Red Mesa has been around forever and I know why. Everyone I know enjoys this consistently good lunch and dinner spot. Their meals are beautifully plated and a reasonable quantity. Our choices were all fresh and without the excessive salt and fat that some restaurants...More

When I hear southwest food I automatically think spicy. Keeping that thought in mind this place is really decent. There are a couple of items on the menu that are not overly spicy but generally the food is well seasoned which is not for me.

I don't get why this restaurant attracts such big crowds. I found the food to be fairly standard Mexican and the drinks to be over-priced. Service was okay. The patio was jammed, in part due to a pointless fountain in the middle of it. Restrooms...More

The restaurant is quaint and dim. The food was good. We ordered the shrimp empanadas as an appetizer. My husband liked his burger. I liked my chicken dish with fresh herbs.

Everyone thinks of a Mexican restaurant as tacos and enchiladas. We forget that Mexico has a lot of coastal areas. Red Mesa does the seafood as the Mexicans do. The salmon is to die for. Such flavors and aromas. It was tender and juicy.

Visited here twice and had a great experience both times. The food is fresh. The service is quick and as professional as you would expect for a fairly inexpensive meal. They offer a decent sized outdoor area that is enclosed away from the city street...More
