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

We had great guacamole made and served at the table. Good salsa and chips but the roasted vegetables with goat cheese had mostly tired broccoli and only one small strip of the roasted red pepper mentioned in the description of the dish in the menu. Service was good. Location great. Food? So so.

Wonderful atmosphere, great service and fantastic food! Our waitress Jenna was an absolute charm! We had the chicken fajitas which our sale priced at $9.95 on Wednesday nights. They were as good as any we've had in Mexico! They were so big one is enough for two people and they do allow you to share an entree. Downtown Rochester store... More

Rojo's is located right on main street in the heart of downtown Rochester. Great place to people watch - especially when the city is "lit" for the holidays. The decor and vibe is very cool and the place is always buzzing. We were there late on a Saturday and really enjoyed the live entertainment (Jaime Marvin). Notice I haven't said... More

The best thing about this restaurant is taco Tuesday ... Dollar tacos are super fast but very average and they offer chicken or ground beef . Tabeside guacamole is really good and they have aGreat tequila menu and the margaritas are good too! I'm used to a little more authentic Mexican and thier food is a little bland but it's... More

The family and I went there for dinner on Taco Tuesday because they have $1.00 Tacos. I have two younger boys, six and nine, so they are not big eaters. We got chips and salsa served for starters. All the food was great and we were all happy. One thing that caught us off guard was that we needed to... More

We have a difficult time finding good Mexican food after living in the southwest. This food was very good but you do pay for it. Service was great facility a little crowded. This will be more of a special occasion place than just going out to eat.

We went to Rojo on a Sunday afternoon for our daughter's birthday. There were a few tables filled but it was pretty empty. We were seated right away by a pleasant staff member and our server came right over to take our drink order. This place may have the biggest tequila menu I have ever seen. Hubby had a margarita...

When Rojo first opened Downtown, we were excited to give it a try and were pleasantly surprised at the fresh tasting ingredients. As of late, the food is sub par. I ordered brisket tacos and was disappointed that the food felt and tasted as if it were microwaved then set under a warming lamp. I don't mean to sound overly... More
