“The success of Red Robin’s marketing initiatives and solid operational performance of our restaurant teams contributed to strong results in the third quarter and allowed us to outperform the casual dining category in an intensely competitive market,” said Steve Carley, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc.

We were especially pleased with the performance of our Tavern Double™ platform, which is our most successful new platform launch and continues to offer innovation and everyday value to our guests while reinforcing Red Robin’s burger authority. Given our progress so far this year, we are on track to meet our objectives for 2012, including continued operational discipline, building our new product pipeline, elevating the guest experience and expanding our restaurant base through new unit development.”
