We eat lunch at Red's every trip to Dollywood! So good! The milkshakes are great and you get a decent portion of fries with your burger. I appreciate that there is a self-service bar to fix your burger to your liking. Plenty of seating indoors and outdoors. They recently renovated and the improvements look great!

Good place for a burger and fries. A little overpriced but you're in a theme park and money just flies out of your pocket anyway!

No joke. The pickles on the condiment bar are the best smooth sliced pickles ever. I want to talk to Mr. Pickle himself and shake his hand. But there is also a great dining spot serving his pickles. Red's is my family's choice at Dollywood. Prices are reasonable for theme park food. $9.99 for a cheeseburger and fries isn't bad... More

Fast food for sure, a little pricey. They do have a bar with condiments to dress your burger. They have chicken sandwiches and milkshakes.

We stopped at Red's for a mid-afternoon snack while in Dollywood. I got a vanilla milkshake complete with whip cream and cherry on top, with an order of curly fries. YUMMY! I love the atmosphere here....it feels just like you've stepped back into the 50's. Fun for the whole family!

This is our place of choice at Dollywood. Chargrilled burgers, great fries and classic milkshakes! They also have 100's of selections in the fountain drink. We like to sit outside where you can still hear the 50's music. Plan for a late lunch so the lines arent too long.

This place has good diner food and a great atmosphere, but it is kind of expensive. I would rather it at Ms. Lillian's or the Ham and Beans place in Dollywood!

This restaurant in Dollywood is a recreation of a 50's diner, complete with the Gem Tones singing group. The prices are reasonable and the plate of food is always more than we can eat. And good....just simple and good.

Good is barley average. I've had better at Mickey D's. It should be a crime to charge so much for stinky food from a captive audience.

We found Red's to be your run of the mill hamburger stop with cold food and a dirty interior. Very limited offerings on the menu.
