The food was good, although not exceptional. Prices were fair and the portions were large. The beer was cold and the service was OK. Overall, I would be likely to stop here again, although it wouldn't be a priority.

We enjoyed a meal there. The restaurant has a rich family history, Staying on Main St. was convenient, but there were so many fast food restaurants. Rosita's has great food, and very friendly service.
