“Very Nice Family Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We went to this restaurant with extended family - a group of about 12 people - because it was conveniently located for us to meet, though none of us live in Frederick.

I was very pleased with the experience. The food was excellent. (I had the whole, fried tilapia.) The service was very good. And the prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend this place.

“Our go-to Mexican/Latin restaurant in Frederick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We've been to several Latin/Mexican restaurants in Frederick and Santa Rosa is our favorite. Good food, good service. I'll still keep searching for a place with the Tex/Mex food I rememeber from home in NM but until I find it here, Santa Rosa is my first choice.

“Really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Santa Rosa has been around for many years. They started out small near K-Mart on Rt 40 with really good food, personable service, and low prices. A few years ago, they moved to a larger place nearby and have managed to keep up the quality very nicely. The place is much more up-scale in appearance, but they still cook the same good food. They also have at least double the competition now, but seem to be holding their own.
You can pick anything on the menu and it will come out very well. Be sure to tell your waiter/waitress how spicy-hot you like it and they will get very close. You can also talk them into substitutes.
Get whatever you like, but don't forget the plantains. One of the first places in Frederick to offer good plantains!

“If you want real Mexican and Salvadorian food this is the place to be!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Great food and great service! Their papusa and tacos are amazing!! Along with their fajitas and their shrimp dishes! Chips and salsa are complimentary and quite tasty! Better than any "mexican" restaurant out there...that shall rename nameless but you know who I'm talking about. Overall this place is amazing and will always go there for great authentic food!
