It’s going to get “hot” in the days ahead, thanks to several upcoming chain restaurant menu additions.
Red Robin Gourmet Burger locations will be offering the “Red Ramen Burger,” a grilled beef patty flavored with soy and topped with a chili-pepper-infused slaw. Served on a “bun” of crispy ramen noodles, the Red Ramen Burger will be available through June 5.

Cheshire, Conn.-based Wayback Burgers wants to get the word out to all cheeseheads – the chain has announced their newest milkshake flavor, the Cheeesy Gold Milkshake. Blended from milk and hand-dipped vanilla ice cream, Cheeesy Gold takes its flavor and name from the addition of Cheese Whiz as a flavoring agent.
In addition to being a new drink choice, Wayback is promoting the shake as a dip for its made-in-house potato chips and other side items.
There are Wayback Burgers locations at Carew Street and St. James Avenue in east Springfield, on Prospect Hill Road in East Windsor, Conn., and at 10 Hartford Avenue in Granby, Conn.
