“Good food, great location”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This is a great location in Old Town Temecula. There is outdoor seating which offers some protection from the sun. The restaurant is a slight step above fast food. You order at the counter, stand there until your name is called, but listen closely because the speaker is unintelligible. It sounds like the teacher from the Peanuts cartoons. The food is pretty good. It is a nice, inexpensive lunch stop as you are walking around Old Town.

“Old Town Authentic”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

If you want Mexican Food and you are willing to give up some comfort, this is the place. The food is excellent! I suggest the Family Meal which is a crowd pleaser with chips, guac, 3 kinds of meat & tortillas. The only down side to this spot is the tight conditions however, it is a historical building. If the weather is right, sit outside and watch all the people. It sit across from the Bank which is also Mexican Food and down the Street from Rosas Tortilla Factory (both of which are also very good - but different) I would suggest a trip across the Street to the Olive Company and down the street to the Root Beer Place!

“Location is great, food disappointing”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

You couldn't buy a better location in Temecula, this little Restaraunt is on the corner of Main Street and old town front street but don't let the address fool you, there is nothing special going on in here. You order at a counter like some fast good burger joint and there is NO atmosphere. I was sure I was going to be disappointed when I walked inside but had made my choice and it was getting late. Nothing about this was good expect where I was able to sit and watch what else was going on in town. Not a horrible experience but definitely nowhere I'd recommend or send a friend.

“Excellent Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Eat excellent quality Mexican food in Old Town Temecula..! Dine inside or outside, or take it with you. Although there are several choices in this area to get good Mexican, we prefer Rosa's because of their consistent good taste and reasonable prices. The salsa choices range from very mild to spicy, and the tortilla chips are crisp and fresh. The burritos are a whole meal in themselves because of their large size! Yummmmmmm! DGB

“Average review is being kind...”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Just barely gets a average rating from me.....not sure what people see in this place, certainly no ones goes there for the gourmet food. I was disappointed since it was recommended to me by a friend. I have had much better Mex food in Virginia, which is a lot further away from Mexico than here.
