The fried chicken here is to die for. I am a fried chicken freak and this place has it. I went today and ordered the 4 piece brown meat. It was Fantastic. Had the noodles with the sauce which was out of this world. Delicious salad too. Great place for 15.00.

A guy I work with kept on suggesting I try Rep Top's chicken for more than 3 months now! Finally got the chance to visit last July 9, ordered the Chicken Dinner (2 orders) to go, drove home, placed the food on my table, opened the container, got a piece of the chicken and found myself eating dinner and not...

A visit to the Red Top has been on my list, after seeing it on "Your Got To Eat Here" on the Food Network. My wife and I were in Winnipeg for a conference and we stopped on our first day. I had the fried chicken dinner, it was awesome. I up-graded my salad option to a Greek salad -... More

This is a great little spot to go and have a great meal while making memories! Take me back to a simple time of sharing and enjoying each other's company. The atmosphere is great; the food amazing - staff out of this world. Thanks for the great night! We love that you stay humble and kind!

The Red Top Diner has been a Winnipeg Institution for several decades.... Large portions of home made food such as ...hot dogs, hamburgers, salads and fries continue to attract people from everywhere.... All day breakfast is a nice treat as well !! ..... Oh so good !!

Had lunch today with my employee. He had 3 piece chicken dinner and received a huge breast, drumstick and wing. I had a 2 piece and I got a lousy meatless wing and a tiny thigh. For $16.00 I basically had fries, toast and coleslaw. Very unsatisfying lunch. Next time KFC.

Was looking forward to trying this after many positive reviews. I love diners but found Red Top to be nothing but average. Service was really really slow - nothing got moving until the manager (I think) moved off the till and started helping. People (regulars?) were bussing and setting their own tables. Chicken was good, but lack of coffee refills... More

We went to Red Top for a delicious fast meal. My husband had a burger. My daughter and I had hotdogs. And we all enjoyed the delicious fries. The meal was well priced, fast, tasty and homey. We definitely recommend this Winnipeg institution!

The food is good and the potions are very generous. I loved the coleslaw they have and the amount they give you is substantial. A good place to try once in you life.
