Must Visit!

Great food and spiced just right. My favorites were salmon and pork entries both served with black beans and rice. Plantains also great addition to the meals. Chips and salsa served while you wait.

The menu looks great but the food is just average at a higher price than it is worth. I live right up the road so I have tried the food several times hoping it to be great but have always left unsatisfied.

This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Started with the guacamole trio which was good but I am a purest when it comes to guacamole and would definitely try something different next time. We had the Southwest Grilled Grouper and the Enchilada Trio. Both meals were outstanding. Fried ice cream for dessert. We... More

Red Mesa is one of our favorite restaurants. The cuisine is definitely up-scale Mexican, with prices to match, but generally, it's well worth it. My partner and I go there frequently. Tonight I was, for the first time, disappointed with my dinner. I ordered a special - the Pork Milanesa with roasted corn and garlic mashed potatoes. The potatoes and... More

As far as mexican food goes this place is pretty expensive. I like to call it fancy Mexican food. But the food here is mostly worth the price. My favorites are the chicken taquitos and the El gordo (this burrito is the size of a baby). They do very well with their sauces. I love to come here for lunch... More

Great food and service since they opened. We go a least once a month as a treat. Always busy because they are in demand, year round so not tourists. Have valet parking if needed.

Great food and even better sangria! My only complaint is they need bigger space. The place is always packed!

We had a friendly waiter and good service but the food was average. Salsa had a great flavor but the chicken and steak in my meal were rather tough.
