Red Deer Eats

I found my hit list of Calgary eateries quite useful to look back on for reference purposes, so on a weekend where a food stop in Red Deer may be on the agenda, I was hoping Chowhound would be able to help me generate options beyond the glut of Gasoline Alley and epidemic of chains. It delivered.

  • Redstone Grill: with a menu similar in price point to Madison’s Grill, it may be too expensive for our fuelling intention, but it’s a definite option worthy of consideration in the future.
  • Glenn’s: apparently has good comfort food and pie.
  • Rusty Pelican: the name is admittedly growing on me. The reviews on Chowhound are mixed, but with entrees priced under $20 (a filet mignon for $18.95), it would be worth a try.
  • It’s All Greek to Me: no relation to the Edmonton restaurant with the same name.
  • Las Palmeras: a restaurant which one poster claims serves the most authentic Mexican food in the province, the lack of a website prevents further comment, but this would be my pick for the weekend.

  1. Hi, I’ve been following your sites for a while now (got the link from Shermie). ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyways.. I haven’t had any luck with The Rusty Pelican. The food always come out cold and bland :(. Las Palmeras is pretty good but I would not call it the best Mexican food in the province (I personally prefer the Magpie and Stump restaurant in Banff). I haven’t been back since they’ve done the renovation recently. I highly recommend the Redstone Grill. They were reasonably cheap for what it has to offer. Another restaurant I like is Restaurant Twenty Seven (more upscale establishment like the Redstone so it’s a bit pricey) and the Ranch House (reasonably priced). There’s also the Toad ‘n’ Turtle Restaurant that has decent pub food.

    Good luck! I’m looking forward to read your reviews ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks for your suggestions! I think most times through Red Deer I’ve just stopped at Tim Horton’s, so I appreciate any guidance on good places to eat.

  3. Can anyone suggest where one can go to eat in Red Deer when they are lactose intolerant? ? In addition just looking for some place that values quality service and quality food. More and more dismayed, disappointed and disgusted.
