I feel like only in East Texas or somewhere in the South would you have a restaurant named Redneck Bar and Grill. The restaurant’s reputation lives up to its name and serves steak, chicken or fish smothered in a gravy or grilled.
Redneck is a great downtown dining experience if you are looking for large portions that will fill you up and make your taste buds water in anticipation of what to expect in your dining experience. We often ask our guests who stay with us at The Oaks, what they want for dinner and direct them to the right options. Never has anyone come away from Redneck disappointed.
In our last visit into Redneck, we both ordered a salad with steak or tuna as our protein option. Maybe not the best option, for dining at Redneck but both meats were cooked to order and met our expectations. I would have liked the addition of a mixed lettuce selection rather than only iceberg, for a good quality salad.
All the other offerings are just what people would expect. Top Sirloin cooked to your desired finish, smothered hamburger steak, or grilled chicken. Daily specials are served anytime a patron desires that option. For example one guest ordered a Risky Chicken, which is a grilled chicken covered in sautéed mushrooms, onions and swiss cheese. A definite pleasure for the taste buds.
Redneck also offers a variety of bar drinks, for their patrons to enjoy. There is a good selection of beer and wine options as well for those who don’t want to mix it up. Since portions are so large they only offer plain cheese cake for dessert. However, they encourage patrons who want something a little sweet, to walk around the corner to another local option, the Magic Scoop.
If you are in need of a space for a larger group event, Redneck has a semi private room available for those functions to utilize as well. Call ahead and make sure it’s available for your special occasion. Be sure to stop in for lunch or dinner the next time you are downtown.
