Best burgers around

Amazing burgers...so fresh and the waffle fries are great too. Old roadhouse type setting with a nice sized outdoor screened in porch. Be prepared to pay cash only(ATM inside).

Went to redamaks with the kids. We waited over 20 minutes just to get drinks. We ordered the triple Velveeta cheese burger, two Rubens and a kids chicken nuggets meal. Everything was just ok. I have had so much better. Overall its a tourist attraction.

This place has great variety on the menu but the burgers are great (note they are served in wax paper and are the good type of greasy). Good selection of beer on tap

As kids, our parents often took us on vacation in Michigan. We couldn't go home to Chicago unless we stopped at Redamak's. As a college student, I would stop at Redamak's on my way home at the end of the school year. I took my husband there for his first time. And now we take our kids to Redamak's. I... More

I've been coming here since I was a kid & the food has remained the same-Great!! The cheeseburgers are made with velveeta, but all their food is tasty. You can sit inside or outside in screened patio. They close Oct 1st & reopen March 1st every year. You won't be disappointed at Redamak's!!

It's more of a tradition to get here than anything. They have really good burgers but it cost a little too much for what you get.

Hamburgers were very good! It was raining so the ceilingi was leaking, they decided to put a bucket on the table next to us. Nothing wrong with it, out of 5 stars, I'll take one star off for ATM fees and one for the leak on the table. But I would come back

My wife and I were traveling north on the Red Arrow Highway and stumbled upon Redamak's. The place is clean and very interesting--lots of stuff on the walls to get your attention. I ordered the yellow perch wrap with a house salad. My wife ordered a house salad. The salad was made with one of the larger, softer leaf lettuces.... More

Yes, it is just a burger, or whatever else you want on the varied menu, and yes I do not like the fries ( I don't like any crinkle cut fries, I do tots), but it is a tradition started years back and makes me happy every time we go; even with the wait. We stopped on the way out... More

Just a burger place that is over-rated. Had better burgers at many other places. The French Fries were just OK. Waitress was friendly and good.
