Friendly staff, great food. Not a Mexican restaurant; this is a Latin based menu. A must try is the smokey ranch which is awesome as a side dip or mixed with the salsa! Being near the cherry capital, their cherry margaritas are excellent! Muddled cherries with your choice of top shelf tequila.

Our family of one meatlover, two vegetarians and one vegan left very happy. All of our food was very good and the Margarita was excellent. There was a diverse menu with unique items in addition to typical Mexican fare. There was a separate menu compiling all the vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.

First waitress came by and said she would be right with us but did not come back for over five minutes. The ten plus dollar Margarita was served in a water glass and had to continually ask for more salsa and chips. Need to either bring out larger salsa bowls or make the salsa and chips accessible to customers so... More

They do a really good job at authentic Mexican food. They have a great selection for their menu. The wait staff was really friendly and service was fast. I would recommend anyone go to Boyne city, mi and give this place a try.

I have been to Red Mesa several times with family during our trips to the area throughout the years, even took friends here on a day trip. Food is always great and there are a lot of options that are Mexican style to make anyone happy. Staff always has been friendly and personable. The atmosphere is nice, with a bar... More

Had a great margarita, a Dos Equis & a tequila flight to go with the taquitos app. All were great & reasonably priced, but we had to scramble from our parking spot on the street so we werent part...

I love fish tacos but tried whitefish fajitas this time and they were wonderful. There was enough food for two, seasonings were perfect, Bloody Marys and margaritas were exceptional, waitstaff was efficient and fun. Our table also ordered steak specials, a dinner salad, and dessert, all of which were outstanding. Cannot wait to go back!

Stopped by for a snack after a volleyball match. The had $3 tacos. They told we couldn't get it to go. We waited a 1/2 hour before anyone put the order in. When we finally got the tacos, it was vey tasty. So the final, we loved the food but the service was questioned.
