We're locals, and have eaten at the Red Mesa numerous times. The strengths include the friendly, warm staff. From receiving the first greeting, through all the server visits, to paying the bill, all contacts are positive. I think the employees are well-compensated, professionally-trained, and long-timers, and these factors all come together to contribute to a positive dining experience. (Ask for Kim, one of the best.) Food is very good, and served in plentiful portions. There is a new vegetarian menu. I can't speak knowledgeably about the drinks, but the more-expensive margaritas seem good. Happy hour offers some excellent bargains! It can be noisy at peak times, but what do you expect? It's hard to not look forward to a Red Mesa visit!

Loved the atmosphere....casual but fun. Nice porch out back. Authentic food and although a little high on price, definitely worth it.

We've been here dozens of times over the years and have only accolades. Less expensive and less busy at lunch, but never quiet or sleepy. Quality has never waivered.Their formula is authentic yet creative Mexican-style food. Their margaritas are made with freshly squeezed limes, not that cheap, high fructose stuff from the bottle. Freshly made, hearty tortillas. You cannot get this food at any other Mexican place I've been. When I've been to other Mexican places and ask if they have smoked refried beans, they've never heard of them. Try them as they are a real treat. The servers are always enthusiastic and accomodating. A fun and unique place for all.

The waitress was knowledgeable and helpful. The food was delicious. Popular place, no wonder, worth the trip.

The food selection was unique and very tasty! We watched most of a Tiger's game and never were made to feel rushed to leave. The server was great and really enhanced our dining experience. Prices were reasonable and the tequila flights were fun to sample. One of the best restaurants - if not the best restaurant - in the area!!
