Kudos To Red Robin - Redmond, Wa
0

8 posts in this topic

After being diagnosed with celiac, a friend told me that surprisingly Red Robin does a great job with gluten free. And they do!!

There is a gluten free menu, which describes what alterations are made to make the meal gluten free - including gluten free buns. The restaurant in Redmond has a separate work area, and my meal comes out on a plate, rather than the typical basket. We were told that the fries are prepared in their own fryer, so no worries of cross contamination. All servers seem to be well aware of what they need to do - and we even noticed on the bill, my meal has an "allergy alert" next to it.

We are so impressed - we've even signed up for the Red Robin card - which let's us earn burgers. I hadn't been to Red Robin since my kids were young - now they're grown, but my husband ( non-celiac) and I are regulars there!

Thank you for this post! Based on it, I'll try Red Robin today. Looking forward to that gluten free bun!

Ask next time you eat there as many of the Red Robin's now carry Udi hamburger buns. If they do, the kitchen staff is required to go through extra training on handling gluten free foods. They toast the buns but they are done separately.

I Love Red Robin--but never dreamt that they had a gluten-free menu! (I have not eaten out often in many restaurants!) :P Time to try them out! Thanks for the info!

The one in Renton at the Landing was horrible. The menu was a print out, claiming they had no buns, and said on the bottom that they couldn't promise there wouldn't be any cross contamination, so we didn't want to risk it.... I will make sure to tell my family that the Redmond one is a lot better then, but honestly, if I have to travel to get a burger, I'd rather head into Seattle and just go to Blue Moon Burgers, they are better (in my opinion) and have a lot more options for gluten-free. Even onion rings!!

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
