When driving down the strip it was difficult to determine a good restaurant to try. We took a chance with Rosita's and was pleasantly surprised. We started off with homemade salsa and chips. Both my husband And myself chose the burrito, which we could have...More

Stopped here on the way home. Slow night Sunday so we had almost the whole place to ourselves. Good service and great food for Mexican food. Middle of road prices and large servings.

Dark and rather dreary. Service was ok. Food was ok. I think the overall atmosphere takes away from your dining experience. We only have visited once, just not sure we want to return. We like Tex-mex but not sure where to try it in Barstow.

The only time we eat here is when we have to because of a banquet or other gathering. The Mexican food is below average and the garlic ranch dressing is awful. It would be my last choice of places to have a meal in Barstow.

This restaurant has the look of authenticity only. There was a time when this was "the place to be", unfortunately different management took over and it slowly became what it is now, which is ready made food out of a can, and they charge you...More
