Stumbled upon this place on a balmy Wednesday night. Amazing atmosphere with large outdoor seating area and indoor area with luchador masks lining the walls. Food is great. Margaritas were tart and well balanced. Would be great for a birthday party or gathering with friends.

I love this place! The patio is beautiful and the staff is always nice! I love the Ahi and Shrimp Tacos. I've also had the Shrimp Ceviche, which was delicious. Last time my boyfriend had the Seafood Mofongo, also amazing! There's usually live music at night. This is one of my favorite spots in St. Pete!

Red Mesa is a regular stop of mine for the great service, consistency, and fair prices.

There's no better lunch value on Friday in St. Pete than Red Mesa. Their Arroz con Pollo is a massive plate of yellow rice, dark boneless chicken, and plantains.

The chips are always fresh, salsa is delicious, and the menu has something for everyone. I've gone to eat light with salads, fish, and ala carte tacos. I've also pigged out on giant burritos, Mofongo, and steak.

Biggest selection of Tequila in Tampa Bay too!!!

We ate here with our daughters and we all loved the place. Good location, great atmosphere and the waitress was very nice and efficient. My husband and I both had a Margaritha to drink and we had enough vegetarian choices. The food was basic but good and the price was really reasonable! Would definitely come again!
