Red Robin Makes Dining Out With Food Allergies a Little Easier

By | May 12, 2015

Food Allergies?  That's not a problem with Red Robin's Interactive Allergin Menu.
It seems like everyday, I meet another family who is dealing with food allergies.  I myself am dairy intolerant and I have a daughter who can’t eat gluten.  Planning a menu for our family is challenging, and eating out can be downright impossible.  Before we go to a restaurant, we have to find the menu online to see what we can have and what we should avoid.  However, not all online menus include ingredient lists.  In that case we have to hope that our waiter is knowledgeable enough about the menu options to help us decide what is safe to eat.

Fortunately our food sensitivities aren’t life threatening, so if we are served gluten or dairy, we will just be uncomfortable the next day.  For many people this is not the case though and exposure to certain foods can cause a severe reaction and can even be life-threatening.

Despite the growing number of people affected, our family has discovered that most restaurants don’t deal well with food allergies and sensitivities.  So I was thrilled to learn that Red Robin restaurant acknowledges that food allergies can be difficult for families and has come up with a way to help.

Red Robin has a couple of great tools to help families with food allergies know what is safe to eat – their Interactive Allergen Menu online and their Red Robin Customizer App.

Since we knew in advance that we would be eating at Red Robin, I chose to decide in advance what I would order via their website.  I was happy to discover that Red Robin’s Interactive Allergen Menu was so simple to use.  It literally just took me a couple of minutes to find what menu items were acceptable.

You can find the Interactive Allergen menu by going to RedRobin.com and hovering over “Our Food”.  Click on the Customizer Hub and then choose the Build a Customized Allergen Menu option.

Food Allergies?  That's not a problem with Red Robin's Interactive Allergin Menu.

You start by checking off any ingredients you want to avoid.  Since I get nasty sinus headaches anytime I have milk products, I checked the dairy box.  They also have the option to search the menu for items that don’t include gluten, eggs, seafood,nuts, and soy.

Food Allergies?  That's not a problem with Red Robin's Interactive Allergin Menu.

You can then search by menu category to discover which foods are suitable for your food allergy or sensitivity.  The Interactive Allergen Menu will tell you which menu items are ok as-is and also tells you which menu items are ok with modifications.  For example:  I browsed the salad menus and discovered that if I want to avoid all dairy products, I can have any of the salads, but I need to request that they be made with no cheese or croutons.

Food Allergies?  That's not a problem with Red Robin's Interactive Allergin Menu.

If there are substitutions possible, the Interactive Allergen Menu will alert you to that as well.  If you click on the menu item, it will bring up a list of ingredients.  If there are any suitable substitutions, it will have a “Click for Acceptable Options” button next to it.  Like in the case of the crispy chicken salad, there is dairy in the breading.  So the interactive menu suggests that you ask for the salad to be made with grilled chicken instead of the breaded chicken.  In my case, I knew I wouldn’t have an issue with the small amount of dairy in the breading, so I wouldn’t need to make that substitution.  However, it’s very nice to have that information should my milk intolerance worsen.

Armed with the information gathered from the Interactive Allergen Menu, I arrived at Red Robin knowing exactly what I was going to order.  My mouth was already watering at the thought of a yummy Crispy Chicken Salad (minus the cheese) and a Freckled Fruit Salad on the side.  I had neglected to look up which of the salad dressings didn’t contain dairy, but that didn’t turn out to be a problem.  My waiter was happy to go to the kitchen and confirm that their Italian dressing didn’t have any milk in it.

We had no problem making special requests when ordering our food. Red Robin trains all their staff to deal with food allergies and sensitivities, so they are more than happy to accommodate special requests. In the grand scheme of things, my dairy sensitivity is pretty mild, so other than leaving some ingredients off, my food doesn’t require any special treatment in the kitchen.

I ordered my salad with no cheese and no bacon (a matter of preference).  Our food arrived quickly and as we requested.  Since the waiter knew a food intolerance was involved, he even came back after we started eating to verify that everything was ok with my salad.

