My daughter and I had a very good dining experience at Rosebud. We ordered a jalapeno cheddar burger and the "Texas Rachel in a skirt." Both were cooked to perfection and we received excellent service. Prices are reasonable, especially for this area of town.

A converted “Worcester Lunch Car” diner, with a large outdoor patio and bar, with an interesting food and cocktail menu. Great service. Wonderful, homemade pies aren’t to missed.
