Service was very slow. After close to a 15 minute wait without seeing a serving the server apologized to us.

We were given an order of guacamole on the house to make up for the wait. Nice touch.

The margaritas were tasty. However the tacos/tostadas were pretty nasty. The meat was dried out and the octopus tasted like a tire.

It being 8pm at night and the initial delay of 15 minutes without a server we didn't complain about the food. We just wanted to go home at that point.

Very disappointing experience as we have been to the Schaumburg location and had a fantastic experience.

Excellent but thought making reservations a little in advance would be seated inside not out in tent. Don't get me wrong, food and service overall very good but would of enjoyed the ambience of being inside since I brought someone that had never been there before. I realize it's tough on restaurants and just was hoping to be inside

Food was delicious, drinks were tasty and you could definitely taste the alcohol, there just weren't enough shrimp in the fajitas! Our server was awesome. Don't forget dessert. We had Fat Rosie's Sloppy Sundae! Absolutely perfecto!

Hola RichA, Thank you so much for this amazing review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. I will definitely speak with our chef about the portion of shrimp for the fajitas. Personally, I think the homemade churros really make all the difference in the Sloppy Sundae! YUM! See you soon! Best, Caroline Manager and Event Coordinator

Had a great time. As much as COVID sucks, it did wonders for this restaurants noise level. I love everything about this place except its always so loud. Now with the tables spread apart and the outdoor seating, inside was very pleasant!

We waited for a very long time for service. People that came in 10 minutes after us received service and their chips and drinks before us. When we asked about chips they said corporate policy was to get drink before chips and table next to us got chips before drinks. We come here often and I was very disappointed.

We had reservations and were told we could sit on the patio immediately, or wait 20 minutes for an inside table. The patio had heaters, but none were lit. We decided to wait for an inside table and got one within less than 20 minutes. It was right by the door and the draft was terrible due to people entering and approaching the hostess station as well as servers heading out to the tent area. Many patrons stood in line right next to our table, and all wore masks. In the meantime, the heaters on the patio were lit. I think it was warmer out there than at our table. The food was ok. The service ok, too. I’ve had much better experiences at Fat Rosies. I will not return until Covid is over.

Bad placement of outdoor table. Keep getting slammed by servers going in And out of patio door and table was slanted on sidewalk. Improve outdoor seating

We have been to the Frankfort location MANY times- The food is always really good. This experience wasn’t very good- Our waiter was a little disappointing- he didn’t bring our food the way we ordered it, and didn’t check on us frequently- we had 4 meals (3 taco dinners and 1 enchiladas dinner) and they gave us the rice and beans in very small bowls in the center of the table (family style) but it wasn’t enough rice for all the plates. Again- hard to get the waiter to bring more, so we didn’t get any additional:(
I think most people would prefer their own rice and beans on their plate , like my enchiladas dinner had. But I do have to say- even on my enchiladas plate - I barely had any rice! They need to step it up on the rice and beans- most people would agree that the rice is just as important as the main entree- when you order Mexican food , you want the entire experience.
Please work on the portion size Fat Rosie Frankfort.
We will try again soon! Thanks
