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.

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.
