Red Robin will open a new restaurant in summer 2016 at 3008 Route 50 in Saratoga Springs, on the site that was once Uno Pizzeria & Grill, which closed last year.
“We can confirm that Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews is planning to open a new restaurant in Saratoga Springs in summer 2016,” said Les Lehner, senior vice president of real estate at Red Robin.
He said the restaurant is tentatively slated to open in July. It is located on 1.3 acres of property.
Lehner said renovations for the site include improving the patio space with lighting; moving the dumpster and enclosure areas; and enhancing the curb. The exterior will also be modified to have the Red Robin look and signs. There will not be a drive-through at the location.
The restaurant is expected to employ 80 full-time and part-time staff members, with 40 people maximum on any given shift. Hours of operation will vary.
