Red Robin MenifeeThe Red Robin restaurant in the Countryside Marketplace, opened for the first time today, as a soft-opening, serving only invited guests. The soft opening continues through Sunday, with the grand opening on Monday.

The company sent invitations out to various folks in Menifee. I'm not sure how they chose whom to send invitations to, but mine was addressed to my corporate name "Clear Digital Media".

The place was pretty packed in. Looking at the kitchen area, they must have had 15-20 people working back there. The restaurant has 60 servers hired, broken out into 14 teams, including a bevy of trainers.

As part of the soft opening, food was free. The purpose of the invitations was to give their staff five days of live training. In exchange, customers were advised that there could be delays while trainers gave out instructions, along with the expected mistakes and glitches. But I found that our service went along just fine. And the food was pretty much on par with what I've found at the Red Robin in Temecula. And you still get the bottomless-fries.

Here's some photos...
