Great date night, always trying something new

I've been to Rolando's twice now and I've cleaned my plate both times! The flavor combinations are new and unique, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is fun and festive.

The food here was very good. I liked the Latin fusion influence. It is definitely not your average Mexican restaurant.

We go to Hot Springs occasionally and always try to eat at Rolando's. Food is great and we have always had excellent service! Whitney was our server this time and she was awesome! Go and try Lula's enchiladas!

In town for races on a Sunday. Didn't think that there would be many restaurants open. Came here based on reviews from trip advisor. You must check out upstairs as it is a cozy and totally different look. We weren't that hungry therefore chose to split an appetizer. Glad we did. We got the large sampler that costs $22. Great...

Tried this place for the first time my last trip for lunch. The food was fresh and delicious! Very fairly priced too! We had a great waitress named Megyan that made our experience very nice even though she was slammed. It's seems to be a very popular place. Would definitely go again !

Better choice for something different than mexican. The Queso flamado is less Queso like and more melted cheese like. The tamales were on point though!!! Real good rice, guac and salsa as well!!
