Based on a friends recommendation my wife and I went to this place. We could not find parking easily thus I would say place is very popular. The place is nice and service was good. Unfortunately cannot say the same about the food. I had fish and it was not well prepared. Should have sent it back but it was... More

I haven't visited Red Mesa for many years but remembered it as very good. Unfortunately I was very disappointed on a recent visit. The food just wasn't that good. Weak guacamole, so so enchiladas and kind of a hurry up experience. Overall service was very good and nice menu but the food just wasn't quite there. It is worth a... More

Who was average. Service was great. I would have expected better tasting empanadas, but the feelings tasted more like Asian. For the service I'd go back.

We arrived at 11 am on a Sunday. The wait was 30-45 min which is the norm for the area. This restaraunt reminds me of a 1920's house that has been converted into a restaraunt. It would work if the waiters didnt have to squeeze in an out of the room. It's awkward- take a table out and give everyone... More

Plenty of parking, no wait for a table @ 2PM Sat. Had lunch with pinto bean soup, Del Ray shredded beef buritto. Service was great, ask for Gabby, food was average with no particular pizzaz. Decor ok, older. Door to mens john opened directly onto view of urinal. No paper towels. We wouldn' t bother to drive the 10 miles... More

After reading reviews I knew I was having there famous Sangria! When I got the menu and had 7 options for Sangria i was more than pleased. I went with the traditional Red and tried the Rosa. It was yummy! not to sweet and you could still taste the wine. I decided on the chips and salsa and chicken quesadillas.... More

Been going there for years and things do change but it lost it old wow factor. Floor was dirty crumbs and what not. There to my amazement allowed a lap dog in the dining area. Much to our dismay won't be back.

Friendly staff and good Mexican food makes a visit here a really good experience. Would also recommend the local draft beer.
