...That's how it feels when we go over to Rojo. Walk inside, check the specials on the board to your right or grab a menu from the same area if it's your first time or you need a refresher. Head straight on up to the cashier, place your order, pay your tab and grab a number. Either grab a glass... More

Since we are visiting family not far from Rojo, we decided to get carry-out last night. I'm a big taco fan, the spicier the better. Rojo has ten different tacos on the menu and two are labeled "spicy". I ordered both the "Tomatilla" and the " Bandito" tacos. Having enjoyed Rojo's food before I knew they also have an habanero...

Had a pretty good dinner here during game 7 of the World Series 2016. Beers are excellent, chips and salsa are good also. I had the shrimp paella, which is spicy and good, but the sausage put me off a bit, more of a kilbasa rather than the smoked that I'm a custom too. The pork burrito looked good. I'd... More

I absolutely love tacos, all kinds. I happened to run upon this place on a quick day trip to Birmingham. The atmosphere was great. Selection of food unique. Service was wonderful. However, I need to talk about the tacos! I got a blackened maui maui with pineapple sauce that was extremely fresh. I also added their habenero puree, which is... More

Let me start off by saying the restaurant was very nice in appearance and location and the staff was great! The poor rating is because of the food. Maybe we caught them on a bad night. Everything lacked seasoning, specifically, the steaks, chicken tacos, the coleslaw, the chicken burrito, the Spanish rice and the beers were not ice cold. One... More

Most chain restaurants the quesadillas are flavorless pucks. This one was flavorful and just right for lunch. Not too much food, just right. People were friendly and fast.

We were happy to find Rojo on a Sunday night with few other options open which were not chain spots. They have an extensive menu from which we chose a few Mexican options. Not bad - freshly made but not much flavor. Chips were good.The atmosphere is very upbeat. Everyone seems to be having a great time with lots of... More

Have been eating lunch here for years and meals are always good and reasonably priced. Highly recommend Philly cheesesteak and castadeas. Fries are worth going for, hand cut. Non greasy and perfectly seasoned. h

Met a couple colleagues here for a late dinner. Parking was hard to find but I managed with several laps around the block. The place was busy which was a nice sign. You order your food and drink at the bar like a Irish or English pub and they will bring it out to you. The beer is cold and... More
