Pretty Good Mexican Food for Missouri... Had Tacos and Enchiladas both were tasty and plentiful .. Price was reasonable..service was good..it's a bar like environment so it's noisy..

I usually go during Happy Hour. I love love love their nacho. The tamales are great also. I am always too full for a full meal.

They don't accept same-day reservations. We were able to get in just ahead of the big part of the dinner rush (by bundling up and sitting outside before that filled up too). The inside was packed (and loud and boomy), even fairly early on a Thursday evening. Portions are huge, prices are good, and the food quality is excellent! Parking... More

Busy restaurant in the city. Parking is right next to restaurant , in a public parking lot- parking prices were $2.00 an hour. Not bad considering the meters were only a 2 hour limit. We were in city to go to Arch. Food was amazing , chips and Salsa were complimentary. When in St. Louis we would definitely eat there... More

One would not necessarily think of Mexican food when in downtown Saint Louis. But if that is what you are craving than Rosalito's is a very good choice. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. Service was very good. Our lunch selections left everyone more than pleased.

We got a late table, sat inside and had the place to ourselves...nice. Every outside table was occupied when we walked up, so I was worried there'd be a long wait. But alas, no fear, we were seated quickly. Waiter and hostess were a little short, but we got there late and chalked their moods up to a long day.... More

Took a lunch break and opted for some Tex-Mex at Rosalita's Cantina (recommended by our hotel). We were not disappointed! Heather was our server and she was inviting and energetic and helpful from the moment we sat down. The food was outstanding and the entire restaurant's ambiance was spot-on! While we couldn't enjoy some of their drink offerings since we... More

Quick service, friendly staff and the food was delicious. Would definitely go back. The guacamole dip was fresh. The quesadillas were excellent-large portions so could have split but very good!

Came here after the ball game. Service was great, good food, cold drinks. The place could be just a bit cleaner. Otherwise, 👍👍👍.
