Locals seem to like it and it was recommended. We just had drinks. I am sure the food is good because it would not be recommended, but the atmosphere was just above average. If you go I would definitely eat outside.

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.
