Our son (9 years old) loved this restaurant and would have gone there every night if we would have agreed. The salsa and chips were really good. Some menu choices were tasty, others not as much. The black bean cakes were over fried and dry. Salads were good but the meat in them weren't quite as good. Service was good. Drinks and atmosphere were good.

We've been going to Red Mesa Grill for over 7 years, and they have never failed us! Their menu is not typical Mexican food, it's more South American. They have wonderful Happy Hour food that is just right in size and price. The servers are very friendly and knowledgeable and can help with any questions.

A great Mexican restaurant with great food, but a bit pricey for Mexican... Be sure to get there early because it gets crowded fast.

Some of the best Mexican food we have ever had! The seafood enchiladas were fantastic! Great salsa (not too hot) and incredible service! I will go back here every time I go to TC!

After arriving to Traverse City late in the evening (9:45 pm) hungry and tired from a long day of driving, we were pleased to find the Red Mesa Grill was open for dinner until 11:00 pm while many other area restaurants closed at 10:00. At that hour of the night, one might expect to be hurried along and given subpar service from a weary server. This was certainly not the case! Our server, Bert, couldn't have been more welcoming, attentive, and determined to give us a complete dining experience. The complimentary chips and salsa were tasty, our steak and chicken tacos were wonderful and reasonably priced ($5.99 for one taco with rice and beans, $12.99 for three), and the Red Mesa Margarita is among the best. Great food, great service, and a fun, festive atmosphere!
