fries.)
