“Great Rootbeer Stand!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Red's has an awesome atmosphere. Picnic tables and a drive thru are available if you don't want to eat in your car.

The food is delicious, as is the Rootbeer. We ordered from our car and then decided to take the kids to a picnic table. They were offered chalk to draw on the pavement while waiting, which they loved. The owner came by and made sure he high-fived each kid. The wait staff is very attentive and make you feel welcomed.

If you are looking for a quick and easy meal, you won't find better service or atmosphere anywhere. Red's is a great, fun place to bring your family.

Excellent service, good food... chili dogs were very good and onion rings were awesome! Red himself came out and shook hands and gave us the run down on the place. Great place! Love the small town, family feel!!!

“A taste of Chicago in Michigan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

As fans of Chicago's Superdawg, we saw this place and had to try it. Red brags that his Chicago style dog is the equal of Portillo's - and he's not wrong ... they even have the neon relish. Everything we had was delicious: chili dog, onion rings, root beer, and fried pickle spears. We'd definitely go there again!
