Great place for Mexican food. Waiter helped us to pick which dishes to try, and we were both very satisfied with our meals. The atmosphere of Red Mesa was among the best of any restaurant I've been to, and the patio area is beautiful. Excellent service and the food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.

Best chicken tortilla soup. Nice menu with something for everyone. Not just burritos and grande margaritas. Good value - and very comfortable ambiance. The food is really flavorful. Locals love it - not touristy. We will go back !

The food was really great. It was a little pricey with a family of 4 to eat here; however, we were grateful that they did have a kids menu. I would recommend the food. The Chicken Enchiladas were AMAZING.

A must stop for us during any Florida trip. Packed out at 2:00 PM on a mid week day is not surprising, given the quality and uniqueness of the fare. Bean soup was awesome appie, and wife had seafood burrito special which she said was amazing.

Enjoyed this restaurant so much, that I was back in two days with my husband. Yummy duck tacos. Everything was great.Good drinks. Great atmosphere in the outside patio at night, it was stunning with bamboo and water features. Inside a little noisy but fun. Go to the the Red Mesa downtown.

One of my St, Petersburg favorite places to eat. The filet burrito for lunch is a spicy treat. Everything on the menu is very tasty and reasonably priced. Love the salsa and Sangria too. The dinner menu is different, but it has many delicious choices. One Caveat, they are nazi's with their reservations. If your party is too small (under... More

They have great chips and salsa, I love their Red Mesa salad and their black bean soup. I've never tried something here I didn't like. My only critique would be that the bar is too small and there can be a wait due to popularity of the restaurant. There is a Red Mesa Cantina in downtown St Pete that I... More

I have been here several times over the past couple years. My go to entree is the Gorgonzola stuffed filet. Pair this with Red Sangria and I'm in Heaven!

I love the menu, the service is impeccable and we eat here nearly weekly. If you can catch the Sunset Menu, before 6 PM, prices are really wonderful. No matter who comes to visit us, I always suggest this place as our go to place for entertaining. There is no outdoor seating, but the location on a busy street would... More
