We eat at El Rosal at least once a week. The food is great and the service is friendly. If you like Mexican food, you definitely want to eat at this El Rosal. Great menu and the food is reasonably priced.

This was our first visit and we'll be back. My chicken enchilada was full of very tender, tasty chicken. It's easy for chicken to be dry, especially in dishes that are smothered in sauce and cheese, but this chicken was really good. It was your basic Mexican restaurant with chips, salsa, rice and beans. Very reasonable prices. All really good.... More

This family-owned Mexican restaurant has never disappointed on taste and quality. The food is served very hot, tasty, and relatively quickly. I love their chicken enchiladas (FULL of chicken) with red sauce and cheese. We lunch eat there several times a month. Service is always friendly. The slowest part is the payment process, which is handled at one register and... More

We were driving from Fresno to Oakland and needed to stop for dinner. Looked at Tripadvisor under Mexican food and took a 5-10 minute detour. If you are willing to devote an extra 15 minutes away from 99 (total time going both ways) it is really worth it. I had something called "sopas" which are thick corn tortillas with meat... More

I like all Mexican food, and El Rosal delivers. The tostadas are a great dish, and of course enchiladas. But they also have lots of Mexican specialities.

This is authentic Mexican food at its finest. It is usually busy so sometimes you have a wait but it is definitely worth it. The atmosphere is very pleasant also.

My husband and I have been eating here for years and lucky for us we live fairly close to this restaurant. The food is always the same, freshly made, authentic and tasty. I haven't had a bad meal here. We usually order the same thing to share, which is the four item combination plate consisting of a taco, tostado, chile... More

The chips are good. Choice of corn or flour. I usually have the two tacos lunch special. Chicken with rice and beans. Try the tomatillo (green sauce). Very very good. The family orders shrimp enchiladas. They say it's delicious. I might agree if I liked shrimp.
