Red Robin: Gourmet Hamburgers and More

Blackend Bijou BurgerI’m always on the lookout for a decent burger.  While you can get a really good, no frills burger from Five Guys, you can get something a little more complex from Red Robin.  I’ll admit that this most recent visit’s burger (a Blackened Bijou Burger), while good, didn’t seem to match what I got the first time around – it could have benefited from a few more Angry Onions.  The menu also includes chicken sandwiches, some actual entrees, and a variety of drinks (including alcoholic drinks).

Watching your calories?  You probably know by now that your worst enemy when you’re counting calories is anything bread based … like, say, buns.  Erika got a Lettuce Wrap Your Burger which saves you those 250 or so calories by taking the bun away, and wrapping your burger in lettuce.  My Dad got one too; they both seemed to agree that it does make your burger a little harder to eat, but that it was interesting and quite good.  They also take the fries away and give you a side salad instead. So, if you have access to a Red Robin, I suggest you give it a go.  Both Erika and I came away from the meal feeling full, but not overly stuffed … which is odd when it comes to restaurants in general.  It was not an unwelcome experience, as feeling stuffed isn’t always that good.
