Delicious food and good service. I have patronized the restaurant many times and have never been disappointed.

We had been driving all day, so sent the guys out to pick up dinner at Rosita's. Ate in our motel room; food travelled well from restaurant to motel (not far though).

This restaurant is horrible. I have tried it over the years hoping it would get better, unfortunately, it gets worse. It's suppose to be Mexican food, but it's not. If you like TV dinners or completely Americanized Mexican food that has no flavor, you may like this place.

I love Rositas! Chips, yummy, chunky salsa = amazing, a total fan of their enchiladas. The sauce is so good & reminds me of a Mexican restaurant in Milwaukee that I loved! My mom says they must make their own tortillas, she had fajitas. A plate of enchiladas, with soup or salad runs around 12.00. Kids meals 5.99, drink included.... More

Rosita's serves generous and authentic Mexican specialties with a genuine smile. Every person I have met in this rural desert paradise of Newberry Springs agrees. The night we enjoyed chilli rellanos and carne asadas, there was a happy family of 12 celebrating simply being together in a warm and wonderful place. The owners and staff take great pride in making... More

Kind of a dingy place. Wanted to eat in the Bar area. There was a "private" party going on. I looked. 5 people. Who shuts down a bar for 5 people. What kind of B.S. is that. So I ate in one of the booths. I've tasted better from lunch trucks. Service was good, but that's the only positive. What... More

We were looking for Mexican food and this place was recommend during our stay in Barstow. We enjoyed the chips and salsa before the main course, really good. The menu was typical of most American-Mexican restaurants. But, the food my wife and I thought was a step above most places we have eaten with the same menu. What impressed us... More

If you really like great Mexican food, you will probably be disappointed like I was. The staff was nice, service was good but food was just "ok". Prices are reasonable, but I will pass on by next time.

Looking for a lunch spot, we stopped here. It appears to be a long-established restaurant. They have an extensive menu. I ordered a single taco, which was delicious, and the size was adequate for me. My husband ordered a burrito and was quite happy. Many of the other people there seemed to be locals who come there often.
