This was our favorite place that we ate at in all of St. Pete. The service was great and everything we ate was delicious. You have to try the Duck enchiladas!

Me and my husband went to the one downtown last week and it was awesome. I raved about my taco salad all the way through dinner so when he asked me where I wanted to go for our anniversary I wanted to go back there. We figured we would try one of the other locations. Not only was the exact... More

Delicious!! I love unique flavors and quality food, and Red Mesa delivers! I got the Huevos Rancheros (with chorizo in the eggs). I added queso fresco, crema and a few slices of avocado and this is one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. We also got the drink that was half hot chocolate and half coffee....it was also fantastic!

The menu is an eclectic Latin fusion with great bursts of interesting flavor fusions. The atmosphere is welcoming and pleasant. The sangria is a refreshing flavorful must try.

NO MORE SUNSET MENU! One if the greatest things about this place is gone. It's still good Southwestern fare but it will be a bit shocking compared to what you may have enjoyed before. The shredded beef burrito was a favorite as well as the cedar plank salmon. Great presentations. Valet parking.

We had dinner at the Red Mesa Restaurant tonight and I must say the food was excellent. It's not your everyday Mexican menu but more like a Mexican fusion with some interesting taste combinations. All in all I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for something a little different and tastes wonderful. The only improvement would be... More

Great place to spend your evening. Start with salsa and chips with a pitcher of hibiscus/pomegranate margaritas. All of the dinners are excellent. Then you can go to the back and listen to the band and finish your pitcher of mararitas.

As a local resident we eat at Red Mesa frequently. The food is great. It's not your everyday Mexican food. Their sangria is good also. They have a sunset menu if you are seated by 545. It's a unique, popular place so get there early or plan to wait.

Four for lunch each with a different but delicious meal. I had the Favorito Combo which was a tasty sampling of some of their specialties.
