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.

Rosita's place came highly recommended from the hotel front desk staff but unfortunately it was not very good. We had high expectations due to the restaurant being local and in Arizona...Mexican food should be authentic here, right? But it was not. The cheese dip was cold and the Guacamole was made with sour cream and was baby food smooth /texture-not... More

Stopped in today for a late lunch, around 1 PM on a Friday. Place was busy, but no wait. The wonderful staff are prompt and friendly. The place is immaculate and charming. There are lots of Mexicans eating here, and all kinds of Gringos. The locals know it and even the business crowd shows up here. I do not feel... More

We found this on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try and were so happy we did! Authentic Mexican food that you can tell was made with love. We went here on our first night in town and changed our dinner reservations for our second night so we could go back to Rosita's! From the hot tortilla chips... More

Excellent authentic Mexican Food! Fresh hot chips and salsa made for a good starter. The chimichanga was full of chicken and cheese!

Rosita's is not a fancy suburban "Mexican Gourmet Upscale Dining Experience, filled up with columns and statues and wealthy Canadian retirees. This is the real thing. This week I took my wife and parents. It was loud with celebration and loud in paint and decor. It's located downtown at 24th Street and McDowell. There are security bars on the windows.... More

I got a Mexican food recommendation from a fellow who was repairing our air conditioning system, and I was not disappointed. The family run restaurant had an appealing, though very traditional, menu. I tried the shrimp stuffed chiie relleno which was excellent. The batter was light, the poblano nicely cooked with just the right amount of cheese on top. The... More

I had a great meal and totally enjoyed the atmosphere at this restaurant. It feels like a family joint. Staff was courteous. The portions are huge but I have to say, although I planned to bring home half my meal, I ended up eating it all--it was so yummy. I had shrimp enchiladas with rice and beans. They make the... More
