Sandwiches in Review: Red Robin Guacamole Bacon Burger

May 14, 2010

Red Robin is a higher-end restaurant/bar chain, known for their gourmet burgers and endless fries.  It’s a popular birthday dinner spot, as evidenced by at least three birthday song renditions the last time I was there.  While Red Robin always has a number of interesting limited-time offers, I decided to review one of their standard menu options, the Guacamole Bacon Burger.

Not pictured: a TON of steak fries.

The Guacamole Bacon Burger is an interesting if increasingly common recipe, consisting of guacamole, bacon, swiss cheese, and the standard veggies.  One thing worth mentioning is that this burger, like most of them at Red Robin, is huge.  The sheer amount of food this sandwich provides is a plus on its own.  While it may not be the most inventive burger, it’s very well executed, with several strips of bacon and plenty of guacamole.  As I mentioned, it also comes with endless steak fries.  However, the burger itself is quite filling, so it’s a bit unnecessary.  Overall, a worthwhile meal.

The one downside of Red Robin is that it’s a bit on the costly side.  A burger with fries and a drink will almost invariably be upwards of ten dollars.  I’d still recommend the restaurant in general and the Guacamole Bacon Burger specifically, but it’s something to keep in mind.

Plus, this is their mascot. You can't go wrong with a guy in a bird costume.
