With summer officially drawing to a close, Red Robin has launched a spicy waffle-topped sandwich that puts a tasty twist on traditional Southern cuisine. Chicken and waffles has quickly become a beloved brunch dish outside of the Southern US and now restaurants are tinkering with the concept in new and unexpected ways. Red Robin's own version of the dish uses international ingredients for a global take on the savory recipe.

The Bee's Knees Finest Chicken is a spicy waffle-topped sandwich available for a limited time. The dish consists of a fluffy Belgian waffle bun topped with a honey-glazed, tempura-fried chicken breast. The sandwich also features shredded romaine lettuce, onions, citrus-marinated tomatoes and a spicy jalapeno relish.

The spicy new sandwich demonstrates how restaurants are using warm and comforting dishes to transition to their fall menus.
