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!

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!!

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
