Red Robin Unlimited Fries? Huh?

RGC1982 | Dec 30, 2010 06:47 PM

After driving past it for nearly seven years, I convinced DH to give Red Robin a try. Truly the best onion rings we have had in a long time, and decently good burgers. But the fries -- OMG, they were dry and horrible. Worse than any kind of bagged frozen I had ever tasted. The thought that these things were once part of a potato that grew in the ground was hard to get my head around, as these things were so old and bad tasting. They had clearly spent the better part of two years in a freezer in a box. Worse, these were unlimited, and our waitress bragged about them being their "signature". How could they possibly get the onion rings so right, yet the fries so wrong? Anyone else have this experience?
