Went here with my family. As mentioned salsa was below average. Margaritas were weak, but all else was great. Would recommend, affordable, good service. Clientele was mostly local Hispanic, which says it must be good!

Santa Rosa has delicious tacos and appears to have a great variety of other Mexican and Central American foods as well. Also has beer and complete bar. Close to Route 40 shopping, Comfort Inn and Motel 6.

This restaurant has been around for a long time but we have just recently started eating there. They have excellent food, the only draw back is sometimes the service it not great. So if you have are in a rush I would pass, but if you have the time definitely a great place to eat.

We went to this restaurant with extended family - a group of about 12 people - because it was conveniently located for us to meet, though none of us live in Frederick. I was very pleased with the experience. The food was excellent. (I had the whole, fried tilapia.) The service was very good. And the prices were very reasonable.... More

We've been to several Latin/Mexican restaurants in Frederick and Santa Rosa is our favorite. Good food, good service. I'll still keep searching for a place with the Tex/Mex food I rememeber from home in NM but until I find it here, Santa Rosa is my first choice.

Santa Rosa has been around for many years. They started out small near K-Mart on Rt 40 with really good food, personable service, and low prices. A few years ago, they moved to a larger place nearby and have managed to keep up the quality very nicely. The place is much more up-scale in appearance, but they still cook the... More

Great food and great service! Their papusa and tacos are amazing!! Along with their fajitas and their shrimp dishes! Chips and salsa are complimentary and quite tasty! Better than any "mexican" restaurant out there...that shall rename nameless but you know who I'm talking about. Overall this place is amazing and will always go there for great authentic food!

This place serves Mexican and El Salvadorean food. We decided we'd try the El Salvadorean dishes. We started with the pasteles and tamal de elote. Both were delicious. The tamal was so delicious, we got some to go. They're served with sour cream. My husband ordered COMBINACION GUANACA, which was beef with two eggs, Salvadorean cheese, fried plantain, avocado, rice,... More
