Upscale Mexican fare, ok service

The food here is upscale Mexican and generally good, but it was better a few years ago. The salsa could be improved along with the chips, but their margaritas are very good and so are the nachos and tacos. The service can be a little spotty. I like the bar area quite a bit and prefer to sit in... read more

Our dinner at Rojo was a pleasant experience. The waitress handled our group with friendliness and ease. The only negative is that is a little pricey for Mexican food.

fun place for dinner. Special nights....Tuesday Taco night, Thursday fajitas and drink specials. Busy place, drop someone off to register and get your beeper. Go park and walk for a few minutes downtown. Fast service, fun crowd, can get very noisy due to large college crowd and many families. TVs at the bar, but periodically they have live music. Had...

Went because of a recommendation of a friend. The chicken Fajita had a great taste with the spices that they put into it, but the Chicken Chimiciganda was not one of the best, it was filled with mostly beans and very little chicken. fi

Andiamo's - stick with Italian! there is really not much more to say in this review. If you like canned re-fried beans, stale chips, and lukewarm food try this place. I've been 3 times and all were lousy. WOuld not recommend this place at all. It is a waste of Main Street frontage.

Had a family dinner for six here this Sunday and I have to admit it was very good. They have a display some 30 feet long of perhaps every Tequla ever made. I don't like the stuff but the display was interesting. The people we were with said the Margaritas were excellent. Two of the menu items around our table... More

Although the service was poor (we had to repeatedly ask to order our drinks and remind the waiter after 15 minutes that our drinks were waiting on the bar for us -- and the entire process of ordering food was slow), the food was excellent. We were celebrating my birthday and the three of us girls took leftovers home.

Chicken tacos are always very dry. Everything is very hot. Should be a mild salsa for those who love Mexican food, but, don't like EXTREME heat.

We met friends for dinner in December, had a great time! It was during the Rochester Light Show, so it was very busy. We had to wait but enjoyed a drink at the bar. The bar service and Mojoitos were great. I ordered shrimp tacos, which were delious! Only downfall, table service was not friendly or efficient!

I had been to Rojo in Novi several years ago and thought it was great - seems like it's going downhill to 'average' again. Our waitress was very nice and chatty - yet the food was average, served lukewarm, and the table side guacamole was made with garlic oil and not real garlic, and had no real taste. Which is... More
