Perfect For:
  • Casual
  • Good for a Date
  • Quick Bite
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.

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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.
Very disappointing!!!

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.

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.

Service was very slow. Drinks were machine-made and way too strong - burned on the
way down, they were returned and after much ado, the bill was credited. Gluten-free
and dairy allergies were very poorly accommodated, no adjustments were made for
menu items that couldn't be served or eaten.

Great guacamole & chips! The food isn't "typical" Mexican... it's a more stylized version; not what I ate while living in Mexico. The rice is sweet... always surprises me, but I keep coming back!

We were at Rojo for an early dinner/happy hour. The lobster taco was the highlight. The quesadilla was standard and not worth having. The free Chips and salsa were good. The Margarita was too intense -too sweet and too heavy.

The server was great despite having a large number of tables. We had a nice time and I would certainly go back. It's an easy location to just sit back and relax for an hour or so while shopping at the west end or before or after the movie especially in the summer.

The patio seating was great on a lovely day. We especially enjoy the avocado egg rolls, tacos, and enchiladas with green sauce. I really appreciate that they substitute two servings of the sticky rice for the normal refried beans. Our server, Tiffany, was busy but dropped by to check on us several times. I recommend this restaurant in the West End complex.
