We recently enjoyed a great dinner with close friends at Rolando's. The food was so fresh and tasty. I HATE black pepper on my food and our waitress, Doreen, went out of her way to ensure my meal was free of black pepper! On top of that, Doreen, treated us like family! She joked and kidded with us. She was... More

We're from Florida where there are plenty of Latin restaurants. This one is great! The foot was tasty, the spice level was just right, and the presentation was excellent. Cheerful, informative waitress also. This turned out to be the best meal of our trip!

I would rate the food as gourmet. It is well prepared and nicely presented. It is not spicy food. I like HOT TEX-MEX, but I like this place for the quality of food and the effort the chefs put in to make it appetizing in both taste and appearance.

Located in historic Fort Smith on bustling Garrison Ave, this is a must stop while you are in Fort Smith. The food is delightful- make sure you try the guacamole and cheese dip. Also enjoy one of the crafted drinks from the seasoned bar tenders on staff.

We always try to stop here when we are on our way home on vacations. We have never been disappointed. This is just a small restaurant in the downtown area. But they have a good variety of latin foods and everything always seems great. We had Josefina's Tamales (Pork), Lula's Enchiladas, and a Molten Chocolate Lava dessert. Everything was hot,... More

This is a great place to eat for lunch. The food is tasty and the place is very quaint. We laughed at how grumpy our waiter was... it wouldn't keep me from going back!

My wife and I had dinner here. I had the Don Quixote (spelling?) burrito. It was absolutely delicious. The cream sauce with drizzles of green, red, and brown sauces make a flavorful combination. I accidentally left my debit card. The restaurant put it in their safe until I was able to return and get it. Great service too.

The Don Quiote and the guacamole for sure. The wine list is small yet quality. The top shelf margarita is better than others. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. A must!!!

It really is a central and south american place. I didn't see re fried beans on the menu anywhere. The portions are not huge but more than adequate and the flavor is always excellent.
