Rojo Mexican Grill - St. Louis Park
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.

My go to Mexican between the city and the lakes. Love the enchiladas and the outdoor seating.
The server who was assigned to us rarely checked on us and I had to go look for her to get the check so we could get back to the office. When I went up to the bar she was right on the other side and never looked up toward the front... other staff were around as well and not one acknowledged me to help.
Great staff and food only downfall was no Happy Hour outside of the bar area that was a little loud.
Great server! Great food!
Temperature not hot for Foods that should be hot. Quality of cheese low. Waste of plastics (straws) — suggestion for management to get on board with reducing landfill waste.
I was very disappointed. Brought good friends to have dinner. Host was rude. Server was on her first day, and had no supervision, and was VERY non responsive. I go there for lunch alot and thought this would be an easy dinner out. Wont do that again.
This Rojo location has a great patio! The food was delicious and the margaritas were outstanding.
The food was ok-nothing extra special
Service was amazing, as normal. So was the food!
While I have greatly enjoyed Rojo on past occasions this was not the same experience. It was right at opening and the service was still rest but the food was less than expected. The chips tasted stale and my margarita had an off flavor. Side bar was also that floors throughout the restaurant were extremely slippery. I noticed they attempted to put down rugs where they could.
Food was great and our waitress was terrific given the volume of customers she was serving. We were seated at a table outdoors right next to a door that was being accessed by employees to run orders, food, etc. We had not experienced any problems with this until one of the employees kicked the door open hard and it swung out surprising is. It did not hit my friend but the guy gave us s dirty look. Another guy who was assisting him looked at us and said “you are fine.” As the seemingly annoyed guy approached the door again to go back inside he looked at our table shaking his head in disapproval. Based on this experience with this employee, I will not be returning to this location of Rojo. I would recommend he take up concerns about where the tables and chairs are located to his manager. I also ordered a meal to take with me for my husband. It was supposed to come with tortillas. Got home and the first thing he asked me was “Where are the tortillas?” There weren’t any in the sack.
Very good food. Had to ask for chips couple of times and water as well.
Server Terri is wonderful
Enjoyed quality Mexican food at Rojo. Tried the nacho fries - wasn’t impressed. They were greasy and drenched in queso. The bartender said they had too much queso on them and apologized. Otherwise, the Chips, salsa, fajitas, and bartender service were all great. Great Mexican food!
My husband I ate here for dinner before seeing a movie across the street. Our server Sasha was very friendly and timed our service perfectly so that were able to get to our movie on time. The food and margaritas were delicious. We will definitely be eating at Rojo again.
Food was gross, service mediocre.
Absolutley would recommend Rojo! It was my first time and I loved it❤️ Check it out
I've walked past Rojo Mexican Grill many times, but I never ate there prior to this lunch meeting. So I figured it was about time I checked it out. While I was not blown away by the food, service or decor, I have to say Rojo proved to be a good, solid lunch spot. I had a small chop salad and a chicken burrito with rice and refried beans and everything was very good. Our server was very good, if not extraordinary or very memorable. I'd have to say the same about the decor. All that being said, I will consider going back to Rojo the next time I have a meeting in the West End area of Minneapolis.
Have eaten here many times. This last time, we arrived during happy hour. The manager refused our table happy hour prices because we were not seated in the bar. We had table reserved, but even so, the bar was full. On other visits, we have been given happy hour prices. Disappointing!
Where’s my points?
Best Guacamole! I love their chips and salsa. I got grilled chicken tacos this time and they were awesome!
I never know quite what to expect at Rojo. One time the food can be great; next time just mediocre. Service is professional.
An odd observation on this visit: We went at 5pm on a Friday, which seems to be a little before their dinner rush. The dining room was fairly empty, and it seemed really odd to be forced to watch all of the prep activity going on for the evening. Women doing condiment prep; the shift change occuring (people coming and going, putting on coats, greeting/saying good-bye); The main line being stocked w/ dishes, condiment containers being filled.
I guess I don't think watching the inner workings of a restaurant are necessarily very appetizing.
The chicken enchiladas, chips, salsa, and guacamole was amazing! I also enjoyed the strawberry, jalapeño margarita. The only downside was it was a bit crowded and left little room to easily walk between tables. We will definitely be back!!
Great meal. Food is fantastic. Good for a casual business lunch. Ambience is lively and upbeat
Excellent lobster tacos!
Chip and salsa were good. We ordered lobster tacos they were cold and very tasteless. Very disappointed this was my Valentine's dinner. Can not say how disappointed I was.
Delicious and great service! Our only complaint was that it was cold in the restaurant. 90% of guests still had their jackets on! Will return!
Service great, nice ambience
Food so so, avoid the rice & beans that come with the meal, no taste/flavor, appearance of baby food....
Rojo has been a consistently favorite place for us to eat out. It lacks the atmosphere of a hand-holding date night kind of place, unless you are going to a basketball or other game kind of entertainment. Also great for just getting out for a meal for a change. A neighborhood bar with good food, where childless, with kids, young or old, you can be confident of a good meal, friendly and efficient service in a clean and well-maintained place.
Very forgettable food. No flour tortillas at a Mexican restaurant! No burrritos? Very pricey sandwiches with no flavor. Service good. Free chips are good. The rest - no, sorry.
Delicious food, warm ambiance, not too loud. Great margaritas. Closest to authentic Mexican food that I've had in the US!
Happy hour margaritas were good. There chips and salsa are always delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly !
Good service. We always enjoy the food at Rojo - good flavors, priced right.
We were very disappointed.
We had reservations for 5:30 and was planing to order from the happy hour menu.
The bar was full so we were set in the main restaurant and were not allowed to order from the HH menu.
If we knew that ahead of time we would have gone to a different restaurant.
Great food, delicious (and strong!) cocktails. I recommend the strawberry margarita. One is enough;) when I was there on New Years the restaurant was absolutely FREEZING. Felt like doors were open and drafts everywhere. Love their outdoor seating in the summer.
Slow service even though it didnt appear to be very busy. Also were seated close to the front door on a very cold NYE night. Couldnt take my jacket off in order to stay warm.
Very delicious Mexican food with tons of choices. Also the free chips/salsa are yummy!
The food felt slightly overpriced for size of the portions. The quality was decent but nothing special.
Most inportantly, my girlfriend and I both ended up with tender stomachs and going to the bathroom a lot for the next couple days after we ate here.
The margaritas were good but we won't be eating anything but the chips and salsa in the future.
This restaurant has fairly good food, nothing special. The atmosphere is nice but noisy. Our server was very good, but the food is delivered by other staff. When our guacamole arrived, the bowl was literally dropped on the table from behind my husband's shoulder. Really...dropped right in front of him and just keep walking. I mentioned this to our server and she comped our guacamole and dessert. This restaurant wasn't really good, and certainly wasn't bad. Not somewhere I would look forward to going to again.
Very cold climate in bar area. Should inquire about taco salad and warm meat when ordering. Server good.
