To be honest, we ended up at this establishment, because so many restaurants downtown gave their employees this week off.

The salsa was some of the... More

Made our second visit to Rolando's with three couples. Menu items very similar to Mexican, but with flair and distinctive differences in menu descriptions from typical Mexican.

Eclectic food (Spanish/Mexican/Cuban type) served in what appeared to be on a hill seemingly on the side of a small mountain.....Interesting lighting and music....A bit expensive but for an interesting evening it's worth a try.....

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on the spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised. The Mexican food was delicious with a variety of options. The burritos with flour tortillas tastes great.

True to equadorian flavor. They do it serve beef. Quesadillas, queso, cooking styles are not traditional Tex mex.

A number of people in shops and the proprietor of the B & B that we stayed in heartily recommended this place and we ended up here for lunch on our last day in Hot Springs. Delightful and delicious lunch beautifully presented and with very lovely service. Very very enjoyable, do yourself a favor and go eat at this place!!!!... More
