“Good but Too Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

We have been going to the Red Hut in Lake Tahoe for years and thrilled when they opened one in Carson City until they just increased the prices. Breakfast is way too expensive even though the portions are large. Too bad because we won't be going regularly. Cut the portions and the price.

“Yes, everything is out of a can!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Thought we would try this as it was recomended. Vey clean inside,and up beat. Nice old photos on the walls and the decor is first class 50's style. Really cute inside, but the food is another issue. We ordered the chili cheese omlettes and a side of ice tea. They only refilled the ice tea once. The chili on the omlette was CANNED, make no mistake on that. It was just turned over egg, with canned chili and two very small ,thin pieces of cheese on it! The meal comes with toast, but you only get one slice cut in half! I would have rated this lower , but the decor is so nice inside it gets an average. Really not a good deal for the money. They have an ice cream fountain, so maybe come here for that.

“REAL ORDINARY”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

I spoke to the owner at the opening of the "chain" in Carson City; we talked food she told me the the food was "home made" and fresh.What she neglected to say was that it was fresh out of a can or bag.The following day we arrived for breakfast; great, one of the specials was corned beef;I ask the food server-who was good- "was it fresh or our of a can", she did not know. She returned and I was informed it was out of a can.
This newish restaurant is nothing more than an expensive Denny's; One could have gone to a local Casino and gotten the same meal for $2.99, rather tham several dollars more at the The Red Hut. Truly, disappointing.
