I used to live down the road from Rosie's, next to the Austin World of Archery, back in the early 70s while I attended UT Austin. I'd go there two or three times a week. The food was excellent; the service was "home kitchen" friendly; and the prices fit into a college student's budget 'n appetite. I am glad to see that Rosie's is still around. Stop by 'n sample anything.

I recommend the carne guisada, a simple stewed pork or beef recipe, served with refried mushy pintos 'n rice that's heady with comino seed. Also ask for some aguacate (sliced avacado) on the side. This dish is a staple in Jalisco in Mexico and throughout Texas.

One of these is a mere snack; three or four are a meal ... and an affordable meal, to be sure.
