Have experienced the food and drink at Red Mesa five or six times in the past two years and have not been disappointed. The service team works well together and the food is total quality and delicious. A great place for a casual night with friends and/or family.

We got the reviews from Trip Advisor and decided to try it. Wow! Everything was superb. My husband and I shared the Chicken Santa Fe and the Chili rellenos. There were two different Chili Rellenos, one with beef and one with cheese. The sauces were very different and very good. The service was excellent and prompt. I highly recommend it.

Having eaten in restaurants in many parts of the world and the USA, Red Mesa is easily one of the best restaurants in the Tampa-St Petersbrug area. It is NOT Mexican, it is SouthWestern. Food quality and presentation are outstanding. Pricing is reasonable. Good wine and beer list, friendly, well trained wait staff. Don't be surprised if it becomes an OSI concept. Patrons stand in line on weekend after 9:00 PM.

Don't let the "Denny's" atmosphere steer you away. I was very pleased with the excellent quality of the food, with equally good service to match. This is what true Mexican food should be like. The Chile Relleno was excellent -spicy but not overly - available with a sirloin or Monterey Jack stuffing. The accompanying enchilada (on the combo) was excellent as well. My companions were equally enchanted with the fine dining experince. Portions are reasonably sized but still a value for the low prices they charge. I highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the area.

We were in St. Petersburg last weekend, stop by this restaurant that was recomended by a friend, the food was truly wonderfull, everything is prepared fresh, a great place to bring children since they have a menu for them as well. Must try the stuffed shrimp and the mar and tierra combo, leave room for desert and try the guava pastry.
