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

Fun little out of the way place in the middle of Highlands neighborhood serving both Mexican and American food (menus available online). We had Mexican entrees, and they were very good but not too spicy. Best seating is outdoor to enjoy the atmosphere of the neighborhood, but they do have a few tables inside as well. Good selection of beer,... More

I was with a large group visiting B'ham and this was a "must eat" place from a local that one of our party knew. Unique atmosphere in what seemed to be a neighborhood setting. We had to park quite a distance from the restaurant and walk, but it wasn't too bad. Stood in line to order at the register, then... More

I was driving through Bham for work with 2 friends (associates) and went here on the recommendation of one of the people with me. It was a great recommendation!!! It is very casual and quick and fresh. there is a full bar with several Margarita's specialties. I had the Paella with shrimp and it was REALLY GOOD!!! It came out... More

Good beer...great location...happy dogs...decent food. Good place to end the day/start the weekend. Sit outside and people watch. No barhops so it's kind of self-serve (they will bring your meal out to you but you have to go in to order/refill your beverage).

It's definitely not a typical restaurant...you order from the front, they give you a number, and you seat yourself. Food was pretty good, and was fresh and hot at arrival. Parking is def and issue in the area, but I'd say it's worth it.

Driving through Alabama, we settled on Rojo for lunch because it was dog friendly and had pretty good reviews. While it is tucked away in a neighborhood, our GPS had no problem finding it. It's a different type of restaurant, not at all what we expected. You seat yourself, and we were able to find a table on the patio... More

Rojo is an unusual place. to say the least. It features both American and Mexican fare on the menu. I have never been disappointed in any choice I made. There are many great draft beer choices as well. The outdoor dining is great in the more temperate months of the year. Take a stroll down Highland Ave. after your meal... More
