The Red Onion had a varied menu, but we chose burgers. I had a salad with mine, which was fresh and good. Husband had fries which were great. Nice ambiance and reasonable prices.

We attended a large family dinner at the Red Onion. The restaurant handled the group very well. Fantastic comfort food and good service. The "sliders" and tacos where a hit.
