    Is it just me, or is Red Robin not as good as it used to be? I've found them to be inconsistent in the past few months -- one time a salad was much larger than it was the time before. Tonight we asked for broccoli and it was brown and awful.

    Yes, I made my opinion known to the staff. Just wondering if I've had bad luck or if others have noticed a change lately?

    I thought this too... Went over weekend and the burger didn't taste that great. I order the same thing every time.

    I agree. I especially noticed it when we visited a Red Robin in PA and had a much better meal than in Ashburn. I hardly eat there anymore due to the inconsistent meals and price!

    Went last night and my daughter had a burger that she just didn't like - she couldn't describe why. I had a bite and it tasted flat and dry. The burgers there have always been decent and juicy (albeit not overly spectacular), but this was just not good.

    Every burger I've ever had there has been very tasty. In fact, I was there just recently and had one of my better burgers.

    I hope we don't lose yet another restaurant.

    We went back tonight, and it was WICKED busy. Food was good, service was great. Maybe they put their A game on for busy nights? I don't know, but I'm happy to say we were pleased with the food and service tonight.

    Noticed it's moving from a "kid-friendly" spot to an adult spot. The only reason my family and I would go is for the dumb bird to make appearance. Now there is a 21 an older only spot and no more kid stuff. Even took out the arcade games. Food is still not bad to me.

    I heard that they are trying to attract an older crowd for the "later" dinner/drinks hours. Most times after 7-7:30 the place is fairly empty as many families with youngish children eat before then.

    We went there last month for the first time in quite a while and were under the impression that they were trying to make it look more mature. Except for the weird red tables & chairs that look like they belong at a tea party in Wonderland.

    Went for lunch the day after Thanksgiving and had the Smoke and Pepper burger. Was amazing. I honestly think this place is underrated by some when it comes to their burgers.

    They have a new Angus burger (or similar upgrade in beef). Wife said that it was excellent.
