It was my choice for a birthday dinner. The Chili Rellenos set the bar for us on how they should be
served. Really great. But if it had been the weekend, i would have had the red menudo. My favorite
dish there. Not expensive, for three of us with multiple drinks, 60.00 + tip.

Rosa's is a favorite with Tucsonans. It's nothing fancy, just good food for a good price. Their salsa is the BEST in town--and has won "Best of Tucson" many years. My favorite is the green chili cheese crisp--to put salsa on! Their soups are all excellent and the green chili is the best in town. Love it! tc

This is a small family owned Mexican Rest. located in the rear of a small strip mall on the corner or Ft. Lowell and Campbell Ave. in Tucson, Arizona. The salsa is by far the BEST Mexican Salsa in Tucson. The cheese crisp is to die for. All the entres are large and scrumptious. The fare is very reasonable. The service needs a little help but the family seems to be working on that issue. Friendliness is not a virtue at this place but is overwhelmend by the food.

Rosas is our regular haunt. The food is extremely good. Also, very good choices for a vegetarian (which I am). The margaritas are awesome. Please try their sopapilla's as well.

The staff is excellent save the one owner lady. She always seems grumpy!!..

If you go on the weekends make sure you are there early, it sometimes gets crowded to the point of long lines outside.

If you are in Tucson, don't miss eating here.

I love their carne seca enchiladas; my husband loves the red chili. My whole family loves the sopapillas, and you will want to take a picture of them if you order them. We always take out of town guests there for authentic Mexican food. We used to love the margaritas, butThey have changed how they make them and they aren't good at all anymore. Skip them. The limeade is good or have a beer.
