THE RED ZONE… “where there’s plenty of parking”

Jun 28, 2010


RedZone002I recently had the pleasure of stopping by this new happening bar & grill and was really impressed. Here we have two new young up and coming entrepreneur owners Tim Lu, who grew up in the Havertown area and Brian Downey from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. They both had a dream to own and operate a bar just like the one’s in Philadelphia. Just over the Burlington Bristol Bridge on Rt 130 South in New Jersey you will find The Red Zone. It’s a fairly large place with lots of parking and even a cool deck. As I walked in I noticed there were two different bar areas with lots of HD tv’s and many dining rooms. There is also a huge room where the Deejay’s & Bands perform towards the weekends. As I took a walk around I also noticed a nice game room with a few pool tables and lots of video games. They have one of those cool new jukeboxes over by the back bar too. There are plenty of nice spacious wooden booths and tables located in the same area. I was greeted by a friendly bartender/ waitress Dana, where I sat and observed a very loaded menu of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. There was one menu item from their Specialty Sandwich section that caught my eye called “The Prime Rib Dip” which consisted of tender sliced Prime Rib on Ciabata bread. It came with tasty au jus sauce and a tangy horseradish, it was really out of this world! The next item I tried was a bite of their Red Zone Burger which is a colossal sized burger made with cheddar cheese & bacon. Made to order it was simply delicious. The last item I tried was their Red Zone Ribs, wow so scrumptious and a nice portion as well. All of the food at the Red Zone is homemade, even the breading on their chicken fingers! I can honestly say this place is New Jersey’s bestkept secret. The Red Zone has a lot to offer from daily ½ price appetizers to discounted wings & ribs. In season they also offer delicious steamed crab legs Monday through Sunday. That’s right all week long, you cant beat that! They offer nightly entertainment & drink specials. Thursdays & Saturdays they have a Deejay, Thursday night is college night. Friday nights they have local live bands such as Calling All Saints & Please Please me” Every Sunday night they have salsa night where you can strut your stuff to the best Latin music. The Red Zone is open Monday through Sunday from 11pm-2am. They also offer their spacious dining rooms to anyone who may want to plan a banquet, birthday party or any kind of event. They can hold anywhere from 50-300 people! As I spoke to the new owners I made my own suggestions of maybe having car & bike shows too. They seem to like the idea and are definitely giving it some consideration. All in all, I really had a nice time at the Red Zone and would encourage everyone to check this place out. It’s so easy to get to and as I said there’s plenty of parking in their huge paring lots. If you would like to stop by just GPS them at : Red Zone Sports bar & Grill 259 Route 130 South Burlington, NJ 08016
