Red Robin tests new premium burger line

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers tests new premium burger line | Latest Headlines content from Nation's Restaurant News

Quote:
In a report Friday, Wall Street analyst Christopher O’Cull of KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc. said he expects Red Robin’s new premium burgers to be priced around $13.99 or $14.99, which would “complete the barbell pricing strategy.”

Holy crap, NO WAY! I can get great burgers at pubs near here and other places. That is way too much for a burger.

People need to stop purchasing these ridiculously expensive items. I'm with bakechef on this one .. you can get an awesome burger for a reasonable price at some pubs. On the upside, we don't have a Red Robin near us so I won't be tempted.

$13.99? $14.99? I once walked out of Burger King because they had raised the price on their value burgers to $1.30 from $1.00.

I've never eaten at Red Robin. Are their burgers considered fast food like Burger King or more of a "fancy" burger that you might find in a restaurant like Chili's? I don't really like burgers from restaurants. If I'm having a burger it should be fast food or homemade. Anything else tastes like crap to me. The last thing a burger should be is "fancy."

at that price, i hope it's a big burger (8 ozs. or so) with at least lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles, and a big side of french fries.

even the deluxe burgers here in nyc with the aforementioned things are only about $10 in a diner.

Lol! For that price you should get valet parking or a date with the waiter/waitress! You do get all the fries you want at Red Robin.....but I agree with others I can get a great burger at a pub for $8 - $10

Red Robin has a better quality burger offering than fast food. It's a sit down place, very casual. Their burgers are pretty good and they have a great variety. But I'd never pay that kind of money there.

RR's non-premium burgers are $10+ and I think that's too much for the burger you get. We ate there once and don't plan to go back.

I ate at the one in Patriot Place and was underwhelmed.

I guess they want to compete with 5 Napkin Burger.
