We've been to Red Mesa twice in the past week, once for lunch to check out the strong Trip Advisor recommendations and the second time with out-of-town friends who, like us, enjoy Mexican food. Red Mesa deserves its TA rating! The restaurant was crowded on both occasions, exhibiting a loyal, local... read more

The food and people are great. I cannot think of just 1 thing to tell about Red Mesa. I go as often as I can because the food is always the best. Ask for the specials (you usually don't have to ask but if you do they explain the whole thing).

Good food, good service, I love the building(downtown) All the staff is great we have been here many times and have always had good food and a good over all experience. It's also very nice to sit outside and enjoy the warm weather we almost always have here in Florida.

One of my favorite places for lunch. Have never had a bad meal here and would highly recommend. My favorites are the Burrito Del Ray and the Filet Mignon Burrito. Their salsa is one of the best I have ever had in a restaurant. I notice in looking at the reviews that some of the negative reviews are referring to... More

My wife and I had visited with some friends in St. Pete Saturday afternoon and were looking for someplace to eat when dinner time came around. I told my wife I was in the mood for some Mexican cuisine and she said she had heard good things about Red Mesa. We decided to give it a try and I was... More

The food was tasty with great flavor and the serving was attentive. Several people picking up dishes and keeping the drinks and food coming. There was light music playing in the background. And, a upstairs club if food is third and dance environment is primary on your plans. The restaurant has choice inside and outside dining - perfect for after... More

I have been here three times, each time thinking I would have a better experience. Each time I learn that whomever is creating the menu must just randomly be throwing things together in hopes to resemble this type of cuisine and hopefully get a hit. The last visit we were getting rained on in the courtyard, and no staff came... More
