Love the waitresses

We have lunch every Friday and they know what we like. We have celebrated many a birthday there and they are cheerful and welcoming. Good cheap ala carte entries and good soup and excellent shrimp cocktails.

We were headed to Modesto for our boys football game, checked out Trip Advisor for a top rated Mexican Restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Friendly service and delicious food. My husband had the Carnitas Dinner and I had the El Pastor Tacos-oh my goodness the best tacos ever!!!!!

My family and I love El Rosal. Everything that is made here is excellent. My husband and I usually eat here at least a few times a month. We love their combination plate of enchilada, relleno, taco and tostado. I am a big fan of their chicken enchilada and relleno with green sauce. Their green sauce is the best around!... More

EL Rosal is a Restaurant that I frequent quite often. It has a nice menu of classical Mexican food. What I like is the combination plate in which you can pick one or two items with rice and beans. The people that serve you are always professional.

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.
