Reading the website, I was surprised to see that Red Robin started outside of the University of Washington in 1940. I would think that it is the brainchild of a self proclaimed corporate marketing genius that is trying to latch onto a gourmet burger craze. Btw, note it is their 69th anniversary. Okay, I am immature.
What I Got: Bleu Ribbon Burger $9.00
Burger, steak sauce, Bleu Cheese, Onion Straws, Lettuce, Tomato, Zesty Chipotle Mayo, Onion Bun.
Okay, so I love onion buns and burgers. I really like a true chipotle taste and I always have a puree of chipotles in Adobo sauce in my fridge, however…
I hated this burger! The Bleu Cheese should be Monterrey Jack. I think that this was added on to the menu to have a Bleu Cheese option. The bun tasted like a whole grain bun with little onion flecks inside of it. If I can’t pick off onions on the outside, it is garbage.
Condiments were fresh and it was a decent size, but there wasn’t a lot of quality going on here. I didn’t see advertisements talking about the quality of the beef either.
I ordered garlic parsley fries and it was served as regular fries. As you can see, they brought the wrong fries and there were only seven fries included. I know that it is all you can eat fries, but to start with seven is lame.
The garlic parsley fries were not all all that garlicky and riddle me this…where is the parsley?!?!? In fact, where is the garlic? I couldn’t find any minced pieces and I think that it was a chem lab garlic oil.
Would I Buy It Again? No. After tip and drink, I probably spent close to $15 for this and it was not good at all. Looking for an awesome burger? Try Boogie Burger in Broad Ripple. Looking for a quick burger? Try Culvers, 96th St. Steakburgers or whatever else…
