New Smoke & Pepper Signature Burger from Red Robin

Goodbye to the Oktoberfest Burger and hello to the new Smoke & Pepper Signature Burger from Red Robin.  The Smoke & Pepper Signature Burger is seasoned with smoked sea salt and topped with black-pepper bacon and extra-sharp Cheddar on a ciabatta bun with house-made Smoke & Pepper ketchup.  As always, the burger is served with bottomless steak fries.  “Red Robin’s Finest debut is Inspired by Chef Laurent Tourondel’s Smashed Smoked Burger — winner of the 2013 South Beach Wine & Food Festival® Best of the Bash burger competition. It beat out nine delicious burgers by top chefs, and inspired us to create the first masterpiece from Red Robin’s Finest.”

    It’s worth noting this burger is 1/2 pound Black Angus Prime beef, a first for Red Robin

    Just might have to get out my Glutton Card and walk down the street for this bad boy! Their slogan is very accurate…Yum!

    I had this today out of curiosity. It was a good burger. In fact, I’d say it was a really good burger.

    But was it $13.49 (the pre-tax price) good? HELLLLLL NO. That’s about the price I would to expect to pay at a steakhouse for a burger. Red Robin is bat-sh*t crazy if they think that this price will be supported by the clientele that frequents their restaurant. I know that RR has been trying to go more up-scale, but they really should just embrace who they are and who they always have been: a family friendly restaurant that gives out free balloons to kids. Near $15 for a burger I just can’t see flying in the long run at a place like Red Robin.

    By the way, for that kind of money, I’d at least like to be able to specify medium rare, medium, medium well, or well done, rather than “some pink or no pink”. I asked for some pink and got no pink for my $13.49.

    I had decided if I had one more crappy burger from Red Robin it would be my last. I ordered this today and it was really, really good. I asked for “some pink” and got it medium rare (HOORAY). But I won’t be ordering it again because of the price. So, I guess it’s back to ordering anything but a burger at Red Robin for me.

    I was feeling hungry and the wife informed me I was on my own tonight. My son wanted to go to Red Robin. A burger sounded to good for me to resist. I ordered a monster smoke and pepper burger. The waitress informed me it was an additional $4.99 for the monster even though it was $1.99 on the menu. No where did it say $4.99. I did not want to pay an additional $5 to an ready $14 burger. I ordered the regular. It was a a good burger, but it will be a long time before I spend that again for a burger.
