Its tough to walk into a Red Robin and not enjoy the time there. The mood in each of the four locations across the Treasure Valley two in Boise, one in Meridian and one in Nampa is cheerful and just begs for a beer, burger, fries and some laughs. Theres flair, but just the right amount.
Burgers are what Red Robin does best. Picky eaters love their plain cheeseburgers and not-so-picky eaters have plenty of specialty burgers to pile as much as they can on a patty. The Burnin Love burger puts jalapenos, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes and pepper jack cheese between jalapeno-cornmeal buns, and the Bleu Ribbon burger features bleu cheese, onion straws, lettuce, steak sauce, tomatoes and chipotle mayonnaise.
Chicken fingers, spaghetti and mac n cheese are three of the nine items on the kids menu, giving the little ones plenty to choose from.
Want variety? Salads, chicken, riblets, wings, wraps, soups and seafood are on the menu. And the bottomless fries keep coming, so there is always lots to pass around.
