This popular Mesa restaurant provides a very large, authentic menu at reasonable prices. There are several dining areas with a number of different configurations of tables. Service is quick and efficient. Try the camarones diablo, huge shrimp in a spicy chili sauce. There are many combination dinners and just about everything can be ordered a la carte. Unlike many Mexican... More

After experience the expensive Mexican restaurant in Sodoma I was leery of trying yet another one in Arizona. Luckily we stumbled onto Rosita's. We settled into the lounge as it was early afternoon. Right away they served us complimentary nachos and salsa without any pretentious introductions. The Golden margarita without salt was perfect. I had the green corn tamale which... More

I was in Tempe to visit my brother and we went to Rosita's since they know I favor the place. As usual the chips and salsa were perfect. Warm chips, fresh salsa not too too. I had a green corn tamale which is not served much in Colorado and a cheese enchilada and both were just great. The service was... More

So my wife and I used to both work in the vicinity of Rosita's back in the late 80s. We happened to be in the area again and decided to visit for old time's sake. Wow, it was exactly as we remembered. The food, the chips, the salsa and the drinks were as excellent as they were back in the... More

We had no prior knowledge of this restaurant, but it was the first one we saw driving down University Ave in Tempe, not far from the airport, while looking for a quick dinner. We were seated right away, and immediately had bowls of great salsa and chips placed before us by a very friendly and helpful server. Our food was... More

We were looking for a great local Mexican restaurant, and our hotel recommend Rositas. Unfortunately we had very bad service. I only hope that this was simply a really bad night, and not the norm. The service was extremely slow. I was not looking for a rushed dinner, and so did not let that bother me too much. However there... More

Rositas was a good find for lunch coming from the airport. The chile rellenos were one of the best as well as the prickly pear margaritas.

Having read the Tripadvisor reviews for the Phoenix Az area on Mexican Food we found that Rosita's was everything all of you said. Food and place was great and well worth the trip. We thank you all for tip and we really liked it.

I wanted authentic mexican and this didn't disappoint. I had the chicken "stacked enchilada" with the white sauce. It was similar to either a lasagna or a pot pie. Tasted great! I also am not a big fan of fried ice cream, but theirs was different from any other that I'd had before. They roll the ice cream in oreo... More
