My husband and I love the food here. We've never had anything bad from Rojo, and we eat there a lot! Sometimes it can be noisy inside, but otherwise, fun atmosphere.

I was looking for something not too heavy, and ordered the Chicken Arugula Tacos with Pineapple Pico de Gallo............perfect! Process are not bad, and service was good, friendly. Nice place to kick back outside.

We visited this restaurant for a special event. While waiting for our main course, they served some of the best, homemade salsa I have ever had. The guacamole and cheese dip were also good. Drinks were reasonably priced. I ate so many chips and salsa I didn't have much room for the main course.

My wife and I tried Rojo this past weekend. The first word that comes to mind is Outstanding! The Fuego Burger and the Spinach & Mushroom Quesadilla are Outstanding! We weren't sure what to do when we went in. But we finally discovered that you go to the back of the restaurant and order at the counter. We filled our... More

Nothing fancy--just lots of hearty food served with personality. Rojo was recommended by locals--someone who literally lives across the street--and I'm glad we followed his advice. I'd cheerfully return. Pro Tip: you can never go wrong with tater tots.

Good burger. Good people watching. Eat here often. Consistently good food. Good beer selection-cold. Eclectic crowd. Order inside and get your own drink. They will deliver your food. Eat outside. Lovely view.

Rojo serves a range of food from south of the border to more Americanized fare. Located on a lovely corner of Highland Avenue across from a park, the atmosphere is both a soothing and exciting one in which to enjoy your food. I enjoy the variety that Rojo offers. Nice staff, too. You order from the counter and seat yourself.
