  1. I concur Red Robin is a fantastic burger place. The only complain I have is that their booths are too small for my wife. In fact my oldest daughter even has some trouble squeezing in to them. Fortunately they have tables with sturdy chairs. Fuddruckers isn’t bad either. I like their chicken sandwiches and their one pound burger is the burger of choice for my wife. 5 Guys is also another great choice as long as you don’t have a peanut allergy. Another good place is “CheeBurger Cheeburger” where their motto is “bigger is better”. The place is done up like a 50s malt shop and they have the best onion rings.
    All in all we count ourselves lucky that we live within relatively short driving distance to so many fantastic burger places.

  2. Wow that place looks amazing! And those dipping sauces with the fries!? I hope you guys all have your pictures up on the wall for eating a tiny 20oz burger. 🙂

  3. The dipping sauces are great and the amount of burger toppings is pretty spectacular as well. In fact it’s the only burger place where I’ve ever seen peanut butter listed as an available burger topping. Not really sure I’d want to try it but I guess somebody has; why else would it be there?
    My wife has had her picture on the wall 3 times so far, my oldest daughter should have hers up as well but she is still too worried about people she knows seeing it up there with the rest of the gluttons. The particular location we frequent is very close to her HS and a lot of her friends go there. It’s typical teenage image stuff; eventually she will learn not to sweat what other people think or say. It’s a great place and we do try and go there as a family once a month or so.
