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

I had heard nothing but good things about this restaurant so we gave it a try. The portions were fine but the steak they used for carne sada was full of grissle. The wait staff was very good and the atmosphere. I'll try again soon but order something different. The other meals at the table were traditional Mexican and were... More

Great Mexican/Salvadoran food. I had a combination fajita platter with delicious chicken, beef, shrimp and sausage. The only improvement would be if they served a bigger side portion of guacamole. The guacamole portion was minuscule. The chips were great and the salsa was light, fresh and unique. The service was very efficient and pleasant.

My husband and I love Mexican food and have been to just about every place there is in Frederick. Santa Rosa has them all beat, especially with its Salvadorian mix. Their food is always delicious and their service is fantastic. The margaritas are also sublime! We love it there and have been there at least once a month, bringing friends... More

We have returned to Santa Rosa many times and are never disappointed. The margaritas are fantastic! The chicken stew and beef/chicken fajitas are awesome! I think we would eat here every week if we could fit it into our schedule. We will be back for sure! :)
