“The best in Frederick!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

My husband and I love Mexican food and have been to just about every place there is in Frederick. Santa Rosa has them all beat, especially with its Salvadorian mix. Their food is always delicious and their service is fantastic. The margaritas are also sublime! We love it there and have been there at least once a month, bringing friends and family with us when we go.

“Simply the Best in Frederick!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We have returned to Santa Rosa many times and are never disappointed. The margaritas are fantastic! The chicken stew and beef/chicken fajitas are awesome! I think we would eat here every week if we could fit it into our schedule. We will be back for sure! :)

“Wonderful food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a great place we discovered this past weekend. A small place across form the Motel 6 in Frederick, it has exceptional food. The cuisine is Mexican and Salvadorean, we think that the Salvadorean influence is strong which is a great thing. We absolutely loved the food and the waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. We can't wait to go back!

“Got carry out.”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
