Best Mexican Food in Round Rock

During a chilly and damp weekend, I was seeking comfort food, and this was the place closest to me where I could get it. I’d frequented this location before, so I knew how good the staff was, and the quality of their food. There are a few other Tex-Mex places in the vicinity, but as far as I’m... read more

We frequent this restaurant regularly. yummy food, great prices. Their tortilla soup is the best around. I have friends who always eat there when they are in town. This is an older restaurant and I love the funky nature of the building. I am referring to the 620 location; the IH35 location is new, and I have not been in... More

I have eaten at Mesa Rosa, Round Rock, several times simply because it's a quiet place in which to hold a conversation with a friend in a lovely, quiet atmosphere. However, I am always disappointed by the food which I rate so-so.

Stayed at Springhill Suites directly behind this restaurant and decided to try it just based on location. The salsa is excellent, I would go back just for the salsa!!! All other food (fajitas and burrito) was great. Seemed they were short staffed as we did have to wait for refills and such but all employees were hustling as fast as... More

Our work group likes to meet outside on their patio for happy hour. The country atmosphere is very relaxing. Food is excellent and service is really good.

I have been to Mesa Rosa many times & every time I go I always have great service & food. If you are in the mood for some real good mexican food the you have to go to Mesa Rosa's. Their hot sauce is great. This last time I went I got the Flamitos for my appetizer & man were... More

When I lived on the northwest side of Austin, I frequented the Mesa Rosa location off of Anderson Mill Road, and always had great service and excellent food there. Living in Round Rock now, I frequented the location here. Located off of IH-35 (and clearly visible from the highway), this was easy to get to, and had good parking. Being... More

The service was very lacking. When we were seated we did not have any silverware and the waiter did not bring any until at least 5 or more minutes after our food had been served to us. It's reasonably priced. The food is not anything amazing. Your average Mexican meal. The service was just slow and lacking. They were not... More

Drinks are supposedly on special, but they're not that great of a deal. $3 Dos XX is ok, but considering there are no food or appetizer specials, I'd recommend looking elsewhere for happy hour deals (there are others in the area that are much better). I ordered one Bud Light draft, and it was totally flat. I told the bartender... More

We've been to Mesa Rosa (Round Rock) several times on a Friday night. We particularly enjoy not having to wait to be seated, unlike Chuy's down the road where the food is just okay. We have always been pleased with the food at Mesa Rosa--chile relleno, quesadilla with beef fajitas, nachos delight with beef fajitas, enchiladas tradicionales (beef/cheese) with chile... More
