We sampled many of the happy hour specials and enjoyed a beer and margarita! The quesadillas were wonderful, but the tacos were just as good. We love Red Mesa and wish they'd open one in Lafayette Indiana.

We always pop through here and grab take-out on our way into town before staying at Tamarack Lodge across the street. Last time we ordered a couple of things and discovered that their portion sizes were quite ample. Everything we had was great including the...More

We went on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant was crowded but not full, as it is quite large. We were greeted and seated promptly by the host with the comment "your server will be right with you". Sadly that did not happen. When...More

Their Margaritas are awesome! Really nice choice of Tequilas and they hand make their own mix. The food is good and the portions are medium. Great for families we have never really had to wait long for a table.

We come here every year for the margaritas. The food is good and I love the salsa. The patio is partially covered.

Nice place. Went there for dinner and the power went out in the entire restaurant. Sadly we only had a good drink and queso. Asked to leave as they could not make our order. Came back the next night and had a good meal.

Busy place during peak times but staff very friendly. We went once for just drinks and even though it was close to closing time, they accommodated us. Sour cherry margarita is a must. Returned for food during a busy time and service was still good.

We enjoyed Red Mesa. The food was very good and our waitress was very friendly. It was a little slow for being well after the dinner rush and how many people were at the restaurant. I would visit again.
