Everyone who is into food or at least those who are pregnant get cravings for things sometimes. And since according to basic anatomy and physiology I fall into the former camp I've had an obession lately with the basic diner staple of the patty melt. The patty melt usually has a little bit of everything that anyone as an American would enjoy (What about you tofu and beansprout people? You're at the wrong blog.). Red meat ground and shaped into an ample hamburger patty, melted cheese, onions grilled to bring out their natural sweetness, and dear Lord yes all of this is on YEAH TOAST! I get it as a go to when I'm trying a burger joint for the first time. It shouldn't be too hard to do correctly. And I've had success getting it before at Britton Tavern and The Stacked Pickle. My next quest to find out if Red Robin could be as successful.
The first thing I want to say about Red Robin is that if you are under 21 or have children with you Red Robin might be the most annoying restaurant in the known universe at which to dine. When The Girlfriend and I walked in I almost turned around and walked out due to all of the screaming kids, general busyness, and crazy crap on the walls. Think Uncle Moe's Family feedbag for you Simpsonites out there. Luckily because we were both 21 we were seated on the bar side (Who is going to this place to drink??) and promptly ordered our meals.
Value 4/10 The price was average here and pretty much exactly what you'd expect. Execution issues with the food hurt the value score.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere.
