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.

Downtown St Petersburg is full of seafood, oyster, and pub grub places to go. But what if you want good old chips and margaritas? Red Mesa is the answer. The food is not your basic Mexican - it features a fun twist on the tacos...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.
