I was in Miami for a Marlins game and found this place on TA. Several reviews said the barbecue was good and I always look for good barbecue. But...this was not it. The place is a decent size inside. You seat yourself and then the waitress will come take your drink order. My waitress was very nice and attentive. I... More

I live close by and my schedule is upside down. They open at 7 and close at 10. I can always get something good at a reasonable price. That is a feat in this tourist city. So stop on in and be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

I decided to pig out on Red's Mix Grill (for breakfast!!) 2 eggs, bacon, pork chop, sausage, biscuit with gravy and home fries and all for $8.69. I managed to eat... More

If you are in the area and you enjoy local bar b que, this is the place for you. Lil Reds is not fancy, but clean and has great food. The ribs are delicious and you get two sides with any entree. They have about 8 or 10 sides, so there is something for everyone. Don't like ribs? No problem,... More

Neighborhood restaurant. Reasonable prices. Not much ambiance. Not much of a view. Very downscale. You come here to eat, period. For breakfast I got two eggs over easy with corned beef hash, home fries and a biscuit. The food was very good. The eggs were done perfectly. The potatoes had pieces of grilled onion in them, a nice touch. The... More

We were spending a pre-cruise night at a nearby motel that recommended Lil Reds for BBQ. We were tired from a long day of driving and were just looking for something quick and easy to get to and then back for some sleep. Lil Reds was a wonderful surprise.

We were in town before a cruise. We had to pick up some things in a grocery store, so asked there if they could recommend a good place for breakfast. A man in line called out "Lil Reds, best place in town!" We're very glad we took his advice. We could see when we got there that it's very popular,... More
