There’s a reason Rosita’s has been around for 40 years, and it might have something to do with the free bowls of chips. The kind that will inevitably get eaten in multiples of three before entrees even hit the table. Speaking of multiples of three, you should order the Super Special, which comes with a tamale, an enchilada, and a crispy taco. Chase it all down with a margarita that’s equal parts boozy and refreshing.
