YUM! – This restaurant Amazing! The staff is wonderful, the food is even better and you can always count on the quality being the best! I have been going here for 30 years and have loved it every time.
Best Mexican Food in Seattle -- and strong Margaritas! – Free, freshly home made corn tortillas, the strongest and most delicious margarita in Seattle, the best chips, the most delicious green salsa and the best tortilla soup that I have ever tasted this side of the Mexican border are all to be had at Rositas in Greenlake. Go there.
We eat here regularly and it is a consistent favorite. You will not be disappointed.
If you do not appreciate lots of kids, eat in the bar area. They do have tables there; the food offering is the same and no crying allowed.
Family-style simple mexican done well – The atmosphere is relaxed, the waitstaff is considerate and professional, and the food was prepared as you would expect- served hot with great flavors, and lots of beans, rice, and cheese.
The menu has breadth and range.
Probably not a place to impress a date or out of town guest, but come with good friends and relax.
Delicious, authentic food – By far the best Mexican food in all of Seattle. Great service, great bar, fun atmosphere. Everything I've tried on the menu is delicious an I always leave full happy!
BEST Mexican food around – I've been going to the Greenlake Rosita's for at least ten years now and I LOVE it. Great drinks, and the enchiladas verde is to DIE for! The black bean soup and chicken/corn/avocado salad are also good. Great free chips/salsa/fresh off the grill tortillas. They have two happy hours too, which is nice. There can be long waits on weekend nights but during the week you can usually get seated right away, especially in the bar.
donde esta el sabor? – Went there for lunch. The first thing I noticed wasn't decor or friendliness of the staff, it was the REALLY strong cleaning product smell. I think the "chef" forgot to add salt to my lunch because it was tasteless. How can you mess up eggs and chorizo? Maybe Rosita's was outstanding in the past, but it has unfortunately slipped into mediocrity.
Delicious – This is one of the better Mexican food restaurants I've found in Seattle. Being from the Southwest, I have pretty high standards but they were satisfied by Rosita's. The service is usually good, parking is decent to find, and the food is consistently good. My only complaints is it's a bit pricey for a Mexican food place. However, they carafes of sangria are delicious and the warm tortillas from the bar make the wait for food even better!
Solid Mexican food with no suprises – Yum- good Mexican food that doesn't go out on a limb with any of their dishes, but delivers solid food for families. This is one of my girlfriends' favorite places to eat out. The warm tortillas are delicious. Service is good and it is reasonably priced.
Way to expensive!!! – This place is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too expensive.
It is your basic mexican restaurant with prices $4-$5 more per plate.
The Chuck E Cheese of Mexican? – Maybe it was just my typical luck but we ran into anklebiters, and lots of them. Is that typical of this place? My wife says all the time she has been there for dinner it is. It was especially bad on my visit, kids running around everywhere. The funny thing is the "good" kids (and their parents) sat in awe as the little hellions ran amok.
Any how, the food was ok, nothing great, nothing bad but more expensive than I am used to for Mexican grub. We'll return for happy hour, in the BAR.
