REVIEWS OF Rojo IN Alabama

Tommy Townsend

Rojo is the best Mexican restaurant I've seen in the 205! Reasonably priced, and delicious. Every salsa and sauce is house made and tastes like they prepared it that morning. They have something great at all heat levels. If you like heat, definitely try the green habenero salsa

Jeff Biestek

Great spot, cozy vibes. I really enjoyed my steak burrito.

Seth Miller

Fun and tasty food

Steve Holliday

Nice menu, good food nice seating inside and out. I recommend this place for food and drinks

Debra Rodzinak

Our home away from home. Luckily, we live close enough to walk over. We eat here about once a week and the food as always been fresh, hot, and yummy! We love Rojo and consider it our "go to" place when we don't feel like cooking. Great salads and fajitas. Try their chips and fresh salsa.

Danielle G.

Blackened Tilapia salad was very good and fresh. Nice outside seating. Prices are meh.. I would've enjoyed it better if a very loud obnoxious group had not been seated across from us. They spouted all kinds of hate and political non-sense the whole time.

Candace Herron

I absolutely love their tacos! Great place to grab a beer and a quick bite to eat. Nice, laid back atmosphere. I will definitely be going back in the future.

Chase Ogden

Really neat place! Eclectic and tasty menu. We ordered paella (Mexican flavored jambalaya) and a big burger with margaritas. Staff were super friendly, necessary since it is a free for all getting a table and ordering food, though it settles down once you are settled.

Kristen Wardell

Rojo is a great place to eat with reasonable prices. The cheese dip that came with the tortilla chips was the best cheese dip I have ever eaten.

Chad Price

1st of all I'm a meat guy But I had to try the beyond Burger just to see and it was actually really really good will definitely get again

LaShanna R. Tripp

Very kind welcome, great food and atmosphere for our first visit on Mother’s Day!! Can’t wait to go back!!

The Autari

The workers acted like they didnt want to serve me, and other patrons were rude. Racism sucks. Do better.

Joe Watts

Great local place that has a community feel. Good tacos, good chicken sandwiches. Friendly folks and reasonably priced.

James Heath

This is a nice place to eat. The menu consists of burritos, tacos and other similar foods, but also includes things like burgers and other sandwiches. There are some tables inside but they have a bunch of outdoor seating as well. There are lots of trees around the building and lining the streets so it stays pretty cool outside even on a warm day. I stopped there around 11am for lunch with a coworker so it wasn't super busy and the food came out surprisingly quick. Good vibe and good food. It is far enough away from downtown that you dont get all of the vehicle and foot traffic but still close enough for a lunch stop while working downtown. I will definitely be eating here again.

Laura McKenzie

I dined with friends on the shady, pleasant patio. Service was friendly and helpful and I loved the many choices on the menu. One friend needed a custom sandwich due to allergies and the server was glad to help. He went out of his way to be helpful! I love that Rojo supports local charities. ( I am a watershed conservation enthusiast especially.) Food was good. I needed to trade my slaw with my friend because I hate cilantro but her salad with the house dressing was wonderful! (Some of us have a gene that makes cilantro taste like soap and worse. Letting us know cilantro is in a dish is a kindess.)

Avonlea hartmann

Nice staff. Great food At home atmosphere

angelo tinker

great food and friendly staff!

Ted Porter

Fun outdoors where our lil dog could join us!

Elizabeth Douglas

I was really impressed with Rojo. I had a business get together here and was hoping my out of town vendor would enjoy the food. The atmosphere was lively and the food was excellent and generously portioned. It was also the first time I’d eaten there, so I was putting a lot of trust in the online reputation, and I see it is well-earned. The Southwest quesadilla was delicious and so was the queso. I’ll be back for sure! There were several items on the expansive menu I definitely want to try. If you’re looking for great Latin inspired or American-style cuisine, Rojo won’t disappoint!

Great spot to eat.

Lee Robinson

Excellent atmosphere, cuisine and service.

jim taylor

The most dog friendly restaurant in town. Unequaled neighborhood ambience in the heart of Highland Park. Okay food. Can't go wrong with burger or wings. Salads also good. Good bar. Great place to meet friends after work or on weekends. Also a good place to see and be seen while enjoying a cold brew.

