Fat Rosie’s Taco & Tequila Bar - Frankfort
Always good food and great service
Fat Rosie’s is a quaint and festive place. The staff were friendly and efficient. The food and drinks were good; we received free shots at the end of our meal.
Fun place, great food and drinks. A happening places with great vibe!
Super busy Saturday night but was seated at the time we requested in Open Table. Servers friendly, amazing frozen strawberry margaritas, and delicious food. Had tacos and gauc. Everything was good. Some tacos came out a little cold but food came out fast. Steak tacos were my favorite. I’ll come back again.
The food was great! We were seated in the back room which was freezing. It was hard to enjoy our dinner when we were so cold. Also, the music was a bit loud. You could hardly hear the person sitting right next to you.
Food was great but felt rushed by server and busboy constantly circling and clearing when you put your fork down. If you ask for coffee, expect it to have cinnamon in it.
Always love to eat at the Frankfort location. Pozole is a little too thick but it’s still good. i just had a little water to it & squeeze lime juice to thin it out. Delicious
Good food and margaritas.
Love this place, food, drinks and service. Not only is the noise level over the top but then the music is loud enough for the voices to compete. Otherwise one of my favorite Frankfort restaurants!
Fat Rosie’s was a favorite but the restaurant has been getting too crowded and loud without enough staff. Food is always really good though.
Waitress was terrible she would never come back to the table. It took so long when she finally came back we asked for our dessert to go and check.
We love going to Fat Rosies and we would most definitely go on NYE if the opportunity presents itself again. Unfortunately, our server wasn’t as energetic as other servers. Some tables were getting hats, Leis, and shots... but we were not offered any of these items. It was the only unfortunate piece of our time there. Do give them a chance! The cauliflower tacos are AMAZING.
Carlos was an amazing server!!! Food and drink was most excellent. Can’t wait to get back!!
Had a party of 12 and the service was great. Great drinks and informative waitress. Have been before with a smaller party, but so happy to see 12 (4 of which were kids) people taken care of so quickly.
Hi Derek, Thank you for the wonderful words!! We pride ourselves on customer service and I could not be happier to hear this! We look forward to taking care of you again! Thank you, Caroline Manager
Very busy. Packed to the gills and very noisy. Food was great though.
The food is always delicious and it comes quick, however the reservation system definitely needs improvement. Every time we end up waiting a half hour minimum past the reserved time slot for our table
Fat Rosie's was a fun place for mexican food. If you can't handle a loud place, this isn't the restaurant for you. I'd recommend it to friends, the tacos were great and the waitstaff was very friendly.
Reservations mean nothing at this establishment. We waited 40 minutes for our table just like the walk-ins. Great food, great staff. Tables are packed in and very tight. Restaurant is extremely loud. It's very hard to have any kind of conversation.
Better to go during the day. I went in the evening on this last occasion and there were people hanging out at the bar while waiting in their table. However, the bar being congested crowded our table and other people were hovering/leaning over the table/food, placing their drinks on our table, and bumping into our chairs. It was very tight and not relaxing. But I have gone on the weekends in the afternoon and have felt the opposite. The food is good but overpriced and the servers were attentive as much as could be expected. Likely won’t go back in the evenings but do like this restaurant.
Honestly everything was pretty great minus the noise level. I picked this place for my family dinner. I’m 27 and my parents are 60 and even I thought it was WAY too loud. We literally had to scream at one another to hear anything. Should really consider turning down the music because that really made a great experience only OK.
Had to wait a bit for a table. Bartenders very busy. Once we were seated, our waiter Carlos was phenomenal. Food was excellent and portions were big!
Had a great Christmas Eve dinner at Fat Rosie’s!!
Had a great Christmas Eve taco dinner at Fat Rosie's! Fun atmosphere! Our waiter was great! And we enjoyed a complimentary tequila shot after!
Food is outstanding and a fun atmosphere!
Hostess wasn’t that nice and friendly. I requested the smaller room and she gave us a high top right next to the entrance.
Always a good time, just wish you could order off the regular menu all day and just not the brunch menu.
I had heard a lot of good things about Fat Rosie's and decided to try it. It was a Saturday night and it was very busy. We made a reservation and was seated immediately at a high top a few steps from the door. Because it is winter, every time the door opened a cold breeze hit us. There is a foyer between the outside and inside door. We asked the hostess if the inside door can be closed and said she could not help it because they were so busy. Our food came, which was very good. Our waitress asked if we were done with drinks and we said yes. Never offered dessert and brought our check. We had to ask if there was a dessert menu and the waitress said yes but she thought we were done. When the dessert came, we complained about the door again and the waitress blew us off and said they have no control over that and there is just too many people. The waitress dropped the check off nothing said about our issue and that was it. Finally, someone from the management staff spoke to us regarding the door issue before we left but at that time we were on our way out. I am recommending Fat Rosie's on the food alone. The staff really should be better trained on how to troubleshoot customer issues instead of not addressing it at all.
The food was great and service was excellent. The only thing that was aggravating and took away from our first time experience was that we were sat right in front of the liquor closet. My wife had to move 3 times for the staff to get in or out. When she moved her chair slightly forward the next time someone came to enter the closet they just pushed her with the door. I was disappointed that they would choose to sit people near a bothersome location. When we asked if we could be moved we were told it would be a while. It wasn’t worth the hassle at that point We did make reservations and were very much looking forward to our first visit, unsure if we will return based on our quirky first experience.
We had a holiday family meal on the night of our visit. After reading the menu, one of my sons saw the 3 lb burrito eating challenge. He took the challenge. He finished with 1 second to go and the whole room was chanting his name! Sophie was fantastic and we had a night to remember. Thank you!
All of their dishes tend to be spicier than a typical mexican restaurant. There is little ability to "go the mild" route when it comes to most dishes. My family likes it, but it's a bit too spicy for my tastes.
This is our go to in Frankfort. Kids and us love it. Chips in salsa immediately to occupy the kids. Service and food fantastic. It's an energetic place, my only wish is that the music was just a couple notches lower, especially when you are seated under a speaker. Nonetheless, it's well worth it every time.
The food and service is great!! I have gone two weeks in a row and the food continues to impress me and my family!!
Love Fat Rosie’s! It’s very loud however so if you are planning to talk a lot or have a business meeting this would not be the place.
Great dinning . Enjoyed the food and drink. Service from our waitress Stephanie was awesome. We cant wait to head back there . We just got back from Mexico and they made us feel like we were still there. Thanks
Asked to get a booth
A manager said none available
One was available they said it’s reserved for a other party
Then 5 minutes later a couple sat in that both.not reserved by them.
This is the second time this happens
Great food. Great service. Music is too loud. Can’t have a conversation
First time there and found that our server was outstanding. The food was good albeit a bit expensive. The noise level increased as the night went on so it became more of a sports bar noise than restaurant ambiance. Our server was absolutely wonderful, we had a group of 6 and all different tastes and he explained all the dishes to those who wanted clarification. I would say recommend
Great Tacos, loved the salmon taco. Tasty Salsa/Chips
The wife said it was a nice place food need a little more seasoning but overall was a nice place
