“Very good food, nice environment and fast service”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

First visit to Rosa's but we will be back. Great variety, terrific food, fast service and a nice environment. This is a upscale Taco Bueno, order at the register, when your food is ready they post it on the electronic board and you get it yourself. Fixings bar is well stocked and kept clean. Drinks are also self-service. The tortillas are fresh made right in front of you and are delicious.

“"Does not matter what city, Rosa's Cafe always the best!"”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Traveling home on Easter from a reunion through Waco, saw a sign for Rosa's and of course, made a detour for lunch! Inexpensive great Mexican food with a lively atmosphere. Been to several Rosa's, the service, quality, quantity are always very good. We love the Taco dishes especially. However, it is not a trip to Rosa's without the tortillas, with butter and honey. YUMMY! Whether living in Waco or traveling through, be sure to stop at Rosa's. Tuesday night is special night. Enjoy!

“Okay”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Tuesday nights is when you can save money on your order. The parking lot still isn't large enough for the loads of cars it brings in on that night. The drive thru is not recommended on those nights. We went inside to make our order. 20 minutes later, the same vehicles in line had just moved to the front to pick up their order. Friendly staff though.

“Inexpensive and tasty”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

This is fast food, made fresh, and pretty dang tasty. The prices were reasonable and the food came out quickly. They had a salsa bar with quite a few selections. Peppers, pico, and cilantro were also available. My family and I had the enchiladas. The sauce was good. Even my picky eater enjoyed them. The location was conveniently located to other places to shop.
