Each time I travel from Ohio to Texas, I go just a little out of my way to eat at Rolando's Restaurant in Hot Springs. The food is fresh and delicious. The wait staff and ambiance are excellent. Last night, I tried the Pollo Chuchaqui. Chicken tenderloins with a cuban mojo sauce, served with rice, beans and veggies. Very yummy.... More

Being from San Antonio, I'm use to Texmex, so I was a little skeptical about the restaurant. BUT I was VERY impressed! Large portions and fresh tasting. The menu is also vegetarian friendly. Great time there with the Sangria Pitcher! loved it!

We sat on the terrace in the evening. It was very romantic. Our waiter was fabulous. The food is Mexican with a Colombian (I think) flair. I was concerned I wouldn't like it because I don't care to much for Mexican food but it was so delicious.

Had lunch with the girlfriends and I tried the Pollo Chuchaqui. Can't pronounce it, but would certainly recommend it. It was thin slices of chicken tenderloin marinated in cuban mojo, which I believe is garlic and lemon or lime juice and cumin, then grilled. The sauce had stuck to the chicken so you had grill marks with that tasty crunch.... More

We were looking for a restaurant with a rooftop deck & were steered to Rolando's. What a hidden gem of a patio! Although you do go through the restaurant & up a few sets of stairs, it's not exactly a "rooftop" deck where you can see people walking or see the lights of the shopping strip. HOWEVER, it was lovely.... More

Great food and great service here. I would suggest that you eat on the patio or the speakeasy as the restaurant section didn't look nearly as nice. We ate on the patio on a Saturday night with some live music from a one man band. The outdoor patio area was very pleasant even on an August evening. Parking was a... More

The food was great and the staff were very helpful with the menu but the place could use a good cleaning. In fact, it seemed most of the places in town could use some sprucing up.

We have eaten here several times, never disappointed. My favorite dish is the "Atkins Plate. It gives you a variety if meats. This time we ventured out and ordered the chicken soup. Needless to say we will order it again! We live the location and service as well.

Loved the decor, the food was excellent, not your typical "Mexican" restaurant; wish there were more South American restaurants like this one!
