Red Robin Crafts Catch-Up Strategies

Red Robin Crafts Catch-Up Strategies

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Beers calls its ongoing remodeling effort a “Brand Transformation,” but the transformation is encountering a few negative side effects. For Q4, the chain reported a 4.6% decline in customers, which a 2.6% increase in average check (1.9% from price) couldn’t cover, resulting in a 2% decrease in same-store sales for […]

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 2/12

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 2/12

The variety in this week’s burgers is especially appealing. There’s bison and brisket, slides and a breakfast sandwich, truffled mashed potatoes and Cheddar popcorn. When people ask what I mean by intriguing, I may just have to send them here. I’m trying a different format for the Intriguing roundup here, one that allows a little […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Feb. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Feb. 2016

Happily, this wasn’t what I expected. With Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day crowded into February, I expected lots of Creole, Cupid and Honest Abe Burgers of the Month specials. And there are a few clever holiday-themed burgers in the list. Bobby Flay has a Louisiana Burger at his Bobby’s Burger Palace chain and […]

Wendy’s Gives Dave’s Burgers Better Bun

Wendy’s Gives Dave’s Burgers Better Bun

Dave Thomas was smart enough to know that a good idea is a good idea, no matter who else is embracing that idea.

I can report to you that the state of the burger is strong, creative and fun. As evidence I point to the burgers here from burger bar and chain menus in the past week or so. January has proven to be an unexpectedly busy month for menu innovation, not just by the top chains but […]

Butter Becoming Burger Battleground

Butter Becoming Burger Battleground

Burger joints can load up burgers with wild toppings. It’s part of  burgers’ charm. But one of the hottest ingredients seems to be a staple of any restaurant kitchen: butter. Burger King is testing an Extra Long Buttery Cheeseburger—with the emphasis on BUTTERY in POP displays—according to GrubGrade. This is an obvious response to what […]

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/22

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/22

To balance this week’s continuing discussion of U.S. value menus, I thought I’d close the week with some interesting burgers introduced outside the U.S. There are no discount burgers here; just full-throttle creative builds, including an El Chapo Burger from Canada. With buffalo, reindeer and prawn patties and toppings from fig marmalade and horseradish relish […]

Carl’s Jr. Joins the $4 Bundle Battle

Carl’s Jr. Joins the $4 Bundle Battle

Burger chains continue their wheeling and meal-dealing. Carl’s Jr. has upped the ante on what $4 gets you in a bundled value meal. Its $4 Real Deal offer: a Double Cheeseburger plus a Spicy Chicken Sandwich, small fries and a 16-oz. drink. That easily tops Wendy’s “4 for $4” meal, which started the bundled-meal trend […]
