We would go more often if the price were a little less. It's a little pricier than nearby restaurants charge for chicken fried steak, catfish and chicken.
First time there -- we will be back!
It would have been nice to have a selection of vegetables like green beans, broccoli and cauliflower, or something besides fried okra, creamed corn, or mashed potatoes and gravy. Maybe even a baked potato. I'm sorry I seem so negative. We live in Oklahoma City and it was quite a drive to get to their restaurant. We were looking forward to it. The interior is really interesting and I loved the lawn mowers used as ceiling fans. I enjoyed looking at all the decorations. The food was just a disappointment. It's possible that it was just an "off" night and we just arrived there on the wrong day.
We had very good service. The prices were reasonable. I was surprised there was not dessert. We were all stuffed and probably wouldn't have eaten any anyway.
Delicious home style cooking!
Service a little slow... Not much atmosphere
Lots of food but no taste.
The building, design, idea was , but the food was old, little servings of the main course (we both had catfish, maybe 6 little pieces to share and it was more like catfish chips) and the service was slow and rude. I will not bree going back.

Red's strives to make family dining easy. Instead of having menus the size of phone books, Red's keeps the entrees at a manageable seven, just as Hollywood does with acceptable Baldwin jokes. In the wide-open dining area—which is adorned with old Conoco motor-oil ads, old Coke signs, and nostalgic art—diners dig into family-size portions of fried chicken. A mammoth replica of a Red's chicken bucket revolves overhead, representing the eatery's huge portions. As Chef Dave Fouts wrote for the Edmond Sun, "The food arrived and everybody gasped—there was food aplenty and the huge platters filled our entire table, leaving only enough room for our plates and drinks." Hearty sides of fried okra, creamed corn, biscuits, and more complement equally hearty portions of chicken-fried steak, catfish, pot pie, or pot roast.