Clint Griswold

Food was alright, the area is very nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Candice Murdock

Food is really great they have something for everyone with half the menu Latin food, the other American. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well. If you go in spring or summer you can enjoy the best porch in Birmingham. Everyone is super friendly here.

Kristen Berry

Love the food and laid-back atmosphere

Arnarda

This was a great experience

Bryant Gilmer

Great food and drinks, nice people. Kitchen in plain view, clean and fast.

Royce Bridges

Ordering food is a complete cluster if you've never been here before. Rude bartender, mediocre, at best food.

Ronald White

Good place to chill with friends. Cozy convenient and great place to eat and drink. Staff are all friendly and helpful and polite.

Judi Adamson

Love this place! Food and atmosphere are amazing!

Xabier Granja

Excellent food, nice staff, great prices. This was a thoroughly enjoyable lunch, can't wait to come here again. The burrito bowl with shrimp was delicious! Perfect flavor combinations.

S Smith

They got rid of the impossible burger wth

Brian Geiger

Rojo offers Latin and American style menus. Casual brunch or lunch dining. We previously catered a family event and found servers to be friendly and food prepared as promised.

James Fields

It can get a lil crowded early in the night and it's loud but it's a chill type of vibe there. The food was good. Will go back there again to try more of the different tacos.

Ali Reynolds

Hipster hangout. This is the only place that I can get a decent blackbean burger.

Brandon Gibbs

Great bar fusion food. Keep in mind that this is essentially a bar...with much better food than most. If you're not ordering the Totochos, you're not doing it right. Mix of 'Mexican' style foods and a some Americana as well. A TON of VEGETARIAN options as well! The tofu sausage is SO delicious and will fool almost any meat eater. The house salad is the best deal, as it is cheap...and HUGE! Add that tofu sausage, and BAM! Prices are ok. Service can be spotty, but they are always BUSY! Counter order, take a number kinda setup. Don't expect your apps to come before your food. They will bring it as it's ready. So, if you order the Totochos, as you should, your burrito or salad, maybe even burger just might come out first or at the same time...which leaves you with no table room. But knowing that, and not being a person that kinda thing bothers...this place is a GEM!

Nikolai Krestinsky

Awesome service...I even lost my cell phone out in the parking lot and it was returned to me... PRICELESS!

Terry Alldredge

Excellent food with quaint, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend the bandito salsa!

George Torres

Sadly... Not what we expected. This place could be great... Food is BLAH no taste. We didn't finished our food. We left half way through our plates.

Blake Habshey

Great food. Neighborhood hang out and generally cool little shop.

Amanda Jo Wright

Great food, great outside patio, and dog friendly. What more could you want? Rojo is a bham staple!

Brice Jackson

Rojo is a wonderful break away spot in the middle of the workday! Wonderful food. Convenient location. I just sat outside in the shade on a hot day and enjoyed some wonderful food! I will be back soon!

Carin Atkins

The food was absolutely amazing...the closest thing to Mexico in the city of Birmingham.

Brandon Black

Been going to Rojo since they opened back in 2002 and I lived in the apts above them. I have always liked the atmosphere and food.

Good food good prices

Kelly Fuller

Always good. Great skinny margarita!

Matina L. Poole

One of my favorite places in birmingham..babeswhobrunch(awesome) food's great

Alex Vasquez

Mexican food a Mexican and Californian can love. It gets rather busy here and they don't take reservations. High quality food and margaritas.

zach smithson

Delicious and pretty cheap for how much good food you get

Jake Alexander

Always great food and great environment. Fish Taco's are my go to here. I haven't found anyone around who comes close. I love the location in the heart of the highland parks. Very dog friendly which is perfect

J Parker

Has the Best Mahi Mahi tacos

Ramses Herrera Habsburg

Nice Tex/Mex styles food and a very relaxed atmosphere. Definitely one of the spots to see if you are ever seen n The ‘Ham.

Hughston Davis

Loud and busy, but great food. If you like something really spicy this place has your fix.

