Expensive but unique

We stopped here on a recent trip to Chautauqua. It is a unique place to eat whether you sit inside at the counter or outside. They will bring your food to your car for you on rollerskates if you like. The food was really good but the prices are too high, we probably would not go back here although... read more

I went with my parents & 2 nephews. It was exceptionally clean, great atmosphere & the food was terrific. Just not sure if it was worth $13 for sandwich & fries or $5 for a milkshake. I also stopped by the next night at 8:50 to grab a milkshake for my parents while I was out & they were closed.... More

Its an old fashioned drive-in burger joint. Great burgers, curly fries, milkshakes. We like to stop in on our way in or out of town. Eat at the U shaped counter or at the picnic tables outside.

For a different lunch stop by this open air drive in playing 50s music with waitresses on roller skates. It was such fun I forgot to notice the food but it must be good. We try to make it a stop every year with the kids!

This is just a neat little classic drive-in near Chautauqua Institution. Food is pretty typical fare and the music, running video, etc. are definitely a throwback. You might even see a waitress on roller skates. The open air seating is terrific on a cool summer evening.

The only thing missing at the Redline are troller skates on the waitresses, but they make up for it with speedy service. A full menu right out of the 50s and 60s with burgers, fries and onion rings at the top of the list. A few salads and other sandwiches dot the menu, but this is ground beef territory so... More

Redline is an old-timey drive-in that does burgers, fries, onion rings and the like very well indeed. The outside tables were full, and we were comfortable at an inside table on this beautiful day. Lots of 50's memorabilia adorned the walls, and one waitress was very smooth on skates. Service was prompt and friendly. We all had burgers, of course,... More

Quite expensive for a burger or sandwich for lunch. Less then a half basket of greasy onion rings for $5.50. One notch up from fast food for double the price.

If you are in the mood for a burger then look no farther. From time to time I want a burger and when you visit the Redline Drive-In you get a "BURGER"! Though at one end the price may seem high in comparison to Wendy's or some other fast food restaurant but what you receive in return is a magnificent... More
