As a few friends and I visited our other friend in San Jose, we had a hard time deciding where we were going to eat lunch. Finally, after many suggestions, we picked to eat at the first restaurant we saw: Red Robin. When we first walked in, I was surprised that there weren't customers waiting in line especially since it was around lunch time. However, I wasn't complaining. We were able to get our table quickly and order exactly what we wanted in less than thirty minutes all together.
Red Robin has a wide selection on their menu. They offer a variety of appetizers, fresh salads, wraps, sandwiches, soups, pasta, chicken platters, some seafood platters, and gourmet burgers. Customers don't have to worry about bringing their children along because they also have a kids menu. As far as beverages go, they have a large selection to choose from. Red Robin has smoothies, milkshakes, malts, and the usual soda choices. For the older customers, this restaurant offers margaritas, beer, wine, and much more.
I ordered the Bruschetta Chicken Burger, which is grilled chicken breast with freshly prepared bruschetta salsa, pesto aioli, Provolone cheese, shredded romaine lettuce, and balsamic cream on ciabatta bread. This also came with a side of garlic fries. When I saw my order arrive, I was ready to eat. The taste of all the different flavors combined caught me by surprise. It was delicious.
By the end of my meal, I was very full. I was glad that we decided to eat at Red Robin. The prices were reasonable, and the service was fine. However, I noticed that they would check on us often to see if we needed anything, so that was something I enjoyed having. If you ever need a restaurant to eat with some friends, Red Robin has the food and atmosphere that everyone would enjoy.
