My favorite restaurant finds are about the food- this place did NOT disappoint. In Downtown St. Louis, we stopped in after moving my daughter back into SLU. Food was better than I expected for this admittedly tourist-friendly location. Tex-Mex influences galore- from the Cantina meets Catholic Church decor to the seasoning of the food. I had the rellenos- great cheese... More

We walked over from the City Museum two days while in St. Louis. The food was good and I am from Houston. I am critical of the Tex-Mex phenomenon. Looking back, we didn't have margaritas because we were playing too hard at the museum. We ordered different food both days and it was consistently good.

I would rate this restaurant 4 stars; but the Trip Advisor web page is not allowing me to,. Restaurant was very good. When ordering a burrito, you choose what sauce you want on it, and they add the rice and beans inside of the burrito instead of on the side. My husband ordered a fajita, and it came with so... More

Rosalita's margaritas are amazing! So many unique options like pomegranate and Vegas Margarita with Red Bull. Carla was an amazing server who made it a fun night!

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.
