Red Robin Launches Fiery Ghost Pepper Burgers [Lunch Time]

Red Robin is offering brave guests the opportunity to pit themselves against the legendary Ghost Pepper—one of the world’s hottest—with two new burger offerings:

  • Fiery Ghost Style (left): Features a ghost pepper sauce, fried jalapenos and pepper jack cheese.
  • Cry Baby Style (right): features crispy onions straws tossed in sriracha dry seasoning with more onions sauteed in Cholula hot sauce, plus jack cheese and ghost pepper ketchup.

The Ghost Pepper ranks between 855,000 and 1,000,000 on the Scoville scale—making it around 300 times hotter than a jalapeño. However, we seriously doubt that the sauces on this burger will expose you to the full brunt of the pepper’s power. After all, a large chain like Red Robin can ill afford to have patrons getting sick in their restaurants on a regular basis.

The good news is that you can walk into a Red Robin right now and try it out for yourself.
