Tentative open date set for Red Robin's new Mall of Georgia location

A new restaurant is coming to the Mall of Georgia and the (tentative) opening date will be here before you know it.

Red Robin, a gourmet burger joint that has more than 500 locations nationwide, has been under construction in the mall's former Ruby Tuesday location for several months. On Monday, a Red Robin spokeswoman revealed a more specific timeframe for its opening.

"We anticipate construction on the location to be completed by late August," she said in an email. The restaurant would open shortly thereafter, she added.

The restaurant will be Red Robin's second in Gwinnett and fourth in metro Atlanta. Existing locations include one at 1250 Scenic Highway in Lawrenceville and others in Cumming and Newnan.
