These people are criminals from mexico and hate white and black people. They messed with my food on purpose because I complained about having to get clean silver ware. I found what looked like a rubber/condom tip in my burrito. I showed them and they said chefs glove must have fell off. I could have killed me. I didnt even... More

Remember when La Rosita was the best and most authentic Mexican restaurant? It is again! Isreal is back in charge and the food and service have returned to those great origins.

We had had wonderful food here in the past and were eager to introduce another family member to what we thought would be a great dining experience. We walked in on a Saturday during the noon hour. People were walking out. Whether they had eaten was unclear, I say this because we walked in to an empty restaurant. There was... More

The food here is pretty good and authentic. I went for lunch a few months ago and there were only three other tables with customers at them, but the service was still pretty slow. The prices are bit steep, and you have to pay for chils and salsa if you want them.

If you enjoy snacking on compimentary chips and salsa at a mexican restaurant while you wait, forget that happening here. you have to buy the chips and salsa and it comes in salad dressing squirt bottles. It is more like a condiment than a salsa. Nothing on the menu appealed to me so I went with the tortilla soup which... More

This is the second time I've been. After a bad first experience, I was reluctant to return. A friend talked me into it, as she had a coupon that was about to expire. I was first greeted by signs on the door instructing patrons to read the fine print on their coupons. A waiter showed us to a table without... More

First off, let me say that the food is great. However, the reason I'm writing this review is because of all my years of dining out I have never walked out of a restaurant...until now. All because they woudn't make my wife a bean taco. Really? In 20 years of Mexican dining, this has never been a problem. Tacos were... More

Not the norm for Mexican restaurant!!! Must PAY for chips and salsa! And the entrees are overpriced. Remember to "read the small print" and be careful what you order, cause if you don't like it, too bad:( The manager will tell you, "you order, we fix what you order, if you not like, you pay anyway". The meat used in... More

We visited the Louisville location of this restaurant in September, 2011. I ordered the seafood burrito which was supposed to have contained a variety of seafood. In fact only a few shrimp were in the burrito. I wrote the restaurant and did not receive a timely reply. When I ultimately received a reply it was suggested that we visit the... More

My family and i have been fans of this establishment for years but our support was tested with latest dinner that truly was a fiasco. Our party of 8 was promptly seated and served drinks, but after a 90 minute wait for entrees and repeated trips to the owner to inquire on the delay, we probably won't be returning. No... More
