We loved it here--the service was awesome and the owner came by and was super friendly! I highly recommend their margaritas and the carnitas--and the hand made flour tortilla chips and amazing salsa made everything even more amazing! I would definitely recommend

It's been a couple of years since I've been here. I ordered their wings yesterday and I have to say they're some of the best wings I've had in Barstow. Their peach melon margarita was also delicious.

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.

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...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.
