How I heard of this place: Red Robin is a place almost no one from the Pacific Northwest has not heard of! I believe I was introduced to Red Robin in Bellingham, Washington many years back by my long-time friend Chrissy, who invited us there to celebrate her birthday.
Type of cuisine: Burgers and fries. Other American dishes are also available, including sandwiches, salads, soups and many fried appetizers.
Ambiance: Loud, red, full of clutter and great for children. The space is open, seating is mostly in booths, and this particular establishment is located conveniently at the end of the Northgate Mall Food Court. High ceilings grace the entire length of the restaurant space, which makes it easy to watch Red Robin logo balloons make their out of a child’d hands and up, up and away…
What I ordered: Ever since I first tried it, it has been difficult to go back to any other burger. And, since I infrequently find myself dining at Red Robin (except for my free birthday burger!), I find that when I’m there there is no other option. The honey mustard chicken burger ($8.95). Several years ago, the burger was taken off the menu, but a little birdie suggested I ask the server for it each time since the ingredients are all still available! This trip was like others and I enjoyed the honey mustard chicken burger once again. The burger is now served on a whole wheat bun and dressed with lettuce, tomato, onion, guacamole and honey mustard sauce. Our littlest dining companions (18 months and 30 months old) shared the grilled cheese sandwich with a side of broccoli…and our refills of fries. One of our others ordered the Whiskey River BBQ burger ($9), basted with Whiskey River BBQ sauce and lasso’d together with Cheddar cheese, crispy onion straws, lettuce, tomatoes and mayo. Our final dining companion, and the mother of the two little rascals, ordered the teriyaki chicken sandwich ($8.95), a tender, juicy, grilled chicken breast with sweet teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, Swiss cheese, crisp lettuce, tomatoes and mayo.
What I loved: The guacamole in the honey mustard chicken burger just can’t be beat!
Why I loved it: The food is good, the prices reasonable and it offers the perfect setting where both the parents and the children of most any American family can find something to enjoy – be it in the food, the ambiance or the quickness of the staff!
Cost: Average ($8-$10 for a burger with unlimited fry refills)
