A real good dinner

We hav eaten at the Red Rock several times in the last four years and have found it have consistently good food and service. Of course you have to filter that through the fact that we come here for greasy burgers and the bacon & eggs and all of that "unhealthy " but great tasting food. This... read more

Have been there several times in the past 9 months. Seems some better server training and a little more attention to food quality would help out. It's a local iconic eatery. Please step it up!

It was a nice '50s diner with good service and average food. It was quiet and a good place to have conversation with family. I would possibly try something different next time.

Yummy chili and onion rings. If you crave chili and in the area, this diner will satisfy that urge and more. Looking for that retro, throwback diner? Look no further. Easy access right off Highway 82, eleven miles from Glenwood Springs.

This is a very fun old school diner that makes you feel you've stepped back in time. Shakes and malts, burgers and fries, this place has good food and a swell atmosphere.

Six guys went to eat here before playing golf. An eclectic bunch that were all happy with their selections that ranged from ham&eggs, omelets, biscuits and gravy, cranberry juice, etc. Waitress was talkative and efficient. Décor was pure old time diner with shiny chrome and plastic seats. Basically everything a real diner should be.

We ate there several times while in Carbondale. As for something to be cooked a certain way and that is how they cook it, one of the few. Big menu, very good food. Friendly and good food.

We were looking for a place to stop for lunch on our way to Aspen and discovered the Red Rock Diner. We were greeted immediately and our drink orders were taken. I had a cheeseburger which is made with local sourced beef that was excellent (the roll was soft and delicious) and my husband had a grilled turkey and swiss... More
