We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Rojo for a number of reasons. There were plenty of options for vegetarians, the food was tasty and flavorful, and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The portions sizes were large and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant...More

There are lots of options - probably too many. Nothing is done with excellence. Not a bad option if you just want to sit outside and grab a quick bit. But, the few times we have been we regretted it.

I love this restaurant. The staff is always so nice and the food is consistently good. It's perfect for sunday night dinners and the outdoor patio is really nice.
