Red Mesa Cantina is a fantastic restaurant. Every single visit is delicious, while there are sometimes small changes to the menu, the "old favorites" are always there and always great. The tacos are unique and flavorful and the El Gordo burrito is amazing. Their Brunch menu is also phenomenal. Courtyard seating is delightful, even on a hot Florida day it seems pleasant to sit outside!

Just stopped in for a Mother's Day breakfast. We were seated immediately. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered steel cut oats($6), my person ordered eggs Benedict($10) and we split a side of sweet potato pancakes. ($6.5). We are so full!!!

As always the atmosphere both inside and out is hip, comfortable and inviting.

Would highly recommend for breakfast or lunch.

Our group of about 20 fathers & teenage boys dined here on a Saturday before a game at nearby Al Lang Stadium. They got us seated inside quickly, got us fed and out the door on time - not an easy task. Kind of an unusual menu for a Mexican restaurant; more pulled pork and shredded beef than chicken or ground beef. My pulled pork enchiladas were excellent and all of my fellow diners were happy as well. Great outdoor bar and seating area -- would love to come back without the kids sometime!

Our large party was quickly seated and greeted by a friendly server. The menu offered a large variety of options. We were a group of nine and each of us was very pleased with what we offered. The prices were more than fair for the generous portions.I can recommend the yucca fries and interesting ketchup which accompanied my delicious mahi mahi sandwich. None of us ordered a drink other than water but the menu listed a variety of margaritas and sangria that looked worth a trip back.
