A group of us have regular weekly meet ups. We have relocated our venue multiple times when the establishment raises prices, reduces quantity or quality of food or makes other undesirable changes. We have been to Red Rocks in the past, so tried it again when our previous place made substantial changes to their menu and prices. We had a... More

Red Rocks Cafe has consistently very tasty tex-mex oriented food. While the associated large bar can be quite noisy, there is a separate dining area with comfortable booths and tables. We think this restaurant has some of the most delicious tex-mex food in the Washington, DC area. The wait staff is always very courteous and efficient. Prices are reasonable for... More

The bar drinks during Happy Hour were okay, but nothing to write home about. You need to order off the real menu to improve. The food was indifferent as well...from the jalapeno poppers to the nachoes to the apple flautas. Save your money and try a happy hour somewhere else.

Great little pub with an even bigger menu!! Bar staff are friendly and make you feel welcome! Always nice when the bartender will change the tv to put on a game that you want to see.

Great margaritas, drinks for every taste and the bartenders are friendly and quick to learn and remember your tastes. It's a small no frills type of place but the food is good (try the fried tacos) with simple touches that make the difference.

Lots of Southwest décor. Wait person was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Chips and salsa is provided while you wait for your meal. Food was very good and plentiful. Wine was very reasonably priced.

This place is supposed to have more different types of tequila (well over 100) than anywhere else in the area, and from the outside it appears to be kinda happening. So, we went for dinner and drinks. The loud crowd outside occupied all the tables, so we waded through the cigarette smoke and went in. Right away, you can tell... More

We come to this bar often but probably won't anymore because they have introduced a processing fee on credit cards. It's a shame this bar can't afford the fees that our involved with swiping a credit card and charges the customer a $1 very time they swipe their card. It's not like my bill was only $5 dollars. Put a... More

Red Rocks is Centreville's answer to a local pub. Great brews on draft, a full bar with so many Tequilas you will need to come daily for months to sample them all. A menu that incorporates a "Southwest" flair. Your visit will start with fresh chips and house made salsa. Check out happy hour specials. Fajitas are my favorite. Lots... More

Decent food, good happy hour deals. When I want Mexican food, but don't want to splurge, this is the place.
