The official photo of Donovan Duggins' Mt Vesuvius Burger at Red Robin.Well, almost.
You might recall my posts from December about Donovan Duggins, a Robinson Middle School eighth grader who won the Red Robin Kid's Cookoff with his burger creation.
On Tuesday, Red Robin will officially add Donovan’s burger to its menu, where it will stay until Sept. 11. You’ll recall that the burger Donovan invented is topped with crumbled blue cheese, bacon, provolone cheese and Lava Sauce, made by combining barbecue sauce, hot sauce, garlic powder and paprika
Donovan, whose picture will be featured on table signs throughout the company, gets to celebrate the addition with a private party and tasting on Tuesday night and says he’ll probably continue using his gazillion dollars worth of Red Robin gift cards he won in his prize package toward the purchase of his own creation.
Never miss a local story.
Wait. Shouldn’t he get the burger for free whenever he wants it?
“Hey, yeah,” he said with a laugh. “Maybe I should start a petition.”
Wichita’s Red Robin is in the Waterfront development at 9990 E. 13th Street.Donovan's winning moment in 2010. He also won the Peoples' Choice award.
