According to the casual-dining chain, the new additions representing the Red Robin fall menu are as follows:

  • For the French Onion Ringer, Red Robin adds Swiss cheese, crispy onion straws, French Onion spread and tomatoes atop a burger, nestling it in a melted provolone-capped onion bun with three golden-fried onion rings.
  • El Ranchero Burger, is sure to offer a sales lift. Red Robin tops the Tex-Mex-style burger with American cheese, candied bacon, crispy onion straws, and housemade jalapeño ranch. The restaurants then finish it off with barbecue ketchup, tomatoes and shredded romaine.
  • Garlic Parmesan Pretzel Bites are made with bear claw pretzel bites tossed in a garlic-Parmesan spread, then topped with shredded Parmesan cheese. In addition, Red Robin serves them with a side of roasted garlic aioli.
  • Nashville Hot Boneless Wings also arrive on the menu. The kitchen tosses these wings in spicy Nashville hot sauce and serves them on a bed of Yukon Kettle chips with dill pickle slices.The dish of tender, crispy boneless wings will rise as a favorite on the menu.

Red Robin’s management team has been working hard to improve sales, amid a bid from activist investor Vintage Capital. Q2 2019 comparable sales showed a 1.8 percent improvement from the 3.3 percent decline posted in the first quarter. The Denver-based chain also appointed Paul J.B. Murphy III as its new CEO effective October 3 to deliver stronger results and appease investors.

In September, Vintage Capital made a hostile buyout offer of $519M, which Red Robin’s Board rebuffed.
