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.

This out of the way diner was recommended to me on a road trip along I-90 through Washington State. It's just off I-90 at exit 106 (about a mile along University Way) and it was well worth the stop for lunch. A diner that is decorated with old-style automotive signs, etc did not feel tacky. Booth, table and counter seating... More

The corned beef hash had an excellent flavor, though a bit pasty. The hash browns were also good. The pork sausage patty had an odd metallic flavor, like low grade turkey can get. The breakfast was OK, but next time I'd probably stick with lunch.

Really loved all the old motor related signs and photos of car events that had taken place there. The service was friendly and the food was pretty good as well, the club sandwich lasted me the rest of the day. Well positioned just off our main route. Glad we made the detour

One of the reasons we drove to Ellensburg. Cool Place inside and out. The Memoriabillia inside is fantastic and the outside has been well created indeed. we had lunch here and it was very good. can recommend a visit here. As we are from Australia it is something special to visit places like this.

This is a MUST SEE and DO on any trip to the Ellensburg area! The decor is SPECTACULAR, and the food (typical diner fare) was super. I would go out of my way to take my famile to eat at this establishment.