Diomar Arruda

Great restaurant. People always happy to see us! Very nice atmosphere

Landon Whatley

Yummy! Quick and casual. They have so many choices and it was all good.

Randy Latner

The mahi mahi tacos were exceptional as always. I do recommend the guacamole and chips as an appetizer. They have outside seating that's enclosed and covered during the winter months and the walls are removed during summer months.

Lizzy Dee

Great to eat in or the patio. Bring your dogs!

Julia Thomason

My family went to Rojo on a Sunday. I ordered from the brunch menu and got the egg, potato & peppers burrito. It was just okay. I know it is a cool, hipster kind of place, but honestly it was a one and done for me. Unless you live close by, parking is very minimal. You order at the counter, just like Moe's (which I would prefer) and then try to find a seat. We had to sit in a room next door to the main dining area. My husband and I both thought that the food was very mediocre and not worth trying to find parking spot to get something equal to or less then Moe's.

Scott Owen

My friend bought take out and it was delicious. Red Chili Pork Burrito (Rated R). Easy pickup. Food was ready fast. R = Mild-Spicy

isaac medina

So far the few times I've been its has been pretty good the chicken tacos were kinda dry

Evan Nahmias

Uh, this place is legit. After choosing between Sweet Tea or Cruel Tea, one might decide between tots or tortilla chips. Choosing between thoughtful Mexican dishes or (almost) pub grub was a hard choice as all the plates passed while walking to the counter to order looked good. Food was great. Neighborhood vibe was welcoming.

Monica Steele

Great food and friendly staff

Sandi Mbanefo

Soooooo tasty!

Kaitlin Slattery

The time to visit is the early evening when there is a slight bit of dusky light peaking through the trees and the red glow from the neon sign beckons you forward. Everything I have had here has been good but my constant favorite is the black bean burger with a margarita on the rocks ✨ only negative is parking is ALWAYs difficult but if you live in the neighborhood it’s a perfect walkable location.

Robert Taylor

Great food, lovely outdoor seating area, and dog friendly! Buddy and I randomly decided to drive to Birmingham from Atlanta. It is set up so you order, they give you a number, and then they bring the food to you. Drinks you have to go in and order every time. If you don’t mind that then this is the perfect place. Love the unique setting that they have inside and out. Made me feel at home as someone living in Atlanta’s Little Five Points

Cleve McDaniel

Love this place. Nothing fancy, but great food and solid beer selection. Patio seating is where everyone wants to be, but the inside is also nice. The Fried Fish Tacos are the best I've had in town.

William Bruton

Parking is tough but it is worth the walk. Place is usually packed which is a good sign if you ask me. Good service, great fish tacos, overall typically great experience.

Paul Cammarata

Fantastic as always. Great food, awesome service. Sit outside and enjoy the neighborhood view.

Delicious place to eat!!! Has the greatest atmosphere. We eat here every time we visit Birmingham!!

Ms.Nina M. Miller

Love Rojo! Food is always great as is the service.

Shawanna Thompson

The service was good. The food not so much. I got two Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos. I ate one and tossed the other. The fish appeared to be seasoned, but didn't taste like it. I didn't like the white at all. The service was good, but I didn't enjoy the food.

Terry Scott McAnnally

Good food and atmosphere

Taylor Stephens

This is a favorite place of mine. They have a large menu selection, a really neat environment (love the patio), and it's pet friendly. This is half Mexican half American type food and it's all high quality. Taco's are superb. The appetizers are delicious. This is a order-up-front place and take a seat. Drinks are served here.

Trevor Baker

Always great food and good service

Mere M

Tasty food!

frepa1estine .

Rojo’s fried fish tacos are my favorite non traditional taco in Birmingham.

Victoria P

I will keep coming back to Rojo because their food is just so delicious!

Jodie Hendrixx

Great atmosphere good drinks great atmosphere

Robin Rheuby

Great food and atmosphere!

y.m. tenorio

It's not clear what to do if you are a first time visitor. No one explained how to order etc. The bartender was a bit rude and the food was about average. I doubt I'd return but it does seem to be popular.

