Great Mexican food

This is a nice little local Mexican restaurant with a friendly atmosphere. The restaurant was bustling when we visited and we received good service and really good food. The tableside guacamole was fabulous! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Had a ranchero steak with a well prepared enchilada, rice and "charro" beans. Overall it had an expected taste and was quite uneventful. Maybe a bit shade of fast food for me. It hit the spot.

I can't believe these reviews! Los Cerritos in Roswell?? My husband had the relllenos with beans and rice. He loves rellenos - not these. They tasted terrible, greasy and stale. I had the fajitas salad, usually a safe choice. The fajitas veggies were limp, greasy, and room temperature. The rest of the salad was OK. I've lived in the southwest... More

The plates of food here are quite ample - enough to share between two. The chiles rellenos were freshly made and delicious. A nice touch is the ability to order charro (whole) beans instead of the usual refried beans. A strange possibility since they do not have a full liquor license (just wine and beer) is a margarita made with... More

Good Mexican food. The waitress was helpful and nice. Good food. The service was a little slow but not unusual for smaller towns. We'd return.

My food was good, I had the Carne Asada, which in this case was beef, a thin slice of roast, as that is the Mexican style so often, and all of the sides were very good. I made some little tacos from the corn tortillas they provided, and even put in the slices of avocados that came with it. Good... More

I highly recommend!!! My family and I eat here all the time. My husband and I love the Steak Picado - although I order it with Jalapeno rather than green chili.

Cerritos is an institution in Roswell. It's a large, attractive restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. The menu has all the expected Mexican items with some unexpected surprises added. We tried the Alien beer ( local) , a wheat beer and were pleasantly surprised. Bring your appetite and enjoy a pleasant meal!

We had lunch here and it was very good. I had the enchiladas and my boyfriend the chili relleno. It was average and a little overpriced for what was served. The atmosphere was also average.
