    Can’t wait to see your other bday freebies! I can’t believe they had the pretzel bun! Seems like everyone is doing it now. If only it was on the menu permanently.

  2. birthday freebies are so fun! i took a page from your book and went wild with it earlier this year and yeah, i went to red robin with tc. i’ll probably go again next year!

    can’t wait to see your other posts….

    Hi Kirbie – The pretzel bun does seem to be popping up everywhere. I am sad it’s not permanently on most menu’s though. There’s still Stacked!

    Hi CC – All of the freebies just make your birthday feel a little bit more special. I’ve got a couple of new ones up my sleeve this year, too (and a look at some of the changes from year’s past freebies).

  4. Happy Birthday, Mary and Jake! I always order the Whiskey River burger too, that’s my favorite of theirs. Good to know about the free birthday burger, I’ll have to take them up on that. 🙂

    Thank you, Kathy! Yes, free birthday foods are the best!

    A lot of places have reduced their birthday offerings down to 1/2 off offers or Buy One, Get One, but Red Robin has remained good about their free birthday burgers. I have to admit, I love their Whiskey River BBQ Burger (with Gardenburger patty, of course!) and don’t even bother with their limited time burgers anymore! It was really nice of them to let you both use your birthday burgers, but they’ve always been very accommodating, so I shouldn’t be that surprised.
