After a long day of travel, Mesa Restaurant served us a wonderful Italian meal. The linguine with clam sauce has a good 3/4c of clams and the fettuccini alfredo - well, my husband used extra bread to clean his plate!

The restaurant isn't large and appears to share bar and kitchen with the "Mesa Grill" next door. During our visit, the restaurant was filled to capacity most of the time. Should you want a steak, it's on the menu for the Grill, but I suspect that it would gladly appear at your table for the meat lover in the group.

The only "con" was the wait staff. It was apparent that the room was split between waitresses. While one side got great service, we watched several tables on the other side wait and wait to have their orders taken while seeing guests that had arrived after they had already being served their drinks and salads.

Nevertheless, we will definitely be returning to Mesa Restaurant in the future.

We had a very nice dining experience at the Mesa restaurant. Best Italian food we've had in Arizona - this was certainly an unexpected surprise after a long day of driving across I-40. Service was friendly and the food was delicious. We were there on a Wednesday evening and the place was very busy - traveling families as well as locals! If you're looking for a delicious alternative to burgers and highway food - try the Mesa!

Despite the name and the dated decor, great food, good service. Right around the corner from the Travelodge where we stayed.

When we asked people where to eat in town, the same three places were always mentioned. We chose Mesa our second night and it was very good. Our food was very good and the wait staff was courteous and effecient. Eat here, try the lasgna!

The service here was top notch and the food excellent. I had chicken cacciatore which I think was some of the best I've ever had. This restaurant is a step above some of the other dining options in Holbrook.
