My wife and I love their food. Since my wife was born in Mexico her taste in food can be picky with Mexican food. I don't blame her the authentic stuff is worth the price. However, this place can get expensive just be aware it can add up quick. The food is worth trying and they've got an awesome patio... More

Their Chili Verde, which is always my test for a first visit to a Mexican restaurant, gives me such mixed feelings. The sauce was excellent! It passed my test with flying colors. The meat, however, was nearly inedible to me; there usually is a little bit of fat on the pork in this dish--here and there, not much, and not... More

Some of the best Mexican food in town. When we are in Santa Rosa it's a must have. Do yourself the favor and go...you will always return there. :-)

There are five Mexican restaurants within one block of this location and in my opinion the best place is TSR! Why because it is authentic!! How do I know? Because it is owned by a Mexican, has Mexican employees and tons of Mexicans eat there!! Service is just like in Mexico, no big rush, so chill. My favorites are the... More

I have been coming here for years and I love the food. Al Pastor tacos rock my world. Yes, at lunch time, the counter to order can be slow. Many times the food is about two minutes after you sit down from ordering. Outside seating is great. I enjoy each and every visit.

Great food! You'll never leave hungry! Order at the counter. Fast! Only issue is parking is a pain. Park across the street.

We stopped off to grab 4 burritos to take out. The veggie burritos went down a storm, but the pork ones had small chunks of hard, dried, pork which were off-putting. All of them were huge, I could only eat 3/4 of mine.

wonderful tacos with any filling you can imagine. all the ingredients, pork, steak, tongue, fish are all fresh and great flavor. Some of the best salsa we've ever had. Beer is nice and cold. Staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is clean and you can eat outside on the patio.

I always judge a Mexican restaurant by the refried beans, and these are authentic. Yes, they have lard in them, but that's what gives the flavor. So many places offer beans without and sometimes not even enough salt. SRT does them right and it's worth the artery clog every now and then. We've been going here for 18 years! When... More

I have eaten at the Santa Rosa Taqueria for over 13 years and have enjoyed the food and the service. I have tried almost everything on the menu. The entire meet selection is great and the veggies are fresh. I cannot get enough of the salsa and chips and they keep bringing it out to me. It is a small... More
