We've been to Rosas a few times with good experience. This time I had reservations for 6. When we arrived on time, the guy at the podium waved us toward a table set for 5. I retrieved an extra chair and place settings myself. No one approached us to take our orders till we went back to the "guy at... More

Shopping center location was convenient and exterior appearance was nice and vibrant. Menu offered a couple of unique specialties. Prices were a little higher than the delivered product would warrant. Salsa was delicious although the guac was very bland. The place was busy and the wait staff was attentive enough Expensive bottled beer reinforced the miss on value.

Third time in ten years. This place is very popular with the locals. It is always busy; it's in the busy area of Ft Lowell n Campbell. Rosa's is just not as good as it used to be. The restaurant is old (70s) and while the traditional Mex decor is delightfully rustic you go into the restroom or peek into... More

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
