Great lunch stop!

We stopped for lunch at the 32nd Street location during a long distance trip. I had the bruschetta and French onion soup and my spouse had the BLT with avocado sandwich with a strawberry/spinach salad. All items were made to order and made from quality ingredients. The only negative is the bread... read more

We eat at Red Onion frequently. The food is absolutely delicious. It is reasonable priced and is not just the old fast-food stuff. We prefer the Galena or 32nd street locations as they are a bit more casual and have a more casual menu. Lots of great salads, sandwiches and delicious pasta dishes. The bread is SOOOO good!

Good menu selection.food was very tasty. Lot to choose from. Either go early or late for lunch. We waited a bit too long. But worth it.

We were just wanting a light meal, like a salad. I had their Mandarin salad and Mel had the steak salad. It was amazing!! The coffee was very good. The atmosphere was so comfortable. And the people were great. We loved it and will go back.

Have never had a bad meal off this menu! Order the Smoked Chicken Dip for a light lunch, the Tuxedo Chicken Pasta for dinner, and a slice of Cheesecake for desert.

Various meal options, all with a high-end restaurant feel, yet priced right. Hands-down best house dressing- sweet Italian type- can't go without trying it. Restaurant is great for date night, lunch/dinner with friends/couples, or family. A sandwich, salad, soup version of the restaurant is available on 32nd street, as well, for quick lunches.

We have eaten at Red Onion Cafe in downtown Joplin several times over the past few years. We are always impressed with their service, food selections, and prices. Our waitresses have always worked hard to meet our special needs regarding food allergies. We plan on having many more meals at this location.

This place is consistently good. The service is usually good but our experience was not as good this time. Not bad enough to keep us from coming back but it put a damper on our 80th birthday celebration.

We visited as a large group for business. Service was great, food was average. I had the fried chicken salad and strawberry lemonade. I was expecting something worth writing home about but sad to say I didn't have that experience.
