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.

Wonderful time with family, great food and service. Interesting of the 8 of us, we all ordered one of the taco meals off the menu. The only reason I rated noise level a 4 was due to being outside and guys with fancy, loud cars needed attention - must be the testosterone, not Rojo's fault!

We love Rojo. The presidente margaritas are the best. Love the poblano queso! Patio was a little dark( as the sun went down). Service was very friendly, but a tad slow.

The food must have sat under the heat lamp too long. I had chicken tacos, the chicken was very dry and the avocado on the chicken was brown. Server good. Table very lopsided.

We liked that there were ribs and hamburgers on the menu so we could invite a friend that doesn’t do Mexican.

They had absolutely no record of our reservation. Is this an issue with the tech side or incompetence on the hostess staff? I don't know. But we had to wait for 20 mins.

Service was outstanding; our server was very knowledgeable of the menu, and quick to help steer us in the right direction. I ordered the fajitas. They were underwhelming. Not a lot of flavor. I liked that they came with guacamole. Friendly host and very friendly, fast and well versed server. Just not blown away by any flavors.

The marqurita was very bitter and I had to return it. My friends tacos were soft and she could not pick them up to eat. I ordered a quesadilla and it was very salty and if there was any chicken in it, I could not find it! Sorry

First visit to this restaurant. Sat in booth and table height was awkward. We are not short people and felt like we were reaching up to the table to get to our meals. Table heights should be adjusted. Portions were generous including Margaritas! Food was fine but just wasn’t quite what we were expecting.

Was there for 3+ hours and our water glass was never refilled. Shrimp tacos weren't very good. Good ambiance sitting outside though!

While I enjoy the space and service is always above average I am generally underwhelmed by the food and drinks. My margarita was average and tasted of a kid even though I ordered the premium option. The chimi was decent but could have benefited from a more delicate hand with the sauce topping and more protein in the middle. Chips and sals are always a delight.

Just wasn’t overwhelmed with the food or the service... Ended up paying $30 for my meal and drink... probably worth $15.

OH and happy hour is only at the bar! Not normal seating, just so you all can adjust your expectations!

Ok food, but not many options for people that can only eat gluten free foods. Which is very strange considering we can eat so much at other Mexican restaurants.

Great food, drinks, and service however on Thurs, May 9th the kitchen had quite a bit of smoke coming from it after the dinner rush and it was fairly uncomfortable to sit in. After I left I realized my clothes smelled very badly and of smoke that I had to wash all clothing and shower given the smoke was so potent. Other than the smoke from the kitchen, it was a great experience.

Wait staff were excellent, but the food was mediocre at best. Soft shell ground beef tacos had little beef and too much lettuce, and were served cool (not warm, not cold, but cool).
Why did I have lunch there? I have dined at Rojo's many times, and most of the time everything is excellent. But, once in a while, it is mediocre.

The food was good - I had chicken tacos. I wasn’t a huge fan of the rice personally but the rest of the meal was excellent. I also had the fried ice cream, which was good. The service was great as well - the staff all seemed to help each other, which isn’t always the case. Overall a good experience and I will be back to try other menu items!
