Rojo’s Is a thoroughly enjoyable, very informal, modestly priced neighborhood Mexican/American restuarant inhabited by a diverse crowd, many of whom live on Birmigham’s historic and eclectic Southside.

I was in Birmingham for one night, & this place was nearby. It was a casual fun place with some interesting items. They had a caprese quesadilla as a special that night which was tasty -- and I also had a great Margarita.
