You can tell walking in that Rosa's has been around a while in a market that is heavy on Mexican restaurants. I was with a family group of 7. Everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes and drinks. I had the pork flying saucer and it was more than I could eat and very tasty.

If you are seeking an authentic Mexican food experience, this is the place for you. We were promptly seated, orders taken and food served. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food although one Midwestern visitor expected ground rather than the traditional shredded Mexican style for beef. The green corn tamale was as close to perfection as I have ever tasted... More

We were so excited to take our out of town visitors to Rosas. We called ahead and made a reservation for 10 people. When we arrived not one person acknowledged us. After 20 mins of people not wanting to make eye contact with us we asked to talk to the manager. The workers then spoke bad about us in Spanish... More

Funky location in a mostly abandoned local mall but absolutely worth the trip. Excellent Mexican food with unique smoky flavor to their beans. Seafood is outstanding and fajitas (with chicken and shrimp) are wonderful, big enough to share and there is nothing like the aromas and the sizzle as they arrive at the table. I have noticed some of the... More

Rosa's has been here longer than I have. The food is excellent and the atmosphere inside is charming. Casual dining. The Avacado Pinapple salad is our favorite.

We have been going to this place for years. It is kind of a drive so we don’t make it often but we are never disappointed. Everything tastes homemade, the décor is inviting and the service is always prompt. We will continue to go whenever we have a chance.

One of the best Mexican restaurants in Phoenix area. I appreciate the range of spice levels available since I can't do hot hot. Fresh taco chips w two types of salsa. Appreciate that I could eat both. Filling meal for very reasonable price. Margarita also excellent, within $6. Overall, highly recommended. You won't regret the choice.

This is very authentic food. Seasoned perfectly and not drowning in cheese. I ordered the seafood enchiladas which came out with grilled fish and large shrimp in the inside. Very good green tomatillo sauce with light cheese. Served with a mixture of roasted vegetables and rice. For those of you complaining the food is not spicy enough order a side... More

I was introduced to Rosa's 20 years ago by my Mother, who was a great Mexican food cook in her own right (very hot). It would be very hard to find a better Mexican restaurant for those looking for authentic Mexican food. Their menu is extensive and it really doesn't matter much what you order; it is all good. Their... More
