Default Red Robins???

I saw RR mentioned on another post on here the other day and never paid much attention because I had never heard of them before... anyhow tonight I had to make a detour on the way home from work and past one.

My questions are they any good, average or a no-no? also are they expensive? I looked at their web site they had a menu but no prices are we talking Applebees kinda prices or more like planet hollywood prices? Hubby loves a good burger and they sell fish and chips so it would be some where new for us to try.

Thanks Patrick

Doesn't sound too pricey... maybe we will give them a try sometime.

Basically the same generic crap as all the other chains. Ah, the smell of Sysco food service....

I love them myself and recommend them. They have a large range of burgers, good portions and reasonable prices. It's not all burgers either. I say stop by and decide for yourself.

Only eaten in one once and it was ok. I'd eat there again. A burger is pretty much a burger. I don't understand why everybody raves about in n out burgers. There nothing extra special.

The Bailey's Milkshake at RR is fantastic.

They're a dime a dozen around my house. The burgers are pretty good and my kids seem to like it. I second the Whiskey River BBQ burger which is indeed tasty (and about 1000 calories).

I don't know why people always rave about In-and-Out. Good burgers, but certainly not the best I've ever had.

Best burger @ $2 a pop. And they're also a pretty ethical company, too. A comparison between them a McD is like a comparison between Wally World and Costco. So you can feel good eating them as well.

I love Red Robin, the food is really good at a reasonable price. The food tastes fresher than most other places & you can mix & match a lot. There salads are huge, so you could just split one or ask for half, they've done that for us before. The fish & chips are great too!

Thats what me and the ball and chain do...we split the burger (its very common there as they are bloody huge).

Then its only 500 calories each (not including the fries)

Mmmmm I love Bailey's, that sounds nice... probably has a 1000 calories to match the 1000 in a burger tho

Sounds like I will have to try RR sometime
