I added this restaurant several years ago to TA with a 5 star and even submitted photos. They had everything. New management has taken over. THe first time we went back I got my usual Hamberger salad which has always been great! The patty was thin and overcooked. We waited about 3 months since this was when they first took... More

Recently Rosebud switched up their staff and hired a new manager, Chef Charlie. Unfortunately this seems to have been a bad move. The waitstaff is brand new and inexperienced, unfamiliar with the menu, and difficult to get the attention of. That's not too bad as everyone has a learning curve. However the food is the real change. There is a... More

31 days into ownership, Chef Charlie impressed us with his catfish. We ordered the lunch special as an appetizer and really enjoyed the flavorful coating to this fish. We also had the chicken club, BLT and a burger. All were tasty, and you can't beat the fries and sweet potato fries. A milkshake to go and it was a successful... More

Reading that Chef Charlie had taken over Rosebud, we decided to give it a try for lunch. The grilled shrimp were nearly inedible due to the heavy-handed and poorly chosen seasoning. The chicken fried steak was of the frozen variety straight off a Sysco truck. Service was friendly but slow. The salads had been prepared earlier in the day and... More

The Rosebud fountain and grill is under new management. Chef Charley Lara is cooking and making the menu. The food is wonderful and surprisingly less expensive than it should be for the quality. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

If you love fried pickles, to me theirs are the best in town. You can make a meal off of just them. They also have great hambugers. Friendly staff and always bringing the tea around. NICE. Great atmosphere love the old look.

Expect great food for here. The cooks are awesome. It is typical cafe type food. I usually eat a burger or patty melt. The fries are great too. Onion rings are a close second. Service is hit or miss. I have had both great and poor experiences here. Do not expect a quick lunch.

The staff at the Rosebud work hard to please. Don't be off put by the décor (some of the original soda shop signage) the food is MUCH better looking. The menu is typical café/Grill but the food was very good. The Chef moved through the restaurant and talked with customers. GREAT Chicken fried Chicken served with real mashed potatoes. Definitely...

The food was very good and service was great even though they were very busy at noon. We had the shrimp salad and the shrimp were... More
