This was our first time going here because we just moved to Fort Smith a couple weeks ago. We were able to get a 5:00 reservation when calling on Valentine's day but the room we were in was basically empty all evening so I'm not sure why they wouldn't offer any later reservations. The restaurant was freezing cold and I... More

almost always enjoyable, but crowded. Four large men take up quite a lot of room. I understand moving to new location with much more room.

Everyone in our group loved their entrees! I ordered the Popeye Burrito and it was wonderful! The others in our group ordered: the Pescado de Mesias (terrific!), chicken quesadillas, & guacamole. Everything was delicious! we will definitely be return customers! We did make reservations prior to our arrival. The table was set up for us and ready upon our arrival!

After a volleyball tournament I pulled up good old trip advisor to find a place and this was #3 and literally around the corner from convention center. No wait and suck a quirky cool old school vibe to this place. Got the guacamole as suggested by reviews and it was very very good. We tried the chicken enchiladas and the... More

Unless you have a reservation, they don't pay attention to you as often but the food is really good and very artistic. Walk ins are last on the list. Kinda pricy but the portions are really big.

Every time I have visited Rolando's, the service has been top notch and the food is absolutely the best. First of all, the presentation is beautiful and the style is unique. I love the plato adventura because it gives you a taste of almost) everything. Try to save room for dessert. The bananas foster is to die for!

Gourmet, authentic, artistic, delicious. Rolando's has been a local favorite for many years. My favorites are the quest flamado, quesadillas de chivo with chicken, and the mojitos. Try it - you won't regret it!

We stopped for dinner on our drive home from Christmas break. I normally check TripAdvisor reviews for good suggestions to stop when we travel. The food was just okay. (None of us really loved what we got, the taquitos were pretty bad, no one liked them.) Service was fine. But, the questions were meant to elicit positive response only, "You... More
