Red Robin... Yuuummmmm!

14 posts in this topic

I went to Red Robin in Miami, FL, with my celiac daughter. They offer any of their burgers on a Udi's gluten-free bun AND offer completely gluten-free french fries!! I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed that meal!! The server told us that kitchen staff and servers are schooled very seriously on their gluten-free options.

 

There IS hope!!

We ate at Red Robin for the first time in 4 years. They have improved so much on their gluten-free options and the way they handle it all! We were on vacation, and ate there 3 times in Utah, and now have sense eaten at our local one. The management, servers, and cooks all did a great job!  The fries are fried in a seperate fryer (at least in Provo, Ut and in Tempe,AZ) The hamburgers were really good.  The buns are Udi's! So good!  We are sensitive to cross contact, and we explained that each time we ate, and we never got sick.  When we were vacationing, it was nice to be able to order "to go" and pick it up and eat it while we were at family get togethers where their was food.  We will continue to dine there.  

 

They did have a couple of salads, many hamburgers, a couple of chicken sandwich options, but not dinner entree options. Many sides were gluten-free also!

red robin - yummmmm!  i think i have eaten out 4 times in the past 3 years, so thought we would try it.  and it's right in my favorite area to shop :)  i was nervous as a cat!  but they did a good job and everything was delicious.   the udi's bun must have been a different recipe than the hamburger ones i have gotten at the store.  i was a little wigged out when they toasted my bun, but the server came right over when she saw my distress and assured me that it was toasted under a salamander on a separate plate.  it's been over 2 days and not one sign of glutening - not even a smidge of a headache.  i cannot tell you how happy this makes me - i'm trying to be all cool, like, no big, to the rest of the world - but you all understand that just this little convenience that i used to take for granted is so awesome to have back!  i can go shop, HAVE LUNCH, with other people (WOW!!!!!!!)  without sitting in the corner eating my chex!!!  ;)  and they had (omgosh) crappy wine but i didn't go there to *drink*

 

husband pointed out to me on the receipt that under my order (in big letters) it was printed "ALLERGY ALERT" - i have seen this chain off the interstate while traveling, so would also be nice to take a break and eat some trips.  happy, happy, happy, happy! :D

It is always nice to have a place on the safe list for when you are out of the house.  Thanks for the reviews, everyone.

The hostess seemed a bit bewildered on the gluten free subject but I will say that our server seemed to be on top of the subject. I am so happy that the wifey has found another place that she's comfy with. :)

I was told today that the Red Robin seasoning has gluten. I'm fairly new to gluten-free so can someone tell me which of the listed ingredients (if any) is the culprit? The label doesn't indicate gluten...

 

Salt, Spices (incl black pepper, celery seed, cumin, oregano, sage), dextrose, dehydrated garlic and onion, paprika, autolyzed yeast, dehydrated tomato, hydrolyzed soy protein (carmel color), natural flavor (smoke). CONTAINS SOY

It doesn't look like it has any. The problem might be that, when a restauruant does gluten-free correctly and goes for certifications, there are certain standards that must be met. One of them is that they have to repeatedly check with suppliers about the gluten-free status of foods that they buy. Red Robin may have decided it is too hard to assure a consistent gluten-free spice mix. ( right or wrong). My BIL looked into certification for his restauruants and decided that was something he didn't want to do - guarantee a food from another company was gluten-free. It's easy to guarantee meat its gluten-free as they are buying pure meat or pure lettuce.

It does NOT contain gluten. I used to work at a Red Robin and many cooks and servers were confused about that because the seasoning used to not be on the gluten free menu, but was added back a couple years ago. Red Robin is very up to date about their allergy menu, and updates it regularly. If they can't guarentee something, they won't put it on the menu, but the current allergy menus say the seasoning is okay. Cooks and servers however, got used to saying it wasn't safe and kept saying it. It drove me crazy when I worked there! I eat it everytime I'm there though and have never reacted.

