GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colorado , February 21, 2012 (press release) – Bacon lovers rejoice! It’s a perfect time to satisfy the often-utilized, undiscovered sixth taste bud – your bacon-buds! Today, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin) announced their newest burger that will squash any bacon lover’s strongest craving – the Big Melt Bacon Burger – available for a limited time only. The burger is topped with four slices of applewood smoked bacon, Cheddar and Swiss cheese, mushrooms and onions sautéed in barbecue sauce, crisp lettuce and ranch dressing, and served on an onion bun.

“My inspiration for the burger came from a recipe I used to make at backyard barbeques when I would add barbecued onions and mushrooms to the top of a steak,” said Red Robin’s executive chef Dave Woolley. “The combination of flavors is so delicious on a steak, and even better on a burger.”

To share the YUMMMiness of the Big Melt Bacon Burger with guests across the country, Red Robin will run its latest advertising campaign from Feb. 29 through March 22. During this time, the Big Melt Bacon Burger will be available for a special limited-time-only discounted price of $6.99. As part of the campaign, Red Robin will run TV ads featuring the burger on channels like the Food Network, USA, TBS, Bravo, Travel Channel, ABC and NBC.

Along with the burger, Red Robin introduced their newest entrée, Baja Shrimp Tacos, with ancho-seasoned shrimp, fresh avocado slices, shredded cabbage, diced tomato and a drizzle of chipotle lime sauce, wrapped in three flour tortillas. Both menu items are available for a limited time only through April 29.
