It was so spicy, I ordered another without any salsa and requested a very mild salsa be placed on a side dish. A spicy guacamole salsa was brought on a side dish BUT my tongue was so scorched from the first dish, that I couldn’t eat at all. My meal was comped because I didn’t eat. I got to watch my husband and two daughters eat their food though. I could have stayed home to do that. Our server was nice and gracious beyond belief. I haven’t eaten here for two years because of a similar experience and thought I’d give Rosalita’s another try. The noise was a bit loud since we were seated near the heating system that sounds like my back up generator outside the house; we couldn’t even have a decent conversation. I will not be back. I hope their other restaurants are better! This was a waste of my time and money.

Food was good, but when I looked up non of the cooks were wearing their mask and most of the kitchen staff had them on incorrectly. I asked the manager why the cooks didnt have their masks on he said the CDC does not require them when cooking because they are not flame retardant.

Told the waiter and he said he will let the manager know. No response from the manager and the spoiled dish stayed on the bill. Margaritas were fine.

Our server was attentive but not smothering. He didn’t rush us out after we were done eating (the restaurant wasn’t full). Enchilada combo for me, gringo tacos for my sweetheart. Guacamole is delicious Only thing better than our food and service was the amazingly beautiful love of my life sitting across from me. ❤️

Ordered my usual surf and turf tacos food came to table my plate had only three tacos. Told waiter he took plate and left came back to table and said no it’s three tacos. I told him no it’s two shrimp and two steak tacos he left with my plate again to take it to the front of the restaurant and came back and said it’s only three tacos. I then showed him the menu online and show four tacos and then he said I thought you had the air,land and sea tacos. If he wrote it down he would have got it right

For $10 each the Margaritas were not good and waitress brought them with no salt. Another tables meals were delivered to our table. Food was terrible and service was not great either. Wouldn’t go back.

Very attentive, especially to my mom, who can be quite picky. Sat outside, safe and comfortable. Food was very good. I had fish tacos, which tasted fresh. My wife enjoyed her taco salad and my mom loved her beef enchiladas.

The food was good but wasn't what I ordered. Not a big deal really but as a customer you really shouldn't tell me what I ordered, I know what I order when I order anything. I think he should pay attention more, he must have been new.

For some reason the food seemed extra good and even though the out side tent was crowded and very loud it did not take away from the our overall experience. Our waiter was excellent as was the rest of staff on duty. Couldn't have asked anymore from this restaurant during these Covid times or not. Thanks for the great time!

We shared a chicken fajita - which was served beautifully as it was divided in half before serving. The house margarita wet my whistle and was not overly suite. In view of covid - we felt very safe as the tables are spaced far apart as none of the tables in the middle of the dining room are being used.

This was only our second time there and will be back for more. The steak was delicious and tons of flavor. The pain killer drink is strong but VERY good. 10 times better than that "other" Mexican place in Woodbridge. (i'll be nice and not mention names)

I had arroz con pollo and the chicken was tasty and tender. My husband had the bistec y camarones and he saud it was delicious. The tortilla chips came out hot and the salsa was fresh and chunky.
