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!

    • Cheetah, We all have to make our own health decisions based on our individual circumstances.  There is not any “one size fits all” approach.  ☹️In your daughter’s case, she was asymptomatic.  I also would find it hard to believe that she had celiac disease despite confirmed biopsies and antibodies tests.  I get the denial.  I just had anemia that was disguised by a genetic anemia.  I was shocked at the suggestion of celiac disease.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 and I knew exactly what the treatment meant — gluten free for life.  A total game changer.   Because we have bought our health insurance for over 20 years, we have lived through the times that I was uninsurable due to my Hashimoto’s, Rosacea and toe nail fungus (yes, that is right).    I never went without, but I could not freely jump from plan  to plan.  My premiums were higher than my hubby’s.  So, we worry that health insurance could change and I would be uninsurable again.  (Did I mention that our annual premium is $24,000?) However, the genetic test can be invaluable but is mostly used to help rule out celiac disease.  There are other genes associated, but they have not been studied well.   “So far, scientists have identified over a dozen possible non-H.L.A. genes that may be associated with celiac disease, but whether these genes actually play a role remains to be seen.”  (Sheila Crowe, now head of the American GI Association).   https://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/genetic-testing-for-celiac-disease/ The antibodies test, in conjunction with the biopsies is the best means of diagnosing celiac disease to date.  The blood test is the least reliable as there are false positives (rare).    It is hard to dispute villi damage.  Too bad your Aunt did not get a biopsy, but understandably, an endoscopy can be costly if you lack insurance and there are many other reasons, so many are forced to forgo this procedure.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/   It is unfortunate that we must weight the risks and benefits of everything.    
    • Kirsty, in my experience, being ‘gluten light’ is not helpful. I think it doesn’t make any sense tbh – it does more harm than good. The withdrawal period is very different from being gluten-free long term. The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely unpleasant but they are temporary! Let’s say 4-6 weeks. I personally was feeling like a drug addict or an alcoholic in rehab at the time. I was having all kinds of withdrawal issues – one of them was extreme hunger and unusual stomach cramps caused by hunger. I had to eat approx. every 2 hours – otherwise I would get very dizzy and lightheaded. It felt as if my body was finally getting the types of foods it needed (= gluten free) and wanted these ‘right’ foods constantly.   The fact that my body viewed gluten as a drug and was addicted to it was a proof in itself for me that I am gluten intolerant. Let’s say I wouldn’t eat any potatoes for 2 or 3 weeks – nothing would happen. Often the types of food we love the most, crave and can’t live without are the very types of food we are intolerant and addicted to. If you’re not a diabetic, the hypoglycemia could resolve completely on the gluten-free diet.   My advice would be read about gluten withdrawal and don’t let it discourage you.
    • I know this thread is eight years old, but I'm bringing it back because ingredients have (very likely) changed since 2009. Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls still don't list gluten, wheat, etc. But they did give my mom and I terrible stomachaches. I know the scientific method calls for repeat experiments but we don't really feel like it. However, I will say we usually stick to a strict gluten-free diet (only eat if it states gluten-free or if there's no way it contains gluten; fruit, veggies, etc) So it's extremely unlikely it was anything else. These were just a risk we took because there's so few explicitly gluten-free quick meals- we both work long-hour jobs and have school so quick meals are very helpful. TL;DR: They are very likely NOT gluten-free. Just because it doesn't say gluten/wheat in the ingredients doesn't mean it's not present. Call me paranoid, but I feel it's a good rule.
    • Victoria. Yes I got tested for Addison’s but passed. The first test I barely passed. I have had adrenal issues for a while. Adrenal fatigue, but not advanced. I always had a lot of food intolerances. But gluten was fine. Histamine and salicylates where a problem though. Mast cell activation syndrome. In hindsight possibly caused by Lyme and my genetic makeup. Then I tried psych meds and they put me on valium to counteract startup side effects. I actually had a paradoxical reaction, not side effects. And after waiting that out I could not stop valium at once. I went to a very heavy withdrawal process for a year. That is when my mast cell actvation syndrome gt way worse and I became gluten intolerant. Had hardly any foods left. And because the withdrawal of gluten was so heavy, I could not go through with it fully. I hoped it would just go away after withdrawal was over. But I still have this limited diet and am gluten intolerant 2,5 years afer withdrawal. But the withdrawal process really hurt my adrenals and my nervous system. I can’t even tolerate most supplements. I guess the valium withdrawal and damage it did is also the reason that stopping gluten gives such bad withdrawal.
    • Read this about the benefits of having a celiac disease diagnosis.  It is written for doctors, but it is very useful.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/
