We met some friends here for lunch on a Sunday. Their two small children were treated well and were kept busy with the goodies from their kids meal bag. The waitress was very helpful and patient with our lack of speed in choosing our meal. She continued to bring chips and salsa. Our drinks were always full. She even had the kitchen put our split order on two plates for us. The appetizer nachos are plenty for two people. And a very good combination of fresh flavors.

My husband and I randomly picked this restaurant after arriving in Traverse City. It was such a good find, we went back a few days later. First, the proprietors buy local to keep the ingredients fresh and secondly, they prepare most of it themselves including the squeezing limes for the margeritas! Finally, their take on Mexican food is very creative. I highly recommend the black bean twist and the pineapple chicken quesadilla.

My husband and I stopped at Red Mesa on a recent trip to Traverse City. We were highly impressed with the flavor and portions of the food. Our waitress was really nice and refilled our salsa 3x before our food came. Would recommend checking it out if your looking for some great food, and fast service!

On a recent vacation trip, we found ourselves in Traverse City. We hadn't eaten Mexican food yet this trip so we chose the Red Mesa Grill which was not far from our hotel. We arrived a little after 7:00 and while the place was busy, we did not have to wait for a table.

The food was good - but not much different from most other places featuring Mexican cuisine. tonight. A tostada for my wife and pork enchiladas for me, with the usual sides. We share fried ice cream for dessert. With tax and tip: $40.00.