Austin Haikes

Great Mexican in Birmingham. Great atmosphere too.

Wes Precise

Great stuff here

Tyler Daniel Dalzell

great selection of both Mexican and american food, and nice outdoor seating

Rob Piosik

Great for a casual Mexican diner

Claire Elise Stephens

"These are actually pretty good." - A ringing endorsement of the nacho bar from my dad at a private party in the side room

Julia Nelson

One of my favorite places to go in Birmingham. Rojo has an edgy vibe with rock ’n’ roll style. I’m never disappointed by the delicious food & beverages or the funky atmosphere. Great brunch, an eclectic choice of events, and a reservable side room for parties and celebrations.

April Jones

Never a disappointment! Worth it every time

Paul Neville

The BBQ salad with hot ranch was excellent. Atmosphere and service great also.

michael lane

Food was great and was served fast

Kristen Bobo

Fantastic food and fun atmosphere. We came for the famous brunch specials on Sunday and it absolutely did not disappoint. The food was fresh and flavorful without being overwhelming, and the guacamole was so good it might be my new favorite. I had the sangria which was really good, but my friend had the mimosa and I definitely recommend that more. Best I've ever had.

Darrin Djernes

Food was ok. Service was quick and the place was quite packed. The girl that took our order was not very friendly.

John Chamberlain

Great service, great speed, great food, great atmosphere. Hasn't changed in years. What more is there to ask for? Even the prices are good!

Lauren Allen

Rojo is a Birmingham staple. They have extraordinary variety and almost every meal can be turned vegetarian. Always get the totchos!

Sid Wing

Quaint place, decent food. Get there early as it tends to be crowded.

Pure Bliss

I've never had Mexican food that wasn't seasoned. Didn't think that was possible. Somehow, everything I ordered needed salt/seasoning...Including the queso. How does that happen? I gave it a 2 because the environment is cool and the staff was nice. But I won't go back for food unless I'm there having drinks. By the time I get drunk, it won't matter what the food tastes like.

Philip Candler

Good food and location

Olivia Hart

Lovely spot in Highlands. Great vibe, lovely staff and delicious hearty food. Weekend brunch served until 3 so grab a beer and relax :)

Gregg Janowski

Very interesting menu, including many vegetarian items and local beers.

John Stringer

UPDATED: OK. So sorry. My original review below was mistaken. I got mixed up as I met my wife and son here but didn't order (I got the breakfast from a different place and thought it was here). My wife and son had buffalo wings and chicken fingers. I actually didn't like the buffalo wings but the chicken fingers were decent. Best thing I had was the wonderful drinks from the bar! My original review: Had a wonderful breakfast here. I ordered one of the bowls with scrambled eggs and it was awesome. Portions are plentiful, too!

Susan Glasscock

Great food and atmosphere.

Gerica Cammack

I had a cup of chili it wasn't my favorite can't wait to go back and try something different. Rojo is still a great place

Reauchann Richardson

Black bean burger is awesome

Kamela S. Spivey

Great food, great ambiance! Loved this place for lunch for myself, my son & his Dad. Had a tasty margarita & we enjoyed looking at the musical acts posters. The staff was friendly & helpful & the place was clean.

David Batchelor

Got the fried fish tacos on corn totillas, Great!

Jeremy P

Always a favorite! Try the Rojo Burrito.

april williams

Wonderful food and great drinks.

Robyn Buckner

Best thing about Rojo is the convenience. Food is alright, service is okay, prices are meh.

Michael Gerrits

Eclectic restaurant w Latin and American food, such a neat place to go to. Was our first time visiting and it was great! We had Mexican but the menu was huge w so many different options. Highly recommend Rojo!

Fred Hopson

Really enjoyed this place. It was my last place to have a drink in Birmingham, very enjoyable. The food there was exactly what I was looking for.

Jason Dewald

I'm a very laid back individual, this was the first time I have just walked out of a restaurant. The off duty staff was completely wasted, combative, and would not leave us alone. Politely suggesting they should go home, only stoked the fire. It got worse. Our best option was to get up and leave. So we did. I will never go back to this place again.. Shame...

