best I ever had – So i got a DUI for being .08? Anywayz went here best meal I ever had. Its across the street from the court LOL... really dark inside kind of like a cave.
Good service – Food, service and even ambiance is quite good. I love to go back there to bring my family.
Nasty – Do not, under any circumstances, order the "red enchiladas".
I ordered a "half order" of red enchiladas, to go. I went across the street, next to the county jail, to eat my lunch and discovered the following:
runny refried beans
UN-melted cheese both inside of and on top of the enchilada
really soggy tortilla
I don't recommend this dish. And really, I can't imagine that anything is really that good here. Good decore.
The Crab Enchiladas rock! – There's nothing better than coming down on a Friday evening and getting a plate of their Crab Enchiladas. Their pork chops are also amazing - tender and juicy. The refried beans and rice are good staples that are consistently dlicious.
The service is always friendly; expect a wait for your check if the place is crowded, though.
After 10 years of world travel - nothing on EARTH beats the Fried Chicken & Margaritas at the Rose. Don't look at the menu -> just say Pollo Frito e Margaritas (large pitcher, rocks w/ salt). You'll be back....guaranteed
