Need I say more?! This was our second time to Red Mesa Grill and it was just as good as the first. Everything tastes fresh and the salsas are excellent.

Dinner was great at Red Mesa tonight as always. We love the chips & salsa. I had their tortilla soup for the first time and it was excellent, just the right amount of spicy!

Another place that needs a lot of attention! Mediocre food, some staff that could care less whether you eat there or not. Not my idea of a good eat.More

Enjoyed my first visit to the Red Mesa Grill! Our server was friendly, helpful with good suggestions after my questions and made sure to check back with water refills. The presentation of my Cobb Salad was amazing - and it tasted great!

Food was good but selection a little limited and the prices seemed on the high side. Excellent service. If you like tequila or margaritas this is your place.

This place is popular with locals and visiting skiers. So, it's a good value and a good meal. Everybody knows about this place in Boyne. It can be hard to get in. Absolutely need a reservation.

Ate there last night. Salsa was awesome!! Great taste and not too spicy so our kids enjoyed it as well! Cherry margarita was delicious. Ordered the pineapple quesadilla with chicken. Unique flavor and very tasty! Would definitely visit again! Our waitress Patti was great too!!
