I used to go to the Red Robin in Guildford a lot when I was still in high school and university. But haven’t been back since I started exploring more. However, I still think this is a pretty good place to get a decent burger. I went with my family for dinner here on Friday. One thing it has going for them is that it is very kid friendly, so we can bring our 2-year old nephew here and not have to worry. It’s quite loud in there, and they also provide kids with crayons and stuff to colour. They also have a kids menu.
To start we had the Calamari and the Dry Ribs. The calamari was nice and crisp and had a nice texture. Tender but still with a bite to it. The Dry Ribs were quite dry, but some of them were also quite meaty. They were for the most part crisp. They came with a sweet thai chili sauce.
For our mains most of us got burgers, and they were pretty good. I ordered the new Prime Chophouse burger. The burger patty was juicy and flavourful, but I wish the onion strings were crisper. Some of them seemed to have been either under fried or under battered. Most of them were pretty soggy, but that may be due to the sauce. The mushrooms were also not very noticeable as they were thinner, and cooked down more than it is in there Mushroom burger. The country dijon sauce was also quite strong, and I wasn’t a big fan. I like the idea of this burger, but I’m not sure if I’d order it again. Something was too overpowering. I upgraded my fries to a poutine. I really like the Red Robin fries, but it doesn’t work as well with a poutine. Their gravy is really dark and salty.
My dad said he enjoyed the Fish and Chips because there were was a lot of it when compared to what he would typically get at White Spot for the same price. Mom ordered the Shrimp and Chips, and again, tons of shrimp in there. For my nephew we got some mac and cheese, and brocolli. The mac and cheese is pretty decent too says my family. Really cheesy.
If you sign up for Red Robin’s email, you can get a free burger during your birthday, and also free sundae.
