Good food and service. Love the salsa. I think they opened/took over another place in Mesa that is not as good as the original place Rosa's. We went there with a coupon and we get a 2 for 1 on our birthday. Cold beers and Margarita's, never had a bad meal.

Great food, service, portions and prices! Enjoyed my leftover fajitas today! The chips and salsa were very tasty especially the green tomatillo salsa. Very fresh food.

This food was okay, but nothing special. Large servings,but that's not necessarily a good thing when the food seems to be a little ...overcooked maybe? I'm not sure what the problem was, I just know that my chicken was pretty tough. The chips and salsa were great - we had high expectations for the rest of the meal. We'll keep... More

Finally found a place with good Tex-Mex! The chips were thin, warm and crisp (though we had to ask for them, service was slow in all areas). There were two kinds of salsa red spicy salsa and a green sweet one. I think they would have been really good mixed together. Hubby had the bacon wrapped chimis and did not... More

I ordered a green chile burro which tasted fine, but there was not even a hint of green chile in it. The meat seemed to be over processed with little texture. The salsa served with the chips was loaded with cilantro which I hate. They did not have an alternative other than Tabasco style sauce. The refried beans were outstanding... More

Service was slow on a Saturday night, even though the place was almost empty. The pulled pork quesidella with refried beans and rice was enormous. The quesidella was fine, but the refried beans lacked flavour and the rice was dry. Cheap though! I wanted a glass of wine, but they only served cocktails and beer.

Rosa's never disappoints. I've been eating here for over 20 years. Unfortunately, we moved away - but anytime we come to town, we make it a point to eat here. This is the place that introduced seafood in Mexican food for me - it changed my life for the better. The green salsa is something I dream about - oh,... More

A snowbird recommended this place. We had the seafood tacos with rice and beans as well as a margarita. The tacos were excellent, and I love the smoky flavor of the beans. Definitely would go back.

We love this little mexican restaurant! The fajitas are SOOO yummy! We've lived in Mesa for years but just discovered this place 6 months ago. We wish we'd have found it earlier!
