Red Robin to open downtown Monday


Officials at Red Robin Burger Works say they'll open their new restaurant in the former Borders space at 1700 Maple Ave. in downtown Evanston next Monday, March 21.

The Burger Works outlet is a smaller, non-traditional prototype operated by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc., which is known mostly for larger restaurant venues.

The quick-service menu will include Red Robin classics, like the Whiskey River BBQ, Banzai, Royal Red Robin and Guacamole Bacon; and new items like hand-battered chicken tenders, distinctive salads and wraps, as well as Red Robin's famous seasoned steak fries and tasty milkshakes.

The Evanston restaurant, open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., will feature sandwiches with fries for prices starting at $6.99.

Jason Rusk, vice president of Burger Works, said it will offer "lightning speed service."

"We promise to have guests out of the door quickly after they order," he added.
