Because another couple wanted us to experience a true Spanish restaurant, I reluctantly agreed to go to Tia Rosa's, protesting all the way that I did not like Mexican food. Now, in my defense, I meant the usual greasy fare at Taco Bell and other fast food establishments, so I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the chimichangas and fish... More

Main restaurant is closed due to fire back in February. They have "to go" section that you have to order and find a table. Most likely you will sit outsize because few tables inside will be taken. Other than this the food was awesome.

This restraurant is one of my favorites. My wife and I visit once a week. The normal restaurant we go to had a fire and hopefully to reopen soon. But no worries they have another location at Higely and Elliot. The menu and food are the same Also it is less crowed with no wait times

My husband & I consider ourselves regulars at Tia Rosa. We have been going for several years & have never been disappointed with our food selections. If there is a negative, it is the noise level. It is difficult to carry on a conversation without speaking very loudly & because of that, takes away from the enjoyment of the dining... More

Fabulous atmosphere and the food is wonderful. This Mexican restaurant serves many seafood dishes. Come early during the winter months as it fills up quickly on weekends.

This beautiful restaurant is tucked away from the road and a bit hard to find, but the search is rewarded by the whole package. The decor is imported from Mexico and adds authenticity and ambiance, but it's the food that soars. Go no further for the best fish and shrimp tacos ever. I have had both in many other places,...

The main building is closed because of a fire. The take out location in the parking lot is serving. I think they are overwhelmed by the crowd... If you want to eat in a parking lot and off paper plates, go for it. I found the food to be very bland and average at best. A friend recommended it and... More

I get the shrimp tacos every time. The flying saucer is excellent also. I cold go down the list but the bottom line is that it is all good. You can't choose a bad dish.
