I LOVE Mexican and Tex-Mex food. Like LOVE IT!!! I feel that more often than not most Mexican restaurants cover their sub par food in equally sub par sauces or gallons of cheese to hide the food. I mean does anyone really like all that fake white Velveeta that coagulates the second it hits your table?!?!?
Red Mesa changes it all! I was pleased to see that their menu had most of the Mexican staples you expect to see (tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc.) but some of them had a twist.
I personally think the burritos are the big test of a good Mexican restaurant. I think many restaurants put in just a few of the good things, meat, veggies, guacamole, but then STUFF them with refried beans, not Red Mesa!!!
I had the shrimp burrito and it did not disappoint! I was a little concerned when it first came out bc it was covered in sauce. I'm glad to say I worried for nothing! The sauce was a delicious chipotle sauce that was out of this world! The burrito had shrimp, cheese, black beans, guacamole and the appropriate veggies. It was, HANDS DOWN, the best burrito I've EVER had! Had I not been trying to be polite I would have licked the plate!
I have already made 2 lunch dates with friends there simply bc I want to try everything on the menu. Also, the chips and salsa were fabulous! The service was also great and they had a nice kids menu.
I think I will go there for dinner tonight, YUM!!!
