The Red Robin information and gift cards have been provided by Red Robin. All thoughts are my own.
It’s no secret that I have a child with a food allergy. A peanut allergy to be exact. If you’ve ever known someone with a peanut allergy, you know how difficult it can make planning food… especially eating out. It seems like everywhere you go you see disclaimers that the food “may contain traces of peanuts or peanut products”. It breaks my heart to have to constantly advice my child that they are unable to order what they would like to off the menu, due to their allergy… again.
Luckily, Red Robin had families just like us in mind. Red Robin’s Interactive Allergen Menu provides order recommendations based on the guest’s allergies. Once you have input your dietary restrictions, you will be able to view a menu tailored specifically to your unique needs. In addition, all team members are trained to modify your order to fit your needs. They even ring your food up with allergy alert clearly labeled, so that anyone preparing your food is well aware!
All allergen orders are prepared with a special allergen kit. These kits include tools that are used ONLY on allergen orders. The tools are purple, so that they are not confused with the other kitchen tools (purple is the color for allergen awareness). It is so refreshing to find a restaurant so knowledgeable about food allergies, and so concerned about the well being of their guest.
While this level of accommodation is uncommon in the food industry, it isn’t a surprise that Red Robin would step up to the plate, and far exceed expectations. They’ve been the Gourmet Burger Authority since 1969, when they opened their first location in Seattle, WA. Since then, Red Robin has developed a long-standing tradition of customizing meals to order, to make each guest’s meal more personal. Red Robin was founded on four core values; Honor, Integrity, Continually Seeking Knowledge, and Having Fun! With values like that, it’s no wonder we had such a great experience!
