Roadrunner Review: Mason Jar on the Main

We stayed in Red Bay at the Downtown RV Park for two nights.  It was our first time doing that, we usually stay at the Tiffin Allegro Campground over by the Service Center.  But our friends Steve and Karen were there so we decided to give it a try.

It worked out well!

A couple hours after we arrived a young lady walked around and passed out flyers to the Mason Jar on the Main Restaurant a couple of blocks away on Main Street.  We tried it out on Tuesday for lunch and were impressed.
 The first thing I noticed was the metal paneling.  Nice.  The clean old original brick wall on one side works well with the metal.  The tables and chairs give it a good look along with the checkerboard tile floor.  Not overdone, a bit trendy and a fun atmosphere.
Owner Sherri was also our order taker and about as friendly as can be.  We opted for Chicken Fingers and the Special of the Day:  Fried Balogna Sandwich.  Pam said the chicken was good and they make their own tasty ranch dressing.  My balogna sandwich with pepper jack cheese and onion rings was a home run.
We had a 1/2 sweet tea and regular tea and a 1/2 tea and 1/2 lemonade which were very good.
 Cool looking chalkboard along one wall.
 Our order arrived in a few minutes and it was worth the wait.  The place started getting busy with a whole mix of folks -- us and some other 'motor home people (as we are known by the locals), some workers from the Tiffin Plant, one of the Tiffin son owners and a couple of his friends, a couple of ladies out for lunch and then a whole bunch of folks making it a busy place.
The food was good and reasonably priced.  The atmosphere was friendly, trendy and clean and the place was decorated well.  It is the perfect spot to grab some good food in downtown Red Bay.  We will be back!

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!

  1. Somehow we missed this place when we toured the Red Bay Tiffin factory during our RV decision-making process! Looks delicious!
