NileGuide Expert tip:
Rosa's will happily wrap up your food to go. Dine-in orders are always welcome.
According to the restaurant's plaque of fame on the wall, Rosa's Mexican Food Restaurant in Tucson has played host to such luminaries as Willie Nelson, ZZ-Top, and Johnny Cash. That's an impressive roster, and telling of this restaurant's long-running success as a family-owned and run restaurant. The Ortega Family has made Rosa into a minor institution through the steady (over 35 years now, and counting) production of tasty Mexican food. Don't expect anything that will knock your socks off, or any new-fangled takes on old classics. This is the place to go when you want cheesy, steaming hot dishes like enchiladas, chile rellenos, tacos, and fluffy, delectable rice. Calorie-counters will want to check their badges in at the door.
