Red Robin Burger Works Opens Downtown in former Boloco Burriotos Space – More Coming

1028 19th Street, NW

Ed. Note: This is the former Boloco Burritos space that abruptly closed in December. I stopped by yesterday and was told more Red Robin’s are coming too.

From a press release:

“Even more residents and workers in Washington, DC will be able to enjoy their fill of the gourmet, fast and heavenly burger experience – a place where burger lovers can delight in a variety of fire-grilled creations using fresh, unique ingredients that made Red Robin® restaurants famous. Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin) today announced that a second Washington, DC-area Red Robin Burger Works® will open on March 23, 2015 at 1028 19th Street, NW in the Golden Triangle.

The new 19th and L Street location remixes the classic atmosphere of Red Robin restaurants, which has welcomed guests for more than four decades, in a quick-serve dining format with a modern twist: gourmet, mouth-watering burgers, starting at $4.99, and fries in under five minutes from when you order. Nearby Residents and workers will be able to “Get Their Quick Fix of YUMMM®” at Red Robin Burger Works and enjoy many of Red Robin’s signature burgers, such as the Whiskey River® BBQ burger, Royal Red Robin Burger® (topped with a fresh fried egg), the Banzai Burger® with grilled pineapple or the Guacamole Bacon burger.

Hours for the new location are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, Friday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. In addition to breakfast options in the morning, the restaurant’s full menu will be offered all day.

“We are thrilled to open the newest Red Robin Burger Works location and bring our delicious burgers to an even larger segment of Washington, DC residents,” said Robert Geresi, Vice President of Operations, BurgerWorks. “Now, even more DC metro area residents will enjoy having a fantastic, new option for speedy service, while experiencing Red Robin’s signature gourmet burgers. The Burger Works team understands the importance of this offering to time-crunched lunch guests – and we promise to have our Golden Triangle guests on their way back to the office in under five minutes from when they order.”

In addition to the new 19th St. location, Red Robin Burger Works also can be found at 429 L’Enfant Plaza, SW”

  • Here’s a forward scouting report from a fellow on my team, from yesterday: “As someone who goes to the real deal somewhat regularly, it’s a mighty respectable lunch version of Red Robin. The burger was good, the fries had some good seasoning, the overall menu selection was impressive, wait time was very short – though it was just before the lunch rush – and the meal was just under $10. And at just two blocks away, I’m going to be going back often. Mercy upon my poor health.”

    but this doesn’t answer the most important question of all… do they have bottomless fries like at the sit down locations in the suburbs?

    Who are these people whose mouth’s uncontrollably fill with water?

    Oh good. There really has been a lack of burger places in this area of town.

    • They’re a little behind the curve, but if we can support Atlanta style pizza, I’m sure we can support mediocre strip mall outlet burgers.

    Could there be any more FlackSpeak® in this press release?
