Great Mexican food!

I really like Rosie's and I was very surprised to find that this place may be even better and it's open on Sundays.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went with a large group of people and although the ambiance and service was great the fish taco's were horrendous. You could tell the fish (sticks) was heavily breaded and of the frozen variety. For the price charged couldn't they at least use fresh product.

Love the ambiance of this particular establishment, very rustic Mexican Vibe.... Also the ice-cream after your meal is an added bonus!

The food was delicious. We had a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed there food. From being seated, the waiter, the food, and paying for our food was very good experience. I would recommend this restaurant to other people.

I have eaten here several times and have not yet found a dish that blew my mind. I love the over flowing flavors of Mexican cuisine however this place is lacking. I did enjoy the chips and salsa as well as the ice cream. Will give it another shot and order something different.

Don't let a packed parking lot scare you away - the wait is never as long as they say. Good selection and a helpful mature wait staff will help with special orders. Try the black bean soup! Their chicken fajitas are a step above typical Tex Mex. ... Oh, and free ice cream .. just ask.

We eat here pretty often and the food is consistently good. Most of the staff members are friendly, although some appear to be overwhelmed. The restaurant is fast paced and loud.

Great food. Normal Mexican fare but done well. The lunch combo platters are very reasonable. Each of our 5 diners got something different and everyone loved their selection. The only complaint was that we all agreed the rice was a bit subpar.

We arrived about 5:30 on a Saturday night and we were seated in about 15 minutes. The service was excellent and so was the food. The guacamole and marguerites were excellent! We all had something different and we were all pleased. The chile rellenos had raisins and almonds..my husband really liked them. Great place to start the holiday week! We... More
