My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. He had never been. We both got burgers. He got a double. We also shared a basket of fries. The burgers were very good. The fries, in my opinion, were just meh. We will definitely be back!

Great place to grab lunch w/ some friends and have a burger. Redamaks is a local landmark, casual dinning, always busy. Food is good, but its just one of those traditions that you have to do every year.

Stay in the area often and kept hearing how great this place is. Stopped in and there is a sign that it is cash only. Since i don't travel with cash i left. Most cash business's cheat on their taxes. Just saying.
