A nice treat in a city that is dying to become a 'foodie' town. The Red Mesa is worth the visit. We live in TC and this place seem to deliver on a regular basis. When it is busy, plan to wait, if not, plan to enjoy!

We use to live in TC 10 years ago, so we have friends still in town who tell us where the newest places are to go to when we get back for a visit. This one is a keeper. We arrived in time for Happy Hour and had wonderful service, in fact we moved from the bar to a bar table and the bartender was perfectly fine with it.... It was busy, but the noise level was still good for visiting. The Whitefish gets a two thumbs up from the hubby, who spent the first two days of our trip talking about the bad fish he had a Copper Falls (but that's for another review). We had a few of the appetizers and you can really get a feel for the Latin cooking. 5 stars is a lot in my book, but I can't find a good reason to only give 4!

My wife has great difficulty finding vegetarian options at restaurants. This restaurant has a vegetarian platter that blew her away. She said that vegetarian options are usually just meat dishes with the meat taken out or maybe substitute fish or tofu. She was so happy that this platter was made up of dishes that were designed to be meatless. Oh yeah, and it was DELICIOUS!

We stopped a Red Mesa Grill after reading other reviews and because it was near our hotel. The food was delicious and the ambiance was fun yet relaxing. We did not need to wait for a table and the waiter was right on top of everything. We definitely will go back.

It's rare for my family to agree on anything, so rave reviews for Red Mesa Grill count for a lot! The restaurant accommodated 30 of us with widely varied dietary needs, offering yummy choices all around. The ambiance is fun. Service was prompt and friendly. The managers I met, Tim and Troy, were both great. They managed to seat our group together, stored my Mom's birthday cake for the day, and presented it all aglow on cue. Thanks for a great celebration!
