Red Robin Review and Giveaway

I love going out to eat. It's a fun experience and I always enjoy trying new foods and old favorites, or ordering something that looks really delicious.



Red Robin Gourmet Burgers has been the Gourmet Burger expert since 1969, when the first Red Robin® restaurant opened in Seattle. Now, with more than 450 restaurants across the U.S. and Canada, Red Robin offers craveable, high-quality menu items including innovative, signature Gourmet Burgers and Chicken Sandwiches, as well as salads, entrees, and signature Bottomless Beverages™ all made with fresh, Honest-to-Goodness® ingredients.

This was my first time at a Red Robin. I had seen the commercials on TV and the food looked really good, so I was looking forward to eating at the establishment.

I visited the location in Clifton, NJ this afternoon with my boyfriend's family. The restaurant was very clean and well staffed. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice too and they had an eclectic collection of poster memorabilia around the restaurant. I was seated promptly and drink orders were taken right away.

I ordered a chicken ceasar salad that was very delicious as did another person. The lettuce and cheese was very fresh, and the chicken was warm and tender and cooked perfectly. My boyfriend enjoyed his meal too. He ordered the peppercorn burger that had a delicious fresh bun completed with crunchy bacon, onion straws, a tomato that was juicy and fresh, and meat that was tender and succulent. The burger had peppercorns in it too which gave it a nice crunchy kick. Everyone enjoyed the bottomless fries too. The fries were hot but not burning hot and they had a crunchy exterior with a fluffy interior.

The menu had so many options that are sure to please anyone who dines there. The waitress I had was very attentive and made sure that everyone was pleased with their food and drinks. All in all, I really enjoyed my visit and I will surely come again.

  94. This would be great for our family. Our daughter is in a High School Color Guard that will be performing at the Rose Parade next year. One of the ways we are saving money for her to go (and hopefully for us to go watch it live) is no more eating out. If I were to win this gift card, we could save our money and still eat out.
