My second visit was just as delicious as my first! The atmosphere is very nice, food is great and reasonably priced. My new favorite restaurant when I visit St. Pete.

This restaurant is small so we had a bit of a wait since it was a last minute decision to eat here. Would recommend reservations. The menu offers much more than the usual taco/enchilada/burrito combinations. It a place that makes you want to return to work your way through the menu. They cook shrimp particularly well and have an interesting... More

Really interesting outdoor courtyard bar and dining area, great Mexican food, and wonderful wait staff. I wish I remember the dish the waitress described as "balls of deliciousness" because she was absolutely right! If she had not recommended it we would not have tried it because the description in the menu was not that appealing!

We were looking for some "tasty" food and mexican came to mind to we tried Red Mesa. About a mile down 4th St from downtown St Pete. We found the food to be delicious (black bean soup was great and the three enchiladas platter very filling), service to be spot on and a delightful place to have a "tasty" dinner.... More

Sunday brunch is the time to go to Red Mesa, our favorite place in St. Pete. We were seated after only a short wait, too. My daughter, visiting from Boston, ordered the strawberry sangria and was thrilled to find fresh strawberries floating in and flavoring it. You could suck those things down all day! I ordered Huarache de Huevos Mexicana--just... More

There was a queue to be seated so sat outside with a few beers but encouraged by diners leaving who said it was worth the wait for the best Mexican food they had ever had. Certainly it was very good and the selection and service also v. good. Perhaps not totally authentic Mexican menu but everything we had was superb... More

Overall, the food very good, service adequate and somewhere I would both recommend and go to again. Note: This is Southwest fare--not strictly Mexican and not Tex-Mex. That is an important distinction as Southwestern "Mexican" has smoky flavors and a touch of heat in every dish. This is not the place to get a giant burrito as that isn't the... More
