Red Robin burgers

There is a chain of restaurants here in Northern California (anywhere else???)called Red Robin. They make awesome hamburgers!! I have given up eating the 'fast food' burgers (McDonald's, Burger King, etc) and love these more 'restaurant type' places. They have seasoned fries that come with the burgers, which I don't really care for. But the burgers are awesome...and so are the onion rings!!!

    I believe Red Robin is nation wide, they do make a decent burger that feeds my necessity for red meat.

    We had one near us in the High Desert of SoCal. I found the place to be a bit over-priced (in the Fuddruckers league) for what was served. That was several years ago. The 'rest' of the pack might have caught up by now.
    My biggest grip was the blaring music that hammered you before you even entered the building. A couple of tries was all I would give it, then we looked for calmer locations.

    My experience at a Red Robin was very unpleasant. They only cook their hamburgers one way . . . . . . burnt! So if you like eating hockey pucks, you'll enjoy the hamburgers at Red Robin. Peace.

    They have Red Robin restaraunts in Seattle, I think up in Bellingham, too.

    The burgers there are spotty, either they're just great or inedible, rarely in between the extremes. If you order any burger at one of them out here, you get endless fries that are either seasoned WAY too much or totally unseasoned.

    Way to overpriced for what you get, IMHO. At least here in KC

    We have one here in Wilmington. I tried it not long after getting into town, haven't been back. I found the burger extremely greasey. We're talking grease running out of sandwhich, " /> I'm not even talking about the fries, they were that bad!!

    I've gone with coworkers, just to keep the peace. But I just hate that "massively overstuffed burger" thing -- with the fries or fried onions or whatever and everything else on the burger. It reeks of gluttony.

    I will say that they have a novel and effective way of serving onion rings: on a cone of steel wire, stacked like a toddler's stack'em toy. That way, they stay crisp. Nice idea.

    We have one in Amherst, NY which is always crowded. I have to agree, their menu items are over priced.

    I like the Roast Beef Burger - What a beef and cheddar would be if you did it at home. I also liked the Carnitas burger when I was craving a BBQ sandwich. The noise level is usually quite high at the one in Ann Arbor, but I always had friendly service and good food. Prices were about the same as all the other sit down places in the area. I thought the appetizers were over priced, but the spinach-artichoke dip was good and came with all kinds of dippers for your almost $8.00

    Haven't been to Red Robin in awhile.The one in Live Oak,Tx by me
    is pretty good.The burgers aren't burnt or overly greasy.Fries are just right,and the cobb salad I had one time was very good.
    They have tv's going and music,so it can be a bit much,but the place is clean and service is friendly.

    My only experience in Raleigh NC was very positive. Had a very good burger.
    Living in the Savannah area I am very familiar with overpriced food so it did not seem too expensive to me. The unlimited fries , which were quite good, made it more of a deal. I will try Red Robin again when I am near one.

    The Red Robin in La Quinta CA was pretty good for a chain. I have eaten there maybe 30 times over the last few years. We usually went there when nobody could decide what they really wanted to eat. When I really wanted a good greasy burger I went to Fatburger by the Palm Springs airport. I gotta go hide the forum police are close by.

    I'll tell you what...there is a thread on Red Robin already and it's here in the Lunch & Dinner Forum-Hamburgers. People need to do a search before posting new topics.

    From now on everyone needs to start a thread asking if there is already a thread regarding the topic they may want to start a thread about. I mean there are only about 1000 topics that are already covered and it would be a shame to have to threads about the same subject started by 2 different paople about the same subject especially if the person startingt the ladder of the 2 threads is fairly new to the forum. now lets get this straight before someone gets an eye poked out or someone reads a duplicate forum when they dont have the time.
