We've always had great breakfasts here. Today we tried lunch and the burgers were great. They were just like the old fashioned burgers you used to get many decades ago (more decades than I care to mention ;-). We will definitely return for breakfasts and lunches in the future.

For motorists traveling along Interstate 90 between Spokane and Seattle there is no shortage of breakfast restaurants close to the Interstate, but it is worth taking a few extra minutes and diverting off at Junction 106 and driving towards the old town of Ellensburg. Within a mile of I90, the Red Horse Drive-In is situated on the right hand side... More

Went here for our 'once-a-week eat out.' Very interesting decor of old signs and things from the 50's or so. Service was good and the food too. A fine burger place but not the evening out with your wife place. Would take the family there for a good, quick meal at a good price.

Breakfeast is the best in town. Real egg wash omelets and real bacon, cooked correctly. As a former line cook, this is a great place. Plus its next to the weed store if that is your thing. Great staff and quick.

We stopped in at the Red Horse on our way to Roslyn WA for a little daytrip. My husband and I both got the Dead Man's Curve while my son got the Trooper. While I can't speak for my son's burger, which looked awesome, my husband and I loved our burgers. The burgers came with the regular accouterments and steak... More

Note that in the summer it is always crowded,but the wait staff is very good at getting people in and out.It's always super clean.There's a huge variety of... More

A wild collection of gas station memorabilia adorns this restaurant and the selection of burgers and combinations is extensive. The food is very good and your head will never stop swiveling

This place has a lot of fun gas station memorabilia. Everywhere you look, there is something interesting to see. The atmosphere is fun & they play great music from the 70's. Their burgers are fantastic. Make sure you go with a big appetite!

Loved this place. Real food with great service. In and out without feeling rushed. Waitress was spot on and so was the food. Had a sausage sandwich and husand ordered biscusits and gravy with a side of sausage and it was like gramda made em in the back. All food came out hot and fresh
