If you want great, and I do mean great, Tex/Mex or Mexican food and you're in Huntsville, Alabama there is no better dinning experience than Rosie's Cantina on South Memorial Parkway. First your meal is served quickly, none of this waiting around stuff, and it's always hot and well prepared, but most of all, no matter what you order its... More

We were in town and staying close by. We had heard that Rosies had good margaritas and they were. The menu had a great selection and we chose enchiladas. Cheese enchiladas had only cheese sauce, no red sauce which was a little disconcerting. The tomatillo enchiladas were great. Check the menu carefully and be specific about your sauce preference.

We went to Rosie's for dinner as a family with 4 adults and 2 young children. It was very busy and crowded. It seems to be a very popular restaurant in the area. The food was reasonably good. The service was somewhat slow. The seating really wasn't conducive to a good atmosphere with young children. Most of the menu prices... More

Great value and good portion sizes. The atmosphere is nice and the service was good. Their tortillas are really good. However, the queso blanco was a little pricey, $6.25 for a bowl it was good.

The place gets busy at night but the staff was great. Good is excellent and a good value for the portion. Heard about it from several friends who live on the area about how good it is. Glad we tried it, they are right.

This place has pretty good food and service with a chain restaurant feel. My husband and I gave it a try but we are a little spoiled by our mom and pop Mexican place back home. The portion sizes are generous ( except for the $5 cheese dip) but flavor-wise it was middle of the road.

A different twist on Mexican! Chips made fresh, which I loved. We went a dinner so we waited for maybe 5 minutes for a table. We were promptly waited on & our food arrived quickly.
