I suppose that if the fries were truly "endless" then the full calorie potential is simply limited by how much of a REAL MAN you are, sissy!

Infinite fries for finite calories?  Interesting...

Yeah if the fries are endless so is the calorie count, cholesterol, etc.

So essentially, the calorific content of each fry decreases as you eat more of them. If you only eat a few of them, they have a lot of calories, but if you eat a shiat-ton of them you're good. Is that how it works?

After 14 servings, they just start giving you styrofoam.  You don't notice....

All of them, actually.

Does Red Robin have any plans to introduce flavor? More of bleh stills equals bleh.
 
2014-07-30 12:34:53 PM  
Red Robin sucks! The "endless fries" are what drew us in. Too bad they taste like cardboard. The burgers were just like any other burger anywhere else - not terrible, but not great. I'll waste my 3,500 calories somewhere else, thanks.

Eventually you get so full that each extra fry just remains lodged in your esophagus. Then, once your body is through processing the other fries, the calories required to process the "new" fries balances out their calories

Sounds like a great post-marathon meal. Although I'd go for a chocolate shake, possibly mint chip.

Always be wary of any food chain that uses fries as a selling point.

KidneyStone: That much sodium is what, like 1/2 a pack of Ramen?

/No, don't go posting the real information, just let it go


I can't.  I just can't.
Half pack of Ramen is 875 mg of sodium.

Here's how Red Robin's endless fries work, per my last visit to Red Robin

* Your entree is served with a third of an order of fries in a great big metal cone designed to make it look like you're getting more than you are

* Place an order for more fries as your food is served

* Server comes by three times without fries, says they'll be coming soon. You ask twice more about the fries after you get tired of waiting.

* First refill order of fries appears after a 30 minute wait, long after you have finished your first order of fries and your entire entree

(My drink also only got two refills in that half hour; my son had one refill which he had to wait 15-20 minutes for, and my wife's food came with a completely different side to that she'd asked for.)

Endless fries my ass. What they are is less fries than normal, and a normal serving of fries if you're willing to jump through hoops. The burgers are nice, but the service at Red Robin is shocking.

The shake sounds disgusting, but if they had a BLTA croissant and endless onion rings offer, they'd have to have a police detail on site at all times to keep my fattie ass out of there.

FTFA: "I don't think people really know just how bad these meals can be in restaurants," Einstein says...

Nobody thinks this meal is healthy... no one, nowhere, ever.  You're not performing some grand public service, or helping out your fellow man.  If anything, you're making this grotesquely awesome burger combo known to people who didn't before, and will now go try one, thus having the exact opposite effect you set out to achieve.

In another one of his articles, he stated "I don't think people really know just how hot fire can be..."

74 g sesame bun
1/5 cup pickle relish
1/4 cup sliced dill pickle
2 oz american cheese
1/5 cup sliced red onion
1 cup tomato
1/4 cup iceberg lettuce
213 g boca patties
1/4 cup jalapeno


No fried egg on top? Go fark yourselves, burger hacks.

Substitute the fires with a small side salad and you'll be fine

I've never left a Red Robin and not felt like I was about to explode. That food is too damn heavy as it is.
 
2014-07-30 12:43:30 PM  
But, are the burgers fried beyond dry ? I hate hamburgers that are just this side of charcoal.
I'm almost seventy but would give it a try if we had a Red Robin here.

HaywoodJablonski: You sound morbidly obese and angry


I'm not morbidly obese, or even obese. I can wrap my index finger and thumb around my wrist and touch them while still leaving enough space to put several fingers in between.

Angry? No, I'd term it more as mildly annoyed. I don't like companies advertising things that they then refuse to fulfil.

The caloric intake of each fry follows an asymptotic curve, because as the total mass of body plus fries increases, the spacetime curvature and consequent dilation of perceived time from the frame of reference of the wait staff increases, leading to an event horizon where the delivery of the french fries appear to slow down and almost completely stop before reaching the black hole of the customer's mouth.  At some point past this the laws of physics break down, and it's theorized that all french fries are ejected through a 'white hole' into an adjacent universe.

2014-07-30 12:46:22 PM  
And 95% of the people who will eat this will have a Diet Coke to wash it down.

It's oh so much simpler than that. After the first third-portion of fries, the energy expended in getting the wait staff to give you any more fries is greater than the energy in the portion of fries you will, eventually, receive.

You have to request "no pink, a little pink, or pink" in the middle. They won't serve it rare, for obvious (madcowecoli) reasons, but they'll cook it to order, in my experience.

How many calories in the infinite amount of ranch dressing (with Red Robin seasoning, aka salt) to go with those infinite fries?

thefatbasturd: Yeah if the fries are endless so is the calorie count, cholesterol, etc.


No, the endless fries deal is based on Verizon's "unlimited bandwidth" model... after you reach a secret cap, they only bring you one fry every 20 minutes...

All that means is you either have small wrists, or short fingers.

whatever, fatty. the fryers at red robin can't keep up when people are shoving fries into their mouth with the heels of both hands.

LessO2: And 95% of the people who will eat this will have a Diet Coke to wash it down.


I'd put money that they actually wash it down with regular Coke. I drink diet coke myself because I cannot stand the flavor of regular Coke and how it leaves my mouth feeling sticky / scummy afterwards. I get treated like a leper for ordering diet coke by pretty much everybody.

I've never had that problem... the one down here you don't need to ask or anything, as long as you keep eating them they just keep bringing them to you.

I'm going to guess it doesn't vary by 800%, so the point is moot and you killed the joke.

All that means is you either have small wrists, or short freakishly long fingers.
