I am very sad to say this were some of the worst tacos I have ever had. I used to eat here about 8 years ago and this was the only good Mexican food place in Temecula; so sorry is no longer the best and 4.50 per Taco ? I make better turkey tacos and a lot tastier.....shame

Great value, good food. Excellent staff. Parking is super difficult. Washrooms have long lines. Outdoor patio is nice.

Rosa's cantina feels like a fast food restaurant when you walk in but the quality of the food makes up for that. We were there for Taco Tuesday on our most recent visit and it is an extremely good deal. Not a fine dining place but if you are looking for authentic Mexican food Rosa's is the place to go.

Temecula is a tourist town, at least in part. The old town has delightful buildings and shops. I was looking forward to a nice dinner, followed by a stroll down Front St. I should have turned around and left the restaurant, but I was hungry, and I like Mexican food. The area is large, with many tables in several different... More

Good simple food, served fresh and warm. Love the Tortillas. We always take the leftovers for our wine tasting adventures.

Food was good but my taco was fried. This is not my cup of tea but it was kind of like a taco salad shell on my taco. However very tasty. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Small bar also.

This was a "hunger stop" - we just walked up to the counter and ordered. Food was ready in about 7 minutes. Beer and wine available. I had a burrito and while it was a bit dry - it was filling.

This is our Old Town Staple whenever our daughter performs at the Merc. Love their chicken tostada salad and when we have a larger group the family platter. Not fancy but a true old town feel.

I haven't been in Rosa's for awhile. I LOVED it!! The food is wonderful & a much better price then other Mexican Food restaurants in Temecula. I have lived in Temecula for over 30 years & appreciate Restaurants that only got better, not worse with sky high prices. Try this Rosa's on Front Street, then shop & walk your meal... More
