Very good authentic Mexican

Very good! Be aware the shredded chicken dishes are not all white meat - there is tons of dark meat too which took me by surprise. But otherwise, fabulous, fabulous meal! Thank you!

I really dug the vibe of this place and do not doubt its authenticity and am well-aware that "authenticity" comes with dark meat chicken which I really hate. My date and I hit there Memorial Day weekend and absolutely LOVED the salsas on the table - fresh and exploding with heat and flavor. Chips are $1 but are WELL worth... More

My wife and I come here as often as we can fit in a visit. Last night we drove from across the valley to have their food. Our waitresses are always friendly and offer fast service. The food is sooo good and inexpensive. Nothing out of a can here!

Mexican Food Done Right My co-worker and I decided we wanted authentic Mexican food for lunch and after reading reviews for Rosita's we headed down to 24th Street and McDowell for lunch. Rosita's isn't one of those typical fancy chain "Mexican Gourmet" restaurants. Rosita's is the real deal and the folks at Rosita's are doing "Mexican Food" up right. As... More

Besides paying 1.70 for chips and salsa which i think should be complementary og dhowing apperciation to their customers i really enjoyed their chili verde burrito that had a kick of heat and enchilada cheesy style was good too. although the menudo was not mexicano authentic the waitress was kind to change it out for my husband without any fuss....

This place is a landmark Mexican restaurant in Phoenix. For me, the service is always been good. Sometimes a wait is necessary. Their chips frest out of the fryer with the red and green salsa are the best. The Relleno plate is damn good. Skip the beans and rice and have more chips......great atmosphere. Good family place.
