At the risk of making this place more popular and crowded, this is the restaurant that first comes to mind when thinking about going out to eat. We have actually been eating here for over 40 years. The food quality and taste has not changed in all that time. This is a small (16 tables) neighborhood restaurant. Rosa is always... More

if you are looking for tacos , tostadas, or a Rosa Special u will not be disappointed. The food is good clean Mexican foods with a large selection to chose from. We eat here about once a week. Shredded beef and chicken tacos with extra lettuce are a favorite for us.

Ok, I know most of the locals come here for Rosa's Special. And so did I. But for those that want something special and you've never been here. You must stop and try this place! Unfortunately, I cannot comment on any other menu items because when I'm in town I always stop here and get the same thing. I grew... More

Nice place for Mexican food. If you are looking for a casual family run restaurant it's worth a visit. Food is good. Prices are good. Service is friendly and staff is very attentive.

I started going to this restaurant as a child (when it was Freddie's). Rosa has done a great job of keeping many of the iconic old school classics, with adding some new. I no longer live close by, but go whenever I can. This is a South Bay Gem! I love the salsa, the salads, the tacos, the beans, the... More

The service way great and the restaurant was very clean. My husband loved all the salsas, but the rest of the meal really was just okay. Nothing to write home about. Don't think we will be back.

Service is great. Plenty of parking space. Food is just as good as any of the big chains except they will try to prepare it as you like if the way they prepare it is not your favorite. Plenty of items in the menu. It's very clean inside and although it's licated in a main avenue it's not noise.

My brother & sister-in-law were in town from NorCal and along with mom & nephew we wanted someplace small but with BIG food taste. We decided on Rosa's as this has always been a great place and never disappointing. We all had some of the favorites, either the 1/2 Rosa's Special (beef & chicken) wet burrito, I like the traditional... More

Freddy's is now called Rosa's. Same place, same great food. My family has been eating here for at least 25 years, through different locations and now names. It is a family favorite. My first stop back in California is always Rosa's. It is the best, most fresh mexican food. The Vegetable Ella is awesome. Rosa is so sweet and so... More
