Service was good, but I felt the food was over priced. I had a cilantro lime chicken burger and the chicken was delicious, but super thin! For the price, I would've expected a nice thick piece of juicy chicken. Shakes and malts were good as to be expected at a diner. I think I would give at least 4 stars... More

I'm a Jersey girl and just love that diners persevere and flourish. They provide a clean, well-lighted place for good comfort food. And hopefully a little quirkiness and humor. Red Rock has a solid following of locals - what more can you ask. Kids, teens, families, first dates all seemed to show up in the few hours we sank into... More

I should have read the first review. Vegetarians Beware. First, the 70's - 80's music was disappointing in a 50's style diner. Second, our waitress couldn't help she talked like Elmer Fudd but her service skills could improve immensely. I ordered the veggie sandwich with no cheese. I said, I'm allergic to dairy at least 3 times. I was happy... More

If you're a vegetarian you'll be disappointed in the veggie melt and the veggie burger. Overall, stick with the diner classics (their beef is pretty good, it's sourced locally). Awesome decor.

Was looking for something different and local to the area so we stopped in here for lunch, typical diner style restaurant with a large menu full of plenty of choices! My wife ordered the corned beef on Rye and I ordered the Rueben, when our food arrived my wife's order was wrong they had brought her a Reuben also and... More

This little diner had a nice variety of meals. The fried shrimp dinner was quite good and definitely filled me up, as it came with a dinner salad, bread, vegetable and starch. Staff was courteous and we received prompt service.

Went here for breakfast before going on a ride on the Harley, set up like a 50s cafe. The staff were nice and the service was good. The food was good as well left there full and ready for a long bike ride, perfect way to start the day!

We were told this was the place to eat and it was across the street from our Comfort Suites hotel. We had a good meal and the service was great. 50's photos on the walls, good parking in front.

Every town needs a good, reliable diner, and Carbondale is lucky to have the Red Rock. Good food and good service and a menu with enough variety make it a place we can count on.
