Wolverine is the best there is … at being delicious


As we’re on an unintentional licensing and merchandising spree, it seems only fitting to cap off the day with perhaps one of the stranger, but certainly most delicious, tie-ins: Red Robin’s Wolverine-themed hamburgers.

Not that Red Robin, although that would be wonderfully bizarre. No, this is the Colorado-based restaurant chain whose name is usually followed by Yummmmm! (seriously, you can’t think “Red Robin” without hearing that in your head). The company has partnered with 20th Century Fox’s The Wolverine to create two gourmet burgers inspired by the film.

The first is the “Berserker Burger” (above), which is topped with aioli, spicy pickles, Sriracha onion straws and Cheddar cheese on a brioche bun that — get this — has Wolverine claw marks in it. And then there’s the “Kuzuri Style Tavern Double,” which comes with samurai slaw, ginger garlic wonton strips and cilantro but, alas, no claw marks.As part of the partnership, Red Robin customers can buy a limited-edition The Wolverine gift card, which gets them a free movie ticket and enters them into a sweepstakes to win … I don’t know, bunch of stuff. Really, though, I’m only interested in the burgers.Kuzuri Tavern StyleBerserker Burger

They finally came up with a reason for me to visit Colorado.

And yet still no tie-in with Logan’s Roadhouse. You’d think that’d be a no-brainer.

wow nerds will buy any stupid thing

Red Robin is in more than a few states, including here in Indiana. Burgers are manly-sized and creatively topped, but cost $9-10 a pop, though they offer unlimited French-fry refills for diners who bring their own extra storage space. I’m glad I don’t live next door to one, else I’d be there weekly and on track to dying much earlier.

“…unlimited French Fry refills” – really? That’s real? Holy Cow! What does that mean “diners who bring their own storage space?”

@ Jason. He means Fat people. like me I always have to get seconds on fries there.

Unlimited fries!?
