Copy Cat Red Robin Burger, The Best Burger Recipe, Money Saving RecipesOne of my very favorite places to eat is Red Robin. Just about every time we go I order the Banzai Burger or their yummy chicken wraps. I decided to create one of my favorites in the comfort of my own home and the results were down right scrumptious!  I added sauteed onions to my creation, typically Red’s, doesn’t have onion on their Banzai Burger, but every time I order it they do! I think it adds an extra little somethin’ somethin’. I hope you enjoy this juicy, mouth watering burger, grilled to perfection, smothered in teriyaki sauce on a bed of lettuce, topped with sauteed sweet onions, grilled pineapple, fresh garden tomato and a slice of Tillamook cheddar cheese. I totally just made myself hungry! 😉 Enjoy.
