Red Robin is out the back gate (to the south) from the Smithsonian's Udvar Hazy Center. It's easily reached via Va. 28 (go south) to US 50 west (you'll need to pull into the staff entrance for UHC -- immediately on your right, so that you can turn around and take the road to the Red Robin). Take the first left (light), and then the first left to reach the restaurant.
We went here following a showing of Rogue One at the UHC. The McDonalds at the UHC is, well, a McDonalds, so we prefer to go elsewhere. We found Red Robin uncrowded on a holiday afternoon. Our waitress was very pleasant, helpful, and quickly brought drinks, then food. The menu of burgers (and other stuff too) is extremely extensive, also reasonably priced!! I had the lettuce wrap burger -- it comes wrapped partially in tin foil so that you can pick it up easily without getting totally inundated with juices.
The burger was excellent, tasty, hot, done the way I'd ordered it. I ran out of fries before finishing the burger, and they feature "endless fries." Our server quickly brought another basked of piping hot fries. Delicious!
It's great for a business lunch, friends or family, etc. It's casual, but great food. The list of beer on tap is also extensive and ranges from light (and low alcohol) to dark and higher alcohol.
