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

The food served here is what you would typically find at a diner. I had a malt and a philly steak sandwich. The food was good. The waitress was fast and friendly. It was a good place to stop after a long drive to relax and have a bite to eat.

I so wanted to like this place. I usually love diners, but not this place. We just stopped in for dessert with plans to go back for breakfast. Glad we just spent money on dessert. Pies were supposed to be homemade. When quizzed further the fruit pies where made there, but the cream pies were from a distributor. Three of... More

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.
