Red's place is one you must go to. They have the best burgers hands down. They also have wild game burgers for those with a bit of adventure in them. Make sure you eat in the converted school bus. So much fun and GREAT food

The food was nothing too great but the place has a very unique style and charm. It was fun for my 2 year old to eat on a school bus and the signs/decor was amusing.

This place is a couple of converted buses turned into a kitchen and dining room. Very funky and clean. The kitchen bus being the best of the two. The eating bus was okay as well but the table supports could use a redesign. We had...More
