Nostalgic atmosphere

The nostalgic atmosphere was cute but a bit tattered looking. The service was great, A nice variety of food and they offered all the typical old time fountain drinks too! My sandwich was overstuffed and delicious, served with a giant side of sweet potato fries(yummm) My partner had the homestyle... read more

While traveling, our family is huge fan of diners. Heard many good things about this Red Rock Diner. The waitress was polite and interested in our dining experience; seating and ordering was awesome. We ordered shakes, grilled cheeses, chicken quesadilla's and onion rings. The onion rings were refried, dark brown and hard. The quesadilla was stale and carboard'ISH. The waitress... More

We stayed at a nearby motel and ate supper here after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! We had speedy service and excellent food at a good price. I had the low carb pork chop which was grilled and juicy. The wife liked her fruity salad. Kids ate burgers and quesadillas. Large portions were what we... More

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 place is usually... 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.
