I have been here a few times and I still don't get why keep coming back. You can get a much better food ad the Fajita Grande which is not far away.

I finally convinced my partner to try a new place and we went to Santa Rosa. Yum, from the salsa to chips, fajitas to beans, rice and service. They are wonderful. I have not had a bad meal there yet. I like the way they do not overload you on chips, very smart. My favorite are the steak fajitas. Made... More

Soooo..... I don't understand the point of bringing a less than half full basket of chips to the table? Then when we asked for a refill we got a second basket that but the waitress never returned with the salsa. Strangest thing ever. Now to our lunch. My taco salad was ok but the cold ground beef left much to... More

I went here for the first time, very unsure of what to expect. I saw on their online menu that they had Pupusas. After seeing this, I was sold on trying it. That is not an item you find often at restaurants. The restaurant is small but very authentic. Our server was very friendly and speedy with all drink/menu items.... More

We have been going to Santa Rosa for years and have never had a bad meal. They have a great selection of Salvadoran, Spanish and traditional Mexican dishes. Portions are plentiful and the margaritas are cold and tasty. Service is fast and excellent, friendly too!

Tried the lunch special instead of dropping a big dime on the regular menu items. After the first bite, I'd wish I would have gotten a normal size dish. Don't get me wrong, the lunch special was filling, but I would have liked to sampled more food. Also, the lunch special selection was limiting. I ordered the chimichanga and my... More

Wow! Unexpected jewel of authentic Salvadoran food as well all the Mexican standbys! Don't let the strip mall location fool you, this restaurant serves superb food in a fun atmosphere with Soccer games from around the world playing on multiple TVs. A typical Salvadoran soup is served (I forget the name of the dish) that is the best central or... More

Having lived in Frederick and passed by this place, we decided to try this on a whim. Salsa was different but not bad. Chicken enchilada and tacos al pastor were excellent. Will definitely eat there again. Note we were definitely in the minority as it would appear the Restaurant is authentic.

Santa Rosa offers Salvadorean and Mexican style fare in a pleasant atmosphere with excellent, friendly, unobtrusive service. We are always graciously remembered as 'regulars'. You will find the food savory and consistent. The background noise level is not obnoxious. If spicy hot is your thing, a couple of hot sauces are provided for an extra boost in this department. There... More
