Rosa Maria's on Sierra is a lone gem in a city that has its challenges. After all, San Bernardino just topped the list of worst dining in the country. And the city is currently in bankruptcy proceedings. So maybe that is why Rosa Maria's is such an important part of life there. The area needs more restaurants this, staying true to their great food and a winning brand.

On our journeys from Orange County to Lake Arrowhead, we often call ahead for our order to be pickup up. No need to leave your name, they assign a number to your order for efficiency. Burritos are filled in soft, doughy flour tortillas. Call your favorite fillings and it is made to order. Meat, rice and cheese for me, but their beans are tasty too. At the window, be sure to ask for three or four hot sauces for each burrito. It is the best sauce on the planet.

Back in the car, the eating ritual begins. Bite, add sauce, bite again, burn, add sauce, bite and repeat. It is take out as it should be. Thank you Rosa Maria's for being there.

The Rosa Maria's on Sierra Way is no longer a drive-thru, but you can call in your order then go pick it up. There is no indoor seating at this restaurant, it is all outdoors. That's okay when the weather is reasonable, otherwise the concrete benches and the patio are fine. There is another restaurant on Boulder in Highland, which has indoor seating, but serves same food.
This restaurant has been popular for years. The salsa is made by the restaurant and could be purchased separately, if you want to take some home. They have meals or a la carte items. I usually have tacos, which to me are delicious. Happy with this place and hope it never goes away.

I've been coming here for the last 20yrs or so, the tacos are as good as it is now, as well when I first bought one, when I was a teenager. The tacos are fried, crispy shells, lots of good tasting meat, lettuce, and a good helping of cheese!!!!! My friends tells me that they make great burritos too!!!! The prices are very reasonable, and affordable! Highly recommended!!!!!

A locals favorite. My favorite burrito is the meat, bean, cheese with extra cheese, but really any of them are good. The chile relleano burrito is also tops - chile relleno, chile verde, wrapped in a homemade tortilla that is unlike any you can find anywhere else. I have been eating here for 20+ years and the quality has not changed. More than one location now, but they all have the same food. It is primarily a take-out joint, but the quality rarely wavers. Burritos are moe than your typical take-out place, but the quality makes it worth it! Tacos also good, but oh, man... the burittos!
