great restaurant

Came here at the recommendation of some of the staff at the Arizona Inn. It is a family run spot. My husband ordered a soup which he loved. The salsa served with chips was a little too hot for me, so the really nice waiter brought a tomato sauce bowl for me to blend with the salsa to cut it... read more

The place seems pretty popular with locals. Chips and salsa were good but guacamole not so much. The food (chicken enchiladas, shrimp fajitas) is pretty standard fare Mexican. The prices a little high but portion sizes were very generous. Service was very good- friendly and attentive.

Though Rosa's was PACKED when we got there, our party of 2 didn't wait TOO long...the food here is just unbeatable. I always take my visiting friends and family here when they ask for Mexican food. My BEST advice: HAVE SOME SOPAPILLAS!!

My family has been going to Rosas for as long as I can remember. The chips and salsa are great, the cheese crisps are wonderful, the margaritas cant be beat, and everything else our party of 7 ordered was spot on. Now that we live in Illinois we look forward to Rosas every time we visit Tucson.

We had heard a lot of great things about this place and they do have good stiff margaritas, good guacamole and lightly fried chips but I will never, ever go here again. My partner found a big piece of broken glass in his taco. When he notified our server, he took it away, along with the plate, then a few... More

We wanted Mexican food and ended up ar Rosa's. Our meal was fine, and the service was good. There was nothing extra special about the food, however, which explains the three star rating. If Rosa's were on the East Coast, it might have gotten a fourth star. For the record, my companions would have given Rosa's four stars. All of... More

We stopped in for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. It has a modest exterior, but is beautifully painted and decorated inside. We had quesadilla and tacos; look for the tacos with home-made, rather than pre-made shells. Everything was fresh, home-made and delicious!

Loved Rosa's! Authentic family owned restaurant and great food! The pricing is very affordable, great service and quick too. A hidden gem in the strip mall on Campbell/Ft Lowell!

My family has eaten at Rosa's since moving here in 1999, the service has always been excellent, the atmosphere charming, and the food delicious. This family has kept Tucson fed and satisfied for many years. I recommend Rosa's to all visitors, and anytime family comes into town it is a must for them to come to this restaurant.
