The Red Robin Gourmet Cheeseburger is one of my all-time favorite menu items. It’s a classic burger with cheese, bacon, and BBQ sauce. It’s always cooked to perfection and so delicious. I recommend this burger to anyone looking for a great meal at Red Robin. The ingredients include beef, bacon, cheese, BBQ sauce, and a toasted bun. BBQ sauce is one of my favorite condiments, and the sauce here has a nice kick to it. Whenever I order a burger well-done, the cooks always make it correctly. The buns and veggies are always fresh and make eating a burger here a delightful experience.

The Royal red Robin brother comes with egg, American cheese, tomatoes, and flavorful hardwood smoked bacon. It is a big burger and it is my first choice whenever I am really hungry. It is a favorite amongst everyone that I know and is the perfect burger to share with someone.  The egg is always perfectly cooked and this burger has no problem filling me up. Sometimes I have to cut it in half and save the rest for later. It still tastes amazing if I have to reheat it back home. So if you want extra protein and killer taste, you must try this burger.


Towering Onion Rings

Red Robin takes onion rings to a new level. The Towering Onion Rings are a must-have appetizer for anybody who enjoys the classic onion ring as a snack. Your order comes with 13 crispy onion rings that melt in your mouth. Dip them in the yummy campfire Mayo or Ranch dressing. I prefer the campfire Mayo.  Sometimes I even put this mayonnaise on my burger because it’s so tasty. As much as I prefer fries, these onion rings sometimes force me to eat these with my burger instead. This is one of the few places that serve onion rings the way I like, so sometimes I must indulge.

Whiskey River BBQ Chicken

I love a good barbecue chicken sandwich and Red Robin does not disappoint. The first time I tried the Whiskey River BBQ chicken sandwich, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The chicken is so tender and the barbecue sauce has a nice kick to it. The burger comes on a toasted seeded bun with lettuce, fresh tomato, and crispy onions. I visit Red Robin for this chicken sandwich at least once a week. Normally, I would eat half of a sandwich this size and save the other half for later. However, the sandwich is so good, I always eat it all in one serving.


Banzai Burger

Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits, but I wasn’t sure if I would like it on a burger. When I first ordered the bonsai burger the smell captivated me and when I bit into it, I was immediately hooked. Generous slices of Sweet pineapple top a juicy teriyaki-glazed meat patty.  Fresh lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise complete the burger between a toasted seeded bun. The combination of the sweet pineapple with a savory burger is a must-try item. It is very filling and does not disappoint.


Bleu Ribbon Burger

The Blue Ribbon burger will set your taste buds on fire. The burger comes with crumbled blue cheese and an unforgettable tangy steak sauce. The extra flavor gets added by way of some zesty chipotle mayo and crispy onion straws. If you are hungry, this burger is definitely the thing to get. I had never thought of using blue cheese on a burger before trying this one. Of course, now I am hooked on blue-cheese burgers and order one whenever I can. I also love the steak sauce which compliments the meat and cheese so well. 


Clucks & Fries

I had no idea what to make of the name “Clucks & Fries” when I first heard of this menu item. I initially ordered it out of curiosity. To no surprise, the cluck stands for chicken. This dish consists of crispy golden chicken breast tenders with bottomless steak fries. To make things even better, the steak fries are bottomless. So, you will have no problem stuffing your face with this treat. It comes with ranch dressing, but it tastes so good on its own you don’t need to dip it in anything if you don’t want to.


Cowboy Ranch Tavern Burger

Cowboy Ranch Tavern burger comes with crispy onion straws, American cheese, lettuce, ranch dressing, and the famous Whiskey River BBQ sauce. I sometimes switch things up from my main favorites to feast on one of these. The burger is a good size with a nice blend of flavors.  The onion straws and BBQ sauce make a great combination on this burger. I usually don’t like ranch dressing on a burger, but a little bit does add extra tang that fits well with everything else. I never feel the need to get onion rings since the onion straws on this burger fulfill that craving. This burger goes nicely with a cold beer.

Creamy Artichoke & Spinach Dip

Ordering spinach artichoke dip at a restaurant is nothing new. This type of dip seems to be a common appetizer these days. However, Red Robin takes it to another level of delight. They make their spinach artichoke dip with the basic recipe as other places and add a little bit of bacon. The bacon adds some smoky flavor.  I have sampled many artichoke dips over the years and this is one of the best. Even if I’m not too hungry, I make sure there is some artichoke spinach dip on my item list whenever I go to Red Robin.


Mountain High Mudd Pie

Your typical burger or sandwich at Red Robin will fill you up. With that said, we still must make room for dessert at times. If you come here with a sweet tooth, order the Mountain High Mud Pie. This decadent dessert comes with a moist chocolate cake tart with vanilla ice cream and Oreo cookies. Additional temptation comes with fudge and creamy caramel on top of a chocolate cookie crust. It doesn’t stop there, as the pie sits in a pool of caramel sauce and chocolate fudge with whipped cream. The cake is a perfect treat to share. But if you eat it all by yourself, I’m sure everyone will understand!


Southwest Salad

Don’t worry, this amazing burger place understands the need for vegetables. When you are in a mood for something green, I highly suggest the Southwest Salad. It comes with avocado, beans, grilled chicken, jalapenos, mixed greens, and a salsa-ranch dressing topping it off. The salad portion is huge, so you may want to share with someone else. There may be room for a burger or dessert afterward. I love this salad because it is always fresh and filling. Sometimes I split it into two different meals.


The Southern Charm Burger

This yummy burger comes with candied bacon barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, onion, and an oh-so-good brown sugar glaze. Previously, I’ve only had a brown sugar glaze on ham. It is not something I thought of putting on a burger. I don’t know which one I love more on the burger, the brown sugar, or the candied bacon.  Either way, this burger may have changed my life. Red Robin manages to find top-shelf ways to combine sweet and savory flavors in a way that makes my taste buds dance. It is one of my favorite burgers on the menu. It truly does represent southern charm and cuisine.


Bacon Cheeseburger

While Red Robin has many gourmet burgers that make for a delicious meal, sometimes you may want to have a simpler version of the American classic. If you want something decadent but overpowering, I suggest the Bacon Cheeseburger. The bacon is nicely crisp and flavorful.  The burgers are always moist and come with simple lettuce, tomato, and mayo. I usually pair this burger with onion rings and a house salad.

Sometimes a simple salad will do when you want something light or a healthy add-on to your high-calorie burger. Order the house bottomless house salad for a fresh assortment of cucumbers, tomatoes, croutons, shredded cheddar cheese.  I often take advantage of the bottomless options because everything is so delicious, it is easy to keep devouring more and more salad. Plus, it is a healthy way to clear the palette after a greasy yummy burger. The salad is so fresh, enjoy it without any dressing.


Garlic Herbed Fries

I love french fries. Sometimes I eat my fries before finishing my burger. If you love fries as much as I do, you must sample the Garlic Herbed fries at Red Robin. They prepare these perfect fries with garlic parmesan butter and shredded parmesan cheese. These are by far the best herb fries I have ever had. They use a perfect amount of garlic without overpowering the fries, I often order this item by itself or pair it with the bottomless House Salad.