Rex McDonald

Decently priced food, attentive and helpful staff in the heart of South Side. Side bar with live music, sports events and trivia are great crowd plus patio for good weather. A little cramped in the space, but the food is good. Plentiful selection of adult beverages and soft drinks make it a great place to go any night of the week. Fast service gets your food to you and it's as you ordered it the greatest part of the time.

Julia Juarez

Kinda hipster with Latin splashes. Always willing to help out a cause or non-profit.

Angelo V

I saw Rojo featured in Birmingham Magazine and had to give it a shot. I love tacos and living in Texas for most of my life I am a taco aficionado, if there is such a thing. Rojo did not disappoint. They have a lot of options on the menu that it's hard to choose. No matter what you decide on, it's going to be good. Ordering is done via walkup counter and then finding a seat. The tables were close together but in a quaint, we're all friends here kind of way. There is a lovely patio and unique works of art adorn the walls. Food is quick, staff is friendly, I really enjoyed my visit to Rojo and it comes recommended.

Brooklynn Overton

You look at a menu and order up at a counter. Food was super delicious but hate that you pay for salsa and chips. Not super expensive but not for large groups either. Food was delicious

Ronald Hudson

I had the sangria which was really good, but my friend had the mimosa and I definitely recommend that more. Best I've ever had.

Darrin Djernes

Food was ok. Service was quick and the place was quite packed. The girl that took our order was not very friendly.

Lauren Allen

Rojo is a Birmingham staple. They have extraordinary variety and almost every meal can be turned vegetarian. Always get the totchos!

Sid Wing

Quaint place, decent food. Get there early as it tends to be crowded.

Pure Bliss

I've never had Mexican food that wasn't seasoned. Didn't think that was possible. Somehow, everything I ordered needed salt/seasoning...Including the queso. How does that happen? I gave it a 2 because the environment is cool and the staff was nice. But I won't go back for food unless I'm there having drinks. By the time I get drunk, it won't matter what the food tastes like.

Philip Candler

Good food and location

Olivia Hart

Lovely spot in Highlands. Great vibe, lovely staff and delicious hearty food. Weekend brunch served until 3 so grab a beer and relax :)

Gregg Janowski

Very interesting menu, including many vegetarian items and local beers.

John Stringer

UPDATED: OK. So sorry. My original review below was mistaken. I got mixed up as I met my wife and son here but didn't order (I got the breakfast from a different place and thought it was here). My wife and son had buffalo wings and chicken fingers. I actually didn't like the buffalo wings but the chicken fingers were decent. Best thing I had was the wonderful drinks from the bar! My original review: Had a wonderful breakfast here. I ordered one of the bowls with scrambled eggs and it was awesome. Portions are plentiful, too!

Susan Glasscock

Great food and atmosphere.

Gerica Cammack

I had a cup of chili it wasn't my favorite can't wait to go back and try something different. Rojo is still a great place

Reauchann Richardson

Black bean burger is awesome

David Batchelor

Got the fried fish tacos on corn totillas, Great!

Jeremy P

Always a favorite! Try the Rojo Burrito.

april williams

Wonderful food and great drinks.

Robyn Buckner

Best thing about Rojo is the convenience. Food is alright, service is okay, prices are meh.

Michael Gerrits

Eclectic restaurant w Latin and American food, such a neat place to go to. Was our first time visiting and it was great! We had Mexican but the menu was huge w so many different options. Highly recommend Rojo!

Fred Hopson

Really enjoyed this place. It was my last place to have a drink in Birmingham, very enjoyable. The food there was exactly what I was looking for.

Tammy Mckendree

Great food. Nice atmosphere. You can eat inside or on the patio.

Rex McDonald

Decently priced food, attentive and helpful staff in the heart of South Side. Side bar with live music, sports events and trivia are great crowd plus patio for good weather. A little cramped in the space, but the food is good. Plentiful selection of adult beverages and soft drinks make it a great place to go any night of the week. Fast service gets your food to you and it's as you ordered it the greatest part of the time.

Julia Juarez

Kinda hipster with Latin splashes. Always willing to help out a cause or non-profit.

