We rediscovered Brett's (twice) on our summer trip to Red River. We had visited many times when it was located right on the edge of town and it was always wonderful. This is a much smaller and intimate place but the food still rocks. We...More

Brett's was full when we arrived so we had a wait. But that happens. The place seemed to empty all at once so when we were seated it was about half full. We waited awhile and eventually 4 glasses arrived. Nothing else. Another 5 minutes...More

Stopped here for lunch yesterday. My husband and I split the green chili cheeseburger - very good. Came with a huge order of fries - more than enough for two. Had a cold beer in a frosty mug. At 2:00 they still had a busy...More

Very good for Red River. Not really expensive when you consider how expensive this town is. All sandwiches are the best! Reuben is best anywhere outside of NY.
