Heard it on the Mexican radio that they had a special for $4.99 Burger deal. Liked the smell of the joint when I went in. I could smell the green chile and tortilla smell that almost made me buy a Mexican plate. lol

Was passing thru town on business and wanted a green chile cheeseburger. My go-to place is Julies, but they were closed for vacation :(. A local suggested I try Red Onion so I did. It's more than a little divey, but pretty clean. The server was friendly as well. The burger was decent but not FANTASTIC - however, for $5... More

Most of the men in our group found their meals to be OK. I had green chile enchiladas they were about average for the dish. The one outstanding meal that two of our group ordered was the Red Onion Green Chile cheeseburger. HUGE and extra good. Most of us wished we had ordered that.

The best breakfast burritos! Great portions, great flavour. It's a big open space and reminded me of some of my favourite places in Peru. Reasonable prices, too.

I liked the name of the place and I liked the interior - a full-on red that gave the inside an intriguing kick. But things went down from there. The chips were pretty good. However, the salsa was strong on the tomato and not much else. The chiles rellenos seemed microwaved, with the battered coating kind of soggy. There was... More

Me and my boyfriend stopped here for breakfast on our way to ruidoso. We had not heard anything about it and man were we blown away! Food was the best we've had in a long time, service was friendly, and prices were reasonable. The red onion is a hidden gem for the southwest

We love Red Onion and go at least three times a month. The prices are very good, love their chips and salsa (free with meal), the food is great (the chef knows what he's doing), and the service is very good. It's nothing fancy, but just good food, service and not expensive.

Nothing special here, pretty much like 90% of the other Roswell Mexican Restaurants. They've been around for quite a while though so they must have a good # of regulars. I wish Roswell would have at least one Mexican restaurant w/ food on par w/ just an avg restaurant in El Paso or San Antonio.

Thank blnewt
