Their chips are the best-selling light & crunchy! I really enjoy their carne asada salad. This time I got shredded chicken. Excellent. They have a great garlic ranch dressing too. Always great service.

Stopped while passing thru Barstow on a business trip. It was late on a wendsday about closing time. Service was quick and friendly. The chips were homemade and the2 salsas very good. One mild and chunky one hotter. I had a chili rellenos and a taco with rice and beans all very good couldn't eat it all!

Was looking for some Mexican fare while staying in Barstow. The combo had a little of everything, and all was good. The enchilada was really good. Beans n rice were good too. Chips n salsa fresh and tasty. The service at the bar was top notch, and the margaritas were special. Couple of big tv's to catch the game on.... More

When driving down the strip it was difficult to determine a good restaurant to try. We took a chance with Rosita's and was pleasantly surprised. We started off with homemade salsa and chips. Both my husband And myself chose the burrito, which we could have easily shared. We made a wise decision stopping here.

When we travel we make a point of searching to find a privately run restaurant in a town we stop in. The wall of this place said 1948! We're going here. The place was having a big family party. The service was slow therefore. The enchiladas were very good however. The chips were warm and salsa very good. I had... More

Stopped here on the way home. Slow night Sunday so we had almost the whole place to ourselves. Good service and great food for Mexican food. Middle of road prices and large servings.

This restaurant is not in a great area of town (there may not BE any great areas of town, from what we saw), but it is an excellent place to eat, with Mexican and Soutwestern dishes prepared wonderfully. We had a scrumptious chicken enchilada, which was toasted to a golden brown, with melt-in-the-mouth chicken, and savory cheese. The garden salad,... More

Dark and rather dreary. Service was ok. Food was ok. I think the overall atmosphere takes away from your dining experience. We only have visited once, just not sure we want to return. We like Tex-mex but not sure where to try it in Barstow.

The only time we eat here is when we have to because of a banquet or other gathering. The Mexican food is below average and the garlic ranch dressing is awful. It would be my last choice of places to have a meal in Barstow.

Where do I start? - No atmosphere - Dark and dingy - Waitress seemed uninterested and dropped food all over the floor near us and didn't clean up properly - Lack of food knowledge when asked questions about what would be recommended - Food wasn't particularly good considering the hype they gave themselves
