“All for American Icons but, you must deliver!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I like the fact that we have traditional American places like this to keep the American tradition of a time that will never come back. However, the menu needs a inside make over, to work on the ingredients and the flavor. Execution of the burgers and dogs also need some re-engineering. In one word sloppy.
MAKE IT WORTH IT FOR US TO COME BACK AND GET YOUR FLAVORS RIGHT!

“Excellent Food and Smoothies!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I loved the food there! It was very good! The smoothies were also excellent! I like the strawberry the best, but I'm a strawberry person! The only down side is that there is not much space inside and when it is packed, there is not much room to sit! Overall, this is a good place to eat- if it's not to busy!

“Disappointing Burger”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

My husband and I stopped by Red Knapps for a burger and shake - shake was fine - but the burger was just so tasteless - the bun was awful and not toasted- waste of money - won't be back.

“Malts!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Best chocolate malts in the area - better than Ray's! Can take or leave the rest of the menu. Though many seem to enjoy the fare. As for me, the malt is king!

“One Visit”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

I've only been there once -- it was crowded so apparently lots of people like the place. The burger was really good. My dining buddy ordered the fried pickles and loved them. I'd go again but wouldn't make a special trip into Rochester to do it.
