Red Robin is introducing innovative new flavors with the arrival of the Lava Queso Burger, Chocolate Covered Pretzel Milkshake and more. Plus, the MadLove Burger is making its triumphant return after fans have pleaded for nearly a year!

Starting March 25, burger meets queso with Red Robin’s new melty mashup, the Lava Queso Burger! Complete with chipotle aioli, caramelized onions, grilled poblanos and tomato, this decadent burger is topped with a flowing hot cascade of Red Robin’s new, deliciously creamy Queso Fundido, bun and all!

To celebrate the Lava Queso Burger, just in time for science fair season, Red Robin is rewarding parents who have experienced lava of another sort – those messy school science fair volcanoes – with a free Lava Queso Burger of their own. From April 2-9, head over to Red Robin’s Instagram and enter for a chance to win a free Lava Queso Burger from Red Robin*.

“The journey we started last year to enhance our recipes and cooking methods along with our recent ingredient upgrades to 85 percent of our menu only raised our commitment to crafting unforgettable food that makes our guests say YUMMM,” said Red Robin’s Executive Chef and VP of Culinary & Beverage Innovation Brian Sullivan. “Our Lava Queso Burger features a perfect harmony of flavors, from the zing of chipotle aioli to the creamy indulgence of our new Queso Fundido. You’ll need a fork and knife for this tableside experience that’s unlike any burger you’ve had before.”

For those craving something familiar with a twist, Red Robin’s signature MadLove Burger is back by passionate and popular demand. Featuring 10 layers of flavor, including freshly smashed avocado, candied bacon, jalapeno relish and a cheddar-and-parmesan crisp, Red Robin is bringing the love to all those fans who were downright mad when it left the menu this past year. Pair it with your favorite bottomless side and let your memories of its retirement wash away!

Sullivan continued, “Our guests love gourmet creativity, and they are at the heart of everything we do. While we occasionally retire burgers to make way for new innovations on our menu, we couldn’t deny the pleas from MadLove devotees. We heard our guests, and we’re proud to return this new-and-improved fan-favorite to its rightful place on our menu.”

In addition to the MadLove Burger and Lava Queso Burger, Red Robin’s latest menu additions showcase a variety of creative flavor combinations that can’t be missed, including:

  • Queso Fundido – Made in-house with spicy chorizo, fresh-grilled poblano peppers, cilantro and served with a pile of tortilla chips.
  • Grilled Blackened Salmon – Rich in flavor, our Atlantic salmon filet comes seasoned with Cajun spices and grilled to perfection. Served with garlic parmesan broccoli and crispy, hand-smashed parmesan potatoes.
  • Ocean Blue Patron Margarita – Cast away to island time with silver Patron tequila, Cointreau, pineapple juice, coconut, agave and lime juice topped with a float of Blue Curacao.
  • Chocolate Covered Pretzel Milkshake – This decadent blend of vanilla soft serve, chocolate, caramel and chocolate dipped pretzels is everything a milkshake should be. Topped with whipped cream, caramel, chocolate syrup and more mini chocolate covered pretzels.
