I have to agree with the other review that says it is an overpriced taco bell. The mean is hamburger which to me is not authentic Mexican. Flashy interior design, very colorful. Sat a large group of us where we had sit on one side of the doorway and the others on the other side. Close to university and I... More

The was nothing wrong with the food, actually quite the variety, but it did not taste anything different than Taco Bell or taco johns.. I was a little disappointed.. The ambience was better.. And it had more authentic feel, but again, the taste just was not there (and I have eaten in Mexico before, so would know).. Just another chain..

Best Mexican take-out I've had. Service was quick, lots of fresh salsa and sauces, and tacos were awesome.

Fresh, hot tortillas, and a variety of excellent choices made this a great stop for friends who each wanted something a little different, but on the Mexican Food spectrum. Yum! My tamale was meaty and flavorful, the beans and rice perfectly seasoned, and the enchilada exactly right. Yum again!

We always stop here on the way to Colorado. My hubby has been eating here for more than 25 years. We love the tender juicy fajitas and fresh tortillas. Good selections of salsas too. Better than any Taco Bell I have ever been too!

The title tells it all, over prices Taco Bell. However people in this town love it so give it a try if the Taco Bell line is to long. Enjoy

We ate there after a local told us it was "some of the best food in town". Hardly. The food was fine but lacking seasoning or any personality. Freshly made tortillas are nice but not enough to balance what the food lacks. They best thing about the restaurant was the smell as we entered.Too bad the food didn't live up... More

Intrigued by the line of cars wrapped around the building on a Tuesday night, I drove back by to find them wrapped around the building again Wednesday at lunch. Well, I get me some this! In a town of 176 restaurants and my guess 125 of those being mexican/southwestern what the heck! Our food was fresh, hot and good. The... More

Gave my son the runs. Not hours later, we had to pull into Hobby Lobby for a " pit stop". Taco Bell is better than this junk.

I'm from Phoenix, so I'm spoiled by the taste of Southwestern Mexican food. I always try to find that taste wherever I travel, but I'm mostly disappointed. I was in San Angelo recently on business and while there, I had opportunity to try three different Mexican restaurants. Rosa's won, hands down, according to my tastebuds. It's not a sit down... More
