Robot Burgers In Pasadena Don't Sound So Good

Not sure if this is from the same people who gave us the sometimes works, not that amazing robot burger flipping robot, but a new robot restaurant is opening in Pasadena.

I have no fond memories of what might be an earlier version of the robot and can't say I look forward to what looks like a very mediocre experience.

Pasadena Now has the full story here Autonomous AI-Powered Restaurant to Open in Pasadena
"Employing cutting-edge systems in food technology, both grill and fry stations at CaliExpress by Flippy will boast complete automation, driven by state-of-the-art proprietary artificial intelligence and robotics."

So, basically you can order your meal via an app and robots we'll make it with no human interference. I assume human staff we'll have to be there just in case anything goes wrong.
This is a gimmick and might be fun to try once. If it was implemented behind the scenes at some major fast food company it might go unnoticed.

CaliExpress by Flippy will be at 561 E. Green St. Pasadena and is currently taking reservations only.
Gotta say there's so many better options for food like I don't know The 19 Essential Pasadena Restaurants and Howlin' Ray's - Pasadena.
