The food was excellent and the service was superb. This is a must go to in the Tampa area. Most people have figured it out, so you will have to wait on a Saturday night, but it is worth it. One of the best Mexican means we have had in the Tampa area.

We went here for Sunday breakfast as we have done before. Forgot how crowded it is but were able to get in anyway. We were on our way to the airport and the staff helped us get served quickly. The food is always good here. If you are looking for value, I'd stick with breakfast or lunch.

This was the second time we've been to Red Mesa. It was early on New Year's Eve and we had to wait about forty minutes, as they don't take reservations for less than a party of six. It was worth the wait. In spite of the fact that the restaurant was full, we received great service by a knowledgeable server,... More

The ceviche was great but only if you like spicy food. I also had the duck, tuna, and shrimp tacos. All were very good with my favorite being the duck and tuna in second. I'd like to go back again as soon as I can.

My wife, son, and I had Sunday Brunch at Red Mesa and were very pleased with the food and service. The Sunday Brunch menu is very diverse and has lots to choose from in Southwest offerings. We had dined at Red Mesa for dinner before and knew this restaurant to be the best Mexican Restaurant in the area so we... More

Figured out the reviews here, by seeing the clientele that eats here. Bland is the key word, from the salsa you pay for to the lack of spices or seasoning on the food. Did you guys ever here of "Cumin" for use, or how about Tacos el pastor, or something other these lame sauces that basically cover the lack of... More

The outside patio is really amazing. We would have loved to sit out there with the fountain and gardens, but the day we visited it was raining. The food was very good. Our server was o.k., not very quick, and she got several things wrong on our order. I would go again especially on a sunny day.

My wife and I stopped here based on recommendations from Trip Advisor. Didn't know what to expect. We love Tex Mex food, having lived for many years in Texas. This was a shock. We sat at the bar thinking we would get better service (and it was the only place we could watch the playoffs). wrong. The bartender was more... More

We are regulars at Red Mesa. The food is very flavorful. Not necessarily hot and spicy (you can get it that way) but they have some fabulous sauces and cheese dressings that really add to the meal. The prices are very reasonable. Entrees start well below $20 and we often split a $7 salad. It's a lot of delicious food... More
