With temperatures already on the rise, Red Robin’s newest burger styles promise to make this the hottest summer on record. Today, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc (Red Robin) spiced up their menu with the launch of the Fiery Ghost Style and the Cry Baby Style, expanding the popular Tavern Styles menu introduced in April. With these exciting new additions to its burger roster, Red Robin becomes the first national chain to use the ghost pepper, one of the world’s hottest chile peppers.
The ghost pepper, also known as ‘Bhut Jolokia‘- is estimated to range between 855,000 -1,000,000+ Scoville heat units. For comparison, a typical jalapeño pepper falls between 3,500 – 8,000 Scoville heat units.
Not for the weak of tongue, Red Robin’s two new styles each bring their own creative and innovative flavor combinations to the Gourmet Burger Expert’s menu:
Fiery Ghost Style
Red Robin has cooked up a new recipe for burger success with this boundary-pushing style sure to have you grabbing the nearest milkshake to cool down. The style’s star is one of the world’s hottest chile peppers – the ghost pepper, which teams up with both fresh-cut and fried jalapeños atop pepper jack cheese to round out this tour-de-fire.
Cry Baby Style
Onion-lovers prepare to shed tears of happiness! The Cry Baby Style ups the onion ante by combining crispy onion straws tossed in a unique Sriracha dry seasoning with even more onions sautéed in Cholula Hot Sauce. The one-two punch of crispy and sautéed onions are complimented by pepper jack cheese and a ghost pepper ketchup, warming up taste buds with the unique flavor of the ghost pepper without overwhelming levels of spice.
Proving that variety truly is the spice of life, guests can choose one of the two new Tavern Styles or any of the three original styles – Pig Out, Cantina Jack and Buzzalo – for just $1 more to style up their favorite Tavern Burger available for the everyday value of $6.99 with Red Robin’s signature Bottomless Steak Fries, which means free refills.
