You can enjoy a reasonable priced burger at Red Robin. I decided to have lunch at my favorite burger joint, Red Robin. I went to the location on 99th and Mc Dowell in Avondale located right behind the Harkins movie theatre and stands across from its competitor Island Burgers. Red Robin was first opened in the 1940’s near the University of Washington. It wasn’t called Red Robin at the time, but Sam’s Tavern. In 1973 Red Robin expanded it menu from jumbo sized beers, sandwiches and popcorn to the Red Robin Gourmet cheese burgers. Finally, in 2008 Red Robin was named one of ten best family restaurants in Parents Magazine. Red Robin is a great restaurant because of their variety of menu options, outstanding service and their friendly family atmosphere.
Red Robin has several menu options to choose from. Depending on how hungry you are, you can start with something small like the creamy artichoke and spinach dip made with cheesy blend of artichoke hearts, spinach, onions, parmesan, a pinch of bacon and corn tortillas. If you need something a little more fulfilling then maybe you should order the onion ring tower. This giant tower comes with 13 sweet onion rings that are seasoned, breaded and crispy fried. This is also served with a tangy sweet sauce and a side of ranch dressing. Now if you are ready to move on to the main course then get ready to order the famous Whiskey River BBQ Burger. This burger is loaded with mouth watering BBQ sauce, smothered with cheddar cheese, crispy onion straws, lettuce, tomatoes and mayo and don’t forget get order the famous garlic fries on the side. This burger is truly one of a kind. Then you can wash that all down with a classic monster milk shake. You can choose from chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, banana, raspberry or peach.
Red Robin gives outstanding customer service no matter what state you are in. If you are enjoying a meal in Washington or Phoenix you will always get fabulous service. The customer service level at this restaurant is far better compared to Island Burger. There is never a wait, the staff is always friendly and you will never have to flag down your waitress for a drink refills.
Taking your family to Red Robin will always be a great experience. This kid friendly restaurant is very entertaining for the kids. The first thing you see when you enter the restaurant is this giant gumball machine, several balloons and a miniature arcade. This is enough to catch any child’s eye not to mention the giant colorful life size bird in the middle of the restaurant. This restaurant is also perfect to host a child’s birthday party or any other youth event.
If you have not experienced eating at Red Robin, I would highly recommend you do it soon. Don’t miss out on some of the best gourmet burgers ever made. This restaurant has been around for years and I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon. Red Robin has a wide variety of menu options with reasonable prices and a great customer service. So what are you waiting for? Go grab yourself a burger.
A great restaurant! – Islands is very popular, with excellent gourmet burgers, chicken, tacos, salads and beverages, very nice tropical ambiance, and great service at very reasonable prices! What more can you ask? Plenty of parking too, and easy to get to from the I-60 freeway.
First Rate Burger! – While I agree that having to pay extra for fries at a burger joint is silly, it doesn't detract from the experience for me. The burgerrs are wonderful, the atmosphere is fun, and the staff is friendly. By far the best sit-down burger in the Phoenix area!
What food – If you are a guy, do yourself a favor and get a spot on the patio. The food is slightly above average, but there is a parade of gorgeous women walking back and forth all the time.
They have good burgers, and good fries. Nothing better than you can find at a regular sit down restaurant.
The patio is nicely decorated, and has a mister to help with the heat. This is where you want to be. Just sit back, have a beer and watch the parade of beautiful college girls go by.
Islands of Discontent – This place would maybe be good if you were Tom Hanks coming off the Castaway Island, ribs poking out of your chest after a year of eating bark. The burgers are big but the prices are nearing extortion for what you get and the quality left me saying "eh".
Try Red Robin if you want a better selection of hamburgers that will make you say yum without robbing you blind. Even Wilson would agree with that!
Islands Rocks! – I love Islands! Everything from their tacos, burgers and tortilla soup is wonderful! They have creative names for their scrumptous dishes! Bon Appetit!
Save your money – I feel the service and food were at best okay and the food to be very pricey for what you get. I have been in there one with my wife and have never returned.
Hawaii – Try the Hula. It is a mouth watering, juicy treat.
Islands is the best – Islands rules ! best environment to scarf down an awesome big wave burger!
FAMILY PLEASING RESTRAUNT – THEY ARE AWSOME FOR ALL TYPES OF APPITITES. RANGING FROM BURGERS TO FISH TACOS AND AN AWSOME TORTILLA SOUP
