I read the great reviews about this place here on TripAdvisor and decided for my dad's birthday I would get him a gift certificate. I live outside of the country, but management at Red Mesa, in particular Aaron, was extremely helpful with allowing me to purchase the gift card over the phone, holding it at the restaurant for my parents...

Went for dinner on a Monday night. Seated right away in a booth up front. Server was knowledgeable about the menu. They bring corn chips and salsa to the table. I had the Trail salad and added grilled chicken. The salad includes jicama & pumpkin seeds with balsamic vinaigrette. Nice amount of chicken. All quite good. My dining mate had... More

Top notch Mexican fare at a downtown location. Service is very good. Main downside is the noise level, which can be quite high.

My mother-in-law took us a few months ago and we were instantly hooked! The chips and salsa are awesome, as is the sangria. When our food arrived we were pleasantly surprised by the nice presentation. Not only does the food look awesome, but it tastes awesome! The prices aren't bad either so we have been back many times since, including... More

Compliments to the Chef and team; compliments to a great server Fernando. We spent Saturday evening with friends at Red Mesa and were very happy with our entire evening. Just coming back from travel where Ceviche is a "staple" and marvelous; I will say that Red Mesa's was just as outstanding as any I've had. Fernando went above and beyond... More

This is my second time eating at Red Mesa several years after my first visit. Both experiences were delicious but I remember it being very expensive. However, I was a college student on my first visit and I can say that it's very affordable and worth it. We went on a Friday night and I would recommend a reservation since... More

Red Mesa is always a default favorite. My husband and I like their salads and shrimp dishes. And their specials are usually exceptional. Plus, their chips and salsa are the best!
