I would highly recommend the duck taco and their margaritas! The location is unique with an outdoor garden secluding you from the busy streets of downtown.

My only regret is I waited so long to try this place. There was four of us for dinner and we were all very happy. Food was delicious

Everything is always fresh and vibrantly flavored! Go with friends and sample as much as you can. From steak to shrimp specialties you can't go wrong.

Red Mesa was simply average. The same chips and guac (although very good) that you’d get anywhere. The atmosphere is great and the food was, well, average. The margaritas were simply awful. My wife, who loves Mexican food said, “average.” Florida has some major Latin...More

This restaurant has been open about 30 years and is still busy and it deserves it. I had the grouper and my date had a steak on skewers over yucca fries and both were excellent. Service was great and attentive without being intrusive. Good selection...More

My experience is Red Mesa offers a three course or so special for certain evenings, but only for certain periods of time. Give them a call at (727) 527-8728 & ask.
