We had a late lunch at Rosa's. The chips & salsa were excellent, but the guacamole was bland and almost runny ... a very processed taste & consistency. We had three soft chicken tacos that were good, and the #5 combo with a beef taco, beef tamale, cheese enchilada & refried beans and rice that was excellent --- very tasty!... More

This has been a favorite of my family for many years. The food is consistently good. There is sometimes a bit of a wait to get in but we have always had a good meal there. It may not be the best Mexican restaurant but it has been a local favorite for many years. My family has always enjoyed having... More

Tried this location near our hotel because it had been in business since the 1970's. The selections were good and reasonable prices. Our choices were not too spicy and appealed to our tastes. Wait staff were attentive.

I felt like the food is adjusted to meet the taste of the tourists and was not authentic. Prices are too high for the area but service was descent.

The service is prompt and friendly. The carne asada tacos were fresh and super favorable. My friend ordered the carne seca chimichanga which was delicious. The beans and rice ($4.00) extra charge fell flat! The beans are runny and did not taste fresh, and the rice was well overcooked and lacked flavor. The margaritas were superb! In short... Go eat...

We always stop in at Rosa's when in Tucson. This is perhaps the best meal we had there. Possible because of the time (4:00 p.m.). Our waiter was friendly and made some good suggestions. My tamales were the best ever/

Just been to this wonderful Mexican restaurant visiting from Scotland. The chicken tacos were to die for as was the virgin strawberry margarita! Fabulous, friendly staff!