I saw Rojo featured in Birmingham Magazine and had to give it a shot. I love tacos and living in Texas for most of my life I am a taco aficionado, if there is such a thing. Rojo did not disappoint. They have a lot of options on the menu that it's hard to choose. No matter what you decide on, it's going to be good. Ordering is done via walkup counter and then finding a seat. The tables were close together but in a quaint, we're all friends here kind of way. There is a lovely patio and unique works of art adorn the walls. Food is quick, staff is friendly, I really enjoyed my visit to Rojo and it comes recommended.

Brooklynn Overton

You look at a menu and order up at a counter. Food was super delicious but hate that you pay for salsa and chips. Not super expensive but not for large groups either. Food was delicious

Miayeta Walker

Love, love, love, this place very good food and friendly staff.

Carolyn Forte

Food was great! Thanks for supporting Dining Out for Life.

Eli H.

Great food!

Irene Maria

Fun Atmosphere. We really enjoy going to this restaurant

Alden Williams

Hang out spot with late night food and fun patio.

terry Mcclinton

Cute little neighborhood place. I got the nachos with chili.. wasn't impressed at all but overall, I'd definitely reccomend..*good prices.

Tunalic

Always tasty! Good atmosphere and a great staff. They offer an extensive menu with American and Latin cuisine and I don't think I've ever had anything bad there. They have a decent amount of vegetarian options and good fully stocked bar.

Quinton H

Great experience! Everyone was very friendly, especially the manager. Food was very good with a lot of different options, but the genuine atmosphere really topped it off!

Jackie Rhodes

Hip place you visit more for the atmosphere than the food.

Rae Noling

It's food. I'd stick with chips and salsa though.

christopher waldrop

I went there at 230pm. Jake the bartender was great! The custom taco was d-lish-us

Greg Baker

Great place to eat loved the food we had.

TaShundra Robinson

Delicious lunch option!! I had the spinach burrito and my friend enjoyed her chicken quesadilla. The customer service was great and the dining area was warm and cozy.

Lewis DeCarlo

Excellent food. Awful service. The order taker forgot to turn in half the tickets from our large group of 12. People that arrived last we served in just a few minutes while early arrivals waited over 30 minutes. No apology offered for the mistake. Would have stayed around and ordered drinks. We just ate and left to go lounge elsewhere.

Rhonda Weeks

Great food! Very neat atmosphere.

Natalie S.

Thursday nights at Rojo’s is always great! My friends and I meet up for margarita night at least once or twice a month. I tried the Philly for the first time this past Thursday and it was soooooo good!! The food and drinks are at a reasonable price and really good. The Only thing is parking sucks. You can always find a parking spot on the other side of the park if you don’t feel like circling around the block waiting for someone to leave. It’s definitely worth the short walk!

David Porter

I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, until the non-customers that had a tambourine showed up and decided to camp out on the sidewalk next to the restaurant. It was hard to have any sort of conversation with the people I was there with and the security guard that was working the Friday night we were there, encouraged the tambourine playing. Put a damper on the evening. Food was good and the evening was really nice on the patio until then.

Kristi Griffin

Went back a second time and it was MUCH BETTER!

Polly Mitella Goins

Atmosphere is relaxed. Veggie tacos excellent

Tori Flowers

Cool atmosphere and great beans!

Viktoria Bogantes

They have paper straws which is a amazing, the food is very good. We also had chips and salsa as a starter and the salsa is amazing. You order the food at the counter so no need to wait for a person to get your order, and the food was ready very fast. The paella is huge and delicious!

Lee Champagne

Very nice place and the workers were very diligent. A liberal and fun environment, but not recommended for people looking for a quiet meal. The restaurant space is small, fast paced, and the food is very good and fresh. I highly recommend this place and will definitely go again!

Shawn Scott

Sangria Margaritas are the best I've ever had. I compare all others to theirs. Food is delicious also.

C Bondy

Excellent staff, and tasty food! I've eaten here multiple times this month, and plan to come back! They've had trivia night and live music while I was there. Entertainment was great, and everyone was very friendly. I highly recommend Rojo!

