Staff was way nice and helpful. They brought you hot chips and spicy!! salsa to snack on. Went... read more

The place was absolutely packed on a Saturday afternoon around 2 PM. We saw many locals and Hispanics...so we assumed the food had to be authentic. However, after we were served we concluded crowds were attracted by very reasonable prices and huge portions. Chips were fresh but salsa was very average. Beef tacos my wife had were nearly inedible. I... More

This is a hit and miss restaurant. I have been here a few times and sometimes I receive good food and other times not so good. However there service was horrible this last trip. I had to find somebody to take my order. They didn't even bring water. When the check finally came we split the check, it took forever... More

This appears to be a family owned, nice little restaurant. It is not fancy but great food. I tried something different and new to me-corn tamales with green chile. I thoroughly enjoyed it. My colleagues enjoyed their food and adult beverages.

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

Saw good reviews and decided to try it. Very very good and authentic. Super fresh chips and salsa. The enchiladas were amazing. Rita was great as well. Glad we went here
