Red Robin – known as the Gourmet Burger Expert – offers more than two dozen
innovative gourmet burgers served with Bottomless Steak Fries^® (which means
free refills!) and more than 100 different toppings for guests to customize
their favorite burger. Some of the most popular burgers are the Royal Red
Robin Burger^® topped with a fresh fried egg and Red's Tavern Double with its
signature styles, including the Fiery Ghost Tavern Style that uses the ghost
pepper, one of the world's hottest chile peppers. While Red Robin has been
grilling up gourmet burgers for more than 40 years, the menu also offers a
variety of salads, entrees, soups and wraps made with the freshest
ingredients, many of which are made in-house.

Red Robin also offers several signature beverages including Red Robin's
Freckled Lemonade, which has been a guest favorite since it was added to the
menu more than 20 years ago. The Freckled Lemonade, a refreshing blend of
sweet strawberries and tangy Minute Maid^® Lemonade, is available for $3.99
and includes free bottomless refills. All Freckled Lemonade sales during grand
opening week at the new Norridge, Ill. restaurant will benefit Alex's Lemonade
Stand Foundation. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was created by 4-year-old
childhood cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott, who began raising money
through her front yard lemonade stand to help doctors on their way to finding
cures for all kids with cancer. Alex's mission continues through Alex's
Lemonade Stand Foundation.

About Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade
stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). In 2000,
4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise
money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that
first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national
fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country
carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a
registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling
Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 pediatric cancer research
projects nationally. For more information on Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation,
