I’m a sucker for fried chicken and waffles. Not really sure how the trend started, but when it’s available, it’s a hard choice to pass up. That’s why we were stoked to learn that Red Robin is currently offering a new chicken and waffle burger that we needed to try immediately.
The Bee’s Knees Finest Chicken Burger adds a new dimension to the popular chicken and waffle dish, but it’s only available for a limited time.
This welcomed twist on a traditional favorite features a perfectly cooked tempura-fried chicken breast glazed in Angry Orchard® honey, a spicy jalapeno relish, topped with citrus-marinated tomatoes and onions, with shredded romaine, all in between two crispy Belgian waffle buns.
We had a chance to visit our local Red Robin recently and were able to sink our teeth into this new flavor-packed, sweet and savory creation. IT WAS LIT! The sweetness of the Angry Orchard® honey, paired with the spicy jalapeno relish is a perfect blend of sweet, sticky, and spicy — almost resembling the flavor of a buffalo chicken recipe, but with a little less kick at the end.
“Comfort food is a staple of the Fall season,” said Jonathan Muhtar, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Red Robin. “Red Robin’s new innovative menu items offer a playful spin on classic dishes and popular seasonal flavors that are sure to put a smile on our guests’ faces.”
Known as “The Gourmet Burger Authority,” Red Robin is only serving up The Bee’s Knee’s Finest Chicken Burger until November 6th, so go grab a bite while you can. When you do, be sure to order a side of S’mored Sweet Potato Fries.
S’mored Sweet Potato Fries take ordinary sweet potato fries to a whole new level, and are great as an appetizer or a dessert. It’s a bed of hot sweet potato fries topped with toasted marshmallows, drizzled with hot fudge and sprinkled with a dash of sea salt — there’s even a hot chocolate fudge dipping sauce that adds even more sweetness to this dish. It’s almost like the sweet potatoes and marshmallow Thanksgiving plate we all know and love.
We see you, Red Robin, and we like it.
