Excellent!

The first time we went the place was packed, so we came back early the next day. The food was excellent! Lots to choose from on the menu. The staff was great in explaining the food and portion sizes. They have a lovely patio with a large water feature and bar.

It's tough to find good southwestern food in Florida, but Red Mesa is an exception. Everything here is good or better, starting with the chips and salsa. I had shredded beef enchiladas and my wife had salmon. Both of us loved the food. The restaurant offers a number of enticing desserts, but we were too full to try them. Two... More

Even when the place is packed and service slips, the kitchen always delivers. Food is always good. Its really nice to get a dish like duck in a "Mexican/Southwest" restaurant. The non-traditional nature of the menu adds to the charm

Hands-down red Mesa is the best Mexican food in all of Tampa bay. Started with a cup of black bean soup it was perfect. Tonight's ceviche was wonderful a tag bit hot, spicy. But quite enjoyable on a cold winters night. I had the three (tri) enchiladas. Cooked perfectly. Wonderful presentation. Very large portions. It was so large I was... More

Stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Service and food was excellent. I ordered the lunch special of the day which was a burrito in a bowl. I had the chicken. Was a nice size portion and the chicken had an excellent flavor. Presentation was great. Only complaint would be they charge $3 for chips and salsa where most... More

Very good Mexican food. We had a "first-timer" with us and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. One of the "regulars" with us was a bit disappointed to find his lunch favorite wasn't on the dinner menu though. Nice atmosphere even though they were quite busy. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Delicious chips and salsa!

If you like good, no - great Mexican food, you cannot go wrong at Red Mesa. Not at all a fussy place, their food is masterful in its flavors - not to mention surprising in its innovative combinations.
