In early March we visited Red’s True Barbecue with a group of friends. For Keith and I it was our second time in quite a few years since it had opened. We went on a Saturday which as you can imagine required quite a long waiting time as its quite a popular and busy place but for some reason did not allow us to reserve a table. However luckily they have a system in place that allows customers to go away for a while and get a notification when their table is ready.
The first time we visited Red’s the service wasn’t great and the food was only sub-par.
This time however I’m glad to report its improved since our first visit all that time ago.
Keith and I both ordered burgers as did the rest of our party. He had the Donut Burger whereas I had a single Classic Bacon Cheeseburger. The others had the Juicy Lucifer.
Service was prompt and polite. The burgers and fries were delicious and have definitely improved since our last visit! I’m told that the donuts instead of buns was a strange but interesting twist to a burger. It works though strangely enough!
Overall I’ve got no complaints about Red’s. There are other restaurants that do similar things so its never really my first choice of a dinner venue. However it’ll do if you ever wanted a meal purely meat based. So I’m rating this 3 simply because it doesn’t really stand out as a restaurant I MUST go to.
