We were in Glencoe on Labor Day, and most establishments were closed. We decided to try the Red Hen. The people working in there definitely had major attitudes! Our group thought the pizza was good, salad..mediocre, and service, NOT with a smile . 😡

The French Fries are amazing and so are the fresh bakery treats everyday (for example snores cookies😍😍) and the hot dogs are very good but my friend got the pizza and she had to dab off overflowing grease so that grossed me out a little.

Good food, but very overpriced. Owner Jimmy is a little rude. Ice cream is soft serve, and very good but also expensive! $3 a cone? No thanks!

A nice little non chain fast food joint in Glencoe town, with the usual fare. The chicken is not bad. Jimmy, the owner, is well known in town, especially with his attitude which can put some people off. Overpriced pizza slices are popular after school with the pre-teens from Central School. They also supply overpriced food at the Glencoe Beach... More

The daughter of the owner used foul language in front of a father young children. When I asked her to stop she told me it was her business and she couldbonwhatever she wanted in her own place. I was appalled. The food is just ok-- nothing special. I don't understand how people will do business with people who don't seem... More
