If you're a fan of bleu cheese, you might have tried this tangy burger option from Red Robin. Unfortunately, it's no longer on the menu. And if you had other favorites at the restaurant chain, we have more bad news: Red Robin axed 55 menu items in June, and they won't be coming back after the coronavirus pandemic is over.

This is what it sounds like: a burger patty with a quesadilla in place of a bun. You won't be surprised to learn that this offering boasted a whopping 1,770 calories, so its loss might not be such a bad thing.

This limited-time burger, available only in North and South Carolina, was topped with chili and coleslaw. Sadly, it's now a distant memory.

Calling this a "burger" might be a stretch—it was just a slice of pineapple, with cheese, on a bun. The Hula Burger and the Filet-O-Fish were both introduced during Lent, but the seafood option proved much more popular.
