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!!

    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
    • Thank you so much for responding, it's so hard to go on this journey of questions and Drs. I really appreciate the time you took to respond. God bless you 💖
    • Do you have copies of your blood test results? Can you post them? Don't forget to list the reference ranges. Is the TTG the only celiac test they did?  Do you have a copy of your pathology report? Get it if you don't. How many biopsies did they take & from what areas? Were you eating gluten right up until the biopsy?
    • I got them on the back side of my knees too. All the literature points out knees & elbows but doesn't mention the "behind the knee" portion of your leg. I eventually got them ON the knees itself but that was one of the last places to present. I also got them on the inside bend of my arm instead of the elbow and just like the knees, it eventually presented on my elbows. Not to be forgotten; the literature also states it can present anywhere on the body. If you found those links I've posted about how a dh biopsy is done correctly then print them out & take them with you to SHOW them. Any derm should be able to follow the directions or they should turn in their license.  As to them saying herpes, well duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, dh does have a herpes like presentation. That's why they call it dermatitis herpetiformis! Remember, they work for YOU, not the other way around. Insist. Make sure you're still eating gluten. Let us know how it goes. The best of luck to you!
