Stopped here on Sunday over lunch (open 9-2 Sundays). Had the Lot-O-Burger or commonly known as a Fat Boy. Tasted awesome. The chili on the burgers are fantastic. I had the chili cheese fries on the side and they weren't as good. They opted to use cheese slices for the cheese on the chili cheese fries which wasn't what I... More

I have eaten here many times over the years. Omelettes are great. The gyro platter is good and comes with a heap of fries and small Greek salad. You can choose beef lamb chicken or vegetarian. The gyro itself is a bit bland. Always seem to get the same friendly waitress. She is a gem. It has a typical diner... More

The staff are friendly, the food is always fresh, and the sizes are great. I go here with family for Saturday breakfast and have eaten here for burgers and fries. Cole slaw is super tangy and very good. The place is more like a diner than anything else. These types of places are getting harder and harder to find.

If you are looking for a burger and more joint in Winnipeg this is a hands down joint to check out. Prices are VERY reasonable and you get A L O T to eat. Come hungry. This 50's style diner is a family favourite. We only started going there 2 years ago because word of mouth had alot of praise.... More

I've been to the Red Top several times and have tried many items on the menu but for me. The best option will always be the Red Top loaded burger platter with gravy on the fries. It is by far 1 of the best burgers you will ever taste.

Been going to the Red Top for almost fifty years now. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed. A great place where regulars meet everyday. Some of the staff have been there for as long as I can remember. Real. Iles des Chenes Manitoba

This was your typical greasy diner. I've been for a lunch and a breakfast and both were sub-par. The food was too greasy for my liking and took too long to come to table. Won't go back, we have too many great restaurants in the peg to waste time and money on this place.

The breakfast special and fries and pretty good. But the burgers are awful the buns always taste dry and the chilli doesn't have a taste. Every time I come I always get a burger thinking the last one tasted bad because of the cook, but I'm always disappointed. Time to try the chicken and spaghetti I guess.

This legendary...family owned and run...meeting and eating establishment has continually served top quality and generous down-home "culinary delights" for over 50 years. While new "guests" are always welcome by friendly and efficient staff...the Redder continues to be a very special meeting, almost daily, meeting place for the "regulars".
