racist – I'm Hispanic but I don't speak Spanish & I love country music. I went dressed cowgirl & all having a good time. The group I went with we were the only group of Hispanics there & from the moment we got to the door to the moment we got kicked out the dumb cops picked on every one of us they made sure to check every ounce of our background & yell at us for no reason. & this security lady came up to me being sarcastic & I played along with her & she told the cops I yelled at her so we got removed. Aside from that the place was real fun.
damn good dance hall and bar – damn good bar! great ppl kinda strict on some stuff but dont do anything stupid and its a blast
Love this place, but I dislike one of their waitresses! – I have been going to Red River for the past 3 years...My friends and I all celebrate our birthdays here every year. They have a great mix of music and super cheap drinks! I have never had a problem with the staff until recently. The waitresses and bartenders have always been sweethearts except for one. This past Saturday I celebrated My BFF's B-Day and we spent about $200 on shots and beer and gave this one waitress great tips even though she was a total RUDE ASS! She had an attitude the whole time and we had to call her over to us instead of her asking if we needed anything. When ordering our 5th round of budwisers, she said that they weren't anymore and we asked her well what kind of bar runs out of a certain kind of beer? She just rolled her eyes and said we just dont have any...so order something else! So we order budlight. After that we started ordering from this other waitress who was so nice and when we asked her about budwiser...she said that they still had some and wasnt sure why the other chic said there werent any. So one of our friends went over to the rude waitress and put his arm around her shoulders and asked for budwiser again and she got pissed and had him escorted out for puting his arm around her. WTF! My friend had put his arm around the nice waitress and she didn't seem to have a problem with it. This rude ass gal was just looking for a reason to kick one of us out! So please do not order from this chic if you happen to go to Red River...She is the only waitress i have ever had a problem with. I dont know her name but i do know she has shoulder length hair with blonde highlights and has tattoos above each of her boobs and she is a total biotch! She mostly works around the pool tables that are in the back, upstairs to the right.
to those of you with negative opinions... – Reminder: for the NEGATIVE only...Okay, here's the REAL skinny... you want to know why the waitresses and bartenders are so rude to you? Because either you left your measly 50 cents, or you didnt tip at all... would you work for free? (provided you even HAVE a job) No? I didnt think so. So why should the bartenders and waitresses? They make $2.13 an hour. Thats 2-3 nights a week, 6 hours a night... do you think getting paid $40 every 2 weeks is going to pay the bills? Not to mention they have to pay taxes on the beer or liquor you drink. If you cant afford to throw a dollar in the tip jar then buy a 6 pack and stay your ass at home! Yes, I agree, the cops and management can be rude, but you have to understand there is a reason for that... your drunk ass did something to piss them off. You dont realize what an idiot you look like when ur wasted and hanging on the bar or any guy/girl you lay eyes on to keep yourself upright... you are wasting the clubs time... those guys dont get out of there till 5 AM and you are just prolonging their departure. And you act like Red River is the only place that you could get your stuff stolen from... Dumbass... if you left your camera at Jack in the Box, it would get stolen... walmart... stolen... its not the establishment, unfortunately this world is littered with thieves with no conscience... so take that sh*t somewhere else. I could keep going and going about you losers, but i DO have a life I have to get back to.. kinda feel like this was 5 minutes of my life wasted... but if I knocked ANY sense into you jugheads, it was worth losing 5 minutes.... have a good day!
WTF – I WAS THERE THIS PAST SATURDAY...WASNT THAT BUSY, BUT WAS FUN. THE NEXT DAY WHEN I CHECKED MY STATEMENT ONLINE IT SHOWED I WAS CHARGED 50.00 FORA 9 DOLLAR TAB. THAT IS NOT A BANK HOLD.... THAT IS WHEN YOU CLOSE THE BATCH DOWN THE NUMBERS ARE NOT BEING ENTERED RIGHT! THANK GOD I HAVE 2 DIFFERENT BANK ACCOUNTSBECAUSE WITH THIS 50.00 CHARGE ON HERE IM NOW NEGATIVE FOR THIS ACCOUNT AND CANT USE MY CARD...HOW ANNOYING!
Employee Scoop from someone that works there – *First of all I want to start by saying if it is such a bad place as it has been put on here how come it has made it 27 years and still standing! Hmmm? *
If you do something wrong and you are guilty you will be thrown put unless you have warrants or you harrass the officers then you will be arrested and put in jail!. DUH!!!
*If you have an excessive charge on your bank card honey it is YOUR BANK that does that it's called a credit hold. It has nothing to do with us it will be returned to your account in 3-5 business days
* Music is never replayed...
*Service is always good
*If you have nothing better to do than bitch what a bad place it is it's prob because you were kicked out or fired and now your panties are all in a twist. Do us all a favour unwedge them and get over it!
Thank you have a great day!
horrible!!!!! – I'm from huntsville (a hicktown) n we have one good bar n they rejects from there go to the bad one n the rejects from there go to red river okay i wasn't impressed at all. they replayed songs all night. it was ridicilous!!!!!!!!!!!
OVER CHARGED and MAD – I was charged 60 dollars on my debit card, and had two drinks.. WT F. I called my girfriend and she said they did the same thing to her. Is this standard?? I am so mad right now. I have no idea of thier operation hours, but guartee if they dont fix Channel 2 news will be showing up over there!
This sums it up – I've been going there (not so much lately) for over 8 years. Whether or not you like this place, you cannot say it's the best COUNTRY bar. When the play Hip Hop almost 50% of the time and baseball caps outnumber cowboy hats 10-1, you cannot say it's the best country bar. They need a stricter dress code or "no doosh bags" policy, it's a shame when you have to be told how to dress in a club. Such as caps not worn straight, flip flops, visors, and sunglasses on your head when you're inside and it's been dark for 5 hours. The music they play is crap, even alot of the country songs. But the drinks are cheap and most of these other reviews are right on about the cops and the owner's being rude. They will always side with the girl, as far as racist, I don't know. I think they don't want thugs in there but with the music they play, it doesn't help.
UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT! – Most of the complaints here were valid... Fortunately, the bar is under new ownership and management. A lot of the old staff quit when the management changed, and it was probably the best thing that happened to that place in years. The new owners are putting in money and effort to make it a great place to be. Give it another chance! You may be quite pleasantly surprised!