Its also left off fries to make it easier to identify which are allergy fries and which aren't, because its an easy difference to spot.

Thanks for the clarification.  It is a good reminder to always follow the most up to date info directly from the company.

I also had a great experience at Red Robin in Salt Lake City, UT. The server was incredibly knowledgeable, the fries were cooked in a dedicated gluten-free fryer, and I didn't get sick.

 

Just wish they had one where I live.

Red Robbin is the best.  That is where we usually end up when eating out because I know I can have a great meal and not get sick after.  I haven't tried the gluten-free buns because I prefer mine wrapped in lettuce, and love the french fries.  I can even get a gluten-free beer :) .

I tried Red Robin's for the first time and was very impressed! I don't eat meat, so they made me a specially made veggie sandwich on their gluten free bun (avocado, red onion, pickle, tomato, lettuce) and I had their yummy steak fries. Their handling practices are excellent!

 

They carry the allergy orders separately and even put them on a different colored plate, to distinguish.

They are excellent.  In all of the different states we have visited I have had nothing but a postitive experience.  Out Back is also an excellent chain as if PF Chang.

    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I'v posted on here b4... 6 yrs ago I was diagnosed as severely gluten intolerant. ( they were kinda shocked that test for celiac was negative) anyway my symptoms went away up until a few months ago. I went to the gi doctor and they said I can't have dairy or fructose.. * I found that out yesterday, I thought my tests for dairy was neg but guess it was pos. And I had no clue about the fructose*..    Anyway is it possible to have all these I tolerances? It's not making since to me.... also if you experience same thing what can I eat!! All I had today was grilled chicken and rice because it was on my lost from gi doctor... I'm a college student so I need easy quick stuff as easy as I can have it now I guess.. also is almond milk ok to have and coconut milk? I'm very confused on the fructose part.. dairy I'v been of for 6 weeks.... my doctor sent a referl over to a diatrition doctor but I want stuff to get me by until I get in. I don't even know what to look for all the research I'v done is just confusing me even more since different websites say different things..... thank you in advance.. I'm trying to gain weight I was gaining the first few yrs of being gluten free but I went back word and stuff went down hill again... 
    • Toblerone
      I don't eat chocolate often, but I have never had a gluten reaction to Toblerone. I trust it to be gluten-free.
    • So I've been glutened....
      I am so sorry for how your feeling.  I can sympathize; over time I notice I couldn't have any type of gluten free products.  I read that since you don't have villi in your small intestines you have no defenses, meaning even the tiniest bit of exposure causes a flare up.  I even have to be careful when I purchase products by reading the labels to ensure it says manufactured by a nut, soy, milk and wheat free facility.  Be very careful, unfortunately
    • Symptoms despite strict gluten-free -- new here
      I have been reading a lot about leak gut syndrome which is new to the medical community in the sense that they don't know how to manage it.  If (you are female) make sure to do a yearly pap and uterine check to ensure there is no issues there.  If you are not a female then definitely confirm with an endoscopy if your small intestines are still damaged.  I am looking into doing the leaky gut diet to see if it will help, the book I am reading is "Eat Dirt" by Dr Josh Axe.  Especially since I notice anytime I am exposed to gluten by accident my symptoms are worse each and every time.  I know get severe back and rib cage pain, with bloating, gurgling and diarrhea with severe nausea.  I am willing to try anything and I am now reading this book and applying the diet to see if I can heal my intestinal lining.
    • Help
      Ok so I had my colonoscopy & endoscopy last Thursday. Don't get results until July 13th as GI is on vacation. I've had bad pain in my lower left abdomen that wraps around to my lower back as well for the past 4 days..even hurts to touch lightly. Went back to the ER & they did an ultrasound & CT scan. The Doctor said that I have "prominent" lymph nodes in the area that is painful as well as thickening & inflammation of my Sigmond colon? Um ok what is that all about? Kind of freaking out over the whole swollen lymph nodes thing. Has anyone ever dealt with this before? 😒

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
