Mexican
Rojo Mexican Grill serves new culinary creations and many traditional dishes, such as quesadillas, tacos and enchiladas, but with bold new flavors or in unique presentations. Ingredients, such as the tortillas, guacamole, and salsas, are made fresh from scratch each day. And Rojo uses special proprietary blends of Mexican spices to create the unique recipes. The stylish restaurant seats more than 280 guests and was designed to evoke traditional Mexican décor, but with a modern influence. Warm woods and soft red upholstery are offset by accents of leather, stone and steel. The dining room offers traditional table service and a generous view of the kitchen where diners can watch food prepared throughout the process. Three centrally located tables are dedicated to preparing hand-rolled tortillas, fresh guacamole and salsa in full view each day.

Our food was very good but the order came wrong and one in our party was almost done before our correct order came. Would have been nice if a msg acknowledged it.

Asked if goat or sheep cheese was in entree.... they assured me there was not... after I started having an allergic reaction ... they assured me again.... turns out it was the only kind of cheese they had in the burrito (I did ask since I hadn’t heard of the cheese before). I still had to pay for the drink and meal I couldn’t eat since I had to leave to get benydril...

This is usually one of my favorite restaurants meals. I always order the same entree, and this time was quite disappointed. The tortilla in my enchilada was burnt black on the side and part of the bottom. I showed this to the server. She acknowledged this, but did not mention it again. I hope this was an unusual occurrence, as I usually very much like the food here.
I usually give this restaurant 5 stars in all areas.

Nice patio, however it is right on the mall parking lot road so sometimes there is a noisy car going by. Good people watching. (Saw our neighbors walk by.) I love all of the tacos but especially the rice that is served. The guacamole is wonderful - no onions.

The queso is top notch. Also, do yourself a favor and ask for the tomatillo salsa. It’s got a kick, but it is so so yummy. If you are there without your kids, sit at the bar and let Jon the bartender concoct something special for you. He is knowledgeable about all the tequilas, and can suggest something that suits your palate. Yum!

The food was not very good. My enchiladas were caked in fried cheese (way too much) and the enchiladas were hard as a rock. The Cadillac margarita was not very good either. It wasn’t very strong and it was watered down.

I had the taco salad with carne asada. It was one of the best I have had. The ingredients we're well proportioned and flavorful. The one thing I added was guacamole because guacamole was not included in the salad to start. They have a side as well as appetizer. I did the side. As I got to the bottom of the bowl still had a good varity of ingredients. I will definitely return for this salad. The taco salad is also available with ground beef or chicken.

We loved the ambiance chips and salsa and the drinks were great, but unfortunately the food made me sick to my stomach. I ordered the Fish Tacos, shortly thereafter I had a bad reaction to the food. I don’t want to be too graphic but it was not a good end to the night and we could definitely trace the cause back to those tacos.

Loved the enchiladas, margaritas, and maybe most of all the chips and salsa. The Trio salsa, cheese, and guac were good too. However, I didn't really like the sweet rice that came with the meal. I wish it were regular Mexican rice, which is what I would expect with this type of meal. If you had that as an optional side, I would come back more often.

We were seated at a dirty table and had to ask three people to clean it...that took 10 minutes...then when the wiped it down we had old food in our laps. Walked by two clean tables to get to that one though. The only reason we had silverware is we took it from a clean empty table. Our server was nice. Food was average.

Rojo is one of our go-to date restaurants. The food is really great every time we go! I usually get the Carne Asada Tacos with the (AMAZING) Sweet Rice and a side of the Cotija Corn. My fiancé usually gets a Beef Burrito. The Roasted Poblano Queso is SO good. Awesome margaritas! Touch-and-go salsa, but I think they make it fresh each day, so it depends on the day. They also have amazing salads! We love Rojo!

Service was great. Made a reservation online, walked in and was given table immediately (and it was busy). Waiter was great. Chips and salsa were good. We prefer food at other Mexican restaurants better. I didn’t particularly like the sauce on enchiladas/burritos. Rice is different but tasted good. Drinks are $.

Food was tasty. We had a side of guacamole which needed more punch. But the fresh salsa was very nice and a nice kick of heat. I had the carnitas tacos which was very tasty especially if topped with some of the fresh salsa. The sweet rice was unique and I liked it. Refried beans were a little salty. My companion had the chicken enchiladas, which he enjoyed. Predictable and reliable.

The doors that lead from the mall entrance can let in a very large draft! Staff members were not paying attention to the fact that sometimes the restaurant doors were not closing and they would let in big blast of cold air. Guests had to get up a couple of times and shut the doors to prevent the frigid cold air from coming into the restaurant.

Our first visit and glad we "discovered" Rojo. Mexican food was outstanding. We had the beef enchiladas and steak tacos. Loved the creamy rice and corn side dish. Portions are large, took a lot home. What we didn't like was the music level. It's a large place and despite being crowded the crowd wasn't that noisy but the sound track was excessive. We'll give it another try on a weeknight to see if they turn it down for other than Saturday nights.
