I lunched in this restaurant on my way back from Alligator Farm. Very authentic and good Mexican cooking. I often wonder why there are not more Mexican restaurants in England. Perhaps they overdo the surroundings instead of concentrating on good Mexican food. Rosita's cook should come and show them how. Filling and just right spice wise. Very good value as... More

The food is decent. Clean property. A generic Mexican restaurant. Price is fair though, and there is plenty of food in a plate.

Don't get me wrong, it looks like a hole-in-the-wall place at first glance. Well, it IS a hole in the wall, but a darned good one. Probably the best Mexican food I've had outside of Los Angeles or Tijiuana. Don't go in there for the decor, it's lit like a cafeteria, but the food is 4- or 5-star.

Average food, noisy, women's toilet broken , cleanliness could use some work, special 50% higher than other entrees and not priced on board.

Best Mexican food south of Kendall, worth the trip for the relaxing atmosphere and great service. DO NOT leave without some food to go back home with!

Great authentic Mexican food. The tacos and flautas were scrumptious. The prices are very reasonable. The restaurant was clean. The service friendly. They serve breakfast too which I thought was cool. The parking is a little frustrating. You can park right in front of the building where the white no parking stripes are painted. It seemed to be what everyone... More

Not fast food like, just original Mexican food like we had on our trips in Mexico. Really big portions. Could only finish half.

A real Mexican family kitchen! Too many so called Mexican restaurant have indigestable food. Not here. The enchiladas are the best along with the sopas, burritos, nachos, chilaquilles. I highly recommend the beef or shrimp soups.

Went with a group of 4. Service was ok, not bad, but not great. Salsa was bland. 2 of the guys had chicken fajitas and they said they were good. I had chicken enchiladas, they were ok, but lacked flavor I have had better. And my bf had beef chimmichangas, he said the sauce was ok, but there was not... More

No frills Mexican food, nice staff, good service, but the food lacked the "OOmph" that you find in Mexican food. I was disappointed because after tasting the fresh corn chips and the delicious spicy salsa I was ready to be blown away. On my first visit I ordered the beef chimichangas, way too greasy, rice was under cooked, re-fried beans... More
