If you love Texas style Mexican food, then this is the only place in East Tennessee to get it. It is BY FAR the best Mexican food out here and we have tried them all. We moved here from Texas 9 years ago and we missed Tex Mex so so bad until we found Rosarito's. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE & eat there every week.

We ate here for the first time this afternoon. We sat in a booth in the bar and did have to wait a while before anyone greeted us, they may have been short. Once our server stopped by, he was great. The food was excellent. You get a basket of fresh warm chips and a rounder of salsa, carrots/celery, and spicy ranch dip. I had the steak fajitas and hubby had combo plate. The steak was tender and flavorful. Everything was severed hot and fresh. Drink specials were awesome! $2.99 for a good size frozen strawberry margarita. We had a coupon for a free dessert and choose the fried ice cream. Very decadent! Run not walk to this great restaurant!

I was pleased to find an actual GREAT Mexican restaurant in Knoxville. Food was really good and fresh. Chicken quesadilla was superb. When you arrive at your table, they bring you not only salsa and chips, but a small vegetable bowl (carrots and celery with spicy ranch). Service was friendly and very fast. The happy hour Margarita for $3.99 was a great deal and yummy.
The churros for dessert seemed a bit overpriced-- until the plate arrived. You get 6 fresh churros with ice cream, garnished with whipped cream, strawberries and chocolate syrup.
Will definitely return.

This hasn't been open for very long, so we finally opted to eat there. There were three in our party and everyone got something different: Pollo Loco, Chalupas, and Tacos de Carne Asada. The Pollo an Tacos had no complaints but my husband had the Chalupas and thought they were bland (nothing a little salsa couldn't cure). Before your meal, they bring out (complimentary) chips with Salsa, Jalapeno Ranch Dip and some raw veggie for dipping. Two in our party has the Margaritas (tasty but not much Tequila). Overall, the meal was very good.
