“Rojo - the best thing to come out of Andiamo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

Andiamo has created Rojo Mexican Bistro and what a fine job they have done!
Apparently Rojo has become so successful that Andiamo is going to start opening them outside of Michigan.
Best enchiladas that I have ever eaten and even the Spanish rice is to die for!
Start off with as much chips and awesome fresh salsa as you can eat!
Great Fajitas too.
The new Clinton Township location is purpose built, large and spacious with great service.

“Awesome happy hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

The food is good - you won't be disappointed in any of the dishes. Even thought it's Mexican food - the elevated offerings are worthwhile. The chips and salsa are complimentary with good happy hour pricing of $3 beers, $4 well drinks and deep discounted wines. Just go - you'll be happy you did!

“clean and unique environment, food has authentic Mexican flavor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

As an authentic Mexican restaurant fan, I've never had much appreciation for Americanized Mexican cuisine, and have had few satisfying experiences with upscale Mexican restaurants. Rojos however, is refreshingly true to authentic Mexican flavor, and I recommend it to anyone willing to spend more than $7 an entree on Mexican food.

“Not worth the investment of money or time.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2011

Rojo took over where the Andiamo used to be and it is mediocre at best. The service was friendly but food was slow to come out. The food was okay but for the prices being charged I expect a lot more in terms of flavor and uniqueness. There are better and more reasonably priced places for good Mexican so why eat here?

“Awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2011

We just ate there for the 1st time tonight. We had great food & great service which made for a great night. Our servers' Steven & Nanette couldn't have been any better. They were both fantastic!

My husband did not want to go there since he was set on going to a different restaurant just down the street but I talked him into trying a new place. He is very picky & isn't big on change but by the end of dinner, he was already talking about what he wanted to try next time we go back. He had the fish tacos & I had the chicken fajita burrito which were both great. They also gave us the guacamole dip on the house since it was our first visit. They made it right at the table so it was as fresh as can be & very good. The chips & salsa that come with dinner were also great. Everything was perfect.

We will definitely be heading back there again soon.
