“Got carry out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is a place I would recommend for those that want something different than American. I ordered Mexican carryout and loved it but it had a little spice. Slightly hot which I like. Service was very good and friendly.

“Just Right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The atmosphere is on the edge of being beautiful. The bright colored maps on the wall in my opinion should look aged to go with the rest of the decor. We were welcomed and seated immediately and given salsa and chips to tide us over while we waited for our order. We ordered the Carne Asada which was just the right portion size. We also ordered a shrimp and steak meal which was excellently spiced. The fried plantains were also excellent. We ordered flan and coffee for dessert and were disappointed that the mugs were plastic. But the coffee was good. Overall we very much enjoyed our meal and will definitely return. I highly recommend Santa Rosa because the portion sizes are reasonable as is the price.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

My husband is from El Salvador and the food we had was excellent. Its difficult to find good food at a reasonable price like this, if you're looking for a good meal for a family this is it!

“Authentic, delicious, our go-to spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

One of the best kept secrets in all of Frederick! We take all our out of towner friends here, and have yet to have a bad meal. I've noticed that there has been a surge on Friday and Saturday nights, but even still, service is always good and food always hot. Food is moderately priced, fresh, and full of flavor. The margaritas are equally delicious, as well as other staples, like the chips/salsa/guacamole, and my favorite, the skirt steak.

“Delicious, authentic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Every dish is delicious, they recently moved into a larger, nicer space in the same plaza with booths and a bar. This is the best authentic Salvadoran and Mexican food I've had. And the staff is super pleasant and most have been working there for years. They work hard to make sure you're happy.
