Rosa's is a self service style restaurant. You order the food at the counter and then pick up when ready. The Mexican family style atmosphere is very laid back and comfortable. The food is outstanding and reasonably priced so you can take the whole family...More

This latest visit (it was not my idea), was the straw that broke the camel's back. A few weeks ago, I drove through Rosa's and ordered a chicken fajita plate. I didn't receive the cheese, sour cream and guacamole. I live 20 miles from there...More
