Rosie’s is a rough-and-tumble roadside eat-place that sells excellent Mexican food at rock-bottom prices. The lunch menu is a broad selection of homemade tamales with or without chili, nachos, chalupas, burritos, and chili con queso. Tacos are available constructed in crisp corn, soft corn, or flour tortillas, and the choice of side dishes includes guacamole, red hot sauce, and green hot sauce.
During the week, Rosie’s opens at six am every day but Tuesday (when it is closed) to serve Mexican breakfasts that include plates of huevos rancheros, barbacoa, or carne guisada, as well as all sorts of breakfast tacos – name your filling. The choices include eggs, potatoes, beans, chorizo sausage, cheese, picadillo, and bacon. Any one-item taco is a dollar; two items = $1.25, three items = $1.50. For an additional 75 cents, a breakfast taco can be amended with discs of spicy sausage from nearby Elgin, Texas. Our favorite taco filling is migas, a combination of scrambled eggs, cheese, and broken-up pieces of crisp corn tortilla all cooked together until pieces of the tortilla begin to soften.
Rosie’s seating is outdoors at picnic tables adjacent to the parking lot.
