( – Seven Corners, Falls Church, Virginia

How I heard of this place: My first taste of Red Robin was when it opened in Bellingham, Washington while I was in junior high school. This particular one was introduced to me by my husband, Chris, the deserving destination after a two mile walk in the NoVa sun.

Type of cuisine: Burgers and fries to start…Now patrons can also enjoy wraps, salads, sandwiches, mac’n cheese, prime rib dips, nachos and even pasta!

Ambiance: Bright, cluttered and full of random artwork, from photographs of James Dean to cats, the Red Robin mascot, to Nagel prints. Booths and table-chair seating are available for diners wishing to enjoy their meals. The space is loud with music, children and the bustling of the diners. Serving staff is friendly, bubbly and very customer-service friendly.  

What I ordered: On this quick jaunt out for my free birthday burger, I decided to be bold and go for something new: Bruschetta Chicken Burger ($10.49), a grilled chicken breast with freshly prepared bruschetta salsa, pesto aioli, Provolone cheese, romaine lettuce and balsamic cream on rustic ciabatta bread. Chris was looking for a lighter choice, and selected the Grilled Turkey Burger ($8.79) with Provolone cheese ($0.99 more), a seasoned turkey patty, fire-grilled and layered with lettuce, fresh tomatoes and zesty chipotle mayo on a whole grain bun.

Ranch dressing on the side of our bottomless fries and we were two happy campers.

What I loved: I love the endless fries! Between the two burgers, the Whiskey River had more flavor and zip. The freshness of the California was noticeable in the vegetables and guacamole, but after having tried the BBQ sandwich, first, it left something to be desired.

Why I loved it: Free birthday burger!

Cost: Average ($8-$10 per burger with bottomless fries)
