Red Robin executives and celebrity chef Robert Irvine chose Chef Brad Halsten of The Burger Dive located in Billings, MT as the recipient of Red Robin’s “Best of the Bash Award” at this year’s Amstel Light Burger Bash. The winning burger creation is a mouth-watering combination of blackened spice with bacon, beer battered onion ring, garlic basil mayo, goat cheese and arugula with Sriracha. As the winner of the Best of the Bash Award, Chef Halsten will receive $10,000, and in the future, his burger may appear on Red Robin’s premium burger menu.
The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s Amstel Light Burger Bash – presented by Pat LaFrieda Meats and hosted by Rachael Ray – is America’s most prestigious burger competition, which gives the country’s top culinary maestros and chefs the opportunity to display their creations and battle it out for burger supremacy. As a Platinum level sponsor of the festival, Red Robin is a natural fit for deciding which burger will take home the top prize at the Burger Bash®.
For the second year in a row, Red Robin invited all participants to submit their recipe for a chance to win $10,000 and have their build featured on Red Robin’s Finest premium burger menu. A panel of carefully selected judges, including celebrity chef and Food Network personality Robert Irvine, along with Red Robin executives chose and presented the winning chef with “Red Robin’s Best of the Bash Award” on the Burger Bash® stage on Friday, Feb. 21.
Red Robin has also awarded Derrick Deal the opportunity of a lifetime. The senior at Florida International University’s (FIU) Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management was declared the winner of Red Robin’s Golden Robin Contest and will join Red Robin at the Festival to serve a taste of his Bubblin' Brown Sugar Bar-B-Que Tavern Burger to Festival attendees. His winning recipe earned him a $10,000 scholarship, compliments of Red Robin, and the chance for his gourmet burger to be featured as a limited-time menu offering at participating Red Robin restaurants nationwide later this year. The Bubblin' Brown Sugar Bar-B-Que Burger is a delicious take on a tavern-style cheeseburger with southern charm, featuring brown sugar bacon, grilled red onions, sharp Cheddar cheese and Heinz Honey Barbecue Sauce.
No man should be denied his right to free burgers!
As a Red Robin Royalty member, not only will you receive a free burger during the month of your birthday, you'll be surprised and delighted throughout the year with exclusive rewards and great deals.

We're thrilled to debut Red Robin's Finest with the launch of our new Smoke & Pepper Signature Burger! Inspired by Chef Laurent Tourondel’s Smashed Smoked Burger, it's grabbing the attention of burger lovers everywhere.
The Daily Meal claims that the alderwood smoked sea salt that seasons the Black Angus patty gives the burger a "scintillating aroma reminiscent of a campfire." Combine that with Smoke & Pepper Ketchup, extra-sharp cheddar, and "pinking-sheared pickle planks," and you've got a "mighty fine feast" on your hands!
Red Robin’s Finest debut is Inspired by Chef Laurent Tourondel’s Smashed Smoked Burger — winner of the 2013 South Beach Wine & Food Festival® Best of the Bash burger competition. It beat out nine delicious burgers by top chefs, and inspired us to create the first masterpiece from Red Robin’s Finest.
The Smoke & Pepper Signature Burger is seasoned with smoked sea salt and topped with black-pepper bacon and extra-sharp Cheddar on a ciabatta bun with our house- made Smoke & Pepper ketchup.
In celebration of the launch Red Robin is giving away a trip for two to the 2014 SOBEWFF Amstel Light® Burger Bash - Enter the sweepstakes today!
