    Red Robin is overrated, but not bad.

    I haven't been to Red Robin in 5+ yrs. Is it still good. For the price of Five Guys you get to sit down and their burgers used be just as good as 5 Guys in my experience.

    Red Robin certainly isn't bad, but people are constantly putting it on a pedestal, and I don't understand why. It's just a decent burger joint. I feel the same way about 5 Guys (although I rate Red Robin higher than 5 Guys).

    This thread makes me jealous with the amount of burger joint options Americans have.

    If anything Red Robin burgers are underrated. @quadrunner

    So far Teddy's Bigger Burgers has zero vote. It's in Hawaii so maybe that's why.

    Yeah. There really isn't a point in adding something that isn't a national chain. The burger joints that more posters have had an opportunity to try are obviously going to get more votes.

    How does the price of Five Guys in the US compare to other burger chains? I had one over here (UK) for the first time a couple of weeks ago and loved it, but it was 2-3 times the price of a McDs or a Burger King. I was happy to pay because the difference in quality was clear but I was surprised at the cost when I went to pay.

    Sorted my hangover out a treat, that’s always worth an extra few quid..l

    It is the same over here. Five Guys is way more expensive than McDonald's.

    Wendy's has almost as many votes as In-N-Out? Philistines.

    We don't have the obvious favorites (5 guys, in-n-out, shake shack, etc) out here in the Philistines. My vote goes to Wendys. For the better tasting fast food chain I had? I'd go with Carl's Jr. But like A&W, they left the Philistines. Before A&W packed up and left, they went into desperation mode cutting down prices like crazy. I member ordering bacon cheeseburger and a rootbeer float for like a $1.30.

    There is one in my area that I'm surprised is not in the poll call Steak N' Shake.

    Been there many times so I'd thought other Sherdoggies might have tried it.
