Fresh made tortillas (you can see them made), and great taste, nice decoration too, and clean place. Great place to eat in Waco

If this is good food to you, you have no taste buds? Should have gone next door to Cheddar's. Took my dad to the dr in Waco and he wanted fajitas and this was close to the dr. No thank you. Will look up restaurants on Trip Advisor next time! Usually trustworthy but different palates up here.

Food was fresh and delicious. The service was really quick. The dining area needs to be cleaned better. Our swat had beans on them.

Rosa's is a self service style restaurant. You order the food at the counter and then pick up when ready. The Mexican family style atmosphere is very laid back and comfortable. The food is outstanding and reasonably priced so you can take the whole family without breaking the bank. I had the enchilada plate and it was excellent. You get... More

For the price it's worth going for. It's not fine dining and you can find better Tex Mex food but your wait will be long and your pocket book will feel it. Festive deco and unlimited drinks.

Vacationing ein waco, we did not know much about restaurants i the area, but I wish that we had Rosa's cafes were I am from. The food was great, the portion size were just right. I would go back if I were in the area again.

We had never been to a Rosa's before and didn't expect it to be quite like this. We thought it was a sit down and be served place, but soon learned that you place your order at a counter and then be seated. The food was ok, and not bad for a quick lunch.

We have eaten at a Rosa's in other cities & enjoyed it. This one was no different. The staff is friendly, service is fast & food is good. You order & pick up your food at a counter. Drinks & condiments are also self serve. They have a good variety and have combination plates as well as ala carte.
