Tia Rosa Restaurant

I like this restaurant. We like to take visitors there for a meal. The food is very good, good size portions, enough for two people to share. The atmosphere is nice, lots of things to look at on the walls.

As Patty H said the Mesa location was closed awhile ago. Their food as always been top of the mark and service as well. with just the one location open sometimes the wait time is quite long but well worth it. Cannot wait for the Greenfield Taqueria to open (closer to where we live). Long time fans of this restaurant.

We eat here frequently and have never had a complaint or a bad meal. My wife was a teacher at a nearby elementary school and she would stop at the take out section and pick up a good dinner on the way home. We have eaten here at least once a month or so for years. Recommend it for a... More

We used to go there often. The main restaurant had a large fire that closed it. The owners chose not to re-open. The place has Ben purchased by another and I believe will be called Rosas.

About as average as I have had. Bland, Just plain average. If you want good Mexican, you have to go to Rosa's Mexican Grill. Ironically, Rosa's is in the process of taking over the old Tia Rosa;s location.

Best beans in town and the best fish tacos I've ever had. Great family and friends atmosphere. The restaurant is decorated great as well.

I loved the Mesa location, but it is closed and has been closed for a good 6 months or more. It's not any wonder that people might be confused: Dennis and Lizbeth Sirrine opened Rosa's Mexican Grill on University for 8 years. They sold it and then opened Rancho de Tia Rosa on McKellips. Last summer the big Tia Rosa... More

This apparently is a very popular place as the parking lot is packed most of the time. I wasn't too impressed, though, with either the menu choices or the food. I was especially disappointed with the seating. Rough tables and chairs were very uncomfortable and the table rocked. Their menu has some items that are not traditional Mexican fare. I... More

The worst meal I have ever eaten. My husband and I planned to eat at the restaurant, not knowing it had closed, so we went to the Taqueria. My husband ordered a cheese enchilada, which he said was just OK. I ordered a chicken quesadilla, and it was horrible. All this melted liquid was pouring out of the quesadilla, all... More

Ok, so if you like Salmon... They have the best grilled salmon around! It has a delicious honey butter glaze with mango salsa and rice. Definately recommend it. Their salsas aren't the traditional Mexican restaurant salsas but they are yummy. I haven't tried many more things on the menu because everytime I go there it's for the salmon, but my... More
