Book your next event with us
The service was outstanding and the food?!? Those were some of the best tacos I’ve ever had!!!! We’ll Andy Ellis back!!!
Great food and service! Small restaurant, very crowded, most seating is at high top tables at bar, no where to wait for a table other than next to all the tables of people. Great for everyday dining. Food was delicious and big portions.
Absolutely fantastic meal. The entire staff was great, best experience in Naperville hands down
Great food and service
Food was great as always. Only disappointment was not getting checked in as a reservation on Open Table . I thought he clicked on it when I gave him my name
Really enjoyed our meal. Large portions, one entree could have satisfied both of us, Highly recommend this restaurant.
Service was slow and there were a few errors with our order
We had a great time and will definitely be back. The wait was longer than usual so they took care of us with drinks which is service you rarely come across. Food was good as was the atmosphere.
Food was room temperature & had to be returned. No one apologized. There was so much mole that you couldn’t taste the chicken in the enchilada - there were lumps that I presume were chicken. I wasn’t impressed and won’t return.
I would recommend this restaurant to a friend, I highly recommend the fish tacos. Great environment, but overpriced for OK food.
We had a reservation for 7:30 on Saturday night in downtown Naperville, usually a very busy time! Understatement at this place! It's jammed, wall to wall people, every table taken and the staff running like crazy. But they're a well oiled machine. We were able to grab 4 seats at the bar and staff was soo friendly and accommodating that we ate there! They were awesome, worked with us, provided samples, Tequila, etc. Great time, will definitely be back sooner this time!
Our server Darwin took very good care of us. He did a great job recommending the right tequila to have in our guava margaritas- and they were fantastic. The food was great as well. We were seated right away too. Great night!
It was so much fun and there was so many choices. Great staff and Our server helped us with specials and flavors! Great Time Had by Me, My Son and His Girlfriend. I'll be bringing people back real soon!
Good food and good service.
Excellent service and food! And seeing how it was New Years Eve, we got a complimentary tequila "mini-shot"! Very thoughtful!
Food was good
Find a reason to eat here. It’s so fun and DELICIOUS too!
Fun place to hangout on a Sunday afternoon. Great tacos, but the margarita was so-so.
Servers are excellent!!
Delicious food. LOTS of ice in my margarita
:( Server was very good. Bar area (understandably) very loud on Saturday night. Tables so close though, that I could barely leave my seat without bumping up against another table.
Scott Harris has a winner here. We had been to Fat Rosie’s in Frankfort and liked it.
We visited the Naperville restaurant on Friday December 27 and it was busy, we were seated after our 7:30 reservation but the employees at the bar made it easy to overlook the wait.
In Naperville the food is pretty much the same but the service is much more than what you would expect at a Mexican cantina at far better than you should expect at this price point. From the bartenders to the runners, everyone was right on the spot. Our waitress, Sandra, knew and explained the menu well, was attentive but not intrusive.
I have to credit the manager with running a great operation. The service was by far better than you would expect at this price.
We will return soon
Our server was excellent as was the food and drinks. Very crowded however and were running about 20-25 mins behind on reservations so that left quite a few people standing around making the entry way and tables close by very cramped.
Best chips and salsa around!!
My husband and I took 2 of our grown children here on December 27th. With our son being in the military (deploying soon) it was important to have a special time. Rudy and our server Darwin absolutely made our day amazing. The food was delicious, hot, and prompt. The drinks were top notch as well. Rudy checked on us several times to make sure things were going well as did Darwin. Although it is a bit of a drive from the south end of Naperville, we will most definitely be returning soon. Growing up in Naperville, I have seen restaurants come and go. This one is a keeper. Thank you Rudy and Darwin. We are so grateful.
Rudy and the staff were amazing. We had a company lunch last minute and they accommodated us and made sure that everyone’s needs were met even with special dietary restrictions.
Amazing staff food and always a great experience. Restrooms are hilarious. Especially women’s!
We sat at the bar for dinner. Bartender was busy but very attentive. Calamari salad was excellent - big enough to split.
The restaurant is very loud party atmosphere, good food and drinks. Strawberry jalapeño margarita is excellenr
Love this restaurant for a casual dinner. Great food and service!
Great food and service. Nice atmosphere. Good value.
Greeting was not very welcoming when they initially thought I didn’t have a reservation (I did).
Saturday 6:30pm seated promptly, friendly front staff. Reservations are Highly recommended, long wait without. Very intimate seating, Loud energetic atmosphere, fun. Great food & service. Our waiter Darwin was most attentive. Another fantastic dining experience.
Went at 5:30 with a reservation. It was busy so we got seated at ~5:50. Party of 4.
Service was good, attentive. Enjoyed the food and drinks. The bus person though, kept coming by to remove plates with food still on them, very eager to get us moving. On the 3rd round of him coming by he even took my half finished mojito before I noticed it was gone.
Felt like they wanted us out as soon as possible. By that point though, there was no waiting so no need to rush people...may have just been an overzealous bus person. OR, mgmt pushes them to do that.
I love this restaurant but last night the servers were a bit too aggressive in clearing dishes - it seemed they were in a big hurry to clear the table while we were still eating!
Fat Rosies is primarily a bar first and restaurant second. The drinks are great, food is that of good pub grub. If they decide to expand the space & menu, I could see it become a real great place to have lunch or dinner.
We were celebrating two birthdays among four total. The staff was great, bringing us sombreros and an off-menu taco to try. They also brought us birthday treats. And all of the food & the drinks were delicious!
Delicious food and kind servers!
We made reservations and are glad we did. It was very very crowded. The entrance and hostess station are on top of each other so anybody waiting is kind of waiting on top of diners closest to the door. The food was great. We had a regular size steak burrito (meat very tender and flavorful but could’ve used a little more meat), and 3 types of tacos all of which were delicious, one margarita and one coke. The High top bar tables are very close together but there’s so much going on around you it wasn’t any kind of nuisance for privacy or antyhing. Our service was fast with several check backs-terrific and we left generous tip because of it. The environment is very festive. I heard a rumor we are getting one in Elmhurst and it’s what prompted us to go to Naperville so I could share with my husband. I have been to the Naperville one once before recently.
Just an okay taco joint. Not a lot of options to choose from. The fajitas was mostly onions. The chips and salsa were awesome though.
Food was good, ambiance was fun, but the service was terrible. We waited for 15 minutes after being seated and finally had to go ask for a wait staff to take an order. Then the manager gave us drinks and guacamole to apologize but then charged us for it! Totally unacceptable.
The atmosphere is energetic and fun! We've really loved all of our meals and there drinks are very tasty. I would highly recommend this place! :)
This was our first time at Fat Rosie's in Naperville. We had reservations and they sat us right on time. The waiters were very attentive to our needs. The food was outstanding. We would definitely go back!
