Red Robins?
« on: April 06, 2018, 06:12:52 PM »
Has anyone been to Red Robins who can explain how the "bottom less fries" work? Are the burgers one handful? Two handfuls? Trying to co-plan an event. Thanks.

OH DAMN Y’ALL GLENN IS BACK!

Went once in Birmingham years ago, didn't like it and haven't been back since. The burger was underwhelming to me.

Tastes like overpriced Burger King to me. Bottomless fries is exactly what it sounds like...unlimited refills of fries for the one who's entree came with fries. I personally would be embarrassed to ask for a second serving of fries even if I liked fries that much; but that's a different issue.

The ones we were at in Michigan were actually pretty good, but I've never had a burger.  They have a couple of really good chicken sandwiches and the fries are quite decent.  (It's amazing how many places can screw up something as simple as french fries.)  Overpriced?  Not compared to trendy places like 5 Guys (which we also like very much), but if the restaurant you go to has poor food and poor service, then it doesn't matter WHAT the price is; it is overpriced.

Great question, Glenn.

The number of handfuls primarily depends on the style and toppings.

What were you thinking for your event?

Glenn,

Will this no doubt high society affair you are organizing at the hamburger hut cost more or less than the $300 in web design fees you still owe me?

Warmest Regards,
Susan

More cousins in town, presumably ;)

Lol We should hold a fundraiser so Susan can get paid and so Glenn can come back to posting freely.

That is how I felt about Fuddrucker's. I went to the one at The Landing. The burger was underwhelming and the atmosphere sucked as well.

You know you have been reading this forum for a while when you understand the fuddruckers/Landing comments.  ;D

I like to imagine that Glenn went to IKEA to do an ethnic dining review and was so blown away by the store in general that he's decided to camp out in one of the model apartments. He'll report back in a few months.

I have no idea who Glenn is, but this reminds me of the Stephen Dare era. Let's all dogpile! This forum is really useful when it talks about the city and how to improve it. Don't make me get my ruler out and start slapping people!

Not to worry. Glenn VL is a satirical poster who did deadpan "reviews" of things happening at the Town Center, like this, before vanishing like a sprite to spread mirth elsewhere. He is much missed.