David Jung

Really good food..the poetry nite turned into an open mic rap nite..if thats what ya like..tad pricey,yet supports local restaurant. No table service..order at bar,then wait on food...different.

Dani Bransby

I eat here more than I should but the food is just so good!

Flyaway Soul

The atmosphere was nice and the food was good enough. The people were cool to talk to and I liked the decorations. The tacos and the fajitas are tasty.

William DeCastro

I have always enjoyed this restaurant. They have an easy system where you walk up to order & then they serve you the food at your table. I had the Jalepeno BLT Tacos with grilled chicken & they were excellent! The only thing I thought could be made better was the queso. I thought the queso was bland & could use something, like peppers or a little spice.

M M G

Food was outstanding atmosphere was relaxing and we sat outside. Service was pretty quick and I love the area right across the street is a park. Try this place out you won't be disappointed also some interesting items on the menu, And the late hours were convenient for a last-minute grab a bite spontaneous on the way home trip.

Kris Rose

Good food, quickly severed. Had a group utilize the meeting room and that worked out great.

rahul mulchandani

Excellent combination of Mexican and American menu. One of the best tacos I’ve had. They also have a good variety of draft beers almost all local.

Courtney Marshall

I have yet to have a bad chicken taco here. Haven't tried the rest of the menu. The staff could be a little more welcoming though. Also, don't ask me why I really don't like the atmosphere of the spot. What's up with the Christmas tree for example?! This isn't R. Kelly's house.

Rosie Herdt

The food was good once you figure out the overly complicated menu and ordering process. Parking is always an issue so wear comfortable shoes you'll have to do a bit of walking to get there but it will be well worth it. Enjoy..I did.

L. Warren Munroe

Rojo is a Birmingham gem! Each dish I have had has been delicious while the nachos are my standby favorite. I can only resist going again for so long before the nachos reel me back in. The guacamole is the best in town in my opinion. Rojo supports our city and its community which makes its food even tastier! I bring all my friends and out-of-towners to Rojo....never a disappointment.

Kelsey

Great food! Impressive menu. Tiny place and difficult to navigate when crowded. I still really liked it. They have an outside area for dog owners, a covered heated patio, some indoor seating, and bar seating. They also have weekend brunch with drink specials. The menu has Latin and American options. Overall you won't be disappointed. Just remember it's self serve!

Jenifer Mason

Great food and friendly, casual environment

Levi Johnson

Excellent atmosphere. Great place to eat out on the patio. Food is excellent. Serves booth American and Mexican fare. Priced just right. Has a bar if you are needing a cocktail.

Pete Welch

American and Latino menus. Red chile pork burrito is one of the best dishes on the menu. Hamburgers are also great. Location looks over a park so sit outside if not too hot.

Bernard G.

Whoa, why this place get's 4.5 stars, from almost a thousand reviews is beyond me! Now, how much, I wonder would it cost them to spring for an actual taco bowl for the so called taco salad? I gave two stars, because the ingredients on that salad my wife ordered and on the Mediterranean Quesadilla that I ordered were good. On the latter item, though, the only cheese used was feta, which doesn't really melt well. So, the entire composition just fell apart, while I was trying to eat it. If there'd been a mixture of feta and, say, Monterey jack, this would have been much, much better

Dylan Patterson

I got the steak fajitas. It was alright some of the steak was burned and the meat is pretty much shredded. The serving size is decent but they only give you four little wraps with it. I piled on all of them and not even half of my plate went on there. Its extra for more raps though so I just ate my stuff off the plate as is. Next time I'll probably just get a burrito or quesadilla.

Samantha Hays

One of my favorite places to eat. I go here at least 1 or 2 times a month. Great place to watch games, hang out on the patio, or sometimes attend events. Great drinks and beer selection, the local beer selection rotates regularly. Amazing brunch as well...I recommend their bloody mary.

Shades Creek Dental Patient Centered Care

Excellent Margaritas! Great spot to catch a drink and meal with a friend. They have a great side room you can rent for parties or larger groups and the atmosphere is top notch. Friendly staff and great food are a staple of this place. Off the beaten path but well worth it! Enjoy
