First waitress came by and said she would be right with us but did not come back for over five minutes. The ten plus dollar Margarita was served in a water glass and had to continually ask for more salsa and chips. Need to either bring out larger salsa bowls or make the salsa and chips accessible to customers so... More

They do a really good job at authentic Mexican food. They have a great selection for their menu. The wait staff was really friendly and service was fast. I would recommend anyone go to Boyne city, mi and give this place a try.

I have been to Red Mesa several times with family during our trips to the area throughout the years, even took friends here on a day trip. Food is always great and there are a lot of options that are Mexican style to make anyone happy. Staff always has been friendly and personable. The atmosphere is nice, with a bar... More

I love fish tacos but tried whitefish fajitas this time and they were wonderful. There was enough food for two, seasonings were perfect, Bloody Marys and margaritas were exceptional, waitstaff was efficient and fun. Our table also ordered steak specials, a dinner salad, and dessert, all of which were outstanding. Cannot wait to go back!

Stopped by for a snack after a volleyball match. The had $3 tacos. They told we couldn't get it to go. We waited a 1/2 hour before anyone put the order in. When we finally got the tacos, it was vey tasty. So the final, we loved the food but the service was questioned.

They own several restaurants in this part of the state and they never fail to impress. Service is always good, the food even better. My waitress was right on top of things, very well done to her!

We have been meaning to try this restaurant, seeing its good reviews. We were not disappointed. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We tried new things (for us), such as the black bean cakes, and they were delicious. Highly recommend.
