Red Robin Has A Gluten Free Menu!
0

11 posts in this topic

Tonight I was going to order a burger without the bun...until we noticed a gluten free bun option on the menu!! I was shocked. The waitress asked me if I had an allergy and I said yes, so she put a special allergy alert on my order. She told me they use gloves and cook the fries and burger in a separate area. I was actually in tears. This was the first "real" burger I've had in over a year. We live in California...I hope there are other Red Robin restaurants in other states so gluten-free people can enjoy! They just started doing gluten-free about 3 months ago. I now have a place I can go to for a great burger...it was really good.

I plan on writing a letter to the company...I am so glad more awareness is out there!!

Good to hear. How was the bun? Udi's bread is the best I have found, but it does not work very well as a hamburger bun, and Udi's hamburger buns SUCK!

The bun was great! I was surprised. I don't usually like the gluten-free bread so I have never bought gluten-free buns to make my own burgers. usually I order them at In and Out Burger with the lettuce. This was really good. They use gloves and take precautions to cook the burgers and fries separately.

Red Robin and Chipotle are the only 2 places my gluten-free, DF, EF, PN and TN free kids have eaten. RR is very allergy aware!

We eat there probably more than we should due to that bun! My waitress always would put down "no salt" on my daughter's fry order. I questioned that and told her that celiacs could have salt. She said, "The reg. fries are fried with something else (maybe onion rings??) and the "no salt" fries are fried in a seperate fryer. I think it is just standard that they do that when you order the gluten free bun. But you might want to ask your server just to make sure! We just add salt at the table. And btw- their awesome homemade ranch dressing is NOT gluten free. Bummer. And I, too, have filled out surveys thanking them for that menu. (Their gluten free menu is very extensive)

Nice to know there is hope, but I just checked and our local Red Robin isn't doing gluten-free buns yet. But they ARE making it easy to know how to order from the menu in order to be safe.

So glad awareness is growing!

Ours didn't advertise them on the menu until recently when they got new menus. They had them but you had to ask for them. Did you call or just look on the menu?

I live in Connecticut and ate there from their gluten free menu quite often back in 2010. Never got sick from them. But it's far away from me so I choose 5 guys now. But anyone who lives in Ct, we've got plenty of Red robins!:)

We just happened to go there. I had no idea they had a gluten-free menu until my step-daughter pointed out the gluten-free bun option. I was so glad she saw it. The waitress said the fries are gluten-free too, and they cook everything separately with gloves. My stomach was fine after the meal. So nice!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
