It’s been on your mind all summer between the beach visits and nightlife fun with friends. The constant struggle on how you can live without it, and what you can do to pass the time until its return. If you are unsure of what I’m referring to, then prepare yourself— for football season is about to make its return to a sports bar near you! Just a few things to check off your list: have you joined a fantasy football league, bought your team colors, and finally found the perfect place to watch every game day? Lucky for you, NJ has plenty of sports bars to keep you occupied and happy, but any
true football fan knows that game day isn’t complete without friends, good food, and plenty of drink specials to make the day sweeter. Have you picked your game day destination? If you haven’t, I highly recommend you take a trip to Redd’s Restaurant and Biergarten in Carlstadt. Let’s check it out!
The commute to Redd’s is fairly simple if you drive, but please for your sanity, don’t try and take public transportation there—especially on game day! It’s a hot mess in the making, trust me on this one. If you are driving there, do yourself a favor and plan a little ahead to avoid traffic, or just call Uber. Either way, I promise you the commute is worth it, and it is very easy to find being located less than a mile from MetLife Stadium. According to some word of mouth sources, this is the destination to be at before and after all your football games, concerts, etc. Another bonus? If you are driving
there Redd’s offers convenient parking options, as well as shuttles to and from events. Check out their website for more information!
Upon arriving to Redd’s you’ll instantly be welcome by their beautiful outdoor seating. Gentlemen or ladies, if you are looking to make a good impression for that special person in your life who enjoys sports and dining, this is the place to go. I had the opportunity to check out the patio, and there is ample space to enjoy what’s left of the summer weather, all while enjoying a good meal and ambience with friends. Looking for a place to hold an event? You can reserve Redd’s for any business, family, or sports get together you can think of. They have a sizable event floor, a balcony which displays a beautiful view of the Meadowlands Stadium, a liquor license and catering options, private outdoor patio, on-site parking, and more! Call for more information.
Hey football fans, did you know that there are over 35 flat screens available? This means you won’t be stuck in a corner trying to find space at the bar to view your game of choice. Redd’s has you covered inside. They provide a sports friendly environment, friendly staff, and more than enough room for you to have a good meal while watching some touchdowns. This August, get ready for NFL and college specials on Wings, Pork Rib Sliders, Cheeseburger Sliders, Bavarian Pretzels, Pizza, and Nachos. Yum! Don’t forget about promotions for Coors Lite, Miller Lite, Yuengling, Shock Top, and even on Radeberger, Heineken, Schofferhofer Grapefruit, Strongbow Cider, and House Wine. Check out their website or socials to stay up-to-date on all upcoming football specials. Now let’s talk about food and drinks.
The menu at Redd’s can best be described as eclectic providing its patrons with a variety of options to choose from. You can start with an appetizer such as the Bavarian Pretzel or Redd’s Nachos “Supreme,” opt for one of the certified 10 oz. Angus Burgers, Pizza, Sandwiches, Soups, Salads, Pasta, or…and wait for it, select one of the sausages. On my visit, I decided to try both the Vegan Sausage and Cheddar Sausage, as well as the Radeberger Pilsner, and Hofbrau Original draught beers. If you are a Vegan, Redd’s definitely has you covered. The dish wasn’t greasy, fresh to order, and the perfect dish to allow you the “sausage” experience without the guilt. The Cheddar Sausage was delicious as well, and if you are cheese fan, I highly
recommend you give this a try. It comes with fries, rye bread, and plenty of kraut. Overall, a touchdown food experience that can be enjoyed by all.
The beer paired very well with the food, and they have a little something for everyone. I personally loved the Hofbrau Original. It’s flavor was balanced, and offered a hint of flavor that would turn even the most avid of cocktail lovers to a beer drinker just for one night. Looking for a more robust flavor? Then you should opt for the other house favorite, the Radeberger Pilsner. This option is refreshing and bold…so take a chance,
and give them a try. You won’t be disappointed! Now we’ve talked about dinner, drinks, but what about dessert? Surely there is something that I can end the night with. Don’t worry sugar fans, Redd’s has you covered with items ranging from ice cream to Warm Brownie a La Mode. My recommendation? Try the Tootsie Roll! No not the candy, but a marble cheesecake which is rolled in a cinnamon crust, and topped with both raspberry and chocolate sauce. Believe me, your game day won’t be complete without it!
Overall Redd’s is your complete sports/private event space destination. It’s a gem for beer and food lovers alike, and with its combination of awesome football specials, outdoor seating, parking/shuttle options, and plenty of big screens available, it is the place to be this football season. Thanks for having me, Redd’s Restaurant and Biergarten —and cheers and happy eating to you all!
