The Washington-based Red Robin burger chain has just opened its first Nashville outpost at the Nashville West shopping center off Charlotte. For their grand opening, they'll donate 50 cents of every gourmet burger sold this week to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee.
The opposite of no-frills Five Guys, Red Robin has a burger for pretty much every land and inclination: chili burgers, pot-roast burgers, salmon burgers, teriyaki burgers, barbecue burgers. Also fajitas, cod fillets and fried jumbo shrimp, with individual pizzas for the little ones. A big, sprawling menu, just the way Kay likes 'em. Burgers run about $10, with sides of bottomless fries. And yes, Carrington, there is a milkshake.
The donation offer ends Jan. 20. Red Robin is located at 6802 Charlotte Pike, open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Call 352-1710.
