On the edge of Rock Creek. Best buffalo burger to be found anywhere. Ice cream is nice after a day of hiking. Sit out on porch and listen to creek.

We ate at the Red Box Car twice during our 4 day stay in Red Lodge. It was well recommended for having good burgers, shakes and smoothies at a good price and it was worth going back a second time. The decks where you can eat offer a great view of the river and the the staff were very friendly.

We stopped for lunch after a long morning of driving. I love this type of place. It's not a chain and has many options on the menu. It was busy and we had to wait a bit for our order, but we enjoyed the beautiful view from the deck while we waited.

Ended up here because the two other places were tried were closed on a Monday night. Saw the long line and figured it had to be good. The wait to order was not too long but the wait for the food was very long and the worst part of it was that when I was called to the window, I... More

We have been going to Red Lodge for a few years now and always see a line at this place. This year we were on our way fishing and decided to give it a try. The girl who took our order on Saturday July 23rd around 5pm was friendly an efficient. The food came out in a timely manner and... More
