Our presence was definitely not welcome. We left after 15 mins without ever being acknowledged. Very uncomfortable with mean stares bordering on hostile.

A fun place to eat. People working were very kind and personable. Food was great! Fun for families. Lots of things to look at. Milkshakes/ice cream a must.

Red Light Garage is a quaint, old school burger joint with really good milkshakes. Try the huckleberry. You won't be sorry.

Interesting little restaurant/antique store! Our kids wanted to stop & check the place out & we did! The burgers, fries & grilled cheese were really good! The service was good & it was fun to chat with the locals. The hours on the website were incorrect...and had indicated that the place had closed at three. Things were still running strong... More

Great place to eat and look at all of the wall collections throughout the establishment. The taco salad was awesome!

Decor is fun. All the other good reviews are about lunch so maybe that's why breakfast was just ok. They did not greet us when we walked in. There are only five tables & a bar to sit at. Our ketchup bottle was already on the table & it was greasy. Our waitress never checked on us to see how... More

Although the meal ordered was simply a burger and chicken strips with beer and pop, it was the best burger ever eaten. Service was excellent and priced very reasonable. Decor was set to match the history of the building, i.e. an old garage,just simply fantastic. Would come back regularly if I lived in the area. Owner and personnel will easily... More

It looks like one of those places you aren't sure about when you first see it, but the staff is friendly and the food is good. Definitely a place to grab a snack or meal that is tasty and relatively inexpensive.

I stopped in here and had some huckleberry ice cream on a road trip to Washington state. I hate getting huckleberry flavored things because the flavor is usually artificial and from a syrup and does not resemble huckleberry taste at all. I am so glad I got this ice cream it was absolutely delicious! The little restaurant was really cute... More

This is a landmark in Wallace and we have eaten in Wallace before but this time we ate here. Great greeting when you walk in and great service through out the meal. I had the avocado burger with fries. My husband ordered the Bacon cheese burger..with a milk shake. I had iced tea. Both of our burgers were so juicy... More
