We stopped here for lunch and immediately were in love the building and the memorabilia. We both ordered burgers and fires. Food came to the order window and sat for several minutes while the three wait staff were discussing something of "utter" importance. More important than the customer for sure! Apparently one of them had an order to delivers and... More

We almost always stop at the Red Horse when we're in the area. We've been there for breakfast and dinner and have never been disappointed in the food or the service. You can't go wrong. Great gas station and automotive memorabilia from a by-gone era. Will continue to patronize this place.

Wife and I had dinner here tonight while staying in town. We were the only people in the place and everyone working was super nice and friendly. If you love cars and old signs, you will love this establishment.

Do yourself a favor and skip all the standard big chain, fast food places right at the interstate exit and head over to enjoy the plentiful personality of the Red Horse. The decor is well done with plenty of automotive history. Even the names of the various menu items pay homage to motor heads. And you really can't go wrong... More

We enjoyed our lunch and the raspberry milkshake was excellent. The place was roomy and clean, although air conditioner wasn't working in larger half. I had been there before with a large crowd and it was great, portions were large.. We will return. We used to Blue Grouse before it closed, this is a better choice, place made from an... More

Fun place to eat! Lots of great memorablia to look at and the menu is so funny to read. Someone had a great sense of humor who named the items. We took our three grown children with us here and they all enjoyed the atmosphere too. The booths are large and roomy so we could all spread out, the waiter... More

I was not overly impressed with the food. I would have been better off eating at McDonalds. The atmosphere and decor is unique. The food not so. A hamburger on a hoagie roll? I just ordered a cheeseburger with avocado. Would not recommend this place.

Want a great meal in Ellensburg? Stop at the Red horse. Always good food and friendly staff in a great classic environment. They are always updating and adding more and more memorabilia to feast your eyes on.

Cute diner with a lot of memorabilia. Went for lunch, the place was recommended the first time I was in town here. Finally had the chance to make it over. Staff was friendly. Food was good. It was what I expected from a place like this. Nothing fancy, burgers and sandwiches. Large menu with many different choices.
