Red Mesa Cantina Review

Went to St. Petersburg, Fl for a mini vacation with Collin and decided to come to this place for dinner. I had seen some really good reviews on this place through trip adviser, which bragged that this was the best Mexican restaurant in the area!
We ordered the special guacamole which was just the processed guacamole dip they sell in stores with sliced jalapenos and bacon on time. Lets just say I was not impressed. I hate when they serve this guacamole dip at restaurants. It definitely does not scream fresh to me even if you do try to spruce it up with some bacon and sliced jalapenos. I guess bacon does not make everything better!

I ordered this grapefruit margarita which was a special for the day and it was really done well. Props to the bartender this was one of the best margaritas I've ever had!

We also ordered the Ceviche Huachinango which had red snapper, red onions, cilantro, lime juice, and spicy Peruvian Aji Amarillo. This was pretty spicy but i could not stop eating it, it was sooooo good!

Collin ordered his favorite..... The Biggest steak burrito on the menu! But unfortunately it fell short. The presentation was nice but on the inside they stuffed it with mostly rice and beans that really had no flavor, and skimped on the steak almost entirely. Needless to say neither of us where impressed.

Lastly I ordered the Duck tacos. Honestly they had some good flavors but nothing too memorable. Once again I like the presentation but I guess I was expecting more from the best Tex Mex restaurant in the area.

Would I come back? I might give them another chance if there is nothing else catching my eye, but I am pretty disappointed with my first visit.
