Plenty of food at very reasonable prices. The burgers were so big we decided on omelets instead. Before you order a burger be sure you see one first. You might be surprised.

We have eaten at the Red Hut in the past. It is okay. But, this last weekend it was impossible. The parking lot was full. Cars were aggressive and we could not park. We moved on. Ate at Berts. It was good.
