Very enjoyable

Counter order, then be seated and they bring it to you. VERY helpful young lady at the ordering counter. Varied menu, lots of items, but not overwhelming. Promptly served. All was very tasty, and our family group ate well, on the porch on a pleasant day. Not a five due to having to go back in... read more

Did not like the food and did not like the ordering method. This place has no servers and you have to go to the counter and order your food. This is like a local Chipotle (which I also do not like it) but obviously better. The food is not bad but it is not something you would want to go... More

My husband and I shared the shrimp fajitas. They were delicious and lots of food. The fajitas come with a large side salad and all the trimmings with the fajitas. We had so much food, we had to take some home. Good food, lots of it, and great prices! Doesn't get much better.

We had a group event in their private room, and I think the night went very well. The bartender was really nice and did a good job. The food was good (we ate buffet-style, not off the menu). The atmosphere, as always, was great. I've been here before, but this was the first time in the private room. The owner... More

Our group of three went for dinner on. Sunday night. Orders are placed while standing at the cashier, and except for mixed drinks, they are brought to your table. (I had to stand in line once to order and then again to pick up a margarita.) We did not have trouble finding a table, although there were very few available.... More

Born and raised in Birmingham....last night was my first visit!! They have an inside and outside deating area. Do not expect table cloths. You can expect a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Don't worry about dressing up, but definitely a good date place. Their staff were all smiles and laughs with the southern hospitality to match. Their menu was just big... More

Rojo is just awesome. Go there if you want a casual place and you want to be able to sit outside. The food is great but you have to order at the bar (no table service). The only downside is that sometimes they are so crowded you have to wait for a table but I'm sure on any busy night... More

Rojo is one of my favorite lunch spots, my usual go-to. But, I hadn't been there since last year, I believe. A friend and I met for lunch, and while it seemed like lots of people were arriving, there were always available tables. I usually get the spinach & mushroom quesadilla or Tex-Mex shrimp on salad. On this day, I... More

Our first trip to Rojo and the weather was so nice we dined on the patio. The people watching is great since the patio is so near the sidewalk. If you are a dog lover there is a cooler for pets to have a cool drink as they walk along. Place order and pay at the counter, your food will... More
