Fast Food Corner

If you're hungry for a burger, you have lots of options ... sure, you can go to McDonalds, Burger King, Hardees, Wendy's ... choices are endless. However, if you have some time, and you enjoy actually eating the food AT the restaurant, may I suggest Red Robin? Sure, they're not nearly as abundant as the other "fast-food" restaurants, but if you have one within 1/2 hour of your home, you HAVE to go ... trust me, you'll thank me later.

The fries are steak fries ... which are not really my favorite. But, they are bottomless, so if you really like steak fries, you'll love Red Robin.

But, the burger choices are fantastic - from the Banzai Burger (marinated in Teriyaki and pineapple slices as a topping), to 5 Alarm burger with many different types of peppers, you'll never get tired of the burgers. My personal favorite is the Royal Red Robin Burger - "This is the aristocrat of all burgers because we crown it with a fresh fried egg. In addition, topped with three strips of hickory-smoked bacon, American cheese, crisp lettuce, tomatoes and mayo." I took that directly from the menu.

Also, they have a tower of onion rings ... which is a nice appetizer if you have a group of people. The only annoying thing is the actual Red Robin mascot ... we ate there about a year ago, and this mascot was there as some sort of "promotion." Apparently, the Robin took a liking to our table and would not leave us alone ... but, the food more than made up for it.
