Red Robin Review

Out shopping today with Pop and decided to try out the new Red Robin by the FSK Mall. It was only 11:40 but the place was already packed although we didn't have to wait for a table. It was incredibly LOUD with the music, people shouting, and the hostess announcing tables ready. It took a long time for our drinks to come and after they did, I liked my milkshake (nothing fancy just chocolate but great on a 100+ day). Lynn's tropical smoothie was not to his liking. It left an aftertaste.
Lynn had the Guacamole Bacon Burger; he said it was good but he could hardly taste the guacamole. I had the Bleu Ribbon Burger and I loved it. The onion bun, onion straws, chunks of bleu cheese, and chipotle sauce made it very tasty but when I checked the nutrition upon arriving home....AAAAGGGGHHHHH. I'm glad I didn't eat all the steak fries...basically, I don't like the plank fried potatoes. Even though they were hot and crisp, they are way too starchy. I had planned to ask for a different side but forgot in the chaos.
Burgers are way too big to eat and way more that needed for a single meal. Lynn and I could have easily shared one and still been satisfied. Although the burgers were good, the price was still a bit exorbitant...$10 for just the burger is a bit over the top.
All in all, we give it 3 out of 5 stars on the Rectorometer. Probably not going back with so many other places to try out.

My hubby and I were just at a RR too and the noise level was - well - deafening! :( Very sad for me - cause I'm getting too old for that level.
Good food - but I guess you're saying that it's calorie laden ... that is probably more true than not. ;)
