“The Best Steak Ribeye I've Ever Eaten!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

My partner and I have never experienced a steak ribeye like the one we enjoyed last evening at Red Mesa. It was a featured special that read: "STEAK RIBEYE • 14 oz Peruvian chile grilled steak with jalapeño cream sauce, chile morita corn esquites and fried onions. $28.00"

After asking the server about what she recommended, she first said if you haven't had our guacamole, you should We listened. The green goodness arrived along with with the freshly baked tortilla chips and invigorating salsa. So far, so good. When our server returned to take our entree order, we simply couldn't make a decision. She nearly guaranteed that if we ordered the Steak Ribeye, we wouldn't regret it. She was right!

The attached picture and this description can't possible do this review of it justice. Find time soon to enjoy a late night meal at Red Mesa (so that you get a seat right away). :-)

We went there for business dinner and the atmosphere was fantastic. Food was delightful and the service was great. I recommend the fried Cuban bananas.

“Great atmosphere, excellent food”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Great place for Mexican food. Waiter helped us to pick which dishes to try, and we were both very satisfied with our meals. The atmosphere of Red Mesa was among the best of any restaurant I've been to, and the patio area is beautiful. Excellent service and the food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.

“Not your typical Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Best chicken tortilla soup. Nice menu with something for everyone. Not just burritos and grande margaritas. Good value - and very comfortable ambiance. The food is really flavorful. Locals love it - not touristy. We will go back !

“Good food, upscale”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

The food was really great. It was a little pricey with a family of 4 to eat here; however, we were grateful that they did have a kids menu. I would recommend the food. The Chicken Enchiladas were AMAZING.
