Rosa's cantina feels like a fast food restaurant when you walk in but the quality of the food makes up for that. We were there for Taco Tuesday on our most recent visit and it is an extremely good deal. Not a fine dining place but if you are looking for authentic Mexican food Rosa's is the place to go.

Temecula is a tourist town, at least in part. The old town has delightful buildings and shops. I was looking forward to a nice dinner, followed by a stroll down Front St.

I should have turned around and left the restaurant, but I was hungry, and I like Mexican food. The area is large, with many tables in several different areas. No waitress came to greet me with a menu. After a while, I went in search, only to find that I was supposed to order my own food at the counter. I did, and after a short wait, my name was called. The food comes on plastic plates, and you must remember to pick up your plastic silverware. Even my beer came in a plastic mug.

The food was decent...enchiladas, rice, and beans. But it would have been much better with a real fork, a china plate, an iced glass mug, and table service. My opinion is that Temecula's tourists are looking for a more service-oriented meal, and can afford the extra cost that those things would incur. A quick lunch in a small taqueria is another matter, but not a dinner experience on one's weekend getaway.

I should have walked out without ordering.....and I didn't...but now you can choose according to your own desires.

Good simple food, served fresh and warm. Love the Tortillas. We always take the leftovers for our wine tasting adventures.

Food was good but my taco was fried. This is not my cup of tea but it was kind of like a taco salad shell on my taco. However very tasty. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Small bar also.
