Did you hear the one about the hungry Taste Tester who went to Red Robin without knowing how many calories were on the menu? Yep, I did this, and now that Red Robin has released nutrition information on their latest sensation, the Steak Slider, I feel like I’ve been bitch-slapped and spit on by the dish that cost me 2,048 calories.

Since I can’t have do-over and order a salad instead, excuse me while I celebrate the delectable tastiness of this poor food choice. Red Robin sure knows how to make a kick-ass, artery clogging meal! Everything was great, right down to the little cup-o-coleslaw. Steak Sliders come on a soft mini bun with Swiss cheese, Chipotle mayo, and deep fried onion straws (sinister). The sirloin steak medallions are juicy and tender with no fatty gristle. Forget about chopped meat. It’s all steak, baby!
So do I look fat in this?
NOPE! I indulged while enjoying some much needed time with Health-hater Husband and I don’t regret it. I had a blast, right down to the very last onion straw, but I also limit my greedy on most days and train hard all week long. Just take this as a public service announcement to watch those restaurant calories. If uncontrolled greediness and lethargic laziness is a daily event in your life, you will most definitely look fat in Red Robin Steak Sliders.
