We frequent this restaurant every time we're in town. The food is authentic and tastes wonderful. Currently, wouldn't visit this restaurant until after 5pm while the building next door is under construction, unless you want to sit inside. We had to move inside due to the extremely loud construction noise directly next door. It was so loud we couldn't hear... More

Even when we are staying in downtown St Pete for a getaway vacation, we will drive the 4 miles straight up 4th Street to eat at the original Red Mesa restaurant. Yes, Red Mesa has places right there in downtown St Pete, but finding parking can be a challenge. We drove up there this Saturday for lunch. We were not... More

The food really tasted fresh and great presentation. Portions were generous, waiter was super nice. Took great care of us and our furry friend! So nice to relax outside while enjoying a great meal. Drinks were well made, too!

Best Tex Mex in St Pete. A bit higher end as far as the food quality goes. Small wine list but what they do have is very good wines. Friendly staff! Food is beautifully done!

This is one fine restaurant! Food is always fresh, service is always great! Only wine and beer, but decent selections! Beware the chips and salsa, they're so great, you'll spoil your dinner!

Very good food with unique touches and unusual items. I have dined here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The staff is pleasant and usually the service is good. The interior is nothing special . . the food is why you go. It is a bit more expensive than others, but well worth it.

I and 2 friends enjoyed our visit. The Sunset Special was $16 per person and included chips and salsa. a glass of sangria and a choice of special entrees that also included a salad. This was a lot of food and very well prepared. The veggie enchiladas and the grouper were excellent!
