Red Robin is gross. I don't understand the appeal of that place. Ive tried it 4 times because so many rave about it, and it was disgusting each time.

BRGR had a stand at the Big Pour, but by the time I was ready to enjoy a hamburger the line was unreasonable....i'm still kind of upset about that.

No, dude. Just stick with the bison. You will kick yourself for thinking you had to try beef.

I have always been pleased with red robin, actually.

Yeah.. but.. $13 for a burger is a bit steep for an every day purchase.

Eh. Its true. I'd probably just go to five guys if I was getting beef, though.

I've been to Red Robin once and had the garlic mushroom burger, and absolutely wuvved it. The fries were quite pedestrian though.

Tessaro's sells just beef hamburgers (which are quite tasty). BRGR has beef, ostrich, lamb, bison... a wide variety. Burgatory has bison, not sure if anything else. Wingharts has veggie and chicken.

Of all of them...I would have to rank the beef hamburgers: Burgatory, Tessaro's/Wingharts, BRGR. The first 3 are all very close. BRGR, I like their other burgers better than their beef.

And if you have never had bison, you are seriously missing out. It. Is. AWESOME.

If it is well done, no, it isn't awesome. I't's like shoe leather.

Bison is so lean, to cook it well done ruins it.

I like bison burgers for the obvious health reasons, and the fact that once you pile on cheese and assorted other toppings, the difference between it and beef is hardly noticeable.

Well beef with cheese is less healthy than bison with same cheese.

Go with cheese made from 2% milk. Makes it even a little more healthy for you.
