I can't say whether or not Rositas is "authentic Mexican Cuisine", but I can say it is the ONLY Mexican restaurant that we frequent. The food is actually flavorful without the typical "Burn you out of the room" pepper taste that most places pass off...More

Rosita's has been in business a long time and is a DeKalb staple. The place is clean and has outside tables. The drinks are good and the food ample. I've never had anything bad there.

We were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Food was good. Our server, Debbie, was S-L-O-W. Luckily, Kelsey came to our rescue. We had pulled pork tacos, tamales, a combo plate and chips w/salsa. Strawberry Margarita was yummy. Beautiful outdoor dining area.
