There was a home baseball game so the crowd was fun. The food was predictable and pretty average. We had the Cadillac Nachos but it was really light on the promised shrimp and scallops. Too many good restaurants in STL to visit this one again.

We have been to Rosalita's several times. The food and drinks were good. I think it is a little over price for Mexican food. There are other places in town were the food is better and cheaper.

We've been to Rosalita's on many special occasions and really like it. After driving 4 hours and going to a Cards game, we were starving and decided to go to our favorite Washington Ave restaurant. We were greeted by two young ladies 19-21 years old and after asking how many in our party were informed that the wait would be... More

The restaurant is average. Good location, nice outside sitting, and inside the restaurant is good too. Service was poor, menu is limited, and prices are high for what you get. Would go back, but not to have a meal. Good place to stop by for a drink and appetizer.

This was a great place for a quick lunch. Service was good and the atmosphere was nice. This restaurant was recommended by a local person and we decided to give it a try. The day was rainy and we ate indoors, but it had nice outdoor seating for warmer, dryer weather.

We went here with a party of 4 the weekend before Valentine's Day and had an awesome experience. The food, service, atmosphere and margaritas were great. We would definitely go back!

Rosalita's is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants to eat at. This visit I came on a Monday with a friend to get the Monday special, which is stuff nachos. I highly recommend them. (My other favorite item to get is their chicken fajita nachos.) Our server was very nice and attentive. Rosalita's is in a great location downtown to... More

Great food and great price! Downtown st. Louis you can eat , walk and shop. Every shop we walked into was so friendly. Our shuttle took us and dropped us off while we ate and looked at the stores.

This is a very congenial restaurant with an excellent selection of Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes. Visiting from a Texas, I have to admit that I was surprised and impressed by the quality of the food. I ordered two different kinds of tamales - butternut squash with goat cheese and carnitas- and thoroughly enjoyed both. Others in the party had the... More

Great atmosphere, excellent service and tasty food. Tex-Mex mainly but standard Mexican entrees. Will be back.
