7pm reservations seated promptly, without 30min wait. Friendly front staff. Restaurant is cozy, tables are extremely close to each other. Can get very loud. Food and service is great. Our waitress Sandra was fantastic most attentive along with her support staff. Another enjoyable experience!

Second time here. Will not be returning and the reason is purely because of our server. It took a while for him to come to the table. When he did, he did not introduce himself and was obviously in a hurry to move on. Did not tell us about specials, noticed them on the table. When asked if rice and brand were still included if ordering off the specials he said no but failed to tell us that if one of us ordered the 3 tacos with rice and beans included, it would be shared between both of us. We both ordered NOT off e specials so we could get rice and beans and we only received one order and were told to share. Never came back to check on our food or drinks. Made for such a bad experience.

Food was great, the al pastor tacos and cauliflower tacos were truly delicious. Beans and rice were right on point too. The service was very slow and it took us 15 minutes to get asked what we would like to have as a drink or appetizer. Our waiter later forgot about us after mentioning he would be back with more chips for our table. Then it took forever for us to get our bill.

We were seated pretty quickly although it was busy and it took a bit to get the attention of the staff. Excellent service & food ... a little loud but we had no trouble carrying on a conversation

We started with 2 beers, complimentary chips and salsa, and ordered guacamole-yum! For our mains we split an order of empanadas, 3 tacos, and rice and beans-all were delicious and nicely seasoned. Our server was great and the atmosphere upbeat, we will return!

Although the manager made up for our very long wait even with an open table reservation the response from the host was unacceptable. I’ve never had to wait for my entire party to be present especially when one person was the only one we were eating for. We waited 45 min to an hour. The last person to show up got there 20 minutes after our 2nd time checking in on the table. When I said she was on her way she said ok I’ll get the table ready. 15 minutes later she said I never went up to her. So another 15-20 minutes went by. We settled for a a very tight table but it didn’t matter at that point. It was disappointing. I’m thankful for the delicious appetizers but no one should have to wait that long when a reservation is made. On a good note the waitress was amazing and the bartender made the best margs. He took care of us during our wait.

Been here many times and loved it. But tonight everything was off from food to service. Waited for chips and salsa. At least 10 minute wait for drinks. They weren’t that busy either when we were there. Not to worry though. We will be back

First visit to celebrate my husbands birthday. Food was excellent. Noise level high! Greeter’s below average. We had a reservation and were told we would not be seated until our friends arrived. We were 10 minutes early, they arrived on time. No where to sit or stand to wait. Not cool.

This is a fun place. The decor draws you in and the wait staff is great-engaging and quite friendly. The food is average. We sent our nachos back because the tortilla chips were EXCEEDINGLY salty. Great location next to the parking lot.

This place is amazing! The food, service & atmosphere make it somewhere I just want to go to again and again. It was so impressive to see ALL the staff pitching in when any table needed something, not just the ‘I’ll get your server’ mentality of most restaurants. I truly cannot wait for my next round of tacos and great service there!

Excellent, excellent food. Service needs to be improved. I ordered a margarita - it had no flavor or liquor and wasn't frozen. I ordered a chicken enchilada with no radishes, but got a ground beef one with radishes. It's noisy in there so perhaps they didn't hear the order. I still enjoyed the evening.

Shrimp Tacos are delicious. Love their chips and salsa too. It is quite noisy in there but it does not really bother me. Had my mother and step farther with us last week and The noise was very bothersome to them . I will be back

Fat rosies in Frankfort is one of our favorite restaurants so we tried the naperville location... Margaritas were terrible. Tacos were so-so. Salsa was great.

Fat Rosie’s was a fun atmosphere with delicious tacos! We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday and was our first time visiting. The tacos tasted very fresh and good! The chips and salsa were yummy! And they had us put on fun hats and even took a group picture! If you want fun, good Mexican food, you should try Fat Rosie’s!
