I've been going to Rosita's since I was little, and it's always delicious! They hand-make corn tortillas in the front where you can watch, and give a sample to kids (a tortilla r...


We spent a pleasant evening with friends and the food was good. However, when receiving our credit card statement a couple of weeks later, we learned that the restaurant had run ...

YUM! 3/25/2010

This restaurant Amazing! The staff is wonderful, the food is even better and you can always count on the quality being the best! I have been going here for 30 years and have loved it every time. Pros: Best Mexican in town! more

Best Mexican Food in Seattle -- and strong Margaritas! 3/9/2010

Free, freshly home made corn tortillas, the strongest and most delicious margarita in Seattle, the best chips, the most delicious green salsa and the best tortilla soup that I have ever tasted this side of the Mexican border are all to be had at Rositas in Greenlake. Go there. Pros: strongest margaritas, best of breedMexican delights in Seatt Cons: too many calories in mexican food! more

Family-style simple mexican done well 2/7/2010

The atmosphere is relaxed, the waitstaff is considerate and professional, and the food was prepared as you would expect- served hot with great flavors, and lots of beans, rice, and cheese. Pros: Well done food Cons: No Surprises more

Delicious, authentic food 6/15/2008

By far the best Mexican food in all of Seattle. Great service, great bar, fun atmosphere. Everything I've tried on the menu is delicious an I always leave full happy! Pros: great food, fun atmosphere, friendly service, big parking lot in back Cons: it's a popular place - but worth the wait! more

BEST Mexican food around 2/6/2008

I've been going to the Greenlake Rosita's for at least ten years now and I LOVE it. Great drinks, and the enchiladas verde is to DIE for! The black bean soup and chicken/corn/avocado salad are also good. Great free chips/salsa/fresh off the grill tortillas. They have two happy hours too, which is nice. There can be long waits on weekend nights but during the week you can usually get seated right away, especially in the bar. Pros: Great food, prompt service. Pretty good value. Good for kids, kids menu available. Cons: Waits on weekends, lame dessert menu. more

donde esta el sabor? 6/25/2007

Went there for lunch. The first thing I noticed wasn't decor or friendliness of the staff, it was the REALLY strong cleaning product smell. I think the "chef" forgot to add salt to my lunch because it was tasteless. How can you mess up eggs and chorizo? Maybe Rosita's was outstanding in the past, but it has unfortunately slipped into mediocrity. more

Delicious 6/9/2007

This is one of the better Mexican food restaurants I've found in Seattle. Being from the Southwest, I have pretty high standards but they were satisfied by Rosita's. The service is usually good, parking is decent to find, and the food is consistently good. My only complaints is it's a bit pricey for a Mexican food place. However, they carafes of sangria are delicious and the warm tortillas from the bar make the wait for food even better! Pros: Delicious food, free fresh tortillas Cons: Can get pricey more

Solid Mexican food with no suprises 5/30/2007

Yum- good Mexican food that doesn't go out on a limb with any of their dishes, but delivers solid food for families. This is one of my girlfriends' favorite places to eat out. The warm tortillas are delicious. Service is good and it is reasonably priced. more

Way to expensive!!! 6/5/2006

This place is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too expensive. Pros: Vegetarian options Cons: TOO EXPENSIVE, lots o' kids more

The Chuck E Cheese of Mexican? 6/2/2006

Maybe it was just my typical luck but we ran into anklebiters, and lots of them. Is that typical of this place? My wife says all the time she has been there for dinner it is. It was especially bad on my visit, kids running around everywhere. The funny thing is the "good" kids (and their parents) sat in awe as the little hellions ran amok. Pros: Margarita's, Happy Hour specials Cons: Kids, Prices more

A reliable favorite 11/9/2005

We love Rosita's and are frequent repeat customers. It is fairly uncomplicated food, but great margaritas and fresh tortilla bar. Great service, almost too fast because the atmosphere is fun to absorb and then your food is there before you know it. Worth a visit! Pros: Tortillas, margaritas, service Cons: Enormous portions more

Excellent restaurant 10/27/2005

Rosita's is excellent food, and an excellent price. The white meat chicken is fantastic, and service is always good. Food arrives extremely quickly. Occasionally you have to wait for your check, but you'll probably be too full to notice. The Greenlake location (Rosita's) has the atmosphere, the Broadview location (Luisa's) is more subdued and easier to get a table at. more

strongest margarita's in town 3/21/2005

they should put a 2 drink limit on them . . . and the corn tortillas are good too. more

My favorite Seattle Mexican restaurant 10/29/2003

I love this place. Always great food, almost always great service, and good value. The selection and options for vegetarians like myself is commendable and well-executed. They've even happily accommodate requests for no dairy when feasible. It has become a favorite place to meet among my group of friends, and by all accounts the carnivores among us love it too. The basic margarita is good, the fancier ones (Hornitos!) even better; the ambience is tasteful, comfortable and appropriate, not cheesy or cartoonish like some. There is an occasional wait to be seated, but enjoy a complementary tortilla w/salsa while-u-wait. Pros: Food, Service, Value Cons: occasional wait, limited parking more

Sloppy Hot Plate and Good! 5/7/2003

I've been going to Rosita's for a while and walk away happy every time. The dining room can get loud and they welcome families so you might consider a different place for romance. The bar is fun, drinks good, and the free, fresh made mini-torillas with butter and salsa really hit the spot. Check it out nex time you're in Green Lake. With your expectations set correctly it's sure to please. Pros: good food, good margaritas, free mini-tortillas Cons: can be loud, gets crowded more

Pretty good 4/2/2003

The food is better than some other Mexican restaurants in the area, but I always leave feeling that I've paid too much. I really like the tortilla bar, and their salsas are quite good. Pros: tortilla bar, salsa Cons: a little spendy more

Best salsa verde ever! 3/10/2003

Great inexpensive food, always fast service in the bar. Pros: Great service, The salsa Cons: Parking when busy more

Swankier sibling; not-as-good food 2/8/2003

Pretty good plate-style Mexican food, (think L.A., not San Fran) and a nice choice of good tequilas for margaritas. The Green Lake location is groovier, but the Crown Hill site has measurably better food (albeit a family-centric vibe). Pros: upscale-cantina vibe, pretty good food, busy on weekends Cons: better food @ holman, parking can be tricky more

Ole' 2/1/2003

Been going tp Rpsitas for about 5 years. The freshness is what I like. It's busy, and friendly. Both locations are great. The Holman Road tends to be roomier, but the Greenlake location seems to be more festive. Price is right. more

Hot off the grill and mariachi 11/20/2002

There are two really special things about this place, free fresh corn tortillas served hot off the grill with butter and salsa and a live mariachi band to play at your table on Thursdays (and the band is good, very pretty and bittersweet). We always get seated right away and the folks who work here are nice. Great food, very fresh. Ive never been disappointed. Pros: fresh corn tortillas, price is right, live mariachi more
