Liz and Jim Baron
Founders of Blue Mesa


“We love your Sweet Potato Chips” is how many of our loyal guests described Blue Mesa in a survey. Sometimes little things say it all. Hand cut sweet potato chips. Sweet and crispy with a touch of chile. Colorful as the Southwest. Unique to Blue Mesa. That’s who we are. So whether you say, “I love your sweet potato chips, your Red Chile Salmon, your Jalapeno Relish, your Sunday Brunch, your Blue Margarita, or your Sweet Corn Cake,” we hope you share our passion for our food.

Sunday Brunch

Blue Mesa won third place for the Best Brunch in the World from the International Restaurant & Hotel Awards (in the Value Restaurants’ category). Need we say more?

Tequila and Friends

Blue Mesa’s Tequila Bar has received the regional Santé Restaurant Award for Spirits Hospitality. Over 100 tequilas. And an emphasis on tequila mixology, the art of making great tequila cocktails like our Cucumber Jalapeno or Meyer Lemon Mint Margaritas. And a commitment to using fresh squeezed juices in our cocktails. Each month we feature a tequila distillery – from the well known to the boutique. The tequila is featured in our Top Shelf Margarita made with reposado tequila, organic agave nectar and fresh squeezed lime juice (and nothing else!). Each month we also feature a fresh fruit margarita reflecting our commitment to only using fresh fruit in our bar. For the past few years we have sourced our fresh fruit from local Texas farms whenever possible – from Ruby Red grapefruits, to Meyer lemons, watermelon and plums. Our Tequila Tuesday Party celebrates the featured distillery – offering free tastes and discounted fresh fruit margaritas. Monthly tequila dinners and events, and Tequila Labs support our Tequila Bar program. Of course, our Original Blue Frozen Margarita is always available and adds to our great Happy Hour. And our complimentary Quesadilla Bar adds to the fun. Blue Mesa’s Tequila Bar is a great place to meet friends and enjoy the best tequilas in town!

Catering and Parties

We love to throw a party and we are good at it! Menus designed for your party needs. Service staff that know how to make your event a seamless affair. We do all the work from beginning to end, allowing you to be free with your guests. Private rooms at the restaurant are set up for your business or social event. We have built a reputation as the Southwestern caterer of choice – great food, atmosphere and service. Our prices and overall value are without comparison. We are now on of the largest restaurant caterers in the southwest. Your place or ours. Small party, big party.
