A local watering hole and more. First place the locals recommend and later you see them there. Great Service and great quality food. Thanks for having us in!

We ate breakfast on a Monday morning before heading home. The pancakes are amazing! Probably the best I've ever had! And the bacon, yummy! Great job! Sad they didn't have donuts that day but just gives me one more reason to come back!

It won’t let me give zero stars. I’ve never written a review before, but found it necessary after my experience today. My family and I were in town for vacation, from Albuquerque, and chose this restaurant, as there are not many options in Red River....More

The person waiting on me got my order all wrong. She was older and I don’t think she could hear well. The food was ok but nothing fancy. Just A Diner Make sure they hear you when you order.
