Red Robin Flies Into Greenville

A great burger is more than just a patty of beef on a bun. Red Robin, an award-winning full-service restaurant chain, has created a menu of specialty burgers to tempt any burger lover's taste buds.

You can try one for yourself now that the Greenville location has opened.

Red Robin's burger choices include:

* The Royal Robin, with a fried egg, bacon and American cheese;

* Bleu Ribbon, with steak sauce, chipotle aioli, Bleu cheese and onion straws;

* Banzai, with teriyaki glaze and grilled pineapple;

* Burnin' Love, with fried jalapenos, salsa, Pepperjack cheese and chipotle aioli; and

* Whiskey River BBQ, with bourbon-infused barbecue sauce, onion straws and Cheddar cheese.

There are burgers topped with guacamole, with spicy chili, with sauteed mushrooms, with pickle relish, with grilled onions; all are served with lettuce and tomato.

For diners who don't eat red meat, Red Robin offers a number of grilled chicken sandwiches, a grilled turkey burger, a cod sandwich and a seafood plate.

And for those who don't eat meat of any kind, there's a garden burger.

Each burger comes with a choice of a "bottomless"side: all-you-can-eat steak fries, sweet potato fries, steamed broccoli, coleslaw or garden salad. When you finish your serving, your server will bring you more, if you'd like.

Appetizers include pretzel bites, a tower of onion rings, artichoke and spinach dip, and a hummus plate.

Desserts include a brownie cake and a tower of mini doughnuts served with chocolate and raspberry sauces.

And just like any good old-fashioned burger joint, Red Robin serves milk shakes like, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, peach and salted caramel.

Adults can order a spiked version, such as the Bailey's Irish Cream Shake, the Blue Moon Beer Shake and the Kahlua Jamaican Shake.

Greenville's Red Robin has a modern ambience with wood accents and eclectic artwork. The full-service bar in the center of the restaurant is accented with wavy track light with suspended beer bottles. There is seating at tables, booths and the bar.

Red Robin operates more than 500 restaurants in the United States. The chain has been named best full-service burger in the annual Zagat fast-food survey for several consecutive years.
