I used to call Red's on a Saturday morning to order my crueler and coffee, going in my pjs, jump out with exact change and my order would be waiting on the counter! So good, I'd go in my pjs!

I have been coming to Red's most of my life. Always enjoyed the Coffee and every now and then a Donut. Well lately the Atmosphere of Red's makes me extremely uncomfortable because of the Management and the Customers who now come in. Many are Hispanic...More
