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.

We celebrated my 23 year old son’s birthday here, but we didn’t tell the staff. She carded him when he ordered a margarita, wished him a happy birthday (which was the day before) and offered him a shot of tequila or fried ice cream. So sweet and unexpected! We live the food at Rojo...BEST queso on the planet!!

We were the for a mid afternoon lunch. Business was slow. Noise was low. My fajita was good. My husbands taco were also good. It was 4 stars but not 5. Give it a try.

This place is great for grabbing dinner after shopping at West End or before a movie at the theatre across the street!

The happy hour is decent with small variety of drinks to choose from. Not a huge margarita fan but they have options for them. I order the 3 tacos plate- most servers will let you mix and match.

However tonight the server informed us that was not allowed. the side of rice was nice and sweet with the side of beans.
I also really appreciate that there is free, underground, heated parking very close!

The service was great and cocktails were great...but the food was subpar mediocre. The chips were too greasy and salsa too spicy...and no choices for a milder salsa. We ordered the enchiladas, and they were covered with so much sauce, you couldn't even see the enchiladas. And the overall flavor was again below average. Won't need to go back for a long time.

Delicious food! The service is wonderful and the whole experience is great! My only criticism is that the noise level inside is quite significant especially because the kitchen is open and the bar has a small decider from the main dining room!

Food was just ok, not anything I would go back for. They need a better ventilation in the kitchen. Our clothes smell when we left. Would not go back.

Great service. Flavorless food. Seriously, some salt even? We had chicken fajitas and chicken enchiladas. I’d be surprised if there was 1/4 of a breast on the fajita plate. Enchiladas looked amazing with a great broil on them, but again, no flavor. All bland. Oh well.

We had great service and the food was fantastic. The backroom lacked a bit of atmosphere but it was fine for our group. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered--my only complaint was the margarita. It just kind of tasted like something you'd have in college. It would be nice to have higher end cocktails available.

Our server was very flexible and accommodating for our special requests. I wish I would have caught his name so I could give him props here. But we only had a limited amount of time, so we spoke with him up front. He was very responsive, and made sure we were able to leave in time for our commitment. I only give the food a 4-star because I ordered the tacos with the corn tortillas, and the shell basically crumbled in my hands, making it a little awkward to eat. I'll try the flour tortillas next time. Overall, very satisfied, and really appreciate the quality service.

The hostess was carrying on a conversation with the bartender and didn’t acknowledge us right away. And our server was not very attentive and took an hour and a half for us. I had to find her to close out our bill.

The interior design and ambiance of this restaurant is awesome. We went in hopes of catching happy hour margaritas prior to dining, but the bar was super packed and they don't offer HH prices in the dining room.

The food was presented well, however, really lacked in flavor. Would like to see more of a spice level - had to use quite a bit of hot sauce to perk it up.

Margaritas served without salted rims? ok. It was ok.

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.

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.

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!
