Red Robin

The Setting:  An American memorabilia theme decorates the Lawrenceville location.  A bar with booths, tables and a huge American flag made out of painted baseballs greet you as you enter.  It’s a bright, casual and inviting restaurant that has a tendency of being a bit noisy.  This is a family friendly restaurant, likely to be filled with young children and toddlers.

The Staff:  Friendly

The Food:  The burgers are the star of the show here.  With about 15 traditional-style burgers and even more options for those seeking a lighter alternative.  You’re sure to find a combination of toppings that you like.  We’ve tried a number of the options available. 

Our favorites:

Royal Red Robin Buger:  A cheeseburger topped with a slice of bacon and an egg.  *Note*  This is not the best option for the calorie conscious.  But, it is insanely hardy and delicious.

Bleu Ribbon Burger:  Topped with onion straws and crumbled bleu cheese.  YUM!

The 5 Alarm Burger:  Topped with pepperjack, jalapenos, salsa and a chipotle mayo, this burger has a bite.  The salsa has a vinegary tang and a good dose of heat.

Sante Fe Burger:  This is easily my favorite of the bunch.  Topped with a roasted Poblano pepper, guacamole, sauteed onions, pepperjack, and just enough fried & shredded tortilla strips to add a pleasant crunch.  This unlikely assortment of toppings work surprisingly well on a burger.  Also, the bun is noteworthy with a bit of cornmeal added for texture and a fine dice of peppers for flavor.  This burger has a wee bit of heat, but, still offers plenty of flavor.

Other noteworthy features:  All burgers are accompanied by an endless order of fries that they call “bottomless steak fries”.   They’re quite good.  Thickly cut fries are served up in heaping portions to accompany the burger.  I have no idea how you’d order a refill without bursting at the seams.

Star of the Day:  Sante Fe Burger
