Decent Mexican Food

Food was decent here and the service great. Has a chain-like feel and food is a bit more "Americanized" vs. being authentic Mexican.

Rosie's is as good as it gets in Huntsville. Great food, cold beer and awesome drinks. Can be a little noisy but the atmosphere is still pleasant.

Food is lacking in flavor. Ground beef seems to have absolutely no seasoning. Drinks are good, especially Mambo Taxi, and service is quick. Can get tastier and less expensive food at other restaurants like El Coyote and El Olmeca, to name a few.

Rosie's serves great Mexican food at an affordable price. I love dining on the patio when the weather is nice. The decor and atmosphere at Rosie's is among the best in Huntsville.
