We've been going to Rosa's for years. We went to college in Abilene, so we had Rosa's long before they came to the Dallas or Austin areas. We were so excited about the one here in Cedar Park was opening and are not disappointed. We go a few times a month and are always happy with the food. The chicken... More

It's our first time here. The staff are very nice and accommodating. One of the best tacos that I have tried and the price is reasonable. I like the set up and decorations in the restaurant, very colorful. Will definitely go back here again.

When you're just hungry for tacos, but you want a nicer atmosphere than a fast food place , and better quality, try Rosa 's

Very good for fast, easy, cheap food for a family! Nothing fancy. Very good homemade tortillas too! I recommend any of their tacos! They have inside & outside seating and counter service or drive thru.

Food is always good, fresh, fast. It is budget tex-mex. Plates are huge. They do not scrimp. They have different specials each day.

I like this place! Good tamales, and just about everything else on the menu. Very good tortillas! I love it all. Not a fancy place but lots of cheap food. Will satisfy your craven for Mexican Food.

This is not a knock on this location, but I have never really understood the cult status attached to Rosa's by people from West Texas. That includes my own family members. A first time visitor will usually find as they stand in line that the menu seems like to much to choose from. I made the mistake at this location... More

It is average when put in a group that includes Taco Bell and Taco Cabana. It is NOT average when put up against "normal" Mexican Restaurants. This is fast food and the food is average. Will not be driving into this parking lot for a while.

I'd driven by Rosa's Cafe for several years before trying it on a whim. I'd previously assumed it was just another in a string of bad tex-mex joints along highway 1431. Oh, was I wrong! Yes, it's a HUGE space inside and yes, their menu is way too big -- but everything I've tried over the past several months has... More

The dinner plates are okay however you can save a lot of money by creating your a la cart order. I normally go to the drive-through, order a dozen tortillas, quart of rice and court of beans. I make tacos at home with the rice and beans and some times add cheese from home. Their salsa is a good addition... More
