“Popular Mexican restaurant but not outstanding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Rosa's always has a crowd, presumably because of modest prices, decent food and fast service. The ample menu variety will satisfy most customers, and the more "New Mexico" style of cuisine those who prefer a more authentic Northern Mexican over Tex-Mex. The restaurant has a pleasing decor appropriate to the style of food, with an amply stocked "fixings" bar.

Ordering is at the counter, but the food is ready and your number called quite quickly. The food is above average, but be prepared to pay for chips and salsa - an included "extra" in almost any other Mexican restaurant. Both the fresh hot flour tortillas and sopapillas are very good, and fresh tortillas are offered for sale to take home.

“Good, fast Tex Mex for big families”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

Rosa's is perfect balance of good Tex Mex without thethe price of a full sit down and much better than the national chains.

The best deal for a big family/group is Family Fiesta platter. Served family styles you get big servings of meat, tortillas, beans and rice. With friends and a few Corona's you can feed six for less than $50.

Cheap food that doesn't taste cheap. Taco Tuesdays are a must.
