We were traveling across country and looking for a place to get a bite to eat. I read the reviews of the Red Onion on trip advisor, so we decided to give it a try. At first, we drove past it, since it isn't very impressive from the outside, but we made our way back with the help of our... More

Left my IPAD at the restaurant and could not return to retrieve it. No problem... manager sent it to me UPS. Lunch on a Saturday was a treat. Whoever is in the kitchen really knows how to cook.

The menu may give you the impression that it is a fine dining restaurant, but it's actually a casual bistro. The entire menu is delicious, but my favorites are the smoked chicken dip, the coconut chicken and the penne from heaven. They have a regular dine in location just off of downtown Main Street and an express location on 32nd... More

I have been to the Red Onion several times, as I just cannot resist the temptation of eating their Philly Cheese Steak. I have tried too many other versions of the sandwich and they just do not compare to the Red Onion version, with the side of delicious pasta salad. The staff and management are always professional, courteous, and pleasant.

My husband had the steak salad, very good and I had the pork, but I found it done a bit too much for my liking. Everything was fresh and the ambiance is great, would defiinitely go... More

We enjoy the Red Onion Café--prices, food, service and atmosphere. ROC catered our 50th wedding anniversary luncheon and had rave reviews--smoked chicken dip was the best! Their prices are very reasonable and be sure to save room for dessert.

Love this place! Cool vibe and great food! You have to try their own salad dressings - awesome! I purchased a bottle to take home and my kids loved it, too! Great desserts, too!

If you're looking for a quaint urban dinning experience that has local flavor and culture, look no further than Red Onion Cafe. You will enjoy the menu variety and dinning atmosphere and service is always friendly and fast! They are not overpriced and portions are appropriate. Best dish for me is the Arkansas Smokehouse Chicken. Best dessert for me is... More
