Fresh house made tortillas, a salsa bar, fast service... Can this be a corporate restaurant?

Last night I ate at Rosa's Cafe and Tortilla Factory in Cedar Park.  For fast food I'll have to say they are really good and certainly worth the coin.  You can choose from, I can't remember now, but maybe 60 different plates.  I don't think anything is over $7.  Walk in, order at the front, get your drink and find a table but don't get comfortable because your food is probably ready.  Just look for you number on the TV screens placed around the large dining room.  This is the best part, you get to eat on real plates with actual flatware.  No plastic sporks here.  They even have napkins on the table and offer honey to go with the extra tortillas you get with every meal.

I usually get the #1 Burrito Platter.  The burritos on this plate are more like overstuffed ground beef soft tacos but I'm not complaining.  You can fill them with the lettuce and tomato you get on the plate plus the salsa, pico de gallo, jalapenos, onions, cilantro and whatever else I forgot from the salsa bar.  The rice and beans are standard but tasty.  I like to add a little salsa to the rice to give it a little extra flavor.  And the portions are good for me.  Not too much and not too little.  They hit the Goldilocks zone on that one.

I was eating dinner with Cody this evening.  He had the chicken enchiladas.  You get two good sized enchiladas sauced with sour cream. I haven't tried their chicken but it looks like good quality breast meat.  I didn't ask what he thought but he cleaned his plate so I'm going to say he liked it.

Now for dessert.  You get a pack of extra tortillas with your order so add a little butter and honey and you have a sweet treat after dinner.  They make their tortillas in house so they're fresh and steaming hot.  It's just good for the soul.

That's it for Rosa's.  You just can't go wrong for a little more than fast food price and sit down meal experience.

Oh I forgot, they serve beer and frozen margaritas too.  How's that for muy bueno?
