This is my go to place for a quick and good Mexican food restaurant. Nothing fancy, just good food, authentic and always consistent. Chimichangas (shredded beef or beans) are always great, you have to order rice and beans as an extra $ add on, so don't forget, a little annoying. The Cocido soup (very large bowl) is excellent, when they... More

Very authentic Mexican food and attentive staff. The prices are reasonable and all dishes on our table were delicious. We started with the Cheese Crisp. It's huge and so good! My cheese enchiladas were some of the best that I have ever had!

I went on Saturday night by myself for dinner real quick waiting on friends to get dressed to go out. This is a nice place in a small shopping center, good seating and spirited place. The two gentleman who I think own it are very nice. They make a really good margarita and the food is very good. I had... More

I visit this place when I'm in the mood for some good affordable Mexican food. Their chile rellenos are quite huge. Only drawback is that a lot of their sauces seem to have a garlic base in it.

Rosa's has the feel of an authentic Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious. I ordered the chimi enchilada style and it was very good. My companion had the cheese enchiladas and he loved them as well. We have never had a bad meal here and I love to take my out of town guests to Rosa's for a real Mexican... More

Went here for dinner from a recommendation of a friend and we were staying not to far from here. The atmosphere inside is authentic. We shared a combo plate - along with the chips and salsa that you get when you sit down this was plenty for 2 of us. We had the Chili Relleno and Shredded Beef Taco. The... More

Rosa's is located in a strip mall, but don't let its underwhelming exterior stop you from eating there. Picking from the extensive menu was hard but we ended up with fajitas and margaritas and were not disappointed. It was busy even at 6pm on a Tuesday, but service was efficient. Recommended, especially if you want to eat local (not tourist)... More

Absolutely over priced! There was no sign of a server on a very busy night. $10 chimichanga plate comes with no beans or rice. Ordered 2 sodas and a kids lemonade. Almost $4 each and did not get a refill. They also do not have a kids menu at all. I will not be going back.

We really enjoyed our night at Rosa's. The food was delicious and the "off the tourist track" was really appreciated. An extensive menu, friendly staff and good food. Oh yes, the marguerites were good too!

The food is always flavorful and authentic, not weakened for Northern or Eastern tastes. Our family loves the enchiladas, tamales, and chimichangas. The staff are always friendly, even those with limited English. Our family (grandparents to great-grandkids) goes here more than any other restaurant..
