Showed up 15 minutes before the posted closing time and the two employees had locked the door and were almost done cleaning up. They wouldn't acknowledge us or open the door. Turns out our first trip was our last.

Red Onion is famous to old timers who grew up in the bay area in the 60s. For what they offer now it seems they haven't kept up. While I was not happy with the 5 Guys in Pinole, I'd rate it better than the...More
