Red’s Southern Diner, Edmond, OK

Red's Southern Diner on Urbanspoon

I saw that Red’s was ranked #1 in the OKC area on Urbanspoon, and anything that’s a Diner I like, so we headed over there last Tuesday evening. We got there around 1745 and left about an hour later. Red’s was about 20% full when we got there, and getting full when we left.

The meal is served sorta family style. Everyone orders, it’s all piled on a platter, and the platter and sides are plunked down for everyone to dig into. Our sides were mashers (pretty good) and gravy (wow, excellent!) and creamed corn (excellent also).

Our main courses:

Fried chicken: Excellent. Four pieces that didn’t last long. Not greasy, great flavor, a wonderful crunchy skin.

BBQ chicken: Excellent! A quarter chicken, perfectly seasoned and baked with BBQ sauce, tender and delicious.

Fried catfish: Excellent. Corn meal breaded, perfectly fried, and flaky catfish. I am not a big fish eater, but I liked that catfish.

Chicken fried steak: OK. A huge cut of cutlet, clearly hand breaded and fried up on site. It had good flavor, but was tough and hard to cut into and chew.

The meal was $11 per person, drinks were extra. The tea was excellent. Service was pretty good; we ran out of drinks a couple times. Our check was around $50 (can’t find the receipt for now). It was a pretty huge amount of food. The only stuff we left was a bit of mashers and about 1/3 of the CFS. The rest was devoured. Red’s is pretty darn good, I’d go back any time.
