Really fantastic burgers, old school feel, especially since it's cash only, be prepared. Typical menu selection for a burger joint and all is good. Be aware they are seasonal and close for the winter.

Love the velveta cheeseburgers! Fried cauliflower is delicious as well. Get there early so you don't have to wait in line! Try to get seated in the room to the right when you walk in, the other room is very loud.

A group of 12 of us were visiting northeast Indiana. We decided to meet at Redamak's for lunch. We visited on the last weekend of their season. Even though we arrived at 2:00 p.m. MI time, we still had to wait about 30 minutes for tables. The restaurant is a extremely popular place that has been in business for decades.... More

As three siblings growing up in northern Indiana, we were introduced to Redamak's at an early age. I have lived abroad for 46 years and come to Indiana every year to visit my family. I never miss a trip to Redamak's. It has scarcely changed in all those years. I can never choose between a cheeseburger or a sloppy joe... More

This restaurant is known for their hamburgers. Wide variety to choose from cheese to triple decker. They also have a wide variety of food at reasonable price. It is handicap accessible and easy to get to off the Main Street in New Buffalo. Wait staff are friendly and very helpful.

We ate here with our children and we all had a great time. The decor makes you feel like you're stepping back in time. It's a fun atmosphere. We ordered burgers with Velvetta cheese that were delicious. The only drawback was that I realized after the server left she hadn't asked us how we'd like our burgers cooked. I prefer... More

Since Redamak's closes soon for the winter - re-opens March 1, 2017 - we made one last visit today. Love the burgers and free fries during the workingman's lunch period. Busy place even after 1:30pm today and that can make for a lot of noise. If you're looking for a quiet, elegant dining place, look elsewhere. Two in our party... More

Heard all about this place as having the best burgers. We were in the area and stopped in for the burgers. Ordered the original cheeseburger and took a bite. I thought they forget the burger as it was hidden under everything. Just an okay burger, once I found it. We came, we ate, we will not be back.
