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.

I have tried Rosita's Place a few times, but the last time I was there the quality of the food was not up to par. Maybe they were having a bad day, but there is a lot of competition in the realm of Mexican food, so it would pay to stay on top of their game. I don't see myself... More

great food. Great atmosphere. Authentic Mexican deep fried chips and spectacular salsa. Everything is handmade at the time. One of the best places you can get Mexican in the southwest. Go there you won't be disappointed

Rosita's in Tempe on University serves up some delicious mexican food. I go there at least once a week for happy hour. They serve appetizers for half price. You can't beat that! I highly recommend Rosita's Mexican Restaurant in Tempe. Cheers!!!

Genuine Mexican food and lots of it. Fresh made chips with blazing salsa. Large portions. Neither my wife nor I finished all of our dishes. I had the liver Mexican-style. Unbelievably good, and it left me sweating. This was my second time here and I wasn't disappointed either time.
