Not outstanding for Mexican. I've been really challenged since relocating to HSV in finding good, let alone authentic Mexican or Tex-Mex. The food is fine if you like tons of cheese, no spice, and one note flavours. It doesn't particularly fresh like really good Mexican. Just tastes satisfactory. I actually will skip work invitations that are to Rosie's. I can't do it more than once a quarter at the most.

Love Rosie's... so do most people in Huntsville so it stays pretty busy. It's always good and always served quickly. Never had a bad experience.

After reading the other reviews I think that we may have hit Rosie's on an off night. Our waitress seemed very distracted. It was not busy but it took at least 10 minutes to get our water and another 10 - 15 minutes before she reappeared to take our order. In the meantime the waiter at the next table brought us chips and salsa and he also ended up delivering our meal, which is probably why it was brought out much more quickly than anything else. We had a variety of dishes and most of them were very good. The shrimp quesadilla was very good with a sauce that was very different but added so much to the flavor of the dish. The supreme nachos chicken were also very good, served individually on a platter so that made it easy to share. The jalapeno bites were terrific - we all loved them! The only food flop of the night was the tortilla soup which was much too thick and quite bland. It was a nice meal and the prices are decent - I only wish my tip could have gone to the waiter that actually to care of us!

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant.
We strive to provide quality customer service and fresh and tasty menu selections for every guest that walks through our door. We are sorry to hear that your service was lacking from the server that was responsible for you and your group. We are glad that one of her teammates took it upon them self to make sure you were taken care of!! Thank you for the compliments on the menu items that you enjoyed. We will review with our staff at the next few pre-shift meetings the importance of being consistent in providing great customer service to every table they take care of.

Rosies is one of the most popular restaurants in Huntsville. Its typical Alabama mexican food. If you are into Tex-mex or real mexican you will be disappointed. If you want a good place to eat with atmosphere and great service head on over to Rosies.

My husband and I visited on a weeknight and it was pretty full. We sat at the bar and had full service. Very friendly, happy atmosphere. Neat decor outside like old backstreet.

Bartender was very friendly and accommodating. We had dinner. Food was good, good selection. Not as spicey as some Mexican restaurants. But good fresh food served very quickly.
