Had outstanding service at some good RR just like you.

Some are franchised and just don't care

I always recommend calling ahead first you'll know by the way they answer your questions whether or not they are, gonna be good:

I have found excellent responses from corporate every time I've written

Red Robin is one of our "go to" places here in Toledo area. Both locations are great & I just ask for their food allergen menu when I enter. They bring one of their updated ones printed from online that covers all the major food allergens & what can be ordered. Asking for the specific menu from the hostess is my 1st step in letting them know I have special food allergen needs. They alert the wait staff who we have found to be well trained. Once I came across a trainee who was going to take my order without writing it down... guess he figured he was young & likely thought he had a great memory! :P I kindly requested he please write my order down as I could become VERY ill if it wasn't sent into the kitchen correctly. He pulled out some paper & didn't take long for the manager to arrive at our table to make sure of my order. ;) Was the only time I had even a smiggle of an issue with wait staff at RR before or since. If I ever have questions the staff is knowledgeable & thoughtful enough to recheck with the manager if they are in doubt about something they question or I ask about. I'm ovo vegetarian but hubsters loves a good burger... I don't usually eat french fries so that is where I MAJORLY indulge (sometimes at least 2 reorders) in their bottomless fries. If I've not quite hit my veggie needs that day then I'll also have a small side salad. However, my heart sings with my fill of RR's fries (sans Red Robin seasoning, of course). Know others have had a less that positive experience at times but we have found it consistently a safe place, as long as one calls ahead with questions on dedicated fryer, etc. plus allows the staff know kindly their needs when entering. You can go on their website & sign up for a Red Robin Royalty card or get one @ local RR then sign up on net. You'll get RR e-mails re: specials, notices of new menu items & you even get a FREE Gourmet burger for your birthday! I entered hubsters birthday so we're heading there next month to "celebrate". This month it's an "out of pocket" visit to Biaggi's for a gluten-free dairy-free pizza for my special day! Enjoy... life is just tooooo short!

So far I have been at various Red Robins in California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho and had excellent service at all. I usually ask for the kitchen manager just to be sure that they use separate fryers, etc. Most of the RR's use Udi's buns. It's a treat!

Had the worst restaurant experience of my life in a Red Robin, but it's nice to hear that they aren't all terrible.

Even if the food had been gluten free, the crumbs all over the table, touching the clean silverware, definitely weren't. Eeww!

My local RR is one of my go to places (Burlington NC). When I tell the server I need my food to be gluten free, they are always on top of it, the kitchen manager always comes out to check on me no matter how busy they are and I have not gotten sick from eating there. I love that they have a dedicated area to cook and prepare my food and I don't worry about cross contamination.

    • New to this gluten-free life
      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr
    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt

      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.
