This used to me one of my all time favorites. I have more than a few of their Holiday Calendars around my house. I can't say that I recall ever being there early on a weekday. I'm guessing that may have been the problem. The Chef wasn't

My visit to Rosa's was good. The food and people were excellent, but the place seemed a little dirty and had dust on the ceiling.

Chips and Salsa are unlimited and fantastic with lots of spice and a great garlicy finish. Chile Relleno's can not be beaten anywhere in Tucson; creamy white enchilada sauce with beans and rice...order with a hot tortilla on the side.

One of the more famous Mexican restaurants in Tucson, it well deserves it's status. Inexpensive, great service, and simply incredible food. I love going there for lunch, when it's never busy.

My wife and I went here a few times when we moved into the area. Our first experience was pretty good. The food was good, but the service was very slow. It was down hill from there on. We have tried this place at least 4 or 5 times since, and it is now to the point that I am writing this because I am disgusted with the place, mostly because of how we have been treated on more than one occasion. Go to Nico's taco stand across the street for mexican food that is more than half the price, and you won't have to deal with the arrogant staff of Rosa's. I will NEVER patronize this overpriced place again.

Rosa's has authentic delicious Mexican food. The prices are reasonable and the menu is extensive. Be prepared for a wait on most nights, especially weekends.

THE BEST CARNE SECA IN THE CITY. I ALWAYS TAKE A PINT OF SALSA HOME WITH ME SINCE I AM THERE!

I DRIVE 20 MILES 2X A MONTH FOR THEIR FOOD! IT IS THE FAVORITE FOR MY WIFE, DAUGHTER AND SON AS WELL.

ASK FOR JESUS! I HAVE ALWAYS HAD GREAT SERVICE FROM HIM.

Cons: NOT THAT CLOSE TO MY HOUSE. SOMETIMES HAVE TO WAIT FOR A TABLE.

If you love authentic Mexican food and margaritas, then you'll love this restaurant. I love this restaurant because of the personal service, cheaper prices and did I mention the margaritas?!

Restaurant has great salsa ... after that it is all downhill. Last time I was there, the server brought out the wrong order (a beef chimichanga) - not once but twice. First time it was a chicken burro, the second time it was a burrito (again) and the server insisted it was a chimi (even though it wasn't cooked).
Everyone else in our group finished their meal. The management was "so sorry" that they told me they wouldn't add my chimi to the bill (what a deal)! Stay away from this dive!

I recently went to Rosa's Restaurant, and surprising enough I found a rubber band in my bean burrito! I was speechless, I told the waiter (who speaks absolutely no English) but by then I just wanted to get the check and leave. I asked for the manager, and (10 mins. later) she told me she could bring me another one, that?s it. I just said ?No, thank you? and we left. I was shocked that they were so nonchalant about the situation and not friendly what so ever. They have no customer service. The food is overpriced, it takes the staff an incredibly long time to seat and serve you, which is quite unacceptable. I'm certain that the FDA would not approve of what happen. Overall, I would not recommend anyone going to Rosa's.

Sometimes TOO busy, but there's a reason. Rosa's serves terrific food, traditional Mexican with their own marvelous salsa and some of their own twists, like the combo plates, including David's Special, which should please all vegetarians with the green corn tamale & avocado enchilada & more. If you're more of a meat lover, their green chile, or carne seca, should satisfy you very well. Terrific for families, and they do very good takeout, but allow 20 to 30 minutes MORE for takeout than they tell you on the phone, particularly if it's at one of their busy times. My one con would be that they don't treat takeout orders with as much speed and kindness as they do dine-in people. But that won't keep me from ordering their terrific food. We live close, and my family's happy when I bring Rosa's in. I'd say: put them on speed dial.

If you growing up in Tucson or you know good mexican food - you have been here and if you haven't you are missing out. I love everything on their menu. The atmosphere is great and the staff are amazing. I can't complain.

The food is excellent, especially the chicken chimichanga with guacamole. Crispy on outside, moist and succulent on the inside. The salsa has just enough kick to make it interesting. However, the staff almost seemed like I was a bother to them. No smiles and they asked me questions like it was causing them pain. It was a little busy but they could still act like they wanted my service. Perhaps if you go when it isn't busy the attitudes might be better.

I was really disappointed in this place. I was expecting great things but all I got was oversalted, overpriced, poorly served disgusting food. The salsa was on the same lines as something you get in a jar from the grocery store. The chips were stale. The menu is confusing in a very small font. The food is overpriced because most things don't include rice and beans so you have to get them on the side if you want them. And they are definitely NOT worth the extra money. You can get better rice and beans at a fast food taco shop. I am a huge fan of enchiladas and this is the only place I have gotten them from that I didn't like them. How does a Mexican place mess up enchiladas, rice and beans, AND the chip and salsa? I am a big fan of family run operations, but this place is just horrible! I tried to like it, they just messed up everything.

The staff were also borderline rude and they don't give free refills on beverages. They have some improvements to make.

So if your idea of mexican food is Taco Bell or baja fresh, check yourself before you wreck yourself and dont come here. This is authentic mindblowing mexican food. Their tamales are the best. Their chicken chimichanga will keep you full for a week. Los margaritas estan bien. It gets crowded in the evenings so expect a little wait. Your food will come fast once seated so dont plan on a long winded dinner. The chips are never ending and the salsa tasty. TODOS VAMANOS A ROSAS!!

PROS: Best mexican food in tucson
CONS: can get crowded, the cactus glasses filled with margarita fall over easily

I have lived in AZ all my life. I had a dollar for every Mexican joint I've dined in from Nogales to Page and Yuma to Springerville I could open my own place. I have never had a more delicious chili. The chili relleno is nothing fancy but they use extra garlic to make a melt in your mouth treat. This is typical Sonoran blue plate home cooking. The waiter Chuy was excellent and the beer was served crackling cold as it should. I can't wait to go try some other items!

I have been in Tucson for just over a year. Of course I have eaten alot of mexican food BUT!!! ROSAS was wonderful. The food was cooked just right...all side dishes/sauces were just the right amount. I have been served having MOUNDS of beans and rice, and sauce dripping off the plate there was so much. Of course, when I began to eat, I had to move the extras around to find the main dish. Even the temperture...good. And, this was take-out. The texture and taste was pleasing to the tongue and satisfying to the appetite. Last but not least, the service...That was GREAT too. I was there when it was so busy people were outsdie waiting. The Lady was nice...and talked to people. The waitress looked busy not disgusted. OK..I am done. (*

This is a great family run Mexican restaurant. Rosa oversees the daily operations.
The food is excellent. The level of custome service and attention is extremely high.
