The lack of total hygienic practices in this place makes me want to run, not walk, to my doctor's office for shots for every communicable disease out there. Cons: Nasty, nasty...

Great cheap dive restaurant 3/24/2009

Just a down right good freaking deal for a cheap place to eat after a cray work-out. If you're into bloddy marys, the back bar has a spicy kick-butt version of this. Pros: Food & View Cons: No Service - but that's the fun more

If you have to try it, stay outside! 2/26/2007

Excellent location and View! Too Bad the service is rude and slow. Not to mention the restroom is one of the Pros: Low Prices Cons: Filthy premises. more

A San Francisco Landmark 11/20/2006

I think this place still deserves it's status as a must see SF landmark. It's really popular with the lunch crowd. There's a picture on the wall showing that Red's was there while the Bay Bridge was originally being built. I used to come here with my kids for lunch while they were in kindergarten, and now they are in their twenties. I went there when Red was still working, albeit getting on in age. So , yeah, it's not the same without him. And Back then I fed the family for about 5 bucks. So, yeah, it's more expensive now... so is SF real estate. But it's still a value. Get the burgers, the sandwiches, combination meals with fries and a drink. Remember you can substitute soft drinks for the beer if you're not into alcohol. You can get chips instead of fries, and the fish and chips can be had for a change. And in the old days I just sat on the edge of the pier and threw my excess bread to the pigeons and gulls, but now you can sit on the patio and watch all the chinese ships arrive in SF Bay full and leave empty. Pros: Enjoy the history and the view and it's fast Cons: OK, the food is not gormet, you get what you pay for more

i love reds 5/20/2006

no frills for sure. Lots of outside seating on some of those great sunny afternoons. THe fish & chips is real tasty! Burgers are good. Everything is inexpensive, and they make great bloody marys! Pros: cheap, tasty, good drinks Cons: pidgeons! more

No Hassle Lunch 11/4/2005

A lot of guys line up for burgers and dogs because this place is pretty much a no hassle lunch spot. I wouldn't say it's super cheap and the burgers are not the best in town, but I like going because it's simple, it's quick, and it's consistent. A bowl of chili goes well with a burger. The fish and chips are also tasty. Get there well before the lunch rush on sunny days to grab a table on the back patio. There are more days without Giants games than with throughout the year, so just go when there is less of a crowd. Pros: outdoor patio, no hassle, kinda cheap Cons: average food, long lines more

Great SF Landmark Starting Fade... 8/15/2005

This used to be one of my favorite spots before the Giant's moved into the area. The arrival of the Giant's have definitley made the owners rich but, the place has lost a lot of its charm. It used to be a great place to steal away to at lunch and grab a decent meal for very little cash. The place has tradition and history that is unfortunately starting to fade. What's up with the patio and flat panel TV? It has become less of a SF landmark and more of just a pre-game drinking hangout. Pros: Cheap Eats, Tradition Cons: Game Days, Crowds more

What could be better... 8/5/2002

A nice sunny day, outside, having a burger and a drink right on the bay. Magnificent views of the bridge and east bay. Pros: inexpensive, good parking, incredible view Cons: average food more
