A friend and I went to Rosita's for a Saturday lunch. I ordered the fish tacos in garlic sauce. She ordered the shrimp tacos in chipotle sauce and a chile relleno. We shared everything.

The exterior is unprepossessing. We eat here a couple of times a month. The food is fresh and well-prepared. It's definitely fast food, but food you can feel good about eating.

Excellent food, fast service, good prices. Our favorites are the vegetarian burritos, fish tacos and carne asada burritos. They have a huge salsa bar. We usually take it to go; but they also have tables. Very crowded at lunch with local Mexican working men, which probably proves how great it is!

Karlita's has great Mexican take-out! Delicious tacos, huge burritos fixed the way you want them! Everything is fresh, and the turn-around time from order is fast! Not American Mexican food!! Sooo good!!

I have been eating here for years, and if you like great, cheap Mexican this is the place for you. It's a real hole in the wall on a very busy street, and the ambiance is gritty Redwood City, but you go there for the food! I guarantee its better than all of the upscale yuppie Mex downtown. There's usually... More
