Love the drive in style and being greeted by "Red" the owner. They have some great hot dogs and lots of character. Their root beer is a bit flat, which is the reason for the four stars vs five stars. Cheap eats, great service, decent...More

Wonderful root beer, food, service and good prices. They are always busy but play 60's music so time passes quickly. You can eat in your car or sit at a picnic table or go through the drive through. It is a fun place to go

I love to go to Red's for Italian Beef sandwich. It is so good. Husband likes chicken strips, kids like the hot dogs. I enjoy sitting at picnic tables and listening to the oldies music. Red makes his own root beer is what Imhave heard....More

The service alone got me to write a review. I had never been here and asked to see a menu. The owner had me try a sample of his chili, which was great coney chili. Then he came over and told me about the history....More
