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.

My family has been going here for 30+ years! The best Mexican food ever! Love the enchiladas & beans, short ribs & chili rellenos!

The two of us visited for dinner. Because of the good reputation I expect a wait, but there were lots of tables free. I had a fajita de pollo, and my wife had mole en pollo. Both were outstanding. I am a hearty eater, and am accustomed to filling up. But after I stuffed myself beyond my limit, 1/3 of... More

Menu is in Spanish and English, best chips anywhere get a side of homemade guacamole to go with them. Margarita's are strong as well.

Long standing restaurant that I went with a colleague to eat. Prices are fair and food is excellent. I had the carne asada tacos and they were great. They get busy at lunch but worth a wait.
