“Beautiful patio seating & excellent sangria ritas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

We were looking for a restaurant with a rooftop deck & were steered to Rolando's. What a hidden gem of a patio! Although you do go through the restaurant & up a few sets of stairs, it's not exactly a "rooftop" deck where you can see people walking or see the lights of the shopping strip. HOWEVER, it was lovely. It's a patio tucked into the hillside with a nice tree canopy above you. There was even a guitarist playing on Friday evening. Our server, Jarrod, was very friendly and knowledgable about the food. I must recommend the Sangria Ritas - so tasty!! Also highly recommend Jose's Quesadillas (a great suggestion from Jarrod) with the pork. These quesadillas have goat cheese - great for those lactose intolerant folks out there - and I cannot describe how amazing delicious the pork was ... melt-in-mouth! The only bummer was the guacamole - although very very tasty, it was a pretty small amount for $8-9. Overall awesome ambience (on the patio), awesome drinks, and deliciously flavorful food!

“Nice Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Great food and great service here. I would suggest that you eat on the patio or the speakeasy as the restaurant section didn't look nearly as nice. We ate on the patio on a Saturday night with some live music from a one man band. The outdoor patio area was very pleasant even on an August evening. Parking was a pain on Saturday night since we didn't have any cash and the parking lots don't accept credit cards. Hot Springs could really help the downtown area by providing some more free parking.

“Food was great but restaurant needs cleaning”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

The food was great and the staff were very helpful with the menu but the place could use a good cleaning. In fact, it seemed most of the places in town could use some sprucing up.

“You MUST have the Chicken soup!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We have eaten here several times, never disappointed. My favorite dish is the "Atkins Plate. It gives you a variety if meats. This time we ventured out and ordered the chicken soup. Needless to say we will order it again! We live the location and service as well.

“Lunch at Rolandos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Loved the decor, the food was excellent, not your typical "Mexican" restaurant; wish there were more South American restaurants like this one!
