Stopped in on New Years Day and had lunch. Food was great but the Sangria was nothing special and I would've liked a better drink. But would definitely go back.

Very tasty Mexican, with the choice of eating outside or under the overhang by the bar. Reasonably priced

Mediocre. Garden setting is beautiful. But unless something changes with the menu and the quality of the food, we probably won't return. It's ashame. If this place had an exceptional menu and chef, propelled would be lined up waiting to get in.

Red Mesa is the perfect spot for any gathering. You have a preference of indoor or outdoor seating, which both are quite nice but the outdoor patio is my personal favorite. I've had the beef and chicken tacos, cilantro rice, chips and salsa, seafood dip...More

The food our busy visit was excellent and very creative. We have never had (or even heard of) tofu tacos or duck tacos before, but the Red Mesa has created both of them tastily encased in soft corn tortillas, and they were melt-in-your-mouth fares! Think...More

I have to say that I somehow expected more.... Maybe it was because we were there on a busy Saturday night. Maybe we didn't get the best service that time would allow. Maybe we found the Southwest Grouper to be overpriced... The palomilla steak was...More

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.