If you have more serious food allergies than I do, Red Robin team members are trained to handle that as well. They have several precautions in place to ensure that the kitchen staff is aware of food allergies. The cooks use special allergen kits that are used on allergen orders only to avoid your food being contaminated with anything that would cause a reaction. Unlike other restaurants, Red Robin takes food allergies very seriously and wants to make sure you have a pleasant dining experience.

In this day and age where food allergies are affecting more and more families, it is nice that Red Robin has made it simple to find acceptable menu choices.  If you or a member of your family are dealing with food allergies, I encourage you to give Red Robin’s Interactive Allergen Menu a try.  Food allergies are a hassle to be sure, so it is nice that Red Robin is trying to make things a little easier for those of us who have to deal with them on a daily basis.

    I’ve dined out less than 3 times since becoming gluten and dairy free (didn’t know I was intolerant and had a huge host of health issues that dramatically decreased when I stopped eating the foods). Turns out I’m ridiculously sensitive to cross contamination, despite talking with the chefs personally all three times I still got cross contaminated. With as much bread and butter that flows out of Red Robin’s kitchen, I personally, would not trust even the most dedicated and understanding server or chef. It’s too much of a risk for me. For people who are merely avoiding gluten for dietary reasons or whose intolerances aren’t so severe I think this app is an incredible tool. I’m quite pleased that Red Robin has special food allergy kits though, if I’m jonesing bad enough to eat in a restaurant I think Red Robin’s precautions make that idea seem slightly more plausible… If I get brave enough, I think I might give it a try.

But there have been times when food contaminated with eggplants or have the ingredient in the meal that’s not noted has triggered his allergic reaction. A list of ingredients in Red Robin’s dishes will give more peace of mind when eating there.

    With my husband and a daughter who are allergic to lactose , my youngest is allergic to strawberries, and I’m allergic to beans and lemons it is very hard to eat out where there is no substitutes and we eat out less. The biggest issue is school lunches since they do not substitute for the lactose allergy well so I’ve had a sick kid due to them not looking at preparation methods like how they make breadings stick or cornbread and still say it is ok for her to eat.

    My second daughter is extremely allergic to Red Dyes. She carries an epi-pen. It’s a pain to have to ask the waitress, then wait for her to go to the kitchen, the come back and tell us if a food is safe. You also have to trust that the waitress is asking and that who she is asking is actually looking up the ingredients! This would be so much easier and safer..

    We don’t have food allergies in my house, but my sons best friend does! He’s gluten free and it’s so hard to feed him, let alone take him to a restaurant! I’d love to go and not have to worry about what he’s going to get!

    Two kids have sprue and need to avoid gluten, so it’s difficult to eat fast food. When workers are rushed and you ask for a burger without a bun, I’m always afraid that they just removed the bun from a burger and gave us that, which would make the kids ill. Nice to see a fast food place making a real effort to accomodate food allergy folks

    I have a friend with a citrus allergy. We are careful where we go to eat. She can’t go to anyplace with seafood since the potential for contamination is high. She has to go to the hospital if she reacts. It’s very important when the waitress hears no lemon in the water or tea, please no lemon. And don’t just take the lemon off, she can still react.

    We have struggled in the past with gluten and it was terribly hard to find anything satisfying to eat when we went out. This interactive tool would have been great since I would not have needed to rely on often, under-trained servers to know what was and was not included in meals and ingredients.

    We are fortunate in our family that we don’t have allergies at this point.

Certainly with serious allergies that can be life threatening you simply can’t go to restaurants without precautions taken in the event of a reaction.

    We always have to disrupt our dining pleasure to ask about allergens in products on the menu. What makes it worse is it turns into an ordeal as the server doesn’t know the ingredients or how the food is prepared, and often whoever is in the kitchen has a don’t really care attitude, or sometimes the original packaging has been thrown away on like a breading. By the time all is said and done, we are exhausted from the ordeal to get simple questioned answered, and have had to wait an extra 1/2 hour before ordering. It’s like pulling teeth getting an answer and when you do, it is a so so answer and one that you cannot really rely on.
