While other chains are pulling back, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers just keeps growing. This morning, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers -- which got its start outside the University of Washington in the '40s, but moved its national headquarters to Greenwood Village in 1996 -- is opening its 22nd Colorado restaurant at 6795 South Cornerstar Way in the new Cornerstar Mall in Aurora.
As part of the grand-opening celebration, the Aurora outlet will be hosting a Burgers With a Heart fundraiser to benefit the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
