Food was amazing. So fresh and tasty. Our waitress sandy was awesome! Our drinks were always full and she was always readily available never had to look for her. She knew the menu and made recommendations that were on point! Sandy was outstanding!!!! We will always be sure to ask for her. She made my daughter's birthday a memorable one!

Reservation for 10 was ready upon arrival on a Saturday evening. The margaritas were delicious. Even the house margaritas were hand made, not from a pitcher or a tap. The food was good. We ordered many different items between us and everyone was pleased. There were 4 kids in our group who also enjoyed their food. They were able to have fun talking and playing games with one another because it is a relatively noisy place. I wouldn’t expect anything else from a ‘cantina’. The service was very good. The place was busy, but not huge lines to be seated. Would definitely go back.

I love coming here. The food is usually excellent but the steak I ordered was burnt and gross. That does not stop me from coming here though. I just won't order the steak again.

Server was attentive
Food was fair
Not much taste and absolutely no appeal to the eyes.
Just stuff thrown on a plate
Moes and salsalitas are even better
Oh well will not be coming back

We party of 8 had made reservation for 7PM on Mother's day. It was extremely busy and thinking we made the reservation we arrived at Rosalita's on time 10 minutes before 7PM only to be given table at around 7:30PM. Overall the food quality and preparation was good considering it was Mother's day but very disappointed with the fact that they were not able to give us table at our reserved time. The wait staff in front should be able to handle influx of customers effectively.

Kitchen made mistake in the order. When replaced it they didn’t make new. I ordered veg salad but it came with shrimp. To replace the order, kitchen removed shrimp from the plate and brought same plate back.
I never trust the restaurant anymore.

Very nice Mexican restaurant. Courteous service, good food, nice selection of Margaritas and beer. The decor is nice and the atmosphere (at least on a Saturday evening) was festive and fun. The chips are warm and crisp and the spicy salsa is just right.

We were six adults and two children for Saturday lunch. All eight loved their meals.
One in our party was Gluten Free and he was easily accommodated. The food and service
were both great. From entree to dessert everyone was pleased.

Overall I had an okay experience at the restaurant. The thing that greatly impacted my experience was that we were seated at a table which was not cleaned off and had crumbs from a prior guest that was dining there. When the bus boy came to clean it off he carelessly wiped the table, spreading all of the crumbs into our laps. There was no silverware... and we were not given it until we asked for it after our main dish was brought out to us. Two of the drinks that were brought to us were made incorrectly. Definitely expected a little more attentiveness and care with the customer service. However, the food came out good.

For good Mexican food and vegetarian options, there is a lot on the menu. Drinks were good and plenty of choices with specials and Fresh Margaritas. I had the brisket burrito and my wife had the empanada sampler. The black bean soup was a tad under cooked, but some people like their beans al dente, so its a draw. Your plate arrives with plenty of rice and bans as well and your entree is generous. Appetizers were good and the chips and salsa above your standard Mexican restaurant for flavor and freshness. And the price was a good value. You'll like Rosalita's.
