This is the original restaurant on 4th St. Very good food and different than their downtown location. The foods a little heavier than the Cantina but possibly better. Excellent guacamole and fresh warm chips. Their pork on a cedar plank is my favorite but all...More

It is very good but this is not a quick stop and eat place. The atmosphere is very quante and the servers are polite and friendly. My wife and I have been going for years and it is very consistent quality.

This place was alright. The food was good but our server was terrible. She made very awkward comments and was not at all attentive.

I stopped in because it had awesome reviews and I wasn't disappointed! The bartender recommended a garlic shrimp dish that was amazing. Really enjoyed it and will be back!

My experience is Red Mesa offers a three course or so special for certain evenings, but only for certain periods of time. Give them a call at (727) 527-8728 & ask.
