Our first visit to a Blue Mesa was the Addison location back in the 1980s. Somehow, although the Southwestern cuisine phase has peaked, Blue Mesa remains relevant. It starts with those addictive sweet potato chips and salsas and that the lovely Painted Dessert Soup. I could just end here, with a blue margarita on the side, but a blue corn... More

About 30 of us had a buffet in a private room. The chips, guacamole and salsa were very good-especially the guacamole. Dinner had a selection of about 6 items which were varied and enjoyed by all. Great Margaritas.

Wow! Very very good buffet. Chicken enchiladas and tamales were outstanding. I had no room for the waffles, but others at the table raved about the pancakes. There was also a type of dessert table with cinnamon rolls and pecan bars. Top that off with endless mimosas and you walk out fat and happy. I highly recommend!

Chips were stale at 11:30 am in the morning. Atmosphere was chaotic. Service was tense. Will not go back.

Overall I find their food not that interesting, but the Wednesday buffet for lunch is awesome, fajita bar with fresh tortillas among a lot of other things. Not light, but delicious.

We visited last Sunday afternoon. It seems like the place has turned into a Mexican Buffet kind of thing. They were marketing it as a "Sunday Brunch" for $22. The two young hostesses at the entrance seemed a little surprised that we didn't want that. We just wanted a regular meal from the menu. So they went to seat us,... More

Blue Mesa sports some typical Tex Mex, but that is really not their gig...you will love their spin on everything. They are known for sweet potato chips mixed in with blue and yellow corn chips... One house specialty is guacamole made table side...don't miss it!

We arrived to no host/hostess on our first visit. It was really awkward as we walked into the bar area and nobody greeted us or acknowledged us so we just sat down at a table that was dirty. The waitress was indifferent and not willing to share information. I finally had to tell her that this was our first (and... More

Blues Mesa has a nice mix of southwest and mexican cuisine. The flavors are fresh and different from your typical Tex-Mex place. Everything is fresh and has great flavor.
