It took almost eleven years after moving to the Phoenix Southeast Valley to find a Mexican Restaurant worthy of a 5 star rating. I visited Rosita's Place with a friend a couple of years ago and the food blew my mind. The most authentic and tasty Mexican food I've ever eaten. Since then, I've taken my family there more times...

This place truly could be, one of the best Mexican restaurants in the valley. This place was recommended to one of our chefs, and his recommendation did not disappoint. Staff was very polite, attentive, establishment clean, and easy to find with plenty of parking and seating inside. The ONLY down side, is that this neighborhood is not the best of... More

4 of us ate lunch here and all had a variation of their burrito. Everyone love it! They were packed with meat, and came with beans and sauce on the side. Service was fast and the atmosphere was wonderful.

Food very good and really authentic - in an area near the airport that is a little rough - but food, prices and service all excellent

I first went to this restaurant over 10 years ago and still coming back. I go here whenever I have out of town visitors who want to taste the "real" Mexican food. It is nothing fancy just the typical family owned and operated business. My usual is the chile relleno. It is made just perfect with the blend of cheese.... More

Rosita's is s great Mexican food joint. The pave is always busy during the lunch hour rush. I eat here probably one a month. Rosita is usually here to greet customers at the door and seat them. The atmosphere is typically lively. Great chips and salsa and great service as well. It can take a little bit of time to... More

This local favorite was recommended by several friends who live in the area. We had tacos, quesadillas, and enchiladas. The chips were good and the salsa very hot.

We went with a family of four and had a great meal at dinner time, which included an item from the breakfast menu that our Mexican native guest was very pleased with. He asked it to be customized to include eggs, potato and chorizo and he thought it was great. Will go again.

While doing some shopping we asked for a recommendation for a place for dinner. They recommended Rosita's Place, the food was excellent the service was great and the Mexican food was authentic. It was a terrific stop. Not fancy but great food.
