We arrived in town a couple of days early for our son's wedding. We stayed at the Arlington and this restaurant was recommended by our daughter and right across the street. My husband ate the enchiladas and I order a savory shrimp dish. Both were very good. The only item we really didn't like was the salsa - we usually... More

We've eaten at a lot of restaurants in Hot Springs and this was one of the best! Awesome service and the food was fantastic! I had the Popeyes Burrito and a margarita and I highly recommend both!!!

Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good margaritas. Interesting food. Good chips and salsa. Arrive early to avoid crowded on street parking and to avoid crowded tables in dining area.

The skinny margarita was as good as any I have had, large and strong. Good food and nice service, we will definitely go back.

As soon as we were debating going in and eating at the restaurant, 2 people said it super good go eat there! And so we did and it was yummy! It's not tex mex. I got the tamales and they were super good. I would recommend this place. The only thing I didn't like is that you have to order... More

No what we were expecting, but the patio was a nice place to sit and look at nature. They need to something with the furniture and patio surface. Had a good Bloody Mary but the liquor tax made them very expensive. Food was mediocre at best.

We ordered the quesadillas with pork and a salad. The quesadillas were not Tex-Mex and were delicious. The pork and goat cheese provided some wonderful flavors. Also, we shared the order to save room for the caramelized bananas over ice cream. We are very glad we did. We still ate too much, but enjoyed every bite.

We spent the weekend in Hot Springs at the Arlington and wanted to eat at Rolando's since we like this type of food and the restaurant is a short walk away. We arrived shortly after five on a Saturday and requested seating in the outdoor patio. The location is a nice setting to enjoy a meal. It was a bit... More

Beautiful outdoor patio. The guacamole tasted like it was from a package but everything else was excellent
