“Good place in wierd location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We live nearby and have been going to Rosa's for a long time. Have great green salsa and delicious food. A great place to go on a regular basis to try all their menu items. It is in a run down strip mall but clean and very nice inside.

“Still Good After All These Years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Rosa's has been a favorite of our family for many years. I hadn't been there in quite while, so I was delighted to find that the food is still as good as I remembered it. The chips and salsa are made fresh. The Shrimp Veracruz platter is a fabulous, and the combination plates are so large and generous that there are always leftovers to take home.

“Bean dip is the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This place is a little better than the average. I had some chipotle ribs here that were absolutely delicious, but they don't have them all the time. Their bean dip with a smoky flavor is the best.

“Excellent food, everything else maybe not so much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Having lived in Mexico City for many years, this resturant is close to the "real thing" both in food and atmosphere. The atmosphere maybe a bit down for most gringos, but it is the real deal. Food very good, service -- well, they try -- prices are good. This place does not cater to the snow bird / tourist crowd, and that's a good thing! Leaves the best for us natives. We eat here at least monthly and do take out on occasion as well.

“the real deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Atmosphere is not good, the Mexican food is. As a long-time gringo resident of Mexico City who also lives in Mesa, I can say that this resturant is about as close to "real" Mexican food as you can find in the Phoenix area.
