We have only heard positives about this restaurant, so were surprised how long it took for us to find our way there. Certainly an nontraditional latin menu, it was comprehensive enought for everyone in our party. The noise level was high so I wouldnt recommend it for a rommantic date, but its a happy kind of noise that comes from... More

We enjoyed brunch. We had a good mix of breakfast burritos and individual street tacos. Indoor space is great. Service was fine. We would go back.

We came to celebrate my husbands birthday. We got the tamale appetizer which had a great taste. I got the crab and shrimp enchilada based on trip advisor reviews and my husband and daughter got the chicken enchiladas. I actually like the chicken enchilada better than shrimp and crab that I found to be bland with cream sauce. The chicken... More

Love this place! My favorite is the Cedar Salmon and Southwest Grouper but I pretty much love everything they serve. Everyone is friendly and the service is great. Early bird specials are good and quite a few choices. Oh, and don't forget the Sangria which is very tasty.

I don't understand all the hype about this restaurant. Tijuana Flats and Carmelita's has better food. Smallest menu ever and just average food

We had read that Red Mesa was one of the best Mexican restaurants in town. For our first visit to Red Mesa, we arrived shortly before 3 PM just in time for a late lunch (after 3 PM the Dinner menu is only offered, which we did not want at the time). My wife order the Chicken Enchilada and I... More

My husband has been wanting to go to Red Mesa for a very long time. I finally agreed and we were both incredibly underwhelmed. Our server was awful. His name was Justin and he was super friendly when he first got to our table to tell us about the specials, but after that, he could barely be bothered to bring... More

Four of us had four different meals and everyone loved what they had. People at another table were leaning over asking what we had and asking how it was. They ordered some of the same and some different things too. This is a busy place so go early if you can. They offer free valet parking. The crowds waiting to... More

Red Mesa Restaurant serves unique and creative Mexican dishes. I tried the Crab Guacamole and the Enchilada Trio. The Crab Guacamole was creamy, lightly citrusy, and mixed with shreds of fresh tender blue crab meat. The Enchilada Trio was basically a sample plate of the restaurant’s three unique enchiladas, which included a duck enchilada with raspberry chipotle cream sauce, a... More
