Was told by several people how great this place was, well I beg to differ. The food quality was poor and over priced.

The tacos lived up to the hype! Came here for lunch on a muggy Saturday. Despite this, outside was packed. So we ate inside which wasn't awful. The whole place has a really cool vibe.

Started with the octopus ceviche. Super tender, nicely spiced. This was delicious. For our lunch We went with the tacos. I had to try the duck and the shrimp. I liked the duck,it was good but the shrimp was excellent! My husband had the fish, ahi tuna and the pork. He said the ahi was outstanding! Pork was excellent and while the fish was good, it was his least favorite.

Definitely will go back here. Especially for the seafood tacos!

We had flown down from Long Island and were starving. It was almost 9pm by the time we got to Red Mesa. The outdoor garden area was great. Since it was Wednesday I got the fajita special. Steak fajitas for $15! There was a drink special too — half off all mixed drinks. I got three cucumber cocktails. I was feeling great! So great that I managed to lose my credit card :/.
