After a day at Six Flags, we decided to stop at the Original Red Onion for dinner. It's a small, neighborhood kind of place but with a large variety of food to choose from. My friend ordered the sautéed spinach,mushroom and garlic burger, her husband the spicy chicken sandwich and I chose the bacon, cheese burger with grilled onions. A small order of fries fed all 3 of us with leftovers. The burgers came to our table so hot, you have to let them cool a bit. They are flavorful, juicy and lip smacking great! The staff are very friendly and attentive. If you're ever near Pinole,Ca. , go to the Red Onion, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Delicious as always.

The Original Red Onion has been a family favorite restaurant for years and it lived up to its normal standards this trip.

The menu has expanded significantly, Asian and Hispanic influences for new dishes. We came for burgers but we're curious about some of the new choices and the owner made us a complimentary plate of the chili verde. (*highly recommend* btw).

Great service, great food, glad we came.

We go to this place about every couple of months. The staff is great but the place could be a little tidier. Burgers and salads are great. This place offerBreakfast as well and a wide variety of menu choices. We don't like the new seating as they've taken out the booths and replaced with bench type seats which are too short. Large food portions and lots of orders to go.

As we walk in the building, we are immediately greeted and told to sit anywhere. Menus are brought to the table almost before we get seated. The fries and onion rings are especially good. Hamburgers are cooked just right.

Ate breakfast here with BF on our way to San Francisco. I had a Denver omelet with hasbrowns and sourdough toast. Can't remember exactly what he had but it included eggs some spicy sausage hashbrowns and toast. Portions are HUGE and this little family run restaurant makes you feel at home. They aren't overly pushy but check on you to refill and make sure you're doing well.
The food is delicious!! Next trip to San Francisco and we are stopping again. Prices are good
