What can I say? Really good southwestern food here in Palmer Lake. Great cuisine, good service and nice setting. I almost don't want to write this review because everyone else will discover it.

La Rosa is fabulous! Housemade chips and salsa. Warm atmosphere. Staff made you feel like you were family. Chili samples offered and enjoyed-----green chili from Pueblo, mild chili, and hatch red chili sauces. We shared a Christmas (red and green chili) burrito, stacked enchiladas, and the special for the night----butternut squash bake with cheese and green chili. The food was... More

Reminds me of Corrales, NM in the 1970's. Cozy NM atmosphere, ristras & paintings on wall for sale. As recommended lamb shank was tender & tasty, marinated in NM red chile (SIC). Carne adovada (marinated chile pork) had enough bite & also was tender. Try sampler of red & green chile. Personally, I like garlic & salt in chile which... More

It's like being in Santa Fe! Admittedly, we've only eaten Brunch here (twice now). The first time I had the breakfast burrito with both Green & Red Chili & it came with fried potatoes (which I usually don't care for, but these were delicious) & the best tasting pinto beans, and yesterday I had the Huevos Rancheros with the same...

We live locally but tonight was only our second visit to La Rosa. Just like the first visit, we left wondering why we don't go there more often! The food is really delicious - it is prepared creatively and the presentation is very appealing. My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits to this restaurant!

We hadn't been here since the last time I wrote a review like 3 years ago. I don't know if my palate is different now, because I still like spicy food, but it just tasted better this time. There still wasn't a whole lot of spice to it, but there was definitely more flavor all around. The shrimp tacos were... More

Enjoyed an excellent dinner tonight- had chicken with mole sauce, and a la rosa margarita. The best restaurant in the Monument Colorado area!

One of my favorite drives is along the 105 corridor and the little town of Palmer Lake is home to some great little restaurants including La Rosa. The nondescript pink building is the landmark as this little house turned restaurant is almost hard to find sans the rose logo on the side of the building. The first time we went... More
