This restaurant is not in a great area of town (there may not BE any great areas of town, from what we saw), but it is an excellent place to eat, with Mexican and Soutwestern dishes prepared wonderfully. We had a scrumptious chicken enchilada, which...More

Dark and rather dreary. Service was ok. Food was ok. I think the overall atmosphere takes away from your dining experience. We only have visited once, just not sure we want to return. We like Tex-mex but not sure where to try it in Barstow.

The only time we eat here is when we have to because of a banquet or other gathering. The Mexican food is below average and the garlic ranch dressing is awful. It would be my last choice of places to have a meal in Barstow.

Rositas is a family owned business with a great selection of food and famous Margaritas. Great place for weddings, receptions, birthday parties, graduations, business meetings. They have the main restaurant, The Rosa room w/ bar, a huge ballroom w/stage and full bar. Also have catering.

Glad we ate here. We were recommended to eat here from the owner of the Route 66 hotel and so glad we did. The waitress was so friendly. Food was large in serving size and very filling. Sangria was delicious.

My husband and I are traveling from our daughter's home in CA to our home in PA. We stopped for a night at a hotel in Barstow and the hotel's information book had many restaurants listed. We were hungry for Mexican food, so Rosita's stood...More

Four of us were on our way to Laughlin a couple Sunday's back and stopped in Barstow for lunch right around 11 AM. Our first choice was closed so we drove west down Route 66 a bit and ran across Rosita's. It looked intimidating at...More

We have been stopping in Barstow twice a year for 15 years and just found this excellent Mexican restaurant. I'm picky about my Mexican food and this is on top. The service was very good. Enchiladas and bean choices great. We will not only recommend...More
