The reviews led me to believe I would have one of the best burgers of the year. In fact, the reviews are 100% spot on! What made this a truly stellar evening was not the burgers though. It was the gracious welcome and great hospitality the entire staff demonstrated. Initially I thought the lack of decour implied little or no... More

I am mystified as to this restaurant's reviews. I saw previous comments and thought that even though the location and restaurant itself is undesirable, maybe they knew how to make a great burger, which I was in the mood for. Wow, what a disappointment. I ordered a Placid Burger (no bacon) with Sweet Potato Fries. The burger meat was tasteless,... More

Not fancy, but great food. Ok it may be too much food on a plate but my daughter and I did a really good job polishing off a redneck burger piled with amer. cheese, brisket, bacon, fried onions, lettuce, tomato and a placid burger with bacon, tomato and lettuce. I used their hickory bbq sauce. Yum!

This was the only place we found in Lake Placid that had good food at decent prices. Most of what you get in Lake Placid is wildly overpriced, and mediocre. The Redneck Bistro has a variety of really good burgers, fried, BBQ, and beer selection. Definitely not fancy, but good value.

this is a fairly new restaurant on the Lake Placid scene and they really work to please. The atmosphere is not conducive to dining, but for eating a hearty, delicious lunch or dinner, this is a good place. The menu is heavy on barbeque and other such heavy/could be more healthy items. My favorite is the mango pango wings. Great... More

The brisket and burgers are excellent. I think the sweet potato fries may be the best I have had. It is hard to find good food at a good price served in a timely manner. This place has successfully accomplished all 3. It also is clean and the staff are very friendly. I am happy to recommend Redneck Bistro to... More

I visited this place after seeing the great reviews on Tripadvisor and it definitely lives up to the hype. It's a simple dine in/take out restaurant so don't expected anything special when it comes to decor. However, the food and service is amazing. You order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. A friend and I... More

Service is weird.. Get your own napkins, plastic ware, and drinks... Good homemade sauces too! Nice people as well. They have a kids menu which is always a plus.
