Greeted by the nicest young man at the counter. You order from the overhead menu. The restaurant was spacious and clean. Very busy at 1PM on a Sunday.

Decided on two platters, hubby had two chicken enchiladas w/rice & beans and I two chili rellanos w/rice & beans. Chips & salsa from the awesome salsa bar were included. As was three warm flour tortillas for my meal

Our platters were served promptly and hot! Food was delicious and very large portions.

We will be back!

We loved this place! Food was good as were the margaritas and service. It has a great view of Lake Las Vegas from the patio. We will be back!

Order at the counter kind of place. Pretty good breakfast options. Priced right, excellent salsa bar. Bottled beer only. Parking available onsite.

Lunch-time walk down Milpas Street. Lucky I saw Rosales down a cross street, across from a USA gas station. The employees give a good feeling. I ordered a tamale (puerca en chile verde) and it was good. Very good. Flavorful. The location is a nice looking stand alone building. Inside you order at a counter, seat yourself. There's a self-serve soda fountain and self-serve fresh salsa bar. Upbeat Mexican pop music is festive. I like this place. I'd come back.

If you came here for ambiance or atmosphere, you came to the wrong place. But authentic Mexican food and a surprisingly good beer selection -- oh yes! Very friendly service, a nice salsa collection. Flavorful and inexpensive and quick: not a bad combo!
