Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. is two weeks away from bringing gourmet burgers to Greenville, North Carolina. The newest Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews restaurant will open at 11 a.m. on April 4. To help celebrate the grand opening of the new restaurant, Red Robin will donate all sales of its signature Freckled Lemonade from April 4 through April 10, to its national charity partner, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer.
The Gourmet Burger Authority offers more than two dozen innovative gourmet burgers served with Bottomless Steak Fries, and more than 100 different toppings for guests to customize their favorite burger. Some of the most popular burgers are the Royal Red Robin Burger topped with a fresh fried egg and Red's Tavern Double with its signature styles, including the Fiery Ghost Style that uses the ghost pepper, one of the world's hottest chile peppers. Red Robin introduced the Smoke & Pepper Burger nationally in early November 2013, the first of Red Robin's Finest gourmet burger line, and has since expanded with four additional offerings: The D.G.B., Black & Bleu burger, Southern Charm Burger, and The Marco Pollo.
While Red Robin has been grilling up gourmet burgers for more than 45 years, the menu also offers a variety of salads, entrees, soups, and wraps made with the freshest ingredients, many of which are made in-house.
Red Robin also offers several signature beverages including Red Robin's Freckled Lemonade, which has been a guest favorite since it was added to the menu more than 20 years ago. The Freckled Lemonade, a refreshing blend of sweet strawberries and tangy Minute Maid Lemonade, is available for $4.49 and includes free bottomless refills. All Freckled Lemonade sales during grand opening week at the new restaurant in Greenville will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was created by 4-year-old childhood cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott, who began raising money through her front yard lemonade stand to help doctors on their way to finding cures for all kids with cancer. Alex's mission continues through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and to date, Red Robin has donated more than $1 million to support the fight against childhood cancer.
