“Menu unique, somewhat pricey.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had good and efficient service here on a Saturday night. This large restaurant handles a crowd well. The menu is interesting and the food tasted fresh, which is often hard to find "up north". We found it pricey. I wanted fajitas and at over $16, I would have appreciated a half order/smaller serving and more reasonable price. I took half back to the hotel where we luckily had a fridge. A meal to be shared apparently. At over $7, the kids chicken strips also seemed on the higher end of kids meals.

“Great Service!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Didn't eat, but the bartender (young blonde girl) was on the ball. Very welcoming and did a wonderful job. We sat at the bar and was impressed how well she multitask-ed and was friendly and served the guests. Nice job!

“Delicious Mexican food!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We ate the Red Mesa Grill, in Boyne City, on a Monday night while we were visiting in beautiful northern Michigan. And yes, even on a Monday night, the restaurant was super busy and nearly every table was full. We discovered the reason for that is great food and excellent service! My husband had enchiladas and said they were among the best he's ever had. Three of us ordered the mango chicken salads and they were delicious. Next time we're in that area, we'll definitely plan to eat at the Red Mesa Grill!

“Mexican in Michigan?”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Being in Dallas, I'm wary about eating Mexican food in Northern Michigan. But Red Mesa is good (including their margaritas). Get there early because there is often a wait.

“Not your average Mexican”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I was expecting traditional Mexican. The Red Mesa is good food, very fresh ingredients. Just not whats was expecting. The wait staff was so friendly and gave advice to the area. The food is priced very reasonable.
