“Okay Mexican in Huntsville...there is better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Fairly decent Mexican in Huntsville. I know the locals love this place but really.....this is pretty generic Mexican. Nothing too exciting but all tastes good.

The margaritas are okay...again nothing special.

A good place for Mexican if in the area.

“Top-Notch Mexican food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Wonderful place to meet for lunch with friends. Outdoor porches are relaxing in warm weather ; inside is cozy in Winter. Good food and service. As with most Mexican food, if you like it- you'll really like it!

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Rosie's has good Tex-Mex food and nice fun atmosphere. I've always had good service even during their busy times or when I go with a large group.

“Definitely one of the top places in Huntsville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

I've been eating at Rosie's for years. WAY before the move...probably six or seven years. The key to Rosie's success is consistency. The service is ALWAYS very good to excellent, the food alway served hot, the food is always prepared the same as before, and it's always good.

The tortilla's are make/cooked in house and they are probably the best I've ever eaten. So is the Chicken soft taco. It's huge and it's one of their best items. The chicken enchilada is the best I've ever eaten as well. Tonight I got the new shrimp tacos. Absolutely one of the best meals I've ever eaten in a Mexican restaurant. We also get the chicken/steak fajitas from time to time. They are EXCELLENT and completely different than the typical fajitas you'll get from your typical same old song and dance Mexican restaurant. You'll never eat it all either! A PILE of food!

No....Rosie's is not a "five star" restaurant. But for the area, you'll be hard pressed to do any better and in my opinion Rosie's is one of the best and most consistent places to eat in the Huntsville area.

“You can't beat it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012 via mobile

Unbelievable service and quality food every time. Steak fajitas for one are enough for two and queso blanco is good.
