Dropped by Rosita's for a late lunch. On recommendation from our hotel nearby. Quick service, food was good. Very casual place. Nothing super special, but very good and very local.

We asked for a good authentic Mexican food restaurant. We were disappointed. Don't get me wrong it was good food but it was the same as every other Tex-Mex type place in the US. If you want chips salsa and a wet burrito this is the place. But not for tacos.

Stopping through during our Miami trip. One of the best chimichangas I've ever had. Delicious. Generous portion as well.

Rosita's states "real Mexican food", but unless you have dined in Mexico you will have to take their word for it. My hubby and I found ourselves hungry in the unfamiliar neighborhood of Naples. We discovered Rosita's down some obscure road. Clean on the outside and inside. Our server brought us nachos and a mildly spicy salsa. Deeelish! My husband... More

This small, no frills Mom & Pop, Mexican Restaurant is the Perfect place to fill your belly with Fresh, Inexpensive, Flavorful, Authentic Mexican Dishes. Remember Homestead & Florida City are surrounded by Farms, mostly worked by Mexican Immigrants – yes is the Place to Eat… Really – order anything. But my Favorite are the Barbaco Tacos.

We wanted to try something genuine etnic and decided on this mexican restaurant. It wasn't Taco Bell but the real deal. I had heard beans are a key ingredient for all kitchens south of the border and but wasn't fully prepared to see it as the major ingredient on all our entres. Unless you know you love beans (they were... More

Place is okay. Service was ok. The food was not really my thing. But it was nice that we got free basket of Doritos as starter. Personally, I would not go back.

I lunched in this restaurant on my way back from Alligator Farm. Very authentic and good Mexican cooking. I often wonder why there are not more Mexican restaurants in England. Perhaps they overdo the surroundings instead of concentrating on good Mexican food. Rosita's cook should come and show them how. Filling and just right spice wise. Very good value as... More

The food is decent. Clean property. A generic Mexican restaurant. Price is fair though, and there is plenty of food in a plate.

Don't get me wrong, it looks like a hole-in-the-wall place at first glance. Well, it IS a hole in the wall, but a darned good one. Probably the best Mexican food I've had outside of Los Angeles or Tijiuana. Don't go in there for the decor, it's lit like a cafeteria, but the food is 4- or 5-star.

Thank David H
