GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alert your taste buds! Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin) is two weeks away from bringing even more craveable gourmet burgers to the Rochester, N.Y. area. Located just off of Long Pond Road on Greece Ridge Center Drive near the Barnes & Noble in The Mall at Greece Ridge, and seconds from Ridge Road West and Route 390, the newest Red Robin will open on Monday, January 13 at 11 a.m. To help celebrate the grand opening of the new restaurant, Red Robin will donate all sales of its signature Freckled Lemonade® from Monday, January 13 to Sunday, January 19, to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding cures for all kids with cancer.
Red Robin – known as the Gourmet Burger Authority – 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. Red Robin introduced the Smoke & Pepper Burger nationally in early November, the first of its Finest Gourmet Burger Line. Inspired by the 2013 Best of the Bash Award Winner at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE (SOBEWFF) Amstel Light Burger Bash, the Smoke & Pepper Burger features a half-pound Black Angus burger seasoned with Alderwood smoked sea salt and topped with freshly black-peppered bacon, extra sharp Cheddar and house-made Smoke & Pepper ketchup, served on a buttered and toasted ciabatta bun.
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 Greece 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 $65 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 350 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
