    Service for a party was EXTREMELY lame!! No drinks, and food order waiter took entirely too late! I mean no drinks and no food 😣 I don't recommend this place for a party at all.

    I've got to say that the service here at Red's has consistently been great and there are so few places in Austin that I'm willing to make the same remark.

    The food was bland. I'm a country girl and this food is not what I grew up on. It looked nice but the taste was just bad. Good mimosas!

    Ask for a side of the wing hot sauce to mix with your salsa to make the perfect custom salsa.
