OMG we were in heaven. While traveling the past month we had missed "real" Mexican food! Well we sure got our fix at Rosas! My husband had ground-beef tacos (his fav) and I had the taco 🌮 enchilada plate! Their salsa bar is fresh and...More

Having previously eaten at a different Rosa's location, stopped in at this one on the way through Waco. A bit out of the way if you're going through on I-35, but worth the side trip. Restaurant quality Tex Mex at a decent price--mostly. To pay...More
