Kodiak Jack’s is now offering a “Free Lunch, including unlimited fries” with purchase of the soup and salad bar for $6.99. It is an interesting ploy — free lunch only $7 — but by the unlimited fries, you know they are targeting Red Robin. So Let’s compare:
- The Salad: KJ’s salad bar is mediocre. You don’t get a salad with your burger at RR. Half a point for KJ’s
- The Burger: KJ’s burger is solid, perhaps better than RR in it’s basic form. But RR has all the fancy toppings, so we’ll call this one a draw.
- The Fries: KJ’s has unlimited fries, RR has bottomless fries. KJ’s fries, however, are skin on. Point for KJ’s.
- The Price: KJ’s charges $7 for all this. At RR you will pay $9-10 for the burger and fries. Point for KJ’s
At least for lunch, Kodiak Jack’s just blew Red Robin out of the water.
