“Red Robin – sometimes yum, sometimes yuck.”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

For the many times we have been up in Grand Junction, sometimes we are in the mood for a burger and fries, and Red Robin is the place to go…but not on the weekend. Seems that during the week they are not as busy as the weekend, and that makes all the difference between yum and yuck.

Usually there are three of us and we are creatures of habit; we each have a particular burger we enjoy, and that’s what we order. The burgers in the Banzai Burger and Sauteed ‘Shroom are thick, grilled perfectly to order and juicy; the cod in the Crispy Arctic Cod Sandwich is thick, the tempura batter is crispy and the fish is flaky. Each sandwich has an assortment of toppings that come with it, and they go perfectly in each sandwich. Our drinks were always refilled quickly; the waitress ready with a refill pitcher even before we asked. Red Robin…YUM! That’s during the week though when they are not too busy.

A couple of times we were there on the weekend and the food items were very different than what we had before. The burgers were overcooked and dry; the fish was undercooked and raw in the center. We ended up packing up the sandwiches and feeding them to the dogs once we arrived home. Why not send them back for a redo? Try finding the waitress; an impossible task since they are so overwhelmingly busy on the weekend. You can’t even get a refill on your drink. Red Robin…YUCK!

There is one item that is always perfectly cooked at all times; the bottomless Steak Fries. Always crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and absolutely delicious. We love these fries! Once again though, during the week we get the endless fries; on the weekend be happy with what you received with your burger because you won’t be getting anymore. Where is that waitress!?!

Overall, if you enjoy a good burger with fries, go to Red Robin, but during the week, not on the weekend; less aggravating that way.
