“Love, love, love the RO!! Local hangout...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

Love, love, love the RO!! Local hangout. Beat food at affordable prices. Awesome, fast service. Cozy, family-friendly atmosphere. Huge variety on the menu - salads, fruit, steak, fish and of course everything Mexican and yummy! Ask for Jerry at the cool bar in the back - strong Caddie margs! Always busy but well worth the wait. Play Pac-Man to pass the time.

“Food and Service consistently great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2010

Best restaurant in the area. Best Mexican food we've found. Reasonably priced and great atmosphere. Carnitas are the best around. Mexcan combination plates come with great side options. Beans and rice of course but also fruit, mexican zucchini, potatoes, etc. Service is efficient and quick.

“Enjoyable and Reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2009

We visited The Original Red Onion in June for the first time. We thought the restaurant had good values and service was quick and friendly despite being near to capacity.

Each of us enjoyed our meal and I will come back when visiting the area again.

This restaurant is my all time favorite! Portions are large and service is great. Our favs are the fresh chips & salsa, sizzling fajitas, the best chicken tacos and the largest chimichanga I have ever seen!
