Have not been there in 10 years. Always a crowd. Thought we would try again. Not impressed. If you go hope you like cilantro, everything is covered in it.

I've wanted to visit this place for years and finally made it last week - inadvertently on Father's Day. It was packed but surprisingly we were seated rather quickly. It's a small, cramped restaurant and it was pretty loud during our visit. The older I...More

I eat here every time I’m in the area for work. Their sangria is the best! I’ve tried many different appetizers and main courses, and everything has been great. A meal there wouldn’t be complete without the churros for dessert. If you haven’t eaten here,...More

Delicious food, good drinks & amazing outdoor atmosphere! Every item we ordered was fresh and even the tortilla shells and chips seemed home made! Would highly recommend and try to go at a non-busy time to enjoy the outdoor space!

My experience is Red Mesa offers a three course or so special for certain evenings, but only for certain periods of time. Give them a call at (727) 527-8728 & ask.
