We have eaten here many times and love the South American flair to the cuisine. We had a party of thirty people at this dinner. We used the upstairs Speakeasy for the party where everyone is dressed in 1920's attire. The food came out on time, hot, and delicious. Fun was had by all.

This is not a Tex Mex place, this is a restaurant in the historic part of town that has food with flavor and not just hot/spice. This was our second visit to Rolando's with my wife and our two old kids. We ordered a couple of dinners and shared "family style" like we often do. The tamales were the best... More

We had drinks only. They have entertainment on the patio which draws a crowd. I came for the Week of Wonders Magic show and for the after party with the Documentary Film Festival group. I had a great time and will be back!

Great restaurant. Try the guacamole, plato cubano and cold beer. Hard to beat after a round of golf on a warm day! Great spot for dinner as well. JLN

What a wonderful surprise! My husband and I decided to have dinner our first night in Hot Springs. I'm not a fan American Mexican food and this place was NOTHING like that. The food was skillfully and beautifully prepared and was so delicious I was unable to stop myself from completing my meal even after I was ridiculously full. Wonderful... More

I think of this more as a Cuban restaurant with a Mexican mix. My favorite is Queso Flamiado...flaming cheese. It's delicious!

nice people, real friendly service. Very helpful in selecting from this unique menu. I have eaten at Rolando's several times over the years, and always enjoy something new. Never disappointed. I liked the patio certain times of year, but felt a little sorry for the servers shlepping food up and down those stairs.

Not your typical heavy Latin food. Seasoned perfectly. Generous portions. Well worth the price. Nice atmosphere. Clean

Not "Tex Mex"--this restaurant has food with more flavor and more vegetables. The dishes have black beans rather than refried beans and sauces flavored with tequila, wine and sherry. It isn't gourmet but it is good.
